I thought I would share my experience with these mags.

Well packaged.
Rock solid.
Priced right.

BUT......The steel plate on the back which is part of the catch, is thick. So thick I cannot insert the mag in the gun. It would probably work with some grinding. As you can see the thickness of this piece is quite significant. Other than that they are well made.

I have an NPAP.

These are really good mags...tight fit. YouTube videos on making the "tight" ones fit better.

What do you use to repaint the part you grind?

So I measured the Croatian mag and it is 1/16 of an inch bigger front to back than my Magpul mag. It won't even fit in far enough to come close to the support pin. This is because of the thickness of the plate on the back.

I had to file mine in a couple of spots. Youtube has a few videos on it. Or you can remove your dust cover and bolt carrier group, Insert mage to see where it is hanging up and file as necessary. I did not have to take off much. They fit very well now and function flawlessly.

I had to grind on all of my croatian mags in my WASR and atlantic DDR build.

Not a yugo or serb rifle but similar experience

I had to file all of mine down as well and I won't be buying more since I don't like the way the followers load.

Although I had to modify them to fit my NPAP, they fit perfectly into my SAM7R without any modification at all.

Perfect fit.

Are these the mags Palmetto has the cases on special occasionally?
