New Magpul mags for AK, yes, Avtomat Kalashnikova

Magpul AK magazines

And these words came from Magpul on some other internet site:

"Due to the interface of rifle and magazine in the Kalashnikov platforms, and the leverage that critical points must withstand, we knew we couldn’t leave well-enough alone with the AK MOE before we even started designing. Also currently in development, and arriving on the heels of the AK MOE, is the next release in the PMAG AK lineup, which will be a 7.62x39 magazine with a little more “Bulgarian” in it, featuring solid steel reinforcements at lockup points."

sounds good

A quality polymer AK mag, USA mag, will be lighter in a rig, add a 922r part, and be a great thing.

I'll be waiting for the steel-reinforced version. If that version can undercut surplus steel mags in price, then Magpul will have a real winner on its hands.
