Korean AK mags

Have any of you bought any of these? Are they any good? I bought two and have had no trouble with them but I have only put about 60 rounds through each.

I bought 5 of them during the 2012 panic for cheap, and I use them as my "sacrificial"/loaner range mags. I've never had a catastrophic malfunction with them per se, but they sometimes hang up in the mag well when I'm trying to extract quickly.

Another thing about them that I don't like is the construction of the double layer feed lips, which have caused additional difficulties during insertion. The finish appears to be like cheap wheel paint (metallic grey and sort of glittery), and the followers squeal when I cycle by hand, but never any ftf; the springs are good though, suprisingly.

Overall, they're not on par with my Polish and Chinese mags, but they do the job. iirc, I bought them for $8 per at Wideners, but they're not worth more than that and I won't be buying any more.

AKs are not typically mag picky. If they fit, they should work. I have several of these Korean mags, they fit about as regularly as my european ones - either too tight at the mag catch lip or too loose, no more frequent. I have had to file some of the lip on both asian and european to fit my saiga. Same with the polymers.

Tapcos can be real wide, and tight-- good for those AK's with side to side wobble.

I bought two a while back just to try out. They are fine. They work fine and all. I had to file off a bit of the mag catch to get them to be able to fit but after that no issues.

They wouldn't fit my Sgl-21 or Sar 1. I buy surplus and I've never had a problem.

I bought a few of them earlier this year and they've run great in my SGL-21. I've run about 300 rounds thru them so it isn't like they've been torture-tested but for what I paid for them I'm satisfied.

I never bought mine intentionally. Ammotogo tried to pass them off on me as surplus back in the panic.
