Check out kalashconcepts.com (http://www.kalashconcepts.com)!

I've dropped a few hints about what I'm going to be offering, but the site's live now and folks are welcome to pre-order steel AK mags with mag lock tools installed. The prototypes have worked great, and I'm offering them at a lower price for pre-order to get the word out. I've also got some other fun stuff on the site coming soon, like mags with custom witness cuts and a rail-mounted AK rear sight block.

I've had some interest here so I hope you guys enjoy!

any actual pictures or video of it in use? I'm trying to figure out the ergonomics of this mag change.

There's a photo on the product page. I'll post a video shortly. The only one I have at the moment is pretty low-quality. It's almost identical to a mag change done by knocking the empty out with a fresh mag.

Those look alot like the UBBT for AR-15's. All my PMAGs have those and they work wonderfully. Just have to get the muscle memory down and it's easy peasy.

Good luck!

What is the device made of?

My mag release spring/lever On my 10/63 is so tough/tight I feel anything not some sort of metal would bend/break.

Or is my mag release just not normal lol

The interior is steel, the sleeve is polymer. It's very, very tough. I have an AK with a very stiff mag latch, and it's no problem. The tool actually gives you more leverage. Anything you'd do to break the tool would probably destroy the mag anyway. In other words don't run it over with a truck ;)

Now that gets my interest.

Is it designed for a TWS rail? How high above the rail is the top of the leaf sight?

Here is the same idea manufactured by a company called Solar Tactical.

Here is a video demonstration:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvW6yNfI5HA

The tabs they use are plastic. You could consider using the same idea only with metal tabs. Also, the tabs could be a little longer.

The Solar Tactical models are different, they aren't permanently installed on the mag. I love Solar Tactical, but I found their velcro wrap didn't have enough grip to prevent it front turning around when used against their bullet button. Mine are metal on the inside, it's just the sleeve that's polymer. My tabs are significantly longer than theirs which I find helps too.

What am I missing? You need a password to check out your sight?

What you are missing is reading post #11 #13. The site has been taken down until further notice.

And no, you do not need a password to examine his vision.
