A friend of mine is interested in finding a spare mag. for his 7.62 Saicom Chinese handgun.

7.62mm and Chinese probably means Tokarev. Does it look something like this? If so, CDNN has them in stock.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it "Chicom," a shortening of "Chinese Communist?"

Yes, though usually I've seen it "ChiCom"...with the 2nd "c" capitalized. "Sino..." is another word you see in relation to Chinese stuff, as in a Sino-Soviet SKS, ie an early Type 56 SKS built by the Chinese using Soviet (Russian) parts in the mid-late '50s.

The ChiCom Tokarev in 7.62x25 should be able to use any standard Tokarev mag if it's a single stack model. There were some double stack 15rnd ones made by Norinco for the commercial market. If it was a 9mm model then things get tricky. Chinese 9mm Tokarevs come in two flavors, narrow mag & wide mag. Not sure if they made any 9mm double stack models.
Yugo Tokarev mags are 9 shot since their version had a longer grip. Not sure if the Yugo mags will fit a standard Tok, if they will they'd stick out the bottom a bit.

<eta> Upon further thought I think the double stack Chinese Tokarevs were 9mm instead of 7.62x25.

I got 5 for $25 somewhere a few months ago, but can't remember where. Try searching the web.
