I'd say Pro-Mag is to magazines as Yugo is to automobiles, but that would be unfair to Yugo.

I own 4 promags for my Saiga and all work just fine. My LGS sells them for like $10-$15 I wouldn't pay more than that for one. If you hunting for mags, SG Ammo has actual PMags and com block steel mags for awsome prices.

I've had Promags for AR, Mini-14 and Remington 597, as well as several pistols. Not the best out there, but they worked fine for me.

Yes. Pro-mags are alright, but Magpul brand P-mags are generally awesome. They're totally gnar.

Surplus mags from Europe run like champs in AKs. They are the gold standard.
That would seem to come under the heading of "OOPS"

I always though PMAG was short hand for 'plastic magazine' in general. It's actually a trademark? Learn sumthin' every day.

Just to make it absolutely clear, ProMag is a manufacturer that makes magazines for a great deal of firearms, but generally has a poor reputation. Pmags are Magpul's line of polymer magazines. Magpul has a much more limited selection of models that they make magazines for, but (with a couple of exceptions involving older generations of 20rd AR15 magazines) are very highly regarded.

The AK pmag's are well-respected. The only issue they have is that they don't have metal reinforcements along the feed lips and the rear tab, which are both high-wear areas for AK's. Last I heard, Magpul is working on releasing a new version with metal reinforcements.
