I'm looking for some 20 rounds mags for a Ak I purchased. I missed the area gun shop last weekend was out of town . Does anyone know of places on the net to get them ? Thanks

Sorry you're looking for 20rd mags? I missed that.

Not sure I can help, all the places I was thinking of only sell 30+

I just spoke to the owner and he is about to list the 20 round AK mags along with a large amount of new items.

Cheaper Than Dirt has outrageous shipping. Try Sportsmans Guide (http://www.sportsmansguide.com/cb/cb.asp?a=233125)

Sportsmans Guide has some annoying policies.
Buy too much and they eject you from their Buyers Club and won't refund the membership cost!
Of course this was before they were bought out by that French mail order chain so maybe that policy is no longer in effect?

Wise Lite Arms,

Thanks for the link; I just ordered a couple of the 20-rounders myself. They're a nice size for all-around use, and don't get in the way when shooting from a bench.

Thanks everyone that helps a lot since all I could find is a couple for 30 dollars a piece

I too prefer the 20 round AK and AR15 magazines. The firearms handle better, especially when shooting prone or off a rest.

Try the www.ar15.com equipment exchange. I picked up some Yugo BHO mags there.

Thats a good price, but they make no mention of shipping prices.

Also, they lack the ability to order online. Thats a deal breaker... I'm very suspicious of any web-based business that cant maintain a decent website. Its neither difficult nor expensive.

cdnn flat rate is ~$10...

try copes distributing, flat fee of $10... even if you order a pallet o stuff... well maybe not a pallet but pretty close...

www.apexgunparts.com has them for $12 each. Shipping is reasonable.

Classic Arms is great to work with

I know....it seems crazy to actually have to talk to a person to order...but there you go

I always see that comment about 20 rd mags and bench resting or prone....

So I gotta ask....can someone measure the difference??

Cause I will admit I do not shoot my AK's from a rest..can't imagine why I would

But I have ZERO issues going regular prone (rollover prone is a NO-Brainer)

Here, $17.00 each or buy 5 or more for $15.00 each. These are great mags, I've bought several of them.

Be careful about buying the 20 rounders from Sportsmansguide. I have heard very poor reviews about these mags. They are USA made and not Hungarian.

Keep in mind you may need to purchase a US made mag to keep your parts count!

Bullseyes76 - If you want to, you can take a trip to another state (VA for example) and buy 30 rounders to your heart's content, then bring them back with you. Maryland law doesn't forbid owning 30 round mags, it just prohibits the purchase or sale of them in-state. If you buy out-of-state, and bring them back, you're good to go.

NOTE - You will be looking at legal troubles if at any time you give away, sell, trade, or offer to give away, sell or trade any of those mags to anyone, MD resident or not. But, as long as you keep them for yourself you're good to go. (to be safe, I'd make sure that you were the only one who used them as well, I.E. at the range, if someone wants to shoot your AK, let 'em rip with a 20 rounder.)

As always, be sure to keep your reciepts and whatnot in case anyone asks.

I just measured, and my Hungarian 20's are 2 inches shorter than my Romanian 30's.

Shooting from a bench is helpful for sighting in optics (I run a Kobra on my SAR-1), or just for seeing what the rifle can do, since the most convenient range in my area isn't very prone-friendly. I wish it were...

The 20's are actually pretty close in length to 5.56x45 30-rounders, AFAIK.

5-Pk. AK-47 20-rd. Mags $49.97
That's 9.99 a peice or 8.99 with club membership.
Sportsmans Guide wins.

I'd be willing to bet that once you figure in shipping, Sportsman's guide doesn't win anymore.

Unless it is free, every single on-line store I have used has been in the $10 range for shipping. Where are you buying from?

kingpin008
September 20, 2007, 11:49 PM
Nowhere. I just know that a lot of people have been noticing the shipping from places like Sportsman's Guide and Cheaperthandirt.com have been getting obscene lately. The prices might be decent, but after they figure in shipping costs it seems more and more people aren't buying what they're selling.

I bought two 30rd mags (don't know origin) for 15 bucks/ea. at a gunshow in July :) No shipping charges, obviously ;)

That's great, but we can't buy 30 round mags in Maryland.

I was a member of "Sportsmans Guide" buyers club. I made several orders and then waited a bit and placed a large order for multiple copies of many items. This made the shipping pretty reasonable (shipping rate was based on dollars spent). They called me with an extensive list of questions, mainly asking why I was buying so much. When I said that I did set up at gun shows that is when my "Buyers Club" membership was terminated, and my order was canceled. I tried to get my membership fee refunded, but they refused. Since that time I have seen the same tale repeated by other folks on other forums. It has also happened to other folks I know.
Now their catalogs go straight into my trash can!
Plenty of other companies are happy to receive large orders from me!
