Early A5 ok

The early Promag AK-A5 worked pretty well, I didn't have a problem. Then in a genius move they changed the mag but not the p/n. The good ones have a full radius on the top of each feed lip. The later ones have that milled off flat for some reason. I think they worked sorta but you needed to make the slot in the back of the mag deeper so the bolt lug would clear. I haven't tried anything else other than the stock steel ones. I welded up some Norinco ones that had been cut for a Poly and they worked ok again in the 84. They were cheap so it was ridiculous but worth it.
