I concur..........When I "accidentally" bought my Romanian '75 copy, the mag that came with it was all rusted inside. The only other mags they had were just as bad, so I got online and ordered some old used military mags, I think I paid $80 for ten of them. Not a single problem, ever. The military mags are what I trust!I've had no problems with the basic surplus steel mags. They are tough as nails too. Ak's and ak mags are very tough.
