TAPCO® is a firearm parts and accessories manufacturer that is based in Kennesaw, Georgia. The company began as a small family business over 25 years ago, but has since exploded to become one of the nation's foremost manufacturers of aftermarket accessories. Unchanging, however, was the company's dedication to strong customer service and quality production. As such, TAPCO® offers a lifetime guarantee on all parts, many of which are marked "TAPCO U.S.A." to signify their proud heritage as an American-owned and operated company.
One of the parts marked "TAPCO U.S.A." is from their lauded INTRAFUSE® line of rifle and shotgun accessories – the new TAPCO® 20-round AK-47 magazine. The TAPCO® AK-47 magazine is a U.S. 922r-compliant part that, as noted, gives you unmatched durability and reliability as it relates to firearm magazines. We just hope that your firearm of choice happens to be the AK-47 or one of the many Kalashnikov-patterned variants chambered for the 7.62x39mm cartridge.
As noted, the TAPCO® AK-47 magazine is a TAPCO®-produced magazine for the AK-47 platform and any of the Kalashnikov-patterned variants chambered for the 7.62x39mm cartridge. The magazine is designed to hold and feed 20 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammunition to your rifle. Its reinforced composite body features a black finish and protects the assembly from rust and other corrosion, placing it far beyond the aftermarket competition and some steel magazines. Additionally, the magazine benefits from a heavy duty steel spring and an anti-tilt follower, both of which guarantee continuous reliable feeds.
Generally speaking, it is beneficial to seek out original factory magazines for your firearms. Original factory magazines are manufactured by the same company, to the exact same specifications and tolerances as those that ship with the firearms for which they are designed. They are also made from the same materials, which ensures both fit and function in your firearm. However, TAPCO® has been a trusted manufacturer for more than a quarter of a century. And with their lifetime guarantee, there is absolutely no risk.

I bought one of these to use with my Yugo M92 AK pistol and it is perfect for it. The 30 rd mags are just too big and make it bulky and heavy. A compact AK should use compact mags and this is the one. Locks up tight with no mag wobble and is very reliable.
I know Tapco makes a good product for the money. The smaller magazines make it easy to shoot from a bench rest. Also that brother-in-law who always burns up a full magazine of your AK ammo in 30 seconds, give him this one and save some ammo.
These mags are great for shooting from the prone position. If you use a bipod and like to do somewhat long range shooting using 30rd mags, then you know how it is trying to adjust the bipod as tall as it will go and arching up your spine to bring the stock up there. That's far from comfy and it puts your head up for the world to see. This allows you to stay much lower and comfortable. Plus they work great!
If you have a vertical grip then you need this mag. It will allow you to load your AK without worrying about the vertical grip mounted on your hand guard or one built in. Buy it.
Just like the TAPCO 30 rounders, these 20 round mags work flawlessly. These shorter magazines make prone-position shooting the AK much easier. Great deal KS keep it up
