CAA Releases the “AKMAG”

0000274_akmag

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┬áconsidering 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.

    CAA stuff looks like it belongs in an extremely low-budget 90s science fiction movie.

    • BrandonAKsALot

      Like a $500 budget film.

    Looks like CAA needs to stop using abu Hajer’s web design.
    “Abu Hajer! I told you how to spell rifle! What’s wrong with you? You’re spelling everything wrong!”

  • Swarf

    Rifel clons.

    Sounds like a spa treatment.

      Or a Flemish villain in a Bond movie.

    I see TFB’s proof reader also works for CAA ­čśŤ

  • Tyler McCommon

    No metal reinforced feed lips or catch? Meh.

    CAA really knows how to set the bar high for the most terrible and useless “accessories” ever produced for firearms. They are blazing straight past mall ninja into a whole new dimension of tacticool.

  • Scott Tuttle

    shoot, if I wanted plastic mags I would’ve gotten an ar-15!

  • SLi-Fox

    Although I think it’s great that companies are offering products for the AK, I wish somebody would create more solid improvements to the platform. For instance, how about an lower hand guard integrated into the receiver or a picatinny rail integrated into the rear sight block? Or a thumb safety? Some domestic evolution would be appreciated.

    • iksnilol

      I agree about the first (pseudo free floating here we come) and it was kinda done with a Dragunov by a firm in Eastern Europe (they mounted the handguard on the side rail). The second thing has already been kinda done. Plenty of rails that replace the rear sight. Thumb safety has been done with Galils and others, not a rare mod.

    • Stan Darsh

      There is also the new M10X hybrid made by M+M Inc. It is about $1500 but it has most of what you want.

      • SLi-Fox

        Ah! I totally forgot about that one! Thanks for bringing that up!

  • Dracon1201

    No metal feed lips? Trash for AK mag standards. Range toys.

  • Bob

    Polymer mags are harder to pull out of mag pouches, I prefer metal ones. AKs are rock in and knock off, I don’t need textured grips so I can yank and pull on the mags.

    • Dan

      Well said sir, I couldn’t agree more.

  • A Fascist Corgi

    I don’t trust polymer magazines anymore. If they don’t have steel reinforcements (especially on the lips), then I’m not interested.

  • El Duderino

    Prefect for you’re rifel!

  • Jones2112

    Ah ha ha…they want more for this mag than Magpul wants for their Gen III mag that has metal…Nope I don’t think so…they can keep’em…
