If you’ve been following pre SHOT SHOW Magpul announcements you know that for the first time in its history, the company will be introducing a complete rifle chassis centered around the Remington 700 bolt action. However, their parade of new products does not end there and the company recently announced its line of AK furniture that includes folding stocks, hand guards and a variety of other accessories. With that announcement comes the revelation that it would be producing PMAG AK magazines with steel reinforcements and more importantly steel lock up points. The announcement comes as great news to AK owners across America. The new PMAG30 AK/AKM GEN M3 -7.62×39 Steel Reinforced Magazine will have an unofficial MSRP $26.95. However, this is a good budgetary start.
As excited as you all may be, be advised that if you own a milled receiver AK you will be be out of luck for any of the Magpul AK stock products – at least for the time being.
