Anybody know more about these? www.aimsurplus.com/acatalog/New_Magazines_.html

The pic says 7.62x39 yet appears to be a 5.45 mag? Sent 'em an e-mail....

Looks interesting... at $14.95 you can't hardly go wrong.
Link Posted: 4/25/2003 5:07:01 PM EDT
Yeah, probably won't hear anything 'til Monday since I e-mailed 'em late. The only books I have that show synthetic Polish mags are on 5.45 and 5.56 rifles...

If they're anything like the image, they should resemble Russian mags. Might have to order 10

Is it just me or do they look PLUM!

Whatever they are they're Polish, and that can't be bad.

The polish AK-100 style grips I had were better than the Bulgarian ones. I am tempted to order the mags, but will wait till I see some, the price should drop by then too.

Just like a Pollak! Makes mags for an ak-47 and they work in a 74.

Let's see here:

1. Inflatable dart boards
2. Solar powered flashlights
3. "One shot" pistols with backwards facing barrels

the list goes on and on

Don't even get me started on Italians

They gotta be 7.62 * 39 - Just different from Bulgarian.. . I don't think Aim would screwed up on it. It has the longer look ...
Link Posted: 4/27/2003 7:39:51 AM EDT
Could be a substitute pic, but they sure do look like a 5.45, with the slight curvature and all.

I wonder if the pic is correct and the ad copy is wrong -- the steel Polish mags are 7,62 and the poly Polish mags are (actually) 5,45 but were incorrectly listed as 7,62?

Looks like I'll be calling Middletown tomorrow.

must buy more mags!!!! hopefully there 7.62 I already have way to many 5.45 mags of various origin and a 7.62 polish bakelite/synthetic would be nice!!
Link Posted: 4/27/2003 9:10:21 PM EDT
i'm really interested. I think i'd still prefer the bulg waffles over these but I am wondering if these really are 7.62x39 mags. The only slab/flat sided mags I have seen like that are the Bulg 5.45 magazines, I have about 10 of them. They come in brown and black.

someone get the word on these!
Link Posted: 4/27/2003 9:25:00 PM EDT
Yes the Polish did make 7.62 black plastic mags. They should have 7.62x39 on the left side and the the mold number will be 1 or 2. These mags are slab side like Russian 103 mags and have been expensive to get from collectors. Should be cool if they have them. And yes, the pic is of a 5.45 mag. Either Aims pic guy screwed up or we are getting black plastic Tantal (5.45) mags.

wow maybe they are more like a plum color and will match my russian plum color better
Link Posted: 4/28/2003 11:20:55 AM EDT
call made for two!

They said they don't have them in today but should get them in a day or two.
Link Posted: 4/28/2003 11:59:44 AM EDT
I heard they are more like the Russian mags and are definately 7.62x39.

I also heard that the pic on AIM's sight is a 5.45 bulgie mag but the 7.62 Polish are very similar construction and will look much more like an AK-103 mag. I am buying 10!!!!
woohoo

they have a purple tint to them I guess too??/
Link Posted: 4/28/2003 3:47:00 PM EDT
Well, are they black or are they plum-packing purple pride? Someone let us know as soon as they get one in their hands.
Link Posted: 4/28/2003 5:08:48 PM EDT
E-mail I got from AIM was that they are 7.62x39 mags (Russian 5.45 mag used for the pic).

If they're in stock wednsday, I should have at least 2 and a better description.

So far, so good. Doubt we'll ever see any poly 7.62 mag for less than $10 per, $15 ain't bad sight unseen.
Link Posted: 4/28/2003 5:37:32 PM EDT
That "in stock by wednesday" always scares the crap out of me. I never trust anything to come out of customs on time.
Link Posted: 4/28/2003 5:43:39 PM EDT
talked with steve and they are past customs and on the road to AIM,I ordered 10,what can I say Im a sucker for price breaks

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, looks about right to me!
Link Posted: 4/29/2003 1:24:41 PM EDT
Yes they are 7.62x39mm. It is cast on the side. They look black with a possible blue tint but more black. They come wrapped five in a nice wrap. You CAN'T go wrong with these. They came from the same supplier as the PM-63 post samples I have in bond.

I talked to them this morning at 10:30 they said they were in stock . I got 20 i should have them by Wednesday evening ? We will see .
Link Posted: 4/29/2003 5:16:15 PM EDT
Hold on! You magaholics are gonna make these $14.95 mags as a scarce as the original soviets at the rate you're buying them! Seriously!
Link Posted: 4/29/2003 6:21:44 PM EDT
I bought them ALL this morning. Wait until you see the price "I" will be selling them for.

Muha!
Link Posted: 4/29/2003 6:31:01 PM EDT
I couldn't take it anymore and I order the 50 mag package.

I can't wait to see dealers buy these and then jack the price to 22.00 a piece or something.

ok..... I wish. But I grabbed 10 while I still can.
Link Posted: 4/29/2003 7:46:49 PM EDT
Alrighty, I was saving my pennies until the ammoman got some more of the English AR mags in stock, but I couldn't take it anymore and put my order in for 10.

Rotdorn - I'm basing this off your PSA - hopefully there won't be any self-kicking involved later on.
Link Posted: 4/29/2003 7:55:54 PM EDT
supposedly they have a two, maybe 3 months supply

I laugh at that!!!!! Maybe 2-3 weeks

I bet they sold 1/2 in the past 4 days or whatever

There will be no self-kicking allowed here!

*AIM updated the pic...

That's right. Instead, we'll let you have a whack at RotDorn if you don't like those magazines.

I need to stop buying mags for guns I do not own. Price of 50 mags would have bought me a nice ak.
