Which is better or is one as good as the other? Let me know what yall think. I'm planning to get a couple more mags for my wasr 10 and I was looking at getting steel or the Tapco polymer, but I wanted to hear from yall first to see if one is better than the other.

AK mags

I have both and like both. The tapco polymer will be more durable and take more abuse (kind of similar to magpuls AR mags), but i kind of prefer the all steel mags. They just look more realistic for the rifle. I know its not much help... but I would buy one of each and see what you prefer. Both work great, and I can still find both for around $20-$25 around here.
