We've all heard the expression "less is more," right? Well, here's a case that proves exactly the opposite: Sometimes, more is more.

Gibbs' Matra 30-round steel AK magazines are more. Made in the former Yugoslavia, these tough mags boast more steel, more weight and more company standing behind them. These are not magazines for the faint of heart or light of arm strength—these are serious, durable metal magazines that will break toes if dropped. Okay, I might be exaggerating slightly on the last part, but I'm certainly not volunteering my feet for testing...

All-steel construction and ribbed walls—like all good AK magazines should have—and something else that those com-bloc spare magazines don't have: A five year, unlimited, no-questions-asked warranty that will replace your magazine should anything happen. That's a company that stands behind its product right there.

MSRP: $18.95, available in any color you like, as long as it's black.
