North Korea Ultra High Capacity Helical AK Magazines

    The bodyguard of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un have been photographed with enormous helical magazines on their AK rifles. The round capacity could be anywhere between 75-150 rounds. I cannot identify the rifles. They are probably North Korea’s domestically produced Type 88, Type 98 or Type 98-1.

    Hat Tip: which appears to be the source of the image.

    Thanks to Reimar and Kollin for the tip.
