Just received my box of 7 of these mags. I figured I should get them while the getting is good, and watching steel mag prices slooooowly creep up across the market. These are very nice FLATBACK mags, apparently unused, unmarked but strongly resembling Albanian. A few of mine have tiny amounts of cosmoline arouind the feedlips. They fit and release consistently in both my rifles, an SGL21 and the Maadi with a very picky mag release.

Thanks for a great deal on some great mags!

I have always thought they were Albanian, although they arrived with M70 Yugo Rifles,

How do you tell a difference between these and the Chinese mags...they look like they are the sane exact thing...

they don't have Chinese markings, like Chines mags.

Albania was in the bed with the Chinese, the UM Gramsh Factory was set up BY the Chinese using Chinese Machines and Tooling, and made milled and stamped receiver AKs just like the Chinese

Interesting provenance and history, thanks Bryan. Just finishing the last few pages of C.J. Chivers The Gun tonight. He glosses over Albanian/Chinese cooperation on Kalashnikov production, just mentioning it at a high level and in passing.
