Russian Tula Bakelite 30 Round AK47 Magazine – 7.62x39mm

Russian Tula Bakelite 30 Round AK47 Magazine – 7.62x39mm

Russian bakelite magazines were produced in the Tula factory. They were designed to be a durable lightweight replacement for steel magazines. The magazines are made out of an early polymer AG4 and commonly referred to as bakelite.


Cyrillic mold magazines are the last generation of bakelite magazines made and some will have steel reinforced feed lips while others may not. Tula cyrillic magazines have either a flat or ridged back.


Magazines may have small amounts of rust on metal surfaces and are covered in oil and we recommend cleaning before use. Many appear to be unissued but due to how they were stored we have graded them very good to excellent condition.


* Russian manufactured by Tula

* 30 round capacity

* 7.62x39mm

* Surplus


The good condition magazines have similar wear as the “very good” condition magazines, but the feed lips are much more worn.We cannot ship to states or counties with magazine capacity restrictions.
