I'd buy one.
I'd buy many!
I'd buy one or many, but only at a lower price.
I think there is a market for these mags. Just like there was a market for the US Bakelite furniture that came out of Atlantic firearm years ago...even though it was horrible. I can see the mags having a 922 compliant draw to them. Also if done in other colors would be a big advantage. Nobody wants to buy US mags that look exactly like russian bakes for the same price. Poly waffles would be good too.
Keep in mind that euro steel mags are still super cheap.

I would like to see some 20 rounders if this does take off.
"odio vitae semper dissolubilis"
"Ludo mentis sciem"
"Senecta aetas viresque, atque perfidium expugnat"
"sic semper purgamentus Yugo kalashnikov! Tempus orbem ad excoquam eorum et dimittetur eis!"
Bakelite furniture would be great if it resembles factory shape and contours.
How about us 5.45 guys?
I'd be interested in one or two, especially if there are some interesting colors.
Bakelite waffle. Steel feed lips, steel reinforced catch. Also steel floorplate.
Now if only we can make 74 brakes for ar again.
I would if you had like an OD green color.
If your product is for gun collectors, I would expect they would want originals.
It looks like for $30 more than your expected price of $40 you can buy a real one:
Also, I think you will find, like most Americans trying to make reproduction AK magazines that it is difficult to make mags as tough and reliable as the milsurp ones (with all the metal inserts and so on, that most manufacturer's can't or won't replicate decently).
I'm not sure how big your market would be for a reproduction when the real item is still readily obtainable for collectors.
I'm not into Bakelite because Bakelite. Real, imported military magazines are still available. A knock off/new American made Bakelite mags would have no more interest for me than an orange tapco mag.
Same way an American made AK interests me not.
