    Does anybody have any experience with Croatian-made AK-47 magazines? I saw some in a local gun shop today. They appeared to be pretty well made.

    I only have Chinese and Egyptian mags made of metal. Got a couoje of Romanian guns and mags some years back, but never did like them much. They worked, but did not operate as smoothly as my other guns.

    There was a lot of binding and drag between the bolt carrier and hammers in the Romy guns. Pattern of th Romy recievers not being the same as Russian pattern guns. All the mags swapped out between the Romy guns, Chinese, and Egyptian.

    I later found some poly mags and they worked in all of them. No idea of who made the poly mags. Did the reqired fix on the Rmy guns to smooth them up. Sold them and still have the others.

    Iam not familiat with any AKs or mags made in Crpatia. But, it would seem ajj mags would be the same.
