Izhmash AK 47 Bakelite Magazine

 Brief History:

During the early 1960s, the Soviets introduced a new 30-round AK mag made from a glass-fiber reinforced plastic called AG4.  This mag was molded in two halves that were then joined with an epoxy adhesive with steel front and rear lugs being molded into the mag’s body.  The follower, keeper/takedown plate, and floorplate also remained steel.  The respective arsenal’s mark being molded into the bottom right side of the mag while the mold number is on the bottom left side.  Inspector marks were stamped onto the body of the mag with permanent ink.  It is interesting to note that these mags never fully replaced the steel mags in Russian service.  Reportedly, this was due in no small part to soldiers fears that, if they were injured, shards of a plastic mag would not show up in an x-ray.

A large number of variations of the Russian AG4 plastic mag exist.  Very early mags had a mold line that gave the impression of long top, and were brown in color.  The color was quickly changed to a much more common reddish-orange and this was then followed by a mold re-design that moved the mold line higher up on the body.  Mags will also be found with, and without, a noticeable ridge running down the back of the mag, and at least four types of floorplates are known to exist.  Izhmash also had at least two sizes of its factory mark molded into the body.
