Checkout www.ammunitiontogo.com. They have unissued Yugo mags. for $13.95. That seems like a pretty good deal to me.

And, I second Aim Surplus for mags. Great prices, great company.
The two mags with the different locking lug/mag catch, (Top mag), are working perfect for me. In fact unless you are looking at the mag, while standing at the range reloading, you can't tell that mag from any other. They lock up just as tight as the others.

Thanks for the source. That is barely more than a typical (generally slightly used) price.

Great info. Thanks.

Of course now I am going to have to go down to he basement and look to see what my mags I have. I think most of them are Chinese since at one time I had 5 Chinese AKs and 10 mags per gun. Sold 4 of the 5 but kept most of the mags. I do have a SAR1 however and bought a pack of 20 round AK mags a number of years ago to go with my Saiga (the 20 rounders looked better with the Saiga)


UPDATE:

I went and looked at the mags I have readily available. I found 9, 8 of them in two mag pouches. Of the 9 two were matt black with no markings. A couple appeared to be the Romanian ones (probably came with my SAR1) with no markings. The others were blued mags with uniform welds like on the E.German mags. They had a variety of markings along the spline which included...

L H (with about an inch in between those letters)
C H (again with them separated)
Either O R or O K
P C
U B
2 K C
P C except the top of the P was cut off.

I will try and get pics if interested

AK47 Mag - What is it?

I have a few 40rd AK47 mags with an "A" stamp on the rib or the body. One has extra weld marks. What are these "A" stamped 40rd mags?

Thanks for this thread! I'm just doing the groundwork for my post-divorce present to myself (4-5 months I am told) which will probably be an Arsenal and hopefully a side folder if they ever resupply. So I wanted to give thanks and selfishly tag this for ease of finding later on down the road. Anyone have experience with the U.S. palm mags? They seem interesting and would not look half-bad on some of the newer arsenals.

Not odd, and not rare either. Just not as popular as the 30rd magazines.

I couldn't believe the construction of the AK mags, when I got my first AK. I didn't think one would ever need replacing, they're so heavy. I got a WASR that had a mag with it that absolutely would not work. It must have been run over by a tank.

Here are a few more


Bulgarian clear polymer 40-round magazines

The Kalashnikov Klub


Russian Izhmash bakelites. Mold numbers are different. Note the Cyrillic mold number on the far right

The Kalashnikov Klub


Russian Slabside

The Kalashnikov Klub


Bulgarian Circle 10 Waffle Mags - probably the best polymer-based magazine. Steel lined, with the double circle 10 at the bottom and distinctive waffle rib pattern

The Kalashnikov Klub


Chinese Triangle 36 Drum - technically not a magazine but well, it's a drum magazine

Carlos,I have 3 40 rounders that I can't Identify with what you have posted. They have a few numbers on the face at the bottom of the ribs(3's and 4's). All of them have a star in a circle at the top of the back rib. They also have triangles with numbers inside them. They have random numbers on the back rib too. In the first pic you can see the flat part of the mag that goes into the ak has a 45 degree angle on it, not sure if that means anything or not. I noticed some of the mags you showed didn't have that. Thanks,

Danny

Hi Danny...my first guess would be Russian Tula mags. A closeup of the magazine markings would be real helpful though because I don't recall seeing any steel Tulas before.
