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.

ac unity mags any good
I am happy with mine. The way I determined that they were GTG is test fit them in all my AK rifles, then loaded them to capacity and shot them in all my AKs. They functioned perfectly. I did NOT throw them on the ground, smash them with a hammer, drive over them, put sand or mud in them, shoot them, bake them in an oven, do push ups on them while in the mag well, or any of the other absurd so call "Tests" that have become popular on the YT expert video.

I have 19 of them, 3 of which are 40rnd mags, and I am watching RTG for a Memorial Day sale and would buy more...

They are excellent mags. They have a zinc alloy so if you need to file the rear lug to fit into your rifle is really easy to do so. They fit nicely with zero wobble.

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.
Thanks.... That is something worth considering....

While you CAN get the AC Unity mags very cheap, they are fragile compared to other lightweight options, so really a waste of money. Spend $15-20 and get US PALM or even the Bulgarian ones with steel lips and have a mag that will truly last for any purpose.
the torture test of AK mags is the Tide Pod challenge of the AK collector community...LOL. 29 years in the US Army 2 combat tours in Iraq. Multiple deployments to Central and South America. Countless training excercises with live and blank ammo. NEVER dropped a magazine on the feed lips from chest height

Anybody remember about 10 years ago when the hover boards came out? They were originally around 1K, but then cheaper ones showed up at 3 to 4 hundred bucks. The interweb told us the cheap ones would catch your house on fire.
My son still rides his "Cheaper" one when he comes home from college from time to time. No house fires to date.
So AC Unity is the 鈥渃heap hover board鈥 of AK mag wurld?

If you mean that AC Unity mags work as advertised, but so called experts on the interwebs are trying to say they don't by fabricating absurd scenarios in which they fail? Then yes, yes you could say that. Especially if it makes you feel better.

Dropping a loaded mag on the feed lips is not an absurd scenario. I explained what I did. If you would like to buy the most fragile AK mags, please just do it.
AC Unity mags have been known to split the feed lips when loaded long term too.

simply put, there are better options for nearly the same price out there still. AC unity 7.62x39 are notoriously flimspy. I had some and got rid of them. The 5.56 and VZ.58 mags are actually not bad for range mags, especially with such limited options out there.
The $5 price for the Unity mags should be a clue to their quality....

$7.95 on RTG, tempting but $5 would be better...

now I see what you mean. If you buy 20. HMM maybe if I didn't have over 100 AK mags of various manufacturers I would get a 20 pack...
My WASR is somewhat picky.
I traded for 2 60s & 2 45s(?).
Only one 45 locked in w/o worry, kept it for testing, sold the others.
As far as US made poly mags, Palm and Tapco fit snug in that gun, but work well, Pmags will work in it, too. If I was going to do poly, I would stick w/Bulgy slab sides and waffles.
If I had to depend on fit, feeding, smooth changes, Eastern Euro steel for me, thanks.

Dropping a mag, is something that can happen, for sure. While I practice that sweeping out the old w/the new, I tend to practice retaining the mags in a pouch/pocket, jus' cuz I think one could wind up wanting them back later.

The AC Unities, as well as those $5 "Polish" out there, are made of a plastic that doesn't look like it would take too much bouncing off a hard surface, loaded or not. No doubt even worse when it's cold.

So, buy a couple dozen, if you wish.
Let us know what you come up with.
As far as heading into armed aggression, I'd stick w/steel.

I mainly have surplus metal mags, around 50 or so. I have had most of them for 20+ years stored in a plastic tub. I never bothered to check them, I just grabbed a few if I took an AK to shoot. And that was not often. Recently I added several different makes of polymer mags. AC Unity, K-USA, PSA, Xtech, Tapco, Zastava, MAGPUL, some type of Bulgarian polymer, and even some Korean fakelite mags.
My criteria for keeping them was if they fit all my AKs and if they functioned fully loaded. No torture test, just function tests.
A couple of weeks ago I loaded up every mag I had at the time and went to the range to test them all. I fired over 1700 rounds and identified a few mags that didnt work in one or all of my AKs. Those were metal mags BTW. I have since purchased additional mags of the ones that worked and have more than doubled my magazine collection.
I am not interested in trying to destroy any of them. Mainly because I know for a fact that given enough use or abuse, ANY mag can fail. I will use them until they no longer function, and then dispose of them.
At this point, it will have to be a very good deal for me to purchase additional magazines, I got carried away and bought too many already. With normal use, I am confident what I have will last as long as I need them, and my kids and maybe even grandkids too.

the 40 rounders should be passed on. while the 30 rounders "work", the 40 rounders are notorious for feeding issues because they use the same spring length as the 30 rounders and they were marginal strength at best on the 30 rounders
