I just picked up some new black Bulgarian 74 30rd mags. The followers in the mags and floorplates look brand new, but the the machining on the front, rear and top of the polymer bodies look very rough as though someone took a rough file to smooth the edges from the 2 sides of the polymer body meeting together at the seam. Is this normal of Bulgarian workmanship? I know AK rifles and mags are built for reliability and comestics are last on the list. Any info would be appreciated if these mags I purchased were brand new... Stan

I looked at mine and the polymer "welding" on the front and back do look a bit odd. Kind of like a glue gun type procedure was used to put the 2 halves together and then extra scaped or filed off. Probably just the way they are made.

Good discription,


The mags are 100% brand new my man. Most if not all of the Bulgarian mags have the "file" marks to some degree. Some more than others. I will stand behind them 110%. If you are not happy with them I will send a complete refund + return shipping fees +10% of the total for the time and trouble to return them. Let me know what I can do.



Now THAT'S customer service

Those Polymer Bulgarian mags may be rough at the seams but they are the toughest magazine body I have ever seen. crushproof and rustproof what else do you want in a mag body?

Sometimes the tops look rough. If it runs, no big deal. And 99% of them will in my experience.

I had one black bulgy that flat refused to work, in any of my 74's. It would feed the first round and then the second would not feed. It would jam the round just below the chamber. I compared it to another and notice it lacked any "work/file" marks. I took a file to the top and side of the feed lips. It's 100% now, functions just fine. FWIW.
