All of them seem to work fine, though I must say the Bulgy polymer mags are my favorite. Very well made and rubust. I got mine from K-var a while back.

If you can get black poly bulgy mags for less than $11 each, buy them! Otherwise K-var still lists them for $10.99 and I think if you join the forum over there, you get a discount.

While they look a bit off on the polymer stock 74s, the lightly used E Ger. orange bakelite mags are by far the best deal. Otherwise spend twice as much on black Bulgy mags.
Which 74 did you get?

i got a bulgarian 1 i had a ak-47 and the stock beat the crap out of my jaw(broken in viet nam in 69) so i dont do big bore stuff but we could not figure out why it beat the crap out of me

my partner is a big time trainer so he swapped me a 74 for my 47

it has green furniture and we were hitting steel out to 200 yds sunday and thats not bad for a 59 yr old with bifocals

usually use a ar with a e0tec fpr all trg work
tricked out

probably will buy some of both as i am a hi mag kind of a guy.

will take the steel and turn od green to match
furniture. buy reddis 1's for the coolness factor

thanks to all am havng fun with it

bought 4000 rounds of barnal yesterday cant get over the pricing of this stuff. i am paying a lot more for l.c. 223


before the ban myself and 3 buddies bought 500 ar mags and since i have 5 prebans it seemed like a good idea. but this stuff is cheeeeeeeap


best to all.

Just a thought on the orange mags, I blacked all mine out using Dupli-color truck bed liner. Comes in a can for about $7 at Auto-Zone. Lightly sand and degrease and stand about 2-3 ft away and you get a tough textured finish. Just don't over do it or they won't fit. Used Alumi-hyde II as well and it sticks nicely, just takes forever and a day to cure completely.

Will it take out the wobble in the fit? Mine all wobble left-right and it makes a racket.

Noise (before opening fire) is bad, bad, bad.

Thanks.
