So, I just got one of these Bosnian Fluer de Lisle marked magazines and I was wondering if there was a market for some more.  For those of you that aren't familiar, these mags are pretty scarce, in fact, much more scarce then most varieties of Russian mags.  What better accessory for all these cool Balkan War relics we've been building?!?!

Condition will range from used, to very used and there will be some that have the original unique spring/follower, and some that had springs replaced with standard Yugo magazine springs and followers.

I figure price will probably be between $100-$150 depending on condition and spring.  I expect to have no more then eight of them.  LMK your thoughts (BTW -- this isn't a "list" I'm starting, but posting here that you want one would help me know who to contact first).

yeah, unfortunately collector stuff is never cheap.  i always tell my wife that when i die the stupid accessories i have will be worth more than the guns.

Please don't forget about me on this one.

I'll send payment whenever.

will do.  it will probably be a month plus until i can get them -- my source guy is away from home for work for a bit.

Just so I remember. This is appropriate for my Serbian marked Yugo AK right?

Not the muslim side right?

i suppose in war these mags would have been in the hands of anyone who found them, but they'd have originated from Milosevic's boys.

Gotcha. I have a small fleur de lis on my stock....works out great i guess.
Link Posted: 4/12/2006 5:19:17 PM EST
yep -- you'll be the shit then!  

send me a pic of your stock set???

i had one of these mags a year or so ago and decided to sell it because i figured i'd never get another.  imagine my shame when i finally built up an M70AB2 kit -- LOL!  I was real glad to locate these and figured others would enjoy them as well (if i can make it happen).

My uncle served in Kosovo for a year and brought back a bunch of AK accessories, including a box of "Fleur de Lisle" magazines. I have around 6-7, he still retains the rest....Kinda cool, but I'll stick with traditional Yugo AK magazines. I new they were rare, but I didn't figure the would be worth 100.00 a piece or more.

i had two others in the past and sold them both for over $150.......

welp, bad news.  

looks like my guy sold them before i could get them stateside so atleast for now, no dice.  i may be able to get some in the future, or i may be able to get bosnian mags without the fluer de lisle, but we'll have to see.

I believe the french boy scout emblem was used by the croats in the war, although I could be wrong.  I shouldve brought back a bunch of mags when I was in Bosnia in 02', if I only knew then what I know now.

Fuck..........





I will have money if you ever do. Remember 762hurts. This is about all I need to make my Yugo set-up better.

Someday Im gonna visit Bosnia again, Id like to see how Tuzla looks now.

i want one of those mags...............

I am VERY interested...  I should really read the whole thread before I reply...
Link Posted: 5/7/2006 11:59:37 AM EST
So.....Who's got these bad boys for sale?

Link Posted: 5/7/2006 12:59:43 PM EST
The "fleur de lis" or "liljan" was the symbol of the Bosnian 'Muslim' faction and is only identified with them.  So these magazines would have been issued to the ABiH or Bosnian Army, largely Muslim (although not entirely).

Croats use a 'checkerboard' looking insignia, I've forgotten the name.

Serbs use a cross, or a cross with four cyrillic "S"s (these look like "C"'s).

Hope this helps.

Doubt my Serbian marked M70 would make sense with a bosnian marked mag really......

This is the Serbian slogan usually translated as "only unity saves the Serbs."  

We used to joke that it was "Samo Sloga, Srbina Spavama" or "spavam" (my cases are off this a.m.) meaning something like "all Serbs should sleep together."

It sounds derisive but it might have another meaning to you if you've spent time on the beach at Budva chatting with the hotties from Novi Sad and Beograd.

However, since the Bosnian war's been over for almost a dozen years, hopefully this thread won't degenerate into another Balkan pissing match.

It is all fascinating to me though.......

So the Croats are Catholic right?

The Serbs are Orthodox?

And the rest are pre-dominately Muslim?

But they are all spred out in each others countries?

How the hell do you fight a war with no front line?



oops....nevermind...I've been to Somalia once..., and Iraq....twice....lol
