After a long wait, the Type 81's have arrived, and our tradition of modifying everything wasn't far behind. What we've discovered is that AK magazines will function with a bit of careful fitting, albeit without a bolt hold open mechanism. As such, we've decided to offer a mag fitting service to those who aren't inclined to DIY. The fee is $9.99 for synthetic, or $14.99 for steel (per mag). So far we've adapted M305-A, Magpul 10, and Magpul 30 magazines.

Another interesting discovery is that VZ58 grips will work with some fitting, much like the AK magazines. That means that we can install virtually any VZ58 grip to your Type 81 if you so desire. If you are interested, drop us a line or show up in store and we'll have it done in a jiffy.

By now you're probably wondering what a functioning Magpul 30 looks like in a Type 81, so let us aid you with some eye candy;

Since (the way I understand things) the hold open device functions off the magazine follower, I wonder if any aftermarket followers would bring back the hold open feature using regular AK magazines.

Say what you will about the type 81's, they still look fantastic with that folding stock.....
