A guy on gun boards found this while watching a video about the Syrian conflict. He gave me permission to post it here. Any ideas on origin?
Too much gap between the vertical and horizontal ribs for that to be the only difference. Looks to me, from the one picture, that the horizontal ribs would normally end where the Arabic is - looks like a gap was purposely made for the markings.I think its just some real heavy black goo written on the side.
Would love to see pics!!!!!oops I hit the reply button....anyway that odd 762 bakelite mag has no markings and blued parts. came out of Iraq just unknown what the heck it is. could be early Russian but more likely north Korean or arab or Romanian if you look at some odd aspects of its manufacture like snaggly overhanging floorplate design and rough deburr from mold. its real bakelite not Khyber fake stuff. that mag and a couple others might never id. does anyone know what the top of this mag looks like that's in the sand in pic? maybe theres a factory emblem or something on the other side.
