Why are there no aluminum AK magazines?

The Soviets did make a limited number. I think that there is a picture of one in the mag pic. thread. Very rare and very,very pricey.

I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere (perhaps on this forum) that they made them but stopped because they didn't hold up very well or something like that.

here's a picture I found:

Aluminum mags are flimsy, pathetic little things.

It's almost like putting an AR stock on your AK.
