    Are triangle hole mags Iraqi?

    I have a couple of mags I acquired a year or two ago that have triangle witness holes. I originally thought they were Yugo mags due to being blued, thicker, and BHO. Compared them and they have a few different machine lines than others and was also told that Iraqi mags are Yugo pattern and have the triangle witness holes. This true?
    MEOW

    The rumor is they are Yugo/Serbian contract mags for the Iraqi Army. Not manufactured in Iraq

    No. They showed up in large quantities when Yugo kits, and Balkan magazine lots were coming to the US.

    As many variations of rifles as Zastava did, they were bound to make magazine variations as well.

    Here is my observation.


    If someone is looking to buy them, they are Yugo.

    If someone is looking to sell them, they are Iraqi.

    Follow?
    Mr Nobody, MLK, StuG_1944 and 2 others like this.
    Want to buy:
    1966 East German AKM kit
    TYPE 1 kit
    North Korean kit
    Serbian M76 sniper vest (M-99 A3)


    If I was not on some government watch list, I'd be insulted.
