I was gifted a few 5 round AK steel mags. Stamped China. Have 5 total now. I know having one is good for hunting/bench shooting. What to do with the other 4?

Yes I know you can modify them to be 10 rounders

I’ve got about a dozen of those. I’m saving all my Chinese stuff because Chinese AK stuff has been banned from import since 1994 and probably will remain that way. That means they will only go up in value over time. Right now though, they are worth about $12 each, so you could trade them for 30 round European mags.

^ Amen! $12 each sounds about right. I see these listed for $20-30 each, but they never sell.

Is there a plastic aftermarket follower available for these mags? I've always wanted to find some plastic followers, cut them down, and raise the capacity up to 8-10 rounds.

I dropped a weaponstech BHO follower in one of my Chinese 5 rounders, fits & works fine.

I think Apex carries (or carried) polymer followers too.
