X-Tech Tactical is a firearms accessory and tactical gear company based out of Mesa, Arizona that has been in business since 2013. They offer a wide variety of gear, mags and accessories for pistols, AR’s and AK’s.
They were good enough to allow me to review some of their gear including their version of the AK Mag, the MAG47
As a serious “end user” and student of the Kalash, finding good, solid, reliable AMERICAN MADE AK mags has always been a challenge. Like most AK users, I have typically always depended on the imported Romy or Bulgy steel mags or the venerable (yet expensive and rare) Bulgy Circle 10’s.
I have always said that with the tightening of import restrictions and bans, the survival of the AK platform will depend on the ability for American companies to begin producing QUALITY AK parts and accessories right here in CONUS.
Well, X-Tech Tactical has rose to that challenge with the MAG47.
According to the description on the website:
The MAG47 is the strongest polymer AK47 magazine to ever be made in the USA. A stainless steel cage reinforces the locking lugs and the feed lips where strength is mission critical. This magazine holds 30 rounds of 7.62 x 39 ammunition and feeds it flawlessly. 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.
