Default Good sources for standard AK mags?

I've been out of the AK game for a few years and want to pick up a WASR when the opportunity presents itself, just to ease back in.

What are the good deals on "standard" steel combloc 30 rounders these days? I remember picking them up for $7 to $10 each before... What's a fair price these days?

anywhere from $10-$15 on the low end. up to $20-$30 for nicer "mint" ones

arms of America has FEG hungarian's for $14.99...


also polish 4 packs + mag pouch for $49.99

http://armsofamerica.com/polishmilit...ieslast-1.aspx


They have Romanian mags for $9.95 off and on, but they sell out fast.


also check out the new mfger Zastava Serbian BHO mags. I have a bunch of them and they are SOLID.... might need some filing of the back top lug to miss that cross rivet in the WASR (had to do it for some of mine), but good mags nonetheless...$8.99 each if you buy 5 (otherwise $9.99)

I'd keep an eye on the marketplace here. They can regularly be had for about $10 - $12 for used ones in decent shape.

I have seen the Croatian ones in a few places off and on, and frequent a few marketplaces watching for decent used ones. Back in the day I had some Bulgarian 30's that seemed very high quality, and some Romanian 30's that were functional albeit a little rougher and a little more rust prone.

Are the Romanian 30's showing up now about the same?

Not sure how far "back in the day" you are talking, but the price of AK 7.62 steels has been about the same for the last decade or so. $10ish for used, $15+ for very good to mint.

Other types (Bulgarian waffles, for example) have gone up quite a bit in that time frame.

Yeah, at one time I had a dozen Bulgarian waffle 5.56's.
Should have kept them - they'd have been worth 4 times what I paid for them in the early 2000's. Live and learn I guess...

I'd skip the croat ones and get the zastava ones I linked to at Apex. Same price and better built. The croats are a bit thinner metal and don't feel as solid (and seem to have had more issues than the Serbian ones too)


As for Romanian. When they come in stock they go for about $10. keep an eye out on the MP or Armsof America. I see them there about once a month

Good Thread. I do know how to search for deals, but like it when I don't have to be a "Hunter Gatherer" all of the time and have the links to good deals provided for me.
The deals look like good ones to me.
The thing about mags is - one can never have too many. I have a large number of mags for AK's, and in fact if I had 20 mags for each AK I have ever purchased over the past 25 years, then I would need an even 1,000 mags. As it is I purchase a wide range of mags, even for firearms I don't yet own. I will be purchasing more AK mags as I encounter deals. One can all ways establish stash points and re-supply points with a few extra mags, if so inclined.
I might add that the Marxist Socialist Control Freaks in our Federal Government and in certain Federal Agencies would like to control and ban not only rate of fire devices, ie Bump Stocks, special triggers, BCG, and a host of other things but highest among them are magazines. Best to acquire what one is able to over time, before the Marxists Stalinists gain the upper hand in all areas of Government again in years to come.
