Needs work.
I purchased 3 of these mags having read the mostly positive reviews. I have purchased other Keepshooting mags for the Sig Mosquito and the Walther P22 and was very pleased with the quality and function. The Makarov mags not so much. The first problem I noticed right out of the box was the floor plates are loose. This is due to the magazine being made of thinner steel than the factory original mags. The quick fix is to slightly bend the lips on the bottom of the mag to tighten up the gap in the floor plate. The second problem is the slide stop tab on the side of the mag sticks out too far and will drag in your mag well. This needs to be filed down to the factory specs for proper function. Third problem is the feed lips are bent to almost 90 degrees. You need to bend these to match you factory mag angle. Fourth problem is the magazine is not cut deep enough where the bullet meets the pistols feed ramp. This is an easy fix with a file or dremel. Problem number 5 is the biggie. The magazine catch/release tab on the back of the mag is too high. This causes the mag to sit too low in the pistol. This causes poor feeding because of the increased angle on the feed ramp and only slightly pushed up the slide stop after the last round is fired. I haven't been able to come up with a fix for this problem yet. Maybe KS can correct this on the next batch? I hope this helps. I have been a Mak fan for 20 years and own 5. I have 2 Russian, 2 Bulgarian and 1 German so I am quite familiar with Maks and any issues they may have.

Rough, But Worth an Effort
Purchased two of these and they do have good consistency of quality - unfinished. They both exhibit the same deficiencies as others have mentioned. Be prepared to rework an item into functionality. Mostly of concern are the loading tab's interference and the catch in the wrong place. The 5 stars part is for the price, and given that they are recoverable with some effort, the item is well worth the price. Just please be careful.

Needs work to function, but some flaws cannot be worked out.
I bought a handful of these for a Bulgarian Makarov.

First thing that I noticed, is that they created a lot of friction when being inserted into the magazine well. I noticed that some magazines would produce so much friction at this tab, that they would fail to cycle, as the follower would be jammed in the middle of the mag due to the tab grinding it to a halt. This is due to the follower having too long of a tab that pushes the slide stop up. The solution to excessive friction was to file down that tab to make it as long as the factory original.

Second thing that I noticed, is that the magazines will sometimes fail to chamber a round on the first round. This is because of the front of the magazine feed lip is higher than the originals. This created a ton of friction on the top round, and on the following rounds as well. I was able to easily remove rounds from the factory magazine, while these new ones would need a LOT of force to remove by hand. The solution to this, is to file the front of the magazine where the rounds pass over.

I noticed that these magazines only pushed the slide stop half way up. They would sometimes make the slide fail to lock open after the last round because of this. This has no solution that I am aware of, as you would need to add some material to make the tab push the slide stop all the way up.

Then I compared these mags with the factory ones, and noticed that the little notch for the magazine release was in a different spot as well. This could have contributed to the failure to lock the slide back.

These magazines are junk when used in the standard Makarov (Bulgarian in this case, which is identical to the Russian military model). I would not trust my life with them, and I would not trust them to be at the range.

The ONLY reason why I gave these a value of 2 stars, is because I was able to take the springs out of them, and put one in the original factory magazine. Perhaps the flood plates interchange as well. Hopefully, the springs are of better quality than the rest of these mags.

finish is quite rough -
Compare to the S&W 69 magazine I received from KeepShooting this magazine is quite rough. Barely fits into the mag well and will absolutely will not drop free.

I see the 24 round break in warning but I can't imagine it will break in that much in 24 rounds.
