I’m no expert but that looks like one of those Polish 10 round mags that held the blanks for the Gernade launcher on the Kbkg wz. 1960.

Looks like Romy to me. Notice that spine ends at bottom at a 45*. Also the rearmost rib cuts off before the flat side part of feedlip.

EDIT: Apparently Polish do this as well. Anything marked on the follower?

Nope. I haven't found any markings anywhere on the mag.

i mean on the follower on the sides/bottom, out of the body (my bad if this is what your talking about, communication error.)

There used to be a great page on ?glocktalk? i think that would have the answers. Unfortunately it got photofuckit like too many things.

Show the spot welds on the spine. A lot of magazines from Romania have less noticeable (shallow) spot welds, this is more common from what I've seen.

But I'm guessing Romanian.

Some of the guys newer to the game may not recall but during the AWB the biggest AKs going were Romanian SARs for 300-360 NIB. During that time there were a lot of Romanian 10 round magazines flying around, much more so than from other countries. A lot of people ditched these magazines in favor of real mags, so a majority of metal 10 rounders I have seen are infact Romy.

The finish on it smacks of Romanian as well

I don't think you can ID a 10 rounder based on spine angle because a lot of these metal 10 rounders were actually chopped down magazines. This was very common during the AWB as well.

Romanian 10 round mag (some held 5) that came with the sar1 rifles and other ban era romanian rifles. Nothing too special. Good range mag.

2nd gen European,

Clean welds up front. Modified Polak.

Pic of follower might seal it. EDIT- sorry, missed it first time...

It is Polak.

Hmmm... not a Polish floorplate ?

Ah yes the 5 round mag for 'hunting' that thing is an abomination to pair with an ak, IMO.
