    Default Saiga 7.62 x 39 mags

    I'm moving to the area soon and looking for 30 rd magazines for my Saiga 7.62 x 39 (unmodified) rifle.

    I'd appreciate leads on gun shops that carry them.
    Thanks.

    Do you mean just regular AK mags? If so, you shouldn't have an issue finding them at the shops in the area.

    Unless anything has changed with newer Saigas, regular AK mags don't usually work in them, without mods. The mag catch on a Saiga typically doesn't allow a regular AK mag to be rocked in. Also, most Saigas require a bullet-guide to feed from an AK mag reliably.

    That being said, if I'm remembering right, factory 30rd Saiga mags are upwards of $50+ per mag. Maybe even more today. Not to mention, hard to find.

    OP, might wanna look into the simple mods (and they are really simple) that allow you to use regular AK mags, since they are so cheap and plentiful. I did them to 7.62 and it works flawlessly with regular AK mags.
