    Heard that ak47 and mini 30 mags were interchangable. Doesn't seem right to me but I have some mini 30 mags and am interested in buying an ak. Thanks for the info in advance!

    Not at all.

    The only thing interchangeable between the two is the ammunition.

    They are not interchangeable in any way.

    Yes indeed and the AK mag is bigger at the feed end so there is no way to make an adapter for it to work in the Mini-30.

    Compare the Pro-Mag AK mag to the Pro-Mag Mini-30 mag and you'll see how much material they had to remove to make it fit the Mini.

    There are no reliable high capacity mags for the Mini-30. My Pro-Mags mostly work, but I had to file on them to get them to fit the gun when loaded (they swell a bit from the pressure).

    I tried one of the metal high capacity mags but it ws about 0.065" shorter front-to-back than the factory mag and while it seemed to feed if I held it in, it'd either fall out or drop down enough to close on an empty chamber if I tried to use it normally.
