I've used them (back when I still "did" 5.45)

They are COMMERCIAL production mags. Some say they aren't quite as high quality as the military ones.

The ones I had we're steel feed lips, but not steel lined completely and looked the same as the link, markings and all. The ad you linked states steel lined, and steel feed lips. Dunno.

Anyways they were fine mags. No problems with them personally, but I've never torture tested my mags or anything like that. If you like the price I'd say go for it.

Not all AK pattern guns are the same (dimensionally). That would depend more on who made the receiver, built the gun, selector stop position and other variables.

I had two tantals, one built and one century. The century magwell was a little tighter, but both would run AK74/RPK74 mags.

Have a few. Have not had any issues with them.
