That is why XTech Tactical is excited to announce the release of its Generation 2 MAG47 line of AK47 composite magazines. The MAG47 Gen 2 will be available in three different varieties including a California-compliant one and all three new variants will include improvements to both their construction and reliability factors.

Generation 2 XTech MAG47, MAG47 Mil, and MAG47 10/30 Released
The testing has been very extensive firing 20,000 plus rounds. The MAG47 has proven to be extremely reliable. We also worked extensively with manufacturers to make certain this magazine fit into every rifle we could get our hands on. The MAG47 lives up to the renowned reliability of the AK47 platform.
The Gen 2 magazine features new stainless steel reinforced feed lips and locking lugs, super-tough composite construction, a wide variety of AK47 compatibility, a spring anti-bind mechanism, stainless steel magazine spring, and a quick release base plate for simplicity of maintenance. Pricing on the Gen2 magazines is set at $28.95 which puts them in the same price range as the popular Magpul Gen 3 AK magazines.
As an added benefit, Gen2 MAG47 magazines can also have a bolt hold option follower installed which will cost an additional $3.00 and can be removed if desired. While the Standard version features the stainless-steel reinforced feed lips and lugs, the MIL variant features an added solid machined steel rear locking lug, and the 10/30 variant, dubbed the “Commufornia Special” features a capped 10-round capacity that is capable of being easily field stripped for those that live in restricted states.
For you, hardcore AK guys out there, what jumps out at you about the Generation 2 MAG47 lineup? Are there enough improvements added to these magazines to make them a desirable option over surplus steel or other polymer mags on the market? Let us know what you think!
