SHOT Show Rumors About 5.45 AK Mags from Magpul

It appears that Robski from AK Operators Union has let slip that Magpul will be introducing new 5.45 mags at the upcoming SHOT Show. I am really excited about the prospect of reliable, cheap 5.45 mags. If I am honest the cost of quality AK74 mags is something that has kept me from embracing the 5.45 platform over the more traditional 7.62. I think I see a bunch of 5.45 Magpul magazines in my future.

    I'm looking forward to seeing these mags. I love the 545 and not too worried.. I've seen the ammo in bulk still at half what 556 sells for but it isn't as widely available as 556. If things get bad we have seen 556 become scarce too.. I would like to see some boxer primed brass though..

    Didn't the 7n6 ammo ban get undone through an amendment of some "must pass" budget bill that lasts for a year a while back?
