Russian Izhmash AK47 30 Round Aluminum Paratrooper Waffle Magazine for the 7,62x39mm caliber
These aluminum magazines, by Izhevsk (a.k.a. Izhmash ) were designed as a lightweight alternative to the earlier slabside and steel spined magaines ( such as the back-stamp, spine-stamp and side-stamp magazines). Tales exist that soldiers were frightened that if a projectile were to strike these magazines, then their rifle would be rendered useless.
Our inventory of New Old Stock Aluminum Waffle Magazines are straight from the factory with cladding on the springs as shown in the pictures, which should be removed before initial use.
