AC unity mags

Long time no see, ladies and gents. 馃榿

Got an email from RTG earlier tonight advertising special "introductory" prices on Bosnian AC unity 30 & 40 rounders, with or without windows, from $10-$14 apiece.

I ordered 4 of the 40 round windowed mags. I figure for $14 apiece even if they're junk they'd make decent range mags. Like the 60 rounders, these have the steel reinforced lugs, and BHO follower.

Just thought I'd pop in and pass that along in case anyone else wanted to try some.

Just ordered 2 w/o windows from Classic Firearms for $9 each for testing.
Mine come today. I can update when I try them later today.
Classic has 30 rounders on sale for $7.50 til end of the month.
Hello, I was just inquiring as to everyones opinions and experiences with the AC Unity magazines (30 round, 40 round, and or 60 round quad stack magazines). Thanks in advance for any and all thoughts, opinions, or answers.

Robert RTG has the non-window 30-rounders for $5 apiece now when you buy 20. Tempting

I'd split a 20 pack w/someone.
I have one of each, 47/74, they fit in my Romanian rifles fine. Haven't been out to the range all Summer for various excuses, however.
So no function info at the moment.

If the K-USA branded 60 round I got from them was rebranded AC Unity, which I think but am not 100% positive it is, it worked fine the one use it got. Seemed a quality item but can't speak to long term.

For sure RWC LLC didn't manufacture them themselves, they are rebranders and assemblers.

EDIT, yes it is. Wayback Machine shows:

RTG Parts is now selling 40rd Unity mags for $99 for 20...- 7.62x39mm
Question is are Unity Mags worth buying? Are they reliable?
RTG is blowing them out as 30-40rd AK mags are now banned in Germany.
These are made in Bosnia.

The ones from rtg for $5 have regular followers in a mag body that is meant to have bho followers. Meaning the follower rides up all the way to to the top of the feedlips instead of stopping ....which means the bolt is going to tear the crap out of the follower on dry racks or the last test rack after a mag is emptied

I received an e-mail offer from "Lee's Mags" concerning AC Unity 7.62x39 30-round magazines on sale for $6.00 each. I believe these may be of Croatian manufacture, but even if all they are are range magazines, at that price they can't be beat. (I gather that the owner of Lee's Mags is retiring and is clearing out his stock.) I ordered 4 of the mags.

Anyway, the box of mags came the other day, and the box actually contained 6 mags! It appears that someone put the 4 mags that I ordered in the box, and since there was room decided to throw 2 more mags in! Can't beat that!

Range mags should be reliable too. Despite the price point, I will no longer buy AC Unity mags. I really liked the design, look and snug fit of their MP5 30/40 rounders with window, but too many FTFs. Unfortunate.

The six that I received have regular non-BHO followers, and they don't ride up in the feed lips any higher than the followers in my steel milsurp mags.

So are they reliable in AKs?

Probably be a while before I get to the range, as I'm going to save my ammo stash for sighting-in purposes for when I receive the new-to-me AK I'm soon to take in trade. Plus with the holidays, and then I'm getting cataract surgery done in both eyes in Junuary - so it might be spring until I get to the range.
Actually the metal is Zinc Alloy. The bolt stop lug is weak and not as good a design as the Zastava mags. The AR mags they are ok overall but the followers and spring rates are just ok. In the clear mags fully loaded if you remove a round in many instances the mag will dump two rounds. Not the greatest event. If you don鈥檛 need or want the BHO then the comb locks are fine. The AR need some minor design changes.
As a "limited" follow-up - I haven't been to the range yet - but I do have the AK that I was trading for as referred to in my post above. It's a Century rifle built using Zastava parts, but was not assembled by Century but instead by DCI Industries in Saint Paul, MN. This was a company formed by Dan Coonan, who subcontracted to Century, and who's goal was to build "high quality" AKs. What I was told is that DCI simply used Century-imported parts kits, assembled the rifles on NoDak U.S. made 1.5mm receivers, and marketed them through Century's distributor channels.

Anyway, none of the AC Unity mags would fit properly in this rifle, nor in my old MAK 90. They would lock in OK, but were nearly impossible to remove. However I was able to rectify the fit by simply filing a little off of the bottom surface of the rear locking lug on each mag.

Also I can verify what PAD said in his post immediately above. The metal reinforcements are not steel, as they do not respond to a magnet. Zinc alloy is probably as good a guess as any, as they do not look like aluminum.

To the above: DCI made the receivers only. They also made the same receivers for both NoDak Spud and Century and another private brand. Your Yugo was assembled in Vermont by Century Arms. Dan made the receivers only. Hope this helps. Spacially, the ACI Unity mags go right into the NoDak receivers without any fitment issues. Yours may be a stamping issue as they tightened them from some early production runs. Either way they are still top of the line. The resale century receivers are stamped on the bottom, the manufactured rifles Emma鈥檚 were stamped on the receivers side.
Thanks. My receiver is stamped on the side. First I've heard, however, that My M70AB2 was assembled by Century. And I thought the NoDak connection was the reverse - I thought that NoDak Spud manufactured the receiver that DCI used, but DCI (Dan Coonan) actually assembled the rifle, only using Century as the importer of the parts and as the marketing channel.

I have examined all of the rivet tails that I could see, and was a little bit disappointed that the one trunion rivet that I could see that is even with the rear of the barrel, appeared to show the characteristic Century fault of being expanded by using the barrel chamber as the anvil.
Did the mag drop test on these mags the other day. If the mag is full and you hold it a above shoulder height, and drop it on the feed lips, they shatter. I think on the second try, the feed lips broke apart and all the rounds came out. They are not worth any money.
