Default Brown Tula Polymer magazine

1st I've searched and used advanced search without luck other than some general BS about it so if there is info already here I apologize. I have had a different 5.45 Tula mag in my safe for a while i snapped a pic today and was informed by a friend I have something different. It is a Dark brown Tula poly mag I bought in a 4 tula plum mag order from AKbuilder dont even know how long ago. Once it uploads to imgur I'll link. Any info is appreciated. From what I have gathered it was an earlier Tula magazine for the AKSU but that's about it.

Looks plum to me. I’ve seen them from dark plum to almost brown with a lot of fleck in them. Seems the Russians did what ever they felt like when it came to ingredients... “eh, close enough comrade factory worker!”

the pictures do make it look a more plum than brown I rub my mags with a wipe new cloth after I thorough cleaning and brings a shine to them I have 2 nice izzy ones but most are typical surplus.

Plum magazines https://imgur.com/gallery/JDuxFus
These are my current collection of plums. Slim compared to some peoples stacks of mags I got into the 74 a bit late so never bought mags looking back should've just bought the hell out of them rifle or no rifle lol

That’s a dark plum mag. If you had a brown Tula, you’d see a noticeable difference between them, especially outside in natural sunlight.

FYSA A brown/plum Tula was just sold and bought in the MP a week or so ago. Maybe you could get in touch with the buyer or seller for some comparison

Take the mag apart, and put a strong flashlight directly against the mag body, then look at the underside of the polymer by peaking through where the where the floorplate would be, even the blackest of plums are bright purple with the light, any hint of purple and Its just a odd plum.


I had a picture of a tula brown mag saved but lost it, you wouldn't second guess it was brown, it was brown brown, these look like plums to me.

There are more than two in the states. Not a ton but way more than two. I bought 5 straight from Russia a couple years ago.

I will do that. The photos don't show it as much as it does in hand but it looks brown to me compared to others I'll do the flashlight and get some more photos of it here in a bit.

Here is a much better picture of it next to one of my other tula plums I took it in direct sunlight no filters or tricky lighting just out in my yard. This magazine out of the 10 plums I have 5 Tula and 5 izzy its the only mag with this colorization to it even just got another tula plum from a good friend that's plum as all hell talk about on hell of a friend. Even if not a true brown it's certainly different than the others I have. Thank you to all who'd replied and shed some light on it much appreciated.
