    Will Galil steel or plastic mags work in a M-71 Valmet?

    They will lock into the rifle but they are not safe to use.

    They do not position the round to feed at the correct angle and bullet set-back is very common, and it can lead to a very serious "kaboom".

    Unfotunately, you're going to have to pony up for real Valmet magazines, or you can convert Arsenal Bulgaria Double Circle 10 "waffle" mags to work.
