This 10-Round magazine is essentially the little brother to the full size 30-Round AK MOE PMAG 30. This PMAG has features that are consistent with the rest of the PMAG line of magazines and are just as reliable, durable and cost effective as all Magpul PMAGs.
The PMAG 10 AK/AKM MOE is designed to hold 10 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammunition. The magazine is designed to be used in Kalashnikov patterned rifles that are chambered in 7.62x39mm. This includes the AK-47, AKM, AKS, Sig556R, as well as many other rifles are are designed to used standard AK-47 magazines.
The 10-round capacity of this magazine make it legal in all 50-states. This, of course means that we will be happy to ship this magazine to the residents of California, New York, Colorado, New Jeresy, and other locations that do not allow standard capacity magazines. However, in addition to being 10 state legal, there are other advantages to this magazine. Due to the low profile of this magazine, it makes for an extremely tight package when inserted in your AK rifle. Due to the magazine not excessively protruding from the bottom of your rifle, you will be afforded more storage options with your magazine inserted into the rifle. For those that have occupations that may require moving in and out of tight spaces, such as cars, the reduced profile of this magazine will make it easier to maneuver with snagging. Also, the 10-round magazine can also be useful for the recreational shooter. The original, 30-round magazine for the AK make it difficult to shoot from the prone position or off of a shooting bench. This is because of the clearance needed for the magazine. Since the 10-round mag has a drastically reduced clearance, it is much easier to attain a prone or bench rest position so that you do not have to monopod off of your magazine. This can make for a more stable shooting position
