AK accessory and gear maker US Palm recently debuted their new AK30R magazines for AK variant rifles and pistols. The R stands for Range and their new AK30R mags are a more budget friendly alternative to their current AK30 mags that they’ve had on the market for the past eight years. Their new AK30R mags have the exact same look and feel as the AK30 mags but to reduce cost and the MSRP US Palm left out the metal reinforcements at the front and rear of the locking lugs (see the image below).
For practice use at the range these make sense, especially at the MSRP of just $12.95. The original US Palm AK30 mags retail for $19.95, which isn’t that much either. If you buy the new AK30R mags in bulk from US Palm the price becomes even better, they’re offering a pack of five AK30R mags for $60 or a pack of ten of them for $100. The new AK30R mags feature a low friction self cleaning polymer follower, a sealed one piece design and a proprietary polymer body and end cap. They weight in at 6.5 ounces and come in only black and for 7.62×39 at a 30 round capacity. Check them out at USPalm.com.
