Default Bulgarian Steel Mags $13.99

Hey guys while doing some deal searching I saw gunmagwarehouse is selling steel bulgys for 13.99. Just thought I’d post it to this community first. Also looks like code garandthumb knocks another 5% off.

Description isn’t great but yeah I think they’re new. I’ve been eyeing the Arms of America romy mags but these seemed like a better deal to me. Maybe someone else who has ordered these in the past can chime in.

I assumed they were metal followers greasemonkoid. You’d have to call and ask to be sure.

Bulgarian Metal Mags are good to go. New Euro-Production. Have owned and keep a few of them at several remote undisclosed locations. (Cache and re-supply points) Highly recommend them.
Will in fact be ordering some from one of the two sites mentioned.

Code “garandthumb” saves you 5%

Edit: just saw it in OP. Saves you .70/mag

So dropping them and cracking that floorplate is a potential concern, but at least it's metal lugs

Hmm. I have some damaged mags with good springs, floor plates and followers. I wonder if it would be worth it to trade out the follower and floor plate?

This. The poly internals are of no concern. These are every bit as good as surplus IMO.

Meh, the video reviewer is price stupid. For under $20 you can still get VG to Ex condition Yugo, Polish, Hungarian and Romanians that are ALL steel. Not as plentiful as before but they are still out there. Those new Bulgarians would only be worth it around $12 IMHO.

How do these compare to the all-metal new Croatian Yugo copies with BHO? Those things are going for under 10 bucks last I've seen...I bought 5 of them before I knew they were new production, but they've functioned fine...

Croats fit my AKMs fine without mods. Its hit and miss. Worse case scenario nothing a file and 10 minutes can't fix to the Croats. Can't speak on the Bulgarians because I would buy the Croats before I would buy them.

Yeah they were a bit funky at first...They locked up TIGHT in my M92s like perfectly...Would NOT lock up in the OPAP for sheeeit...I filed the locking lug a tad and they finally locked...Hit them with some Perma Blue quick and they've worked fine as range mags ever since...

Good catch, I totally missed that part 1st time I watched it.

So I'll delete that other post.

Bumping this thread as they have them back in stock again and still 13.99, and the code "garandthumb" still works for 5% off. 150 to my door for 10 of 'em. AK mags getting pricey these days, 15 a piece for new mags is not bad IMO.

I will second this. I have 10 of them myself.

They all function and lock up great in my WASR.

It beats the low grade surplus full of pits and rust.

I bought 30 or 40 of these when AIM Surplus had them for 7.99 or 8.99 back in the day around 2010 or 2011. They are solid magazines. Regardless of the poly follower and floorplate I would trust these for anything. They've never skipped a beat or been the cause of a failure. Might grab some more

I swear by these things personally and I'd argue these things have one upside compared to surplus mags. You will never have to worry about a polymer follower rusting into place if maintenance ever becomes an issue for some reason.

Yea, the polymer follower doesn't bother me one bit.

As one puts one's order in for Mags, imagine each one representing a million Bolshevik Marxist Liberal Tears. Or imagine any of the Demokrat Presidential Candidates foaming at the mouth over each AK Magazine. Especially Democrats Eric Swalwell, Kamela Harris, etc..
Of just as great a pleasure is the knowledge that none of them nor their minions will ever get their hands on any of them, as I will never be turning any of mine in, no matter the turn of fortune, and unto the ends of the world.

Great Mags, and a Great Buy.

Just got my 10 in and i'm pretty happy with them, wish they were a little cheaper of course, but great looking mags and the poly follower seems robust enough, not a bad deal for brand new mags.

So is $13.99 a good price on these?
I'd much rather have used and at used prices. Dented and jammed up perhaps.

Best deal on AK mags imo. Good surplus is closing in on 20 a mag now. New production steel with new springs for $14? Count me in.

Those are drying up too, Apex is out, I got 10 of their 8.95 mags a week ago or so and I guess that was the last as they are out of stock. SGammo had some yugo's that weren't bad but they're out. I think AOA is the only one left with the junker mags, and I hear those mags are just unuseable mostly. The ones I got from Apex were actually in good shape with only a few dings and almost no rust, wish I had gotten a few more.

wow, I'm so glad I bought stupid amounts last year when the sales were plentiful. My wife thought I was nuts from going from 20 AK mags to 197 ak mags in the span of 8 months, but my drunk ordering paid off lol
