    They just came in today so I have not had a chance to try them. Anybody have experience with them? Any issues?

    Thanks!

    I couldn't agree more!

    People bash Tapco but I hear only good things about their magazines....especially their AK mags.

    I'm still looking for the RED ones though, anybody in the know?

    Thanks!

    I have two Test and Evaluate Tapco AK mags that they sent me to review and give feedback on when they first came out. The first one was lacking in some areas and once the feedback was given, they sent me a revised version and I've had zero problems with either one, although the original was a tad weak on the tab where it locked back, the second one was beefed up all in the right areas.

    They actually fit more snug than a standard metal magazine so sometimes people may or may not have fitment issues. If they fit and lock in fine, you shouldn't have a problem.

    They all lock in nice and tight - and I love the orange color....reminds me of the Russian bakelite mags. I can't wait to give them a workout!

    Tapco's first success with mags were the SKS detachable ones. Before then they just made crappy mags. Hopefully these work well for you.

    I had better luck out of Tapco magazines in my AK than I did of surplus steel.

    I kinda like the looks of those.

    I might buy a couple of the orange ones for giggles but I think that I'll stick with the commies mags for the nasty stuff.

    For the same reason I bought a suppressor....

    Because I didn't have one. That's the simple answer.

    I just don't see the big deal. All of the surplus AK mags I've used have been 100%.

    I have between 60 and 70 various AK mags but I have only ever used the Chinese 30- and 40-rounders. Most of mine are surplus and seem solid, I just haven't had a lot of time to get to the range lately, and the only decent outdoor rifle range here is state-run......which means IT SUCKS!

    I wish I owned 100 acres in North FL!:crying:
