I know there is a mag forum, but responseis slow or not at all. Any way, I may have the opportunity to do a little international trading (on a small scale and all legal!) and was wondering what kind of Russian mags are hard to get so I can request them and add them to my collection. I am thinking some Bakelites with Arsenal stamps; 45 round RPK bakelites(such a creature?); and any other suggestions you guys may have. I am avoiding drums due to shipping costs. Thanks for any help!

Like these Mags The plum mags with waffles or ribs are very rare. Any 45 rounders for the 74's Any think Bakelite with Russian markings are good. The drums are not that heavy and the 100 rounders are fetching alot of cash now too.

45 round 5.45 plum/black MLOT



45 round 5.45 tula bakelite



These are just a few of the mags you should be on the look out for.

I will keep the 5.45 stuff in mind. i am trying to build up my 7.62 collection. I only have one AK as of right now, but I absolutely love it! More rifles will be in the future once I get rid of the wife.

I'm talking about divorce you deviants.

I'll post pics of rare 7.62 mags tomorrow. Too tired right now....PS .. You should keep the wife as long as she works and makes good money - Just all the more toys you can buy.

Travis-I anxiously await the pics! As far as the wife, no toys or amount of money would make me stay-I'm at that point!!!

Also, How rare and valuable are the aluminums? Just curious.

Those must be late AKMs because the gas block isn't typical AKM style...correct?

Very nice picture, wish I could see MORE like that!

Screw all these mags get some bizon mags and sell one to me RPK mags are always nice, i love em myself, the black ribbed one Travis showed you is a must buy, 40 rd bakelite early rpk mags would be a gem. Anything russian brings a premium magazine wise, whoever is ur connection tell them to get one of each of whatever they can find.

Alrighty, here ya go. I also included a Chinese Norinco 66 mag as well. These have been a PIA to find these days. I think Johno hoarded all of them - Dirty Dog!

Oh yea, I'm not a very good Photgrapher! I wish someone would give us some tips!

The Russians are here then their not. I think Jugrunner has hoarded most of these that are in the US into his collection


Do you need pics of Russian Slab Sides?


Pair of Tulas * Russian (Personal Favorite)




Ishy * Russian - I guess like these too




Norico

Wow! thanks alot guys!! Does anybody have one of the aluminums? I am thinking of having him try to get me one of these as well.

It all depends on where they are from.

"Downrange" somewhere, I would only look for the super rare ones like 30rd plum ribbed 7.62 or RPK 40rd 7.62 bakelite. Unless he found some stash, they are generally going to be beat to crap and not worth the bother.

A former Soviet republic, then any. Just remember that in many, AK mags are illegal to even possess, so shipping them out is difficult, if not impossible.

These are the ones I am going to have him search for-slabsides; aluminum; 30 and 40 round bakelites, and the 45 round plum ribbed. What do you think?

Also, what is the approximate going rate for a slabsides here now?
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 1:33:06 PM EDT
Make sure you take into account Stottmans warnings. ..

Generally a very nice Slab Side No rust dents etc 50 - 60 ..

a couple blemishes - 45-50
slabs with rust or refinsihed slabs 30 -35 tops.
