    OK, I'm a total noob on this subject. Please be gentle.

    I recently got my first AK. It's a bullpup and it's really not suited to 30-round magazines. They curve so far forward that they interfere with easily getting a good hold on the grip.

    So I'm looking for 20-round (and I suppose I could use some 10-round) mags. 30-round mags of all sorts are everywhere but the only 20-round mags I can find are polymer and not to my taste.

    Does anybody know a good source of higher-quality all-metal 20-round magazines? I'd consider magazines that incorporate a bolt hold-open to be a plus.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    ETA: Forget this thread. I didn't know the jargon but when I figured it out, I found the information I needed here: http://www.texasguntalk.com/forums/rifles/54865-any-good-deals-still-around-ak-tanker-mags.html

    My WASR-10/63 won't take 'em, but it's got a very tight mag well on it.

    Every other AK I have does and they have yet to cause me any problems...

    Hey I know magpul recently announced AK mags. They only have a 30 rounder listed on their site, but I think a 20 rounder might not be too far behind.

    Care to show me where you've read a person say their rifle wasn't reliable with anything other than Tapco mags
