    There are countries that have 15 round magazine limits and they have AK mags in that size. Some are factory new but others are converted. In the US you might be able to find the 15 round Valmet magazines but expect them to be expensive. Otherwise there are plenty of cheap double stack 10 round magazines around.

    You may or may not be able to get Saiga magazines to function. Besides modifying the front of the magazine to clear the bullet guide, the Saiga magazine catch is higher than an AK and the shelf on the rear of the Saiga magazine will sit lower than normal in an AK.

    Would NJ allow one that had been made standard cap but permanently modified to accept 15 rounds, if so you could probably find someone in a free state to do the work for you. Maybe try a WTB ad here on GT

    TAPCO or Cheaper than Dirt has +5rd followers intended to convert 5rd mags to 10rds. I would try getting a 10rd mag and one of those +5 followers and see what happens. Also do note that at least in regard to the 5rd and 10rd mags in 7.62x39 from China, they sometimes came in different body lenghts.

    Thanks Ted. I had the same idea about the +5 follower about a month ago. I contacted Tapco and asked them if it would work in their 10 round mags. They took a few days to try it out. They told me that it would not work. They made it for 5 round steel mags and is too tight in their poly mags. The only 10 round steel mags that I came across were single stack. Do they have double stack 10 round steel mags? Thanks again.

    My Chinese 84S AK uses 15-rounders but they are 5.56 and about $75 each now.

    You could check out this guy:

    I know of him from the AKFiles.com. He can probably hook you up.

    Wow...
    I just noticed this is from 2010.
    This new forum format is taking a bit to get used to...
