    :D Will that work with my underfolder?

    Seriously, I doubt it works. When you want that many rounds, you go with a drum.

    hmmmm ooook......

    Adds new meaning to "half moon clip" :what:

    p.s. Yes I know its a mag and not a clip but "half moon mag" just doesn't sound right.

    I can't see how you'd get that thing in the magwell, what with the prerequisite rocking motion.

    Actually, that's a CA legal version. The mag is non-detachable. It's installed before they press the barrel in. You remove the dust cover and bolt carrier and load it through the top using SKS stripper clips. Takes 12 clips to fill it up. They make a special tool to help you load the last few clips worth in. I've got a picture around here somewhere.....

    Ah yes, here it is:

    :D

    Naah, that's almost certainly a photo-shop job. I don't think you could twist the mag far enough to the side when inserting it to clear the barrel. Until someone actually has such a thing and gives us a range report...with pics and videos preferably... I just don't believe it.

    Actually it's real, maybe not that picture. I have a book about the history of Ak's and it's called a type 7 or something like that

    I would be most obliged if you would find that reference and scan it and post it for us here. Or just quote it so we can figure out how it worked?

    Was there a twist to the body of the magazine so it clears the muzzle?

    What was the intended use? I would imagine they were to be used with the Kalashnikov used in a SAW role? (Or maybe they were for the RPK?) They must be exceedingly rare...and I would assume they don't work very reliably. Otherwise we'd see them every once in a while.

    I can confirm they are real. I saw one at a shop here in Oregon. All I can say is Barnum was right! ;)

    I've seen them here in Texas - being returned by their disappointed buyers. My limited Spanish wasn't good enough to follow the discussion about the magazine's faults but it was long, loud, expressive, and involved some rather suggestive hand motions.

    Apparently the AK platform is known locally as a "corne de cabra" or goat's horn, but this piece of hardware was compared to another body part... .

    I'm trying to get my head around the idea of a spring that will reliably push a follower 180 degrees. Not feeling it. why not just get one of the drum mags?

    Just put a really stout spring in it...so you think your AK is reliable...try pancaked (from the spring tension) 7.62x39. :D
