Avoid them, they pretty much suck.

You want Polish, Romanian, Hungarian or other Warsaw Pact Military mags.

Indestructable and dependable as a hammer.

How many mags are you looking for?

I have a bunch of the Hungarian mags and can strongly recommend them...function perfectly in all of my AK-pattern rifles.

These are supposed to have a bolt hold open follower?

There are many reports that they need modified to fit most rifles and I have a couple that needed a little work with a file to fit

This is the answer you seek. Any combloc surplus is what you want.

Whatacountry.com has about the best prices going on milsurp combloc mags and extremely fast shipping. Last ones I received from them were completely submerged in cosmoline -- kind of felt bad for taking them out of their cosmoline cocoon.

It pays to make a small list of mag vendors and check them regularly if you are looking for mags, I got 25 Hungarians a couple weeks ago from another vendor, 10.50 each on sale.

What vendor did you get the Hungarians from at $10.50 each?

The Croatian mags seem to look good as far as build quality goes.

I got a Harbor Freight belt sander and it made quick work of the area that needs to be ground down.

A quick touch up with some cold blue and they are good to go.

I haven't done extensive testing but every mag has so far locked up good, fed ammo great and locked back on the last round.

I have one Croatian mag. It malfunctions every now and then in my VEPR and M92.

Locks in, but I just don't trust it.

I would recommend the Hungarian mags.

Next time I'm in PA, I could sell you some mags in person. I have about 40 of them. Steel 30 and 40, Bulgarian plastic 40. Quality stuff that doesn't jam. I'm getting out of the AK market and going more toward ARs. If you're still looking for mags, send me a PM. I might wait till I'm back in PA or maybe I'll just make a listing on the equipment exchange. I bought these years ago when they were $9.
