AK's run a lot more reliably than the AR platforms.
I did notice he was using a Tapco magazine and those tend
to be crap and unreliable.
If you have an AK that you need to run 100% reliably, buy
Circle 10 magazines.

I've had no problems with the basic surplus steel mags. They are tough as nails too. I used one once as a hammer to beat a bore obstruction out. It bent the sude of the mag up. Got it home and took a small pry bar to bend it back to straight and it feeds like normal again. Ak's and ak mags are very tough.

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 also have the Military mags and the Circle 10's are tougher.
You could use a Circle 10 mag to beat a Glock into pieces.
Military mags work fine but Circle 10's are hands down the best
you can buy. They are a bit heavier than the steel mags tho.

Are any of you actually using Circle 10 mags or have you just heard
about them?

Never used them. Never seen the need to pay for them when the cheap surplus mags work fine. Only poly mags I have is a tapco and the 10rnd mag that came with my saiga. Don't use them much. Didn't buy the tapco, it came with my wasr.

This is one of those things where if you use them you will see the difference.
They are crazy expensive, but they work and fit and feed great.
I paid almost $50 a piece for mine! :ahhhhh:
