My Bulgarian 74 works just fine with any of the 74 mags.
Russian and East German bakelites as well as the Russian plums work fine.
The black and brown Bulgarian work fine as well.
The only ones mine does not like are the Pro Mags.
Pro Mags 762X39 worked fine in my other AK's

Thanks from M14vrp

My Bulgarian AK74 has the plum furniture with a black magazine.

Did the Bulgarians produce a plum colored magazine or was it just the Russians?

Good question I have no idea.
My plum furniture and two plum mags are Russian.
My plum Izzy mags are kind of quirky.
If you load 29 or 30 rounds they fail to work but 28 rounds they work just fine.

Thanks from M14vrp

The Russian's were the ones with the plum color. They did supply the Bulgarians with stock sets when the Bulgarians were producing AK74's. M14vrp when you call your AK74 a Bulgarian, what do you mean? Is it an Arsenal SLR104FR or something else?

Purchased an all matching serial # Bulgarian AK74 kit from Gunthings.com years ago. Had CMP Armory (James Mayo) assemble it on a USA semi receiver (manufacturer in Texas). Used 6 USA parts to be compliant.

Thanks from Tommo and Glashaus
