    Question Strange AK Mag's (Pic's)

    I know that these 30 round 7.62x39 AK mags are Russian, but I was wondering why the ribs on them are different than the usual steel AK mags?

    Anyone know the story behind these types of magazines? I would love to know more details about them.

    Thanks.

    Is it an aluminum body? I thought that the aluminum ones had the extra ribs to make them as strong as the standard steel magazines.

    You know what, I think you are exactly right.
    Now that you mention it, I remember reading something along those lines about the old communist countries wanting to use aluminum to make mags lighter in weight and to save money. I guess it didn't catch on.

    Good call!
