Magazine difference, AK 47 vs. AK 74?
Posted 23 August 2011 - 07:43 PM
"Magazines for both rifles are similar except for the minor changes in dimensions to accommodate different size cartridges. AK-74 magazines are polymer, and have a raised horizontal rib on each side of the rear lug to prevent their use in a 7.62x39mm AK."
So, please help me here if I'm off base. I already missed out on the group buy of 45 rounders. Does this mean my 7.62X39 magazines will hold and feed the 5.45?
And in an emergency I could shave off the horizontal ribs on each side of the AK-74 magazines to use them for the 7.62X39 round in my AK-47s?

I love my steel Polish mags...I couldn't even imagine using a 45 round mag. I think they are too long...
Too long for what? Prone shooting? Even a 30rd mag is too long for that. 45rd mags are almost exactly as long as a 10rd S12 mag.
It's all in what you get used to.
