TSI Armories - AK/M4 Magwell Adapter


The TSI Armories AK/M4 Magwell adapter, enables you to use M16 style, STANAG Magazines on your AK. It's body is CNC aluminum with a CNC'd steel magazine release. Needless to say it's a very solid, high quality build.

The adapter attaches to the AK as a regular AK magazine would. No complex installation and it's ingenious design disables the AK magazine release, when a STANAG magazine is in use. It uses a simple, spring actuated, side magazine catch for the STANAG magazine.

So far the TSI Magwell Adapter fit on a Tokyo Marui AK47 plastic body, G&P AK47 metal body and King Arms AK74 metal body. The magwell adapter adds a more "dead space" between the magazine and the hop-up, so expect to see 10 or so bb's fall out during a mag change instead of the usual 5 or so.

The way the magazine sits within the magwell take a little getting used to. For me I found that inserting the magazine front side first, to make sure it seats on the feed nozzle. Then pivot the magazine toward the rear, to engage the mag catch.


I have tested it the magwell adapter with multiple STANAG style airsoft magazines. I had to file down the mag catch a little to work with more magazine types.
