    Tapco will replace your worn out magazines for free. Lifetime warranty on them.

    I will be interested in these PMAGS if/when they ever hit the market. They still can't fill all the AR magazine backorders, so I would plan to wait several months before you can even find the AK magazines.

    Didn't know Tapco did that. I've got a stack of them that need replacing, then.

    Tapco has pretty good CS in general.

    Didn't know it myself until a month ago. I had thrown away some wore out ones before I found out. Doh!

    Figured I would relay the info.

    Well it's appreciated. I know Tapco has good CS, just didn't know about the mags.

    I want one, or 10 of these AK Pmags.

    I hope they also make them with the windows.

    That would be sweet with the windows. Looking forward to these. Actually, it was the acceptence of pmags (7.62) that got me interested in the M&P10, and I'm not really an AR guy. But to have a quality company constantly devoted to spitting out great mags is definately a plus.

    Until my steel mags quit working :)rolleyes:), I've no reason to get excited unless these are uber cheap AND reliable.

    Magpul makes a helluva AR mag; but, ill wait for someone else to be the test bed.

    Curious how much the pmag improved acceptance of the AR15 as a reliable rifle?

    Not sure how well the pmag for AKs will catch on as they are already very reliable. But amongst the cool kids, perhaps the pmag will still be the cool thing to have on the AK, then all the furniture.

    Nothing against magpul. I like most of their stuff a lot. Just not sure they will have the same success w the AK crowd as they did with the AR crowd. Oh, they also won't have the military boots on the ground guys amping up their product either.

    Well it will I'm sure help make rifles be 922r compliant. After all aren't pmags made in America? If they are also reliable this will be an even bigger added bonus.

    Go to your local gun store and pick up a couple steel-lined mags for your AK. If you can do it, I'll buy you the first PMAG I see.

    Sure wish P-Mag would make magazines for the Mini-14 at a reasonable rate like the AR-15.:(

    Does it have to be a gun store?
    If not, K-VAR has Bulgarian Circle 10 mags in 7.62x39 in stock right now.
  15. Inebriated

    Inebriated Well-Known Member

    Yes, local.

    You can always pretty much guarantee that you'll find Cicle-10 mags somewhere online. But the thing that Magpul would do is make them more available. Constant supply, and I'd bet a lower price than Circle-10.

    EDIT - when did C10's go up to $45?
  16. SabbathWolf

    SabbathWolf member

    The Circle 10 waffles have always been expensive.
    But I'll continue to buy them anyways because I think they are the best synthetic mags so far.
    If Magpul reinforces their mags with steel like Circle 10's, and the price is lower too, then I may convert.
    Only time will tell I guess.

    Well just a couple months ago I bought 2 from Midway at $30 each, I think. Anyway, they said they were going to do all polymer, and a steel-lined Bulgarian-style. So if the steel-lined can come in under $30, they'll probably get everyone but the "all original" guys to convert as well.

    A non story if there ever was one, much as I respect Magpul as a company. Surplus steel mags will always be better than some plastic wonder mags. I doubt the price and quality will make them more attractive than good steels or basic tapco mags.

    Someone mentioned an MOE handguard for the AK. That would be a worthwhile item in my estimation.
  19. Inebriated

    Inebriated Well-Known Member

    I'm guessing you've not used quality steel-lined polymer mags.

    I just ordered 2 circle 10 mags.

    I will also wait for the steel reinforced Pmags. I hope they will be cheaper than the circle 10 mags.
