FINALLY! The main complaint I’ve had with Tapco’s AK-style magazines is that they’re ugly as sin. I understand why people want ridges on their magazine (grippiness and such) but I don’t envision myself ever being “downrange” or “in the sandbox” and “operationally operating” with my “operator grade magazines.” I just want something that works, and doesn’t make me want to gouge my eyes out. Thankfully, Tapco’s new slick sided magazine fills that role pretty damn well, giving it that “authentic” Soviet look. I’d say that I hope they start making actual bakelite magazines, but there are enough of those in the world left to satisfy demand probably until Judgement Day.
