Im looking to purchase AK 47 rebuilt kits and wondered the difference between them.

I want metal magazines but was not sure the benefit of country of origin or if there were any other differences?

Now let's talk about your avatar, and how it may be offensive.

^^^^^ Indeed.

His avatar is a traditional symbol of America in trouble. It is not meant to be offensive be easily seen as so for the unknowing. I would agree with his avatar with the "situation" america is in at this time. I personally do not find it offensive but then again I know what it symbolizes. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_does_it_mean_when_the_flag_is_flown_upside_do wn

Meaning:
According to this code, "the flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property." (Ref. 1.)

I don't mind changing it but can you tell me why it's offensive?

keep it IF you have it displayed as to the real meaning. If not, change it!

This star spangled banner stands for more than mere economic hard times; it represents sacrifices of our brave men & women who have willingly sacrificed for freedom and liberty that many hold dear!

I'm not in a position to lecture you or anyone else for that matter, and I totally respect and support your right to express your feelings and thoughts, but I can also see how someone may get offended by an upside down American flag that's meant to flutter high upright in the wind.

Rejoice in liberty & freedom but know it was, and still is, a hard fought battle that some tend to take for granted....

Back to your subject OP:

I have Solar Tactical 30/10 mags, all metal construction military spec/surplus mags that were moded for 10 rounds.
I have both the one with the spine on the back of the mag and the one with no spine, just a low profile ridge. They all work plenty fine.

............ Good luck building that kit, do show and tell when the job is done!

.... :D

I dont want to get into a debate but I personally do believe the US is in more trouble than just financially. To the OP....IF you have your avatar represented in any other way, I too find it MORE than offensive and recommend you change it.

I actually prefer the chinese metal mags. They dont have the spine in the back.

What ever mags you get just make sure the followers don't bind.

As for the avatar.....Paging Jeff M.

If he is an American citizen (which Im sure he is) he should be able to do whatever he wants with the thing. I may not like or agree with it, but this is AMERICA.

Last Flag Day, I came home in the morning (work nights) and my wife had hung the flag like the OP and I thought she was trying to make a statement .......very unlike her, but I rolled with it and left it. Later that day she mentioned she mounted the flag upsidedown and I told her I thought she was making a statement about the state the country was in....nope, just a mistake on her part. She fixed it.

44mag.com used to have tons of them real cheap, now all they have are hand-picked, still not a bad price:

I bought their regular ones before they ran out and they looked brand new.

How would you go about shipping those in? From what i remember they are not able to be dissasembled. So rebuild kist for them would be out of the question right?

I was working on the new bay bridge toll plaza. The Caltrans lackeys flew the flag in this manner. We told a CHP that was posted there that this was a disstress signal. We asked if he could check on the building. He did a 15 mins later they fixed it. Total fail.
