    If you're a collector and want an ishevsk marked mag, then go for it. If you're a shooter, you can get two, three or four for the same price.

    I have one for my red bakelite Polytech sidefolder. It was in a big box of AK mags at the LGS. 20 bux out the door. If I needed one I'd probably pay $40.

    I agree...if you are a true collector, or planning on being one, and need that version, then go for it. If you're planning on being a collector of AK mags however, I would warn you that collecting AK mags is like trying to collect one of every version of AKs ever made.

    honestly im not doing it for the collectors value of it cause im gonna use it and shoot it and im not that rich to become a collector anf buy every variant of an ak and mags and bayonet cause i would if i was well off... Just like the mag and think it looks cool and is it worth the price as a shooter...

    In that case, no. Buy the surplus steel mags.

    Up a tree.
    Bakelite is about the oldest, cheapest, and crappiest excuse for plastic (polymer in GT speak) in the modern world. Since you want it for shooting rather than collecting, I'd steer clear and get one made out of almost anything but Bakelite. It's weak & brittle crap compared to what's been invented in the past 50 years or so.
