There is little doubt that the AK has one of the most recognizable silhouettes in the firearm world, a prominent part of which is the rifle’s distinctive banana-shaped magazine. Just like the rifle itself, AK magazines are durable, heavy-duty, and timeless—in the sense that they have the aesthetic sensibilities of something designed in the 1940s. In the same vein, many may also dismiss the construction of the magazines as simple.

As this video from Bosnia-based Matra Group shows, there is actually a lot of work that goes into the construction of an AK magazine.
