    AK 10 round mags

    I purchased these 10 round AK mags at the recent Malvern Militaria fair because one doesn't often see them for sale in the UKicon and these seemed reasonably priced. I have seen various views expressed about these 10 round AK mags over the years which may or may not be correct, however, I wondered what knowledge or views people here have about them and, in particular, these 2 examples.

    I think you'll find they're for the reduced cartridge areas...like some of the US states that have capacity reductions in place.

    Opinion. Easier to use in private hands than the longer ones. Especially if used for hunting. Looks much less "threatening".

    We originally had some ten rounders come into Canadaicon with the others, matter of choice. Those were blocked to five though. I personally have several standard length M14 mags but use a cut down five for range. It sits on sandbags better. I know people use strange things for hunting, here it's Chinese M14s and the odd M1 rifle... Other counties maybe AK.

    Now for those that don't understand what I said about some states in the USAicon having different capacities...here...some examples. That's why these are around, not military preference.

    California18 All Firearms 10 rounds
    Colorado20 All Firearms 15 rounds
    Connecticut21 All Firearms 10 rounds
    D.C.22 All Firearms 10 rounds
    Hawaii23 Handguns Only 10 rounds
    Maryland24 All Firearms 10 rounds
    Massachusetts25 All Firearms 10 rounds
    New Jersey26 All Firearms 10 rounds (Certain firearms with magazines capable of holding 11-15 rounds may be registered until July 13, 2019)
    New York27 All Firearms 10 rounds
    Vermont28 All Firearms 10 rounds for Long Guns; 15 rounds for handguns

    20 round AK magazine

    I have not seen the ten round Ak magazine but some years ago found two different 20 rd AK magazines. Any help to identify them would be appreciated.

    Thanks Robert

    I have several short black vinyl pouches that are said to be Hungarianicon for holding 20 round mags.
