I bought some NOS Russian AK mags and as always I took them apart to clean and inspect. I found this thick wire loop attached to the floorplate which limits the number of rounds in the mag. It looks factory, but why would the Russkies make a mag with a blocking device?

For export purposes most likely.

Did you buy that mag from AIM?

I had these in some 45 round mags. Easy to remove.

I actually purchased these from a guy on Gunbroker. Appreciate the input, they are very effective round inhibitors but I took them all off.

All AK magazines I've got from AIM lately have those in them. They are easy to remove.
