What is the best way to stretch these? Picked two up at the funshow this weekend and one is tight but I can get it closed but the other is about an inch short in closing. I have tried to put the mags in different ways but nothing seems to work. Or are the waffle mags a tad bit longer than the steel mags?

Thanks. Played with them tonight. The one pouch had three steel mags and one waffle. That one was the one that I was able to close but was tight. I switched the mags to the other pouch and got it to close tight in that pouch. I put the remaining waffles in the first pouch and it closed. Just had to ge them to stretch out some more. Looks like they did wash the pouches so they may have shrunk.

If they won't loosen up enough I will try soaking them and putting the waffles in them.

chances are the pouch that won't close is for AK-74 mags!!!!!

East germans had one for the AK-74 and one for the AK-47

the steel AK-47 won't go into the AK-74, unless you about pop the stiches

if you want to sell it to me I'll take it.....I need another EG 74 pouch

You can tell by the way the loops are, they are metal loops for the AK 47 that the cloth goes through
for the AK-74 it is a metal (green painted) loop that goes through a another loop (metal painted) and then the cloth goes through it

the AK-74 also has an extra "grabber" on the cloth stap that goes through, its not on the AK-47

That's what I have. Unpainted metal tabs that fit through an unpainted metal slots and then the cloth keepers. Are these for the 47 or 74? TIA

those my friend are for the steel 7.62x39 AK-47

If it won't close something weird is going on

is there any discoloration or smelllike there could have been a crap load of mildew sometime?

No nothing "fishy" smelling about them. Got them to fit just had to stretch it out after the vendor obviously washed them in probably hot water to clean them up prior to the show. I did check the mags side by side and the waffles are only a hair longer and a tad bit wider. That may be my problem. I have 5 waffles and three steel in the two pouches.

you just need to sell me the waffle ones so you can have all steel ones that fit

Nichts, nein, dis est meine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good try though. I like keeping the waffles in the pouches and the steel in the cans in bags. Now I just need to get three more waffles and then build up the supply of steel.
