Will valmet mags work in the SAR 3? Curiou because I might have a line on several.
You have a Valmet? Market on Valmet mags is around $100. That can almost get you 5-6 Weigers for that scratch.Chinook said:Will valmet mags work in the SAR 3? Curiou because I might have a line on several.
FWIW, the bakelite 5.45x39mm mags modify easily -via a Robinson Arms replacement follower, or my choice, a little dremel work inside the mag body to raise the follower about 1/4", and, get the front of the follower horizonal.Bradley5050 said:Valmet 556 mags will not fit a SAR-3, Norinco 84s, or Bulgy SAM-5 without extensive grinding / modification. Different pattern...............My SAR-3 likes East German Weigers and the converted follower AK-74 Bakelite mags just fine and they are pretty cheap.
I disagree. My preferred choice for SAR3 mags are the Bulgarian Waffles and the Polish Beryl magazines. All it takes to get those running is filing down the center support a hair to allow the mags to insert. That way you don't have to worry about modifing each magazine to fit. Modify the rifle once and all waffles and beryls fit.Lollygagger said:
