The stamped side Chicom mags work fine in a full auto AK.. The couple that I have were brought back from the former Yugoslavia..Q-gunner2 said:You need a liscense to import MG parts, period.
There are ways around this, but very uncommon. For instance, you could get the Chinese stamped steel mags that were intended for civilian export. These are not machinegun parts as they do not have a cutout in the right side of the mag for the autosear of a AK-47 automatic rifle. They work in semi auto variants only. The ATF may try to stop you but it is fairly easy to disprove them.
You could try importing for money. SAIGA rifle magazines are not machinegun parts either, so you could import high cap mags for them and then sell those for money to buy other mags.
If you can find them, SVD and SVT mags are expensive (originals sell for over $100 for the SVT and prices vary on the SVD). Thus, if you can find someone overseas selling them for, say, $10 each, then you can get rich quick and use the cash to buy other AK mags in country.
