    How about Valmet 7.62x39 mags? That would be a find and a half.

    You're killing me.

    I don't have any Valmet mags, but I do have a few pictures of them saved. They look very similar to the East German except for those floor plates. The side plates all also seem to have the five welds.

    No, there were 20-rounders made by other countries, but the vast majority are Hungarian for their AMD-65, Automata Módosított Deszant-65.

    Looking at one of my mags. On the spine it has those dot. I just noticed R Y on two dots and it skips one dot and N T B is on three other dots. Just curious to what that is. I have Chinese and Romanian mags. I thinking this is a polish mag but not to sure.

    On the Yugo mags I noticed that the rear of the "bullet shape" on the top of the follower is straight. Would that work as a kind of "bolt hold open" mechanism, at least until the mag is removed?

    Now that I know that (and because I have a Yugo M70B), I would like to find some of these Yugo mags. Any sources??

    I do not know of any sources, but expect to pay a hefty premium for that rather useless feature.

    It is actually already a sticky. There was a problem with all the posts I had done about a year ago that were basic reference materials. Basically, all the posts were suddenly locked out. I alerted DJNiner to this and he was kind enough to "refresh" some of the posts. There are still a few posts that need to be fixed from that series though.

    Awesome thread Carlos. :cool:

    I have a particular mag and was wondering about it's country of origin. According to your info, it looks like it is a Hungarian.

    I just saw one of those mags in person. Brand new it seemed, wrapped and all gooed up. Interesting. I'm, sure they work fine, but I passed.

    And, I second Aim Surplus for mags. Great prices, great company.
