    Tapco AK mags

    The 5rd ones from Brownells will not clear customs as they, apparently, have the appearance of holding 15 rounds.



    I hear they're shit anyway.




    Anyone in Nz sell 5 or 7 rd mags that aren't shit?

    Who said customs won't let them through? I imported heaps and they didn't get stopped. They're good quality mags.

    Dafaq? I have it in writing from the customs AO that they are G2G. Who sent you the letter? Scott? Can you upload it? Get your AO on their case.

    It seems they are going full retard on anything AR/AK related lately. I've heard a bunch of stories of dudes having things stopped that shouldn't be.

    Anything that can be attached to an AR or AK now needs a letter from your AO to customs stating that it will only be going on an A-Cat rifle. We had our last shipment held up with this new policy.

    My arms officer is good and had my stock released, but the tapco 5 rders seem to 'appear' to hold more than 7rds

    *sigh* Appearance is so subjective... My Tapco mags hold 7 but if one places them alongside the factory 5 rounder, it might appear as if it could hold more.

    The factory ones can hold way more than 5 if you fuck with them
