Depending on their supply, these won't last long at this price. If I wasn't heavy on magazines, I'd be on these like an E. St. Louis whore on BBQ ribs.:tongue::eek:
BTW, thanks for the heads-up.~ss

12 years ago (here) Josiah Hershberger was selling them NIW for 3 bucks
each. I bought some and a bunch of AMD65 kits for a buck twenty five.
Times have definitely changed.

You have to buy a minimum of ten to make the shipping anywhere near reasonable - at least to NH. Twenty is better.

I bought a bunch of kits and mags from Josiah, too. Great guy to deal with.

So who made 20 round AK mags besides Hungary? I bought a bunch of 20 rounders back in the day, just what I preferred, but they have zero markings on them that I can see so I would not have a clue as to the country of manufacture.

S. Korea is also a player in 20 rounders, however the general consensus seems to be to stick with current "black" colored mags, rather then dark grey earlier factory runs. CDNN had them. Don't know if they still do.~ss

I'm thinking it's a good chance mine are Hungarian. At least i hope so.

These dudes may have a 20 in a few flavors, for the connoisseur. I know nothing about this company, as I've never done business with them. I would check to make sure the Asian 20 rd. is the new black paint.~ss

The black painted Asian 20 rounders have been all over the Missouri gun shows for less then $10. I bought one last year but haven't tried it. Brought it home and threw it on the pile and forgot about it. Guess I should take it out and see if it functions.

Don't forget the Magpul PMAG's. They come in 20 rds.

Just a FYI............

Just took an Asian (S. Korean)20rd. AK mag out back, and ran it in a MAK90. It worked perfectly! Did a few quick single shots and then a mag dump on the last half of the mag. No flaws whatsoever.

Guess I'll start picking more up at gun shows, etc.

This is the black painted mag.

Great news, idsubgun. Those "black" mags are supposed to be robust. Seems I read the steel was a lower gauge, and seams where sealed better. :biggrin:
Thanks for the mag report.~ss

It's as well built as any steel AK mag I've ever seen. I really don't need anymore AK mags but may get some of these because of the quality.

Can't compare it to Hungarian mag because I don't own one, but the metal on the Asian mags are thick enough. I think they are a well made mag.
You guys in PA are paying about $4-$5 more for the Asian mags then we are around here. You can get them cheaper online.

I have a boatload of 30 round AKM/AK47 mags but if I was to buy 20 rd. mags, I'd also look at Magpul mags.

Are the Hungarian mags worth the extra $20? Do they have the bolt hold open feature?

Desert Fox Sales also has the Hungarians, and 7.95 flat rate shipping.

I got in on them when they were $14.99 for three, and all three are Man in the Moon stamped.

No BHO on them, they are just less common and cool.
I also like the Korean 20's, especially for the M92.

So, the Hungarian mags have a modified follower so the bolt stays open. Does the bolt slam closed when you remove the mag, or does it stay open?

Yugos have the special follower, Hungarians don't.
But yes, if you have a BHO mag, the bolt slams closed when you remove the mag.

I've been reading up on them (Hungarian and Yugo) since I last posted. I also see replacement followers that hold it open but these are made of plastic. Nothing against plastic but I'd like to do more research before buying something like that. I've also seen where people modify the original followers.

I like the concept of the bolt holding open after the last round, but I need to do more research before buying/modifying anything. And I'm not replacing all my mags with Yugo mags. That would get expensive!

Looking at the replacement plastic followers, they made a point of the follower's forward movement being stopped by the tabs inside the mag, on the sides, and not by the front being slammed into the body of the mag. Makes sense to me, but not sure if that's a real issue or not.
