MAKE: XTech Tactical
MODEL: MAG47 30 RD AK Mag MSRP: $29
Historically, not a lot of innovation has gone into new AK development, because they tend to work well and are tough. But not all polymer AK mags are created equal. For a long time, the former US Palm AK30 was one of the best. XTech Tactical has partnered with Molded Devices Inc. to bring it back— and it’s even better. Named the MAG47, it’s been updated with a modified rifle metal interface for compatibility with a wider range of AKs, metal-reinforced feed lips, improved internals for strength and to reduce loaded mag rattle, and a baseplate for easy field strip. It’s extremely well-built, rigid and tough. It performed flawlessly and with perfect reliability.
