When did the ROK field AK's? I wonder what they really are?
HX8M-133197 is their stock number.

I was just going to ask this, but you beat me to it!

They look nice in the catalog and the price isn't too bad, especially for the buyer's club members. I was just scratching my head about South Korea, though. :neutral:

I'm pretty sure there was a thread about this awhile ago....Can't remember though....I had thought that these were not S.Korean from the thread.

There's probably about three threads on this exact topic if you do a search. Long story short, they are NOT South Korean/North Korean and are observed to be very poorly made as stated by folks who bought some. Quite likely some really cheaply made commercial magazines made for our market from overseas.

Also recently read of someone buying mags advertised as Hungarian, and receiving what looked like cheap USA mags. Absolutely not Hungarian.
