If you scrape around a bit you'll notice 5.56 and 5.45 mags for AKs are fairly similar in profile, much straighter than 7.62x39. Reason being 7.62x39 is narrower at the shoulder than it is at the base by around 1.2mm, 5.56 only has a difference of roughly 0.6mm between base and shoulder. So when you stack the 762 it creates that curvature and the mags have to be that way in order to accept the full 30 rounds and then feed them out again properly.

 

Those translucent waffled mags are by Arsenal in Belgium and come in various colours and all the main AK calibers, although the big US online guns stores seem to be in short supply (they're probably fairly rare over there). Here's an example much like the ones we get in airsoft:

AFAIK, Beta Project originally came out with the airsoft replicas and I'd imagine that's where PTS got their idea for the TMAG. The actual Magpul Industries AK magazines look just like PMAGs in terms of their surface, although IMO I think they kinda look weird, like an AR mag that's got a bit melted.

well, I am quite sure the gun in the picture is the real thing... All my airsoft AK mags work in all my AKs^^ but a 7.62 in a ak74 just doesnt look right.

well, I'd agree with mostly everything above.. but I do kind of fail to see how it is relevant thou? unless you know where the get the airsoft counterpart to the arsenal magazines? even if it's 7.62, I'll just pop it in my akm :)

Just making some points related to the overall topic, a bit of extra information never hurt anyone. If the overall question was the RS calibre of the magazines Beta Project replicated, then yes they're 545 (or possibly 556 but the difference is minimal to say the least).

 

(speaking to the general readership here) With the usual caveat of airsoft tolerances you can use any airsoft AK mag in any bloody gun you want. The only people I've seen berate others over the 'terrible sin' of putting a 545 mag in a 762 gun were bordering-clinically mental USSR obsessives who got themselves off every night under their hammer and sickle duvet cover at the thought of personally combing Stalins' moustache.

The mental image of that is quite disturbing. Excuse me while I go and scrub my brain with wire wool and bleach...

Especially when you imagine Ed doing it. Wish my metal 7.62x39 midcaps fitted into my Inokatsu AK47S - they should do V^^V grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

MB-06 with 4x32 ACOG syle with Red Dot.
Upgraded spring, spring guide and piston, she kicks out 514fps avarage with 0.2's.

Light, maneuverable and f*****g ugly, but I love it. New tactical stock with cheek rest is in the post, she's gonna be my prime mid to long range sniper.

Yes it's some pegboard we had in our garage. Many places don't sell it anymore as they use the different wall hangings now but you can buy some relatively cheap on Amazon. It is great for displaying and organising your gear - I'd say it's worth it if you're interested in doing something like it. In my opinion a better alternative to buying those gun racks that are £60-£80+.

I may have to look into that, as soon as I can clear some space on my wall- getting it won't be a problem as they have huge sheets of unused pegboard at my local cave of a hardware store.
