After posting yesterday’s long and curved AR15 Magazine, I came across something similar for the AK47.

 

The top photo looks like someone coupled two of these mags above. Anyone have hands on experience with these ridiculous magazines? It looks like there is some sort of stabilizer at the other end of the magazine, where it almost touches the muzzle. But how would you insert and remove this giant magazine? AK mags need to tilt forward to be removed. If you tried to do this with the magazine above, the bottom of the magazine hits the barrel. Maybe you have to twist the mag body to the side and then the bottom of the mag can clear the barrel and you can remove the magazine?

In the top photo I believe those are two 100 rd magazines. I cannot imagine trying to shoot an AK with 200 rounds on it. Although a beltfed wouldnt be so bad. This just looks impractical.

      If you kept coupling the 100rd Norinco? (Chinese, at any rate) mags together, you’d end up with one heck of a corkscrew.

          I bring it up because I saw at least half a dozen coupled together in the late 90s as a gag. I wish I had a digital camera on me back then!

            Man, we sure did a lot of drugs back then, huh?

            You’re implying we stopped.

            I definitely feel like I’m on something whenever I turn on the news.

        Or a hella cool hot wheels track.

        And in the next life, your bullets — having traversed the circle of enlightenment — get to return as a larger faster caliber.

    The 100rd magazines curve to the side, they come off easily.

    There was also a model (the second picture you posted) which clips onto the muzzle and then swings into place. To remove it, you simply press the release and tilt it down on the feed side, then off the muzzle.

    Since somebody asked what a bullpup AK would look like with a 100 round mag.

  • Veteran for Trump

    Take a closer look at the top picture. The mags are clipped together side by side.
    Remove one, reverse and insert the second mag.

    The first picture is the US made 100 rounders. They worked about as well as you’d expect. The second is a factory prototype that never went very far for obvious reasons.

    Impractical you say? Yes, I dare say when the magazine outweighs the not all that light firearm, things are getting there…

      I would also point out that a belt fed AK probably wouldn’t be the greatest idea ever. A few overzealous mag dumps with the normal 30 rounders can produce some smoke, but you shoot a belt fed in the hundreds of rounds and you might temporarily lose fingerprints and eyebrows…
