Default Beryl Mags @ RTG

Price is meh at $35, but these don't seem to be falling from the sky.

Price isn't terrible, they are the earlier clear that are metal reinforced at the front. They'll develop little cracks around the reinforcement, but none of mine have broken yet

I'm glad to see someone is bringing in 5.56 AK mags. I have 9 of these for my Archer, should probably pick up a few more

Glad to see these coming in as well. Cheaper than what people are asking for circle 10's in the marketplace.

Keep in mind these were only briefly used by the Polish military, as they did not meet their expectations.

The black polymers came first ( made with the same technology as the polymer Tantal mags )

The clear ones came next, but did not live up to military expectations and weren't used very long.

The translucent green ones were then adopted and have been in service with Poland ever since.
