Russian Early Production Izhmash “Back stamp” AK47 Magazine

The earliest Soviet ribbed mag, the “Izhmash Back-Stamped Ribbed Mag”, has the Izhmash factory mark stamped on the bottom-back of the mag like the Russian Slab-Side mag. At first, these mags were blued, but this was eventually changed to a baked-on black enamel finish. Izhmash reportedly switched to a baked-on enamel finish on its AKs shortly before production of the AKM model began in 1959. The followers on these early Izhmash ribbed mags will have a large pill shaped bulge with a hole through its front left side.
