Cyma aks74n

Very nice Afghanka style aeg, one of my favourite. What you need now is a bayonet, a Russian tourniquet holding a soviet era field dressing in the stock, a RP0-7 sight a GP-25, the buffer for the stock and a Russian Deer head sling. you could also mount a SVD cheek rest on it and some blue tape around double mags as some soviet troop in Afghanistan did. nice choice of rifle. What's also nice is you can easily convert it to the AKS74M

The CYMA 74 magazines are smooth sided meaning they don't have the side bolsters at the magwell end that some other brands come with.

Best thing to do when you game is ask other AK74 owners what mags they use and ask if you can try one, carefully. Never force a mag because the plastic lip will bend or break and this will likely piss off your buddy who may quickly change sides, light you up and claim he didn't hear you call your hits.

LCT 74 mags tend to be brittle in this area. CYMA Bulgarian type, the semi clear waffle type tend to jam by double stack bb's forcing the inner guide appart or in some cases the screw holes strip out.

Generally I would only buy new mags unless you can test them or trust the source.

CYMA, MAG Brand, Lancer, Aftermath, JG and Marui (og marui) should all fit and feed without issues. G&P, VFC, E&L mags all (i believe) have the side bolsters, they may or may not fit but they are the upper tier mags. out of those three G&P are popular, as are VFC.

Both are difficult to find in stock locally but worth the chase. Details are in the eyes of the beholder and the top prize imo goes to VFC.
