I'm sure Cane has some more (much more usually) sources than these, but I have never had a problem with any used surplus. I got a bunch with "East Germany" stickers on them and they work great. Anything steel from Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria or many others will work great.

I just took all my mags apart last weekend and checked the quality of the springs. Out of darn near 20, only 2 were really compressed. Who knows if it was just well used or stored fully loaded too long, but I just replaced them with the 5% extra strength springs that midway has and filled 'em up ~75% of capacity. Good (or better) as new.

Here's a couple of the economical/consistent sources I use.

Arms of America LLC

J&G Sales

Shooting Supplies, Reloading, Gunsmithing, Hunting, Ammunition, Gun Parts & Rifle Scopes — MidwayUSA

Careful with Midway's 40 round surplus. Last time it came in poly. Oh well. . .

WASR is without a doubt the most fun gun I own!



Sweet what you did with yours Canebrake, mine looks like it was made out of a fence post.

It needs a face lift pretty bad but shoots like a house on fire!

I have a Romanian AK-47 WASR10.



I've put a lot of rounds through it and it's accurate and never jammed on me.

I like it.
