I am going to be getting an AK-47 here in the near future and I am starting to stock up on mags. I was looking at some of the polymer mags and would like to go that route since they would be a little easier for maintenece and they are lighter then the steel mags. Are the polymer mags as reliable or should i stick with steel? Any input would be appreciated.

There has been some people that have reported hairline cracks in the Polish polymer mags but they don't affect function, I haven't got any so no first hand knowledge. I do have some Bulgarian waffle mags and they are excellent mags. I have used both steel and waffle mags in my 2 AK47s and AMD 65 and have no problems with any of them. I like the waffle mags that I got from K-Var

I prefer the Bulgarian waffle mags.

Just my opinion:

Bulgy Waffles mags are the best you can get.

Polish Polymere mags suck....they break right away....they may still work, but I don't like boken mags.

I bought a few of the Bulgarian waffle mags, and overall, like them. I did have to do a bit of filing of excess plastic, to get them to fit in easily, but after that, they've been fine. And I do like the weight reduction too.

I have both, Polish and Bulgarian magazines and they work great. The Bulgarian Waffles seem to be a bit more sturdier then the Polish mags but no complaints
