I bought a tapco mag for my russian sks and it wiggles up and down slightly, has this happened to anybody else? I haven't shot the rifle with this mag yet so I don't know if it affects functionality.

The Tapco mags are hit and miss on an SKS, I'm not sure if there's a fix for this? Depending on the amount of wiggle, you may have feeding problems....then again, you may not. Since you're aware of it though, if you do have problems you have something to zero in on.

Is it a new or used magazine???
If there is slight play you might not have an issue but if there is lots of movement it will be nothing but a headache.

Its a new mag, never fired. I wouldn't call it a slight play or a crazy amount. It's a big enough that you can see it wiggle up and down.

Could be just fine then. As long as it sits nice and flush on the bottom mag release lever. Try to shoot it first. If you do run into issues it can be a quick and easy fix then.
