Tapco Intrafuse
 
On a whim, I picked up 3 Tapco 30 rd Intrafuse mags for my AK (I did not feel comfortable with only 4, 30 rounders. They seem to be well made. They fit and functioned perfectly. Anyone else have any experience with these?

I have one that came with my recent purchase and its been well ,well used . Really its pretty ragged on but it still works flawless . I found a place that has used Russian steel mags for $16 . I like these best they just seat up in the magwell a tad better but maybe thats because mines over used . Everyone I have talked to about mags says the tapco is GTG in the AK and works as well or better than most of the $30+ mags out there

People always smack of the "Crapco" magazines, but personally I find the TAPCO mags very sturdy and reliable. Also, they are dirt cheap!

I like my tapco 30s. The shells strip out nice and smooth and ive never had a problem with them after many hundred rounds. They have worked really well for me and I cant complain at all.

That said, these are not steel reinforced in any way. Ive seen tests where they will fail at the rear tab because of this. For cheap mags, they are great, but I wouldnt be going all 'combat' with them.

I don't know why. They serve me well also

I have 6 or so they work fine np at all but they only take 29 rds.
They don't snap into place as nicely as the metal ones.

I have 3 of the 20 rounders for my SKS. Mine work perfectly. But they do not handle rounds that are as long as the original mag. I seat my handloads a little shorter so no big deal.

Love Tapco products

I don't have any (yet) but I hear they work very well, and the material is far more reliable than plastic. I know that for the sks certain models need filling for compatibility, but then again tapco makes a universal magazine, and there are several varients of the sks. As for the Ak, i havent heard about any filling required, just ready to go out of the package!

They have strong bodies I've owned the AR version. Steel reinforcement not needed IMO.
Other polymer mags have been used in combat by US military in AR's.

Buddy of mine is a big Ak guy and swears by them.
