In the event that anyone has a SR47, note that the STAR Revolution 30rd AK mags don't fit into the body. The ribs on the sides of the mag are about 1mm larger in total width than TM mags. On order to make them fit, you have to grind down the upper section of those ribs. From there, they feed and fit fine, although with the long hopup tube of the SR47, you'll lose a good 4-5 BBs from the mag capacity.

The STAR mags also fit VERY tightly into the AK metal bodies (CA body I believe) prior to the modification.

I haven't tried them in a stock AK, but imagine they would fit fine because the plastic body will flex a bit.

The G&G Magnesium Body also has this problem. The orange G&G hicap mags have a problem with the width as the standards do.
