Going through my AK mags I found

A few Chinese mags. A 10 rd, a 40rd, and a few 30rd. Do these have any collector value?

Depending on what style they are.

Are they slabsides or flatbacks?

Are they Polyoxybenzylmethylenglycolanhydride?

I did not know Chinese mags were ever made of Polyoxybenzylmethylenglycolanhydride.


No, they are not Polyoxybenzylmethylenglycolanhydride. I will look up images of slabside mags and see what they look like. Thanks for the replies.

Those are ones that were made for the children's toy guns. My kids had several "authentic" looking AKs made in China made of the same poison.

Where can I get these very deadly Chinese magazines for my AK? They will many increase the great deadliness of my AK and do they hold many clips? Do they fit 9mm and 10mm banana high super capacity ammo?

What you want to do is post pics of them ..The China com made a crap ton of style and markings

If they are unmarked normal no spine mags then 5 are 10-15 at most 30s 25-30 40 70-90

Now if they are marked in some way made in china , polytech etc etc that can raise it up now depedning on how they were marked ..Also if for the 30 or 40 if they chromed follwer and three witness holes they are more money

Do note that some Typ81 mags look like AK mags but are not they go for a bit of money for Collectors even though they can be used in a AK easily


Realy the best is to post pics of the mags floor plats back and follwer and go from that

Look close for markings like factory 66 on the spine

Pics on the way, I did not want to post the pics if there was no interest or anything special about the mags. Thank you all.

I don't know about collector value, but I prefer using them for actual shooting because of the flat back. And they are "correct" for my MAK.

2 of the 30rd mags do not have a flat back, I was assuming they were Chinese due to the design of the ridges at the bottom towards the bottom plate.
Some are not marked "China" on the bottom.

Late to this but not all china mags are flatback ..There are sino-sovits /trainsational and others that are china/ n korean but not flatback ..Esp the earlier models ...

I think maybe only the Crotian new mags used the same stamping at the bottom not sure ..

Floorplates to me are just a clue as I have seen weird things with china floorplates and followers

What? Are you trolling me? Your other post on this thread was also questionable.

No sir. 1st post, was just asking if they were Bakelites. 2nd one, was just wondering why you did not let us know when / where, they were put up for auction. Sorry.
