    5,45 20 rd Experimental Bakelite. There is 100 m scratched on one side and 165 on the other. These signs indicate the weight is 165 grams and fired at 100 meters. This magazine was used for testing the experimental designs of arms in the 80s.

    IMG_6539.JPGIMG_6532.JPGIMG_6538.JPGIMG_6530.JPGIMG_6540.JPG out of a recent batch imported 3 of these I found. instead of steel reinforcements at top lips or missing steel all bakelite this variant has Chinese style micro mesh fiber reinforcing all around the back and sides under lips but only where needed. this was news to me and my buddy pointed it out. only place ive seen the Chinese micro mesh used is in Chinese bakelite forarms and buttstocks on ak and sks jungle stocks maybe other Chinese items but never Russian that I can remember.

    year or 2 ago there was speculation as to why the soviets pulled the idea back and forth using steel reinforcements in feedlips. some steel lips actually induce jamming if used in worn out magwell guns so there were pros and cons. this variant may just be more to that evolutionary story.

    Yeah, nice and clean mags, huh?

    And the markings seem quite curious, too.

    How rare are these? I just ordered the last 4 they had the other day. I haven't got them yet but when I do I'll post detailed pictures of them. What markings do Norinco mags have?

I have some other experimental and rare Russia magazines in deep storage that I'll photograph and post when I get a chance to dig them out. I know I have a 7,62x39 Green Border Guard mag, 7,62x39 30rd and 40rd experimental's and early issue magazines, and different long tops variants.

    For magazines that we don't own, credit the photo if that info is available. If the info is not available, make sure to state so and indicate unknown ownership. That way we should have a decent reference for the magazines known to be in the states and what magazines are not. I'll start it off with a few that I already have photos for and add others as I dig them out unless others have posted the same magazine already.

    First up is my favorite mag that I own...a rare Tula 7,62x39 30rd АГ-4C dark brown experimental magazine.







    Izhevsk 7,62x39 30rd Aluminum Ribbed experimental magazine.







    Izhevsk 5,45x39 30rd Border Guard magazine.








    Izhevsk 7,62x30 30rd Side Stamp magazine. These mags I'll put in the hard to find category but they surface periodically. I have some that are brand new still in the grease and others that used but minimal wear.




    That dark brown Tula magazine is amazing! What a cool piece. :+1:
