Much like the AR-15 ammo boxes we reviewed last month, the Caldwell AK ammo boxes work in conjunction with the Caldwell AK magazine charger we featured earlier. These ammo boxes are specifically designed to hold 7.62x39 mm ammunition to help in the care and feeding of your AK magazines.

Custom-fit to work with the charger, these ammo boxes hold 50 rounds of 7.62x39 mm ammo either to be loaded into the mag charger or for improved long-term storage over the military-surplus cardboard boxes that 7.62x39 mm often comes packaged in. Made like the .223 Rem. counterparts, the plastic cover even nests under the box itself when not in use.

Using the ammo boxes with the charger is quite simple. Load the boxes with the ammo pointing up, then invert the charger, match up the rounds with the holes, and tip back. It works even if the ammo box is not 100 percent full – you can load 30 rounds for a standard magazine with ease. It makes filling an AK magazine almost as quick and easy as emptying one.

MSRP: $24.99 (five-pack).

Fightin' Iron: Lever Gun

At the mid-point of the 19th century, the world of firearms was changing fast. The main service rifle was still a cumbersome single-shot of .69 caliber. It worked on cap, ball and powder, delivered a massive blow and produced clouds of smoke. True, it got the job done.
