For: Beta Project MagPul 140rd AK Series Mid Capacity AEG Magazine (Waffle/BLK)Product Information:
I ordered the OD one but I figured color does not make a difference since it's just the floor plate. Based on the review above I was expecting a weak feeling magazine with thin walls, I'm not sure if I mistook what he said to the extreme or not. I feel the magazine is very solid, I have a DBoys AKS-74 and this fits well enough, it does indeed wobble side to side, and just a little front to back but it's not a big deal.
The magazine build is to me very sturdy, it has two separate layers, the outside which is the tinted plastic you see in the picture, and then there is a clear inside which houses all the internals. The follower is pretty good, should be able to feed all the last remaining bbs but I've yet to test it. I have 3 different brands of AK-74 magazines, G&G highcap, Dboys Highcap and MAG mids. Out of the three of them honestly as good as the mag mids feel as far as rigidity they do shake internally and they are slightly lighter then this magazine.
I canít comment on how well or poor they feed since I have yet to use it at all but an extra 40 round over my mids is nice. The transparency is such that it wonít give away your round count to an op-for but in daylight you could tell fairly easily. The MagPul plate is honestly the furthest thing from my mind but to others it might be the main reason to get this. Iím not a fan of the waffle style of magazines for any weapon but this isnít that bad, the ridges are not jagged at all they are very smooth so it shouldnít get caught up on anything aside from the magazine lip.
Solid build quality
Transparent is a good
Price for what it is isn't too bad
Capacity is good
It's the 5.56 magazine type of it was an actual AK cal like 5.45 or 762 type I'd really like it but that's not the concept.
Nothing really negative to say for now until I use it on the field.
