For those that don't know, Magpul announced their AK PMAG is headed out to the masses. Here's a review of a advanced sample I got my paws on:

Pros:
-100% reliability in 5 rifles tested in
-Durable, Magpul quality
-Gen M3 PMAG marking system
-Grooves in the follower line up with grooves in the mag body to create a follower that is virtually impossible to generate tilt on.
-922r points
-Flared floorplate for pulling out of mag pouches

Cons:
-The big one is that there is no steel reinforcements. But, it's coming….

Cool deal, in for part II and the inimitable Mrgunsandgear drop test !

Waiting for the metal re-inforced models before I buy, but these look like they may be a great alternative to Pormags and Crapcos for range mags?

With Magpul's reputation, I'm sure the mags are durable. With quality polymers, metal reinforcements are not required. The Polish Beryl mags lack metal reinforcements and work just fine.

How much spring is there compared to surplus? The tapcos have a shorter weaker spring.

I'm more excited to see if they keep the design the same when they make the steel reinforcements

I like the grooves for the follower and the other magpul designs

hopefully they keep this up and make some 5.45 mags too

I disagree with you

magpul needs to release the metal reinforcement mags

hopefully they will directly compete with (10) mags

these are glorified tapco mags

I would really like a 5.56 one I lucked out and bought circle 10 mags for $30ea and now the cheapest I can find them is $45 magpul would have done better IMHO with 5.45 and 5.56 ak mags their is already a good supply of cheap 7.62 mags

It's a Radom 11 but he couldn't drop it because it wasn't his. We ran from the Polish 11. I agree with the guy who called them glorified Tapcos. Why bother? Apex has 3 steel for $40.

I don't understand. They are going to have both all-plastic and metal-reinforced-plastic magazines on the market? Or plastic mag 1.0 will be replaced by metal-reinf mag 2.0?

That's where I'm confused as well. But from what I understand they will have both and the non metal reinforced will be a little more expensive. I don't know why they are not just making all metal reinforced mags.

Magpul took a year to develop and test this magazine, do you really think they're going to release a whole redesigned one within such a short time?

Also i found them for Pre-order: 13.25 Preorder Magpul AK pmag
