Why pay a lot of money for a used military surplus magazine in a questionable condition when you can have a brand new, robust, well made, steel magazine. At the time of this review this magazine made by SGM Tactical is sold out on many websites and there are a number of reasons why. It’s just that good. This magazine follows the well proven standard design of traditional AK-47 magazines. The first thing I noticed about the magazine was just how shiny the paint/finish is. I personally like it because it looks nice, but some may not like that type of look. Bottom line if you need a cheap, but not cheaply made steel AK magazine you need to add this one to your collection.
