If anyone knows where to get any of the mags on my "need" list please let me know.
I have a few of the new style AK-74 mags in black polymer from the Izhevsk factory (these have a new and odd clover leaf S, G, A, on the opposite side from the triangle and arrow) to trade, and of course there is always cash.
Didn't see Polish steel 5.45x39 anywhere on the list, or Romanian 40 round steel (RPK74). Edit: also missing Norinco and Polytech 5.56 30's. Also the less common Norinco 5.56 40 and Polytech 5.56 drum.
Don't have any to part with, just thought I'd point 'em out. I'm still working on the latter of the two...
Edit: Ohio Rapid Fire has a deal on the Bulgarian 5.45 mags, they've got the brown and red.
Being a Viet Nam War veteran.......I didn't happen to see the rare "China-Lake" Metal AK47 30-rd magazines that were "booby-traps" for the NVA/VC coming down the "Trail"...these were inserted into web-gear and left on/planted by SOG (and other troops) to mess with their unit moral...not knowing when an AK47 might blow-up in their face. Examples of these surface from time-to time in the US from collctions. A very interesting AK47 magazine to say the least. Stateside examples were Deactivated examples. Just remember, we never did anything like this to poor "Charlie"....
Also forgot the 40rd bakalite Russian mags, and the 30rd Russian brown waffle mags.
OK, Who has pics of the rare ones? I need pics to send guys so they know what to look for!
Thanks for all the help though, but you bastages are going to make my wife pretty pissed off at me.
