I just purchased my first AK type rifle and would like to get some mags for it. I am not sure where I can find the mags for it or if it will take standard AK mags. It is a IZHMASH SAIGA imported by EAA and It is in like new condition. Thanks

It won't take AK mags without modification...

Izhmash Saiga makes 5rd(Europe), 10rd(standard US), and they make 30rd magazines that only fit Saiga mag opening. These can only be used on other AK's with modification.

5rds: Doug Ford/Tantal has em.

10rds: Ebay, Gunbroker, AuctionArms, etc.

30rds: mostly bought out. EAA isn't selling. Oleg@Rusmilitary is out. You could try andrei/Ruseller....99.00 before shipping!

There is one in the AK accessories forum for sale right now. MASTERY is selling one. IM him.

I haven't paid more than 60.00 for one. Average was 40.00. Glad I got my 20 mags early on!

I found some links to modified AK magazines that work in a SAIGA. Anyone had any expirence with these mags?

Some guns will run with them. Most will need a bullet guide installed.
I did some work on one for a guy I shoot with, his will now run with any ak mag WITHOUT a bullet guide. This is not common and I didn't have to grind on the chamber mouth.

Making the bullet guide is a little time consuming but not that hard realy. I did it in my .223 and it works great.

Welcome to the joy of Saiga ownership! Just convert the SOB to a pistol grip. I think the saiga 12 website has instructions. I had mine done but could have done most of it in retrospect. They truly are the shit.

Just bought 7 10 round magazines off gun broker and after some google searching i found a site that sells 30 round mags new in the pack from SAIGA. www.trapperindustries.com/. I purchased 5 from them and they give a 10% discount if you buy 5 or more!
