US Palm has come out with a production version of what has been a long-time inside joke within the AK owners community – a special edition Banana magazine. The Banana magazine is a refreshed version of the US Palm AK-30 magazine which claims to be the most advanced AK magazine currently on the market.
US Palm Introduces New Banana Special Edition 30-Round AK Magazine
Instantly recognizable and forever dependable, this is the world’s most advanced AK-47 30-round magazine.
The sealed, one-piece design is built to endure with a proprietary polymer. A low-friction self-cleaning polymer follower keeps performing while the stainless steel latch cage ensures positive loading that won’t give way when you need it the most.
The unique waffle and tread design that distinguishes the US PALM magazine provides a solid grip for the shooter during loading and unloading while providing rigid reinforcement.
US PALM is an icon among AK enthusiasts, and for good reason.
I had a chance to run one of the new magazines at a media event and it ran just as well as you’d expect from any other US Palm AK magazine. The construction is sturdy and the coloring of the magazine isn’t just a coating – the plastic of the body of the magazine, the follower, and bottom plate are all injection molded in their respective colors meaning the coloring won’t fade away over time.
While the Banana magazine doesn’t provide any tactical or functional improvements over the standard AK-30 magazine, it does provide a bit of flair and fun to AK ownership. The US Palm AK-30 Banana special edition magazine will be on sale shortly directly from US Palm and will be priced at $19.99 per magazine. Each magazine will also come with a special edition US Palm Banana Magazine patch included in the packaging.
