Picked up 4 PufGun .308 magazines from Russia through LegionUSA.
I made a review as follows, as my 2nd revision of the original writing.
I have doubts that it will make it on the page in its whole form as follows as other products were mentioned and the fitting might be unpopular, still recommended though:
"Fitting was required, because the rifle had a RAM Enhanced Speed Catch.
Problems occurred which lead us to recommend that the lugs of the PuffGun mag be compared to the lugs of a mag you know works to see if they need to be filed before inserting the magazine in the arm. Just invert one mag next to one in your hand, interlock the lugs for comparison, in front of a bright back ground, and see if the lug is longer than your usual mags and needs a dressing down with a razor knife, dremel or file. EASY!
The above non-factory add on required disassembly to remove the mag on the initial test. Fitting work was:
- 1/16" or 1/8" cut off the lug (per above),
- cut out part of the 5th rd flange in the back where the mag latch contacted the housing in order to get more sweep of the latch,
- may take some of the lower base of the latch off to gain an even more positive hold on the lug.
In comparison to steel mags this PufGun Mag is the BEST Poly option for the Saiga with great spring strength, great follower motion.
PufGun against steel is
.5" longer (but 3/8-5/8" shorter than ProMag or SGM) and more hopeful to fit in Webgear (Does not fit 3 in ALCE AK/.308 pouch),
- you save about $20.
SGM and Promag are 1.8oz heavier loaded, have lighter spring pressure, and the Promag follower stops at the top when pressed down at the tip (binding).
SGM's only perceived advantage is follower motion like the old FBMG/Uinta mags as the follower completely descends when pressed in at the front lug, and that is the analysis of the only SGM we have kept around acquired on trade, as the only other one ever tried did not feed the first 8 rounds and we resigned from trying anymore.
SGM's can be $5-10 more and Promags $9 less.
This buyer holds that the difference above is worth the effort for the gun, and this PufGun Mag is the right Poly for the Saiga .308.
Russian is what Russian does..."
I believe I was nice in writing this.
Promag and SGM users will no doubt have some differing views, and as long as the products are working for them that is what is most important.
The best polys we have around before the Pufs are the FBMG's with the Wolff AK Springs giving them some push, but as we all know, Poly has life limitations, even these.
So, PufGun is here, don't miss out.
