    Great price!!! Thanks for the heads up.

    Funny that they get the name wrong in the title, but correct in the product information section. The mag is from the STG-940 rifle system given the name for the city/ country they are made, WIEsa GERmany, Wieger.

    Wow, that is an excellent price! And I thought $24.00 a piece (dealer price), from Century was good. Thanks for the post Blue.

    Thank you for sharing this offer with me last week, AKBLUE!

    I placed my order this past Thursday, they shipped the same day, and I received the magazines on Monday. The GunMag Warehouse did a fantastic job shipping out my order as quickly as they did and offering these magazines at such an excellent price. I went ahead and placed a second order.

    What mods would need to be done to them to use them in an 5.56 AK-74 build?

    The magwell would have to be opened up. I have never tried to fit a Wieger to an AK74 pattern set up. Of course partly the need to mod the receiver and the Wieger mags were $35-$45. Easier to use the Bulgy 5.56 waffles at that price.
    The price is right on these but after the receiver is modified it gets a little more lottery type mod.

    Anyone know if these will work in the Polish "Archer" Beryl without modification?

    No the Wieger will not insert at all. Actually the Beryl magazine is the most universal 5.56 magazine.
    Though in general the 5.56 magazines are not interchangeable except in a few specific interchanges.
    The development of the 5.56 cartridge to the AK firearm was not controlled by the Russians/Soviets., as a result each country developed their own magazine and in some cases bolt geometry etc.

    Wasn't there a thread in here which covers the question of what mag(s) worked in which rifle(s)?

    Well., sort of., if you use the search feature it comes up readily..
    Though the fitment claims I think are suspect., IMHO.

    I got in on these, but they charged me $29 each, and within a few days dropped the price to $19. Still a deal compared to what going rates have been and limited availability.

    Thanks for the link. That's quite the deal. I ordered twelve.
