I have a box of AKM bakelite style MAG mags. Decent mags, blued steel baseplates too. The color is way off IMO, should be more reddish then brown like they are. Not hard to fix though. Either way, IMO well worth the money.

Get a box. Or 3.

Cheers,
Alex

AK74 mags are bakelite/plastic not metal. Depending on which brand AK you have there will be fitting issues. STAR ak74 70rnd blacks were not very good fit in my ICS ak74, but they are allright in CA one.

I've heard that the STAR magazines do fit alright into the Cyma 031, I ordered that gun and it should be here within the next couple of days, I was even considering purchasing STAR ak47 magazines.

Will do, I ordered mine from shootsoft, the total came to around 350$ (40 dollar shipping fee).

Now I was debating wether to get a 5 pack MAG AK74 (100 round) or 10 pack STAR AK47 (30 round) and I think for appearance and overall use, the AK74 mags would be better, you won't need to worry about constant reloading, and as far as i'm aware, you still don't have to wind / listen to the rattle.

Out of curiosity, are you going for a total Soviet/Russian impression?

How did you break yours in? I had issues with mine. I think there is some relevance to Serg as well.

I have a Unicorn which is not a CYMA, but it does have CYMA internals and is a china cheapy. It loves star mid caps. Star also makes orange mid-caps. There is some side play but that is my mag well and not the mags.

G&P AK74 magazines have a plum version with rib, they're pretty cool imo. Still trying to decide what's best for me.
