I've not acquired a rifle yet, but a PSA is in my near future... I want to start acquiring some mags while the getting is good... I know nothing about the AK platform, and what prices are acceptable.

I don't really have any expectations or favorites... I mean, if some surplus stuff is good, that works... if some outfit like Magpul is the way to go, that's all good too.

I just want stuff that works, is available/readily obtainable, and is affordable to stock up on... I will say those bakelite russian mags are really fuggin' cool looking, but a quick price check looks like those are not so affordable... ... maybe one or two for kicks at some point in time..

thanks for the help!

Surplus steel mags are the most reliable. Chinese,Russian,Bulgarian,Romanian,Hungarian,­Albanian,Yugoslavian,German,polish etc. Anything from a country that issued AK's.

Should be able to find some for under $15, few years ago under $10 few years before that under $5 the price is going up and availability is going down.

Tapco mags for $5 are good until the plastic locking tabs or feedlips wear out.

Commercial mags such as South Korean or Croatian are not as good as surplus.
