I was at a local gun shop on Saturday and I saw a WASR 3 with an Arsenal "Circle 10" 5.56 mag in it. I used to have a WASR 3 and only used the steel Weiger mags in it. I know that 5.56 AK's are quite particular as to which mags work with them. I asked the clerk if the Arsenal "Circle 10" 5.56 mags could actually be used with the WASR 3, and he said, "Yeah, sure".
Call me a skeptic, but I doubt this, as it was seated pretty tight in the mag well and I could not get it out. Do you folks know if these mags work and feed well in WASR 3 or SAR 3 rifles? That would really be cool, as I have several Arsenal "Circle 10" 5.56 mags.
I did find a pic from a website that shows a SAR 3 with a Bulgy Circle 10 5.56 mag. It does not state how well the mag functions though.
In my SAR-3, I only use Circle 10 Bulgarian 5.56mm magazines. Sold all my Weiger mags.
Here is a link to ensure that the magazines will work/fit.
That's great news. Thanks for the info!
Thanks for your help guys. I modified two Bulgy 5.56 mags to use on my SAR 3 and they work really well. I'm going to mod the rest of them as well.
