I think it is just an unrelated mark by another manufactuer. HK did make some HK32 series rifles in the early 1970's in 7.62x39 but were quickly dropped. Those rifles used a standard HK box design curved for the 7.62x39 round.

On the bottom the mag 'dimple' is elongated, not snubby (Sort of like GT receiver dimples) and it is blued, not parked.

Sounds like you have a East German or Russian mag.

They had blued ones (for blued AK47s) as well.

Do you know why they were dropped?
Lack of interest or gun problem?

The answer is probably in your question.. WHY??? Why the extra expense compared to the readilly avalible AKMs on the world market? I think most potential customers that would be interested in the cartridge, would look towards the AKM..
