    Who makes the best 20 rounders and where can I find them? I'd prefer to buy new or like new high quality magazines, no rusted paperweights with weak springs.

    Are there any Polish 20 rounders?

    The only 20 round AK mags that I know of are Hungarian AMD magazines.
    I think Tapco and AIM have them.

    The only 20 rounders that I'm aware of on the market at the moment are the Hungarians.

    I have no experience with them, but the Hungarians are known for making quality firearms.

    Just curious why you want to spend the extra money for the 20 rounders when you can get the same quality cheaper in a 30 rounder?

    Just because they're lighter when loaded and don't stick out so far.

    I saw the Hungarians on AIM and they kind of turned me off because they're advertised as 'very good' condition. I generally don't buy stuff like that.

    If you want new/like new I think you're stuck with the 30 rounders...

    Even in VG condition, the 20 round AK mags are build just as well as the 30 rounders. That is to say, like tanks; they'll outlive you.

    The two 20 rounders I recently got from AIM were very nice finish and quality, and better than several that I got from Tapco.
    The 20 rounders are an advantage in some situations, as they handle and balance better, fit in USGI magpouches and other pouches designed for M16 mags, and allow for a different ammunition type to be carried and recognized by feel, such as soft points in the 20 rd's, ball/hp in the 30's. Allows for versatility.

    Recently bought some of the Hungarian 20-rounders from AIM myself. I have no complaints at all about the quality / condition. Haven't used 'em yet, so I can't comment on function, but I have no reason to believe that'll be problem either.

    20's make prone shooting easier.

    Hungarian and Chinese are the only manufacturers I know of. I think they were originally made for the Bullpup (Chinese) models of the AK and the 30 rounders wouldn't fit.

    The Hungarians were made for their AMD ("Tanker") AK.

    Tapco, $5.99 ea.

    AMD=AK

    20rd-Tankers fit in any AK, any double-stack should fit in AMD

    Ive got 7 from Tapco and they look and work great. I like'em cause one box of ammo fills one mag with no loose rnds. Makes keeping track of how much ammo i use a little easier.
