Maybe these will help. I made these a few years ago after seeing somebody else's chart like this and then loosing it. I need to re-do them because I picked up a Romy & Yugo mag since then.









The Russian mags typically have the "arrow in triangle" stamp on the lower back of the mag or along the spine. Typically, but not always. Rarely it is on the side of the mag.

They also tend to have several other stamps along the spine (mostly numbers sometimes in ovals).

Also, the "scallops" on the tops of the feed lips are another indication of a Russian mag.
