    I would think those magazines suck for traction.

    • Lee

      Yeah, but its a great deterent-you going to mess with someone who’s got a garden path made from AK mags?

  • CS

    Those are upsetting photos. I hate seeing abused equipment, especially firearms related.

    “Hmmm, I could get ten American Dollars for each of these, or I could use them to make a slippery foot path…. decisions decisions.”

    No wonder they lost the Cold War!

      How can you lose a cold war? How can you lose a war with no battles? What the hell are you on about?

      • Bronze Star 1944

        The Soviet Union imploded. The United States did not. Ergo, we won and you lost.

      • They lost the ‘cold war’ by spending so much money on keeping up with the intelligence and arms race that the Eastern block collapsed. This really has to be explained?

  • Komrad

    I’m guessing these were defective or heavily used. The garden path would have cost a few hundred easily. The road would cost thousands. However, it is an interesting idea.

    thats some funny stuff right there but hey it works

  • Dancingcuban

    You don’t fuck with the country that fills potholes with magazines.

    If you look close, all those “pot hole fillers” are empty!! No, I don’t mean cartridges, I mean springs, followers, etc..

    Yes, they could be defective, but they are probably left overs or an over run at the last minute when the Russians switched to the ALL BLACK mags. Though if not defective, you’re right, I could just cry seeing these things abused like this 🙁 🙁 🙁

    On the “theAKforum.net” it was reported that a guy/company in the UK was selling these and mailing them to buyers in the US for $11 a piece + shipping.

    I got 11 of them for $121 + shipping. They were all Tula made, still had ink stamps on them and one was even a long top!! WOO HOO!!!!!!! I now have 4 complete sets of bakelite mags.
    1. 3 x Izhevsk flat back mags in the correct Russian mag pouch + one mag for the rifle
    2. 3 x Izhevsk ridge back mags in the correct Russian mag pouch + one mag for the rifle
    3. 3 x Tula flat back mags in the correct Russian mag pouch + one mag for the rifle
    4. 3 x Tula ridge back mags in the correct Russian mag pouch + one mag for the rifle

    Plus I have a few extra that I take to the range and shoot with, just to SHOW OFF!! hahahaha
