I read recently that Maks use one magazine for both calibers.

Standard capacity Mak mags will accept .380 or 9x18mm cartridges.

They both use the same mags.

Luckily, when I bought my Mak, I was able to buy a couple of spares from makarov.com, but the makarov magazines have not been easy to find in recent years... Not sure where would be the best place to find them. Maybe gunbroker or something like that...

They can often be found at the larger gunshows, at least around here. It takes some looking, but they are out there. Around here they are now running about $25 apiece.

These aren't originals, so not sure if they work well (or at all). Has anyone here had experience with them?

They don't have a very good reputation on the Makarov forum, though I don't have first hand experience with them.

I bought one and put 50 rounds through my Commercial Russian mak and it performed great during that range visit.

It fed fine and also locked the slide back every time.

Gun shows are still a good bet. I was at a TINY gun show today - maybe 40 tables? Maybe? I got two Mak mags - one East German and one Russian. $18 and $15 respectively.

I was at a gun show a couple years ago and dropped by the magazine guy's tables. I asked if he had Makarov magazines. He said "yes". I asked how many he had. He asked "How many do you want?" If you go to Dixie gun shows in NC you probably know the guy I'm talking about.
