Tapco mag AK mags with AR springs
#1
Title says it all. Found that one of my AK mags was feeling a bit mushy in the follower. So I took it apart to clean it and found a spring that looked really familiar. But not AK familiar. Pulled apart a C Products AR mag and found the same damn spring in it. Took apart a Pro Mag AK mag and the spring was longer and wider. Wink

Sent Tapco/Remington Anim_doh and email about it. While I'm waiting for that abortion to happen, I ordered Wolff springs. All 3 Tapco mags had the wrong springs.

Ok, so Tapco came thru. No questions asked. Since the time I emailed them, I ordered some Wolff springs and some Hungarian AK mags. Once everything arrived I took one of each apart to compare the springs. Spring length, from longest to shortest is as follows: Hungarian, ProMag, Wolff +5% and Tapco. I originally got the Wolffs to replace the Tapco springs, but have installed the Tapco factory ones, and see how they function.

At the very least I have extra +5% springs to add into any of the mag bodies.
