    Are there metal Saiga 7.62x39mm mags ?

    I shot my saiga at the range for the first time, it was LOADS of fun, the gun got some power (can't imagine how useful full auto would be unless it's REAL CLOSE and personal) and I was easily getting headshots with the iron sights at 75yards using remington UMC (Wolf was only 1/2 as accurate so I used it for rapid fire)... but the only issue I got with the Saiga is that it uses PLASTIC magazines and the end of one particular 30 round aftermarket one BROKE OFF when I was trying to insert it... infact I never even noticed it until I had reloaded that same mag... are there METAL saiga mags out there?

    I rather keep my saiga 100% original rather than mod it to use regular AK mags... if I had a metal magazine and a good red dot sight, I would be 100% happy.

    Could check over on the Saiga12 forum to see, although I honestly doubt it since most people just do the mods as the regular magazines are quite expensive for even halfway decent ones. So basically there just isn't all that much demand.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    Yes sir there are. I have one thirty rounder that is East European and it is steel..
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!
