AK mags...what would you get and why?
« on: May 13, 2014, 09:40:37 AM »
I know very little about manufacturers and reputations.  Anyone have experience or thoughts on the topic?  My brother brought a bunch of Tapco's for his AK and I couldn't even get them into mine.  I have a nice 20 lb steel 20 round
mag that works perfectly so I might be inclined to stick w metal unless I'm just missing out on something.  The gun is comprised of parts from several different regions and it might have some tactical wanna be furniture on it. 

What would you buy and why?

I like the plastic Magpuls. Work well, are well made, pretty much indestructible. Steel ones I have gotten are marginal on fit and retention, the PMAG Magpuls are solid and spot on. Drive over one with your truck and try it. (They had a video showing then driving a full size Chevy over one and then using it.)

I think the majority of guys I know who run AKs regularly are using circle 10s.
