    I shot my MAK-90 yesterday, and had a lot of fun. I have 4 30 rnd magazines, and a 5 round magazine.

    One of the 30 rnd magazines refuses to fully insert into the magazine well. When it ought to click in, it just kind of bounces, and refuses to go in. It LOOKS just like the other magazines. Does anyone know what I'm talking about, and how to fix the magazine?

    Thanks!

    Sounds like perhaps the locking tab on the back of the magazine is a shade too long? I had a similar problem with one AK mag once upon a time -- a very little filing on the tab corrected the problem if I recall correctly.

    I would go and try as many different makes of mags as possible. If all the others work, then file tab on the one out-of-spac mag down. If several types of mags are tight, take a file to the receiver at the back end of the mag well.
