    Red Finished Romanian AK Mag

    Pick up this Romanian mag. Has an interesting reddish bronze finish on the inside and out. I do believe it's an older Romanian and finish is either original, old repaint (but I don't see any second layer of paint.)
    Anyone seen anything like it before? Is this a Hungarian or Bulgarian mag?

    It's commonly called a plum finish, and as I understand it, it's a defect caused by the hot bluing solution having an incorrect chemical mix or the wrong temperature in the tank.
