Just a heads up. I ordered 10 of the steel ones AIM is selling about a week ago. Received them yesterday. They are used, ie. they have serial # stampings of the mags, other than that they look NEW. They have been refinished and they come with a light coat of oil, not that damned cosmoline glue/wax crap the Soviet block seems so fond of. Very nice quality and excellent finish - much nicer than the CDNN mags 'used' mags I got 2 months ago (which were 95%+ condition).

The welds and bodies are MUCH nicer than an East german, Romanian, or Chinese mags that I have.

Just thought I'd pass the word

Thanks, I ordered some as well but haven't received them yet. How well do they compare to the Bulgarian 30rds?

I only have 2 bulgy mags (waffle pattern , plastic) so it may be that I have a few oddballs. When I have tried them in various AK's (mostly SAR's) they are hit and miss as far as locking up. That is they may or may not lock above the mag catch like they are supposed to. Granted this is probably a problem with the assembly of the rifle itself and not the mags, but I havent had this problem with any metal mags in the SAR's. Also the bulgy mags seem tighter/wider and sometimes 'bind' on the sides of the receiver during insertion - again this may be more the gun's fault than the mags'.
