47 round black Zytel nylon magazine for AK-47, 7.62x39

I bought ten of these magazines and they feed flawlessly into my AKM. Never any problems. They are made of an incredibly strong top quality material that is lightweight and tough as nails.
At first I bought two and after thoroughly testing them I purchased eight more. They are much longer than the standard 30 round which may get in the way under certain circumstances, such as shooting from a gun vise. With an 8 inch or higher bipod there are no problems with clearance.
I love these magazines which will come in handy for SHTF situations. The only drawback is they are too long for standard magazine pouches. This can easily be fixed by anybody with a sewing machine . At Walmart I found a camo "Fieldline Montana Waist Pack" which 5 magazines fit perfectly with room to spare for other items.
It would be great if Thermold offered extended mag pouches since they are the only manufacturer producing these extra capacity magazines. It would most likely increase their magazine sales.
