Command Arms and Accessories (CAA) has announced their new AKMAG Ak-47 magazines is now shipping. The new magazine is of polymer construction featuring a round count window and aggressive texturing for easy magazine manipulation.
Basically, it’s what the Magpul AK Magazine should have been considering Magpul’s long history of see-through polymers on its magazines. Unfortunately, the CAA AKMAG also keeps the polymer catch tab at the back of the magazine. I digress…
The CAA AKMAG is designed to function in most AK-47 and AK-M pattern rifles. It has a full standard capacity of 30 rounds using an orange anti-tilt follower to easily check remaining rounds and magazine status. The spring is “MIL-SPEC” heat treated. Weight clocks at less than half a pound at around 7 ounces.
Retail is set at $27.00 each, which is surprising considering the polymer nature of the magazine. Brand new Mil-Surp metal magazines continue to be less expensive, but the remaining magazine count feature will be valuable to various customers.
The AKMAG is shipping to all CAA dealers and distributors. Chances are you will see one in a local retail outlet soon if not in the present.
Phil Note: The MSRP is $21.00 for this new mag.
