Yugo M57 Tokarev magazine question

I thought all Yugo M57 Tokarev magazines had their separate parts stamped with part numbers, e.g., 4-00.001, 4-00.100, etc.

Well, magazine that came with a Yugo M57 Tokarev i got from SOG has no part #s stamped anywhere - other than this it looks like any of the other M57 magazines I have in fit & finish - although the base plate does have a deep blue finish, like the Polish mags.

Also, there is what looks like "K 3" electropenciled on the left side just above the baseplate, where the part # - 4-00.001 would be.

The magazine is in new condition & functions fine.

Could this be a "later production" Yugo magazine not bearing the mil-spec numbers?

If so, maybe the Yugoslavians did manufacture "extra" mags at a later date...

Anyone else receive a similar mag?

My magazine is like yours, no part numbers and a polished blued base plate. No electro markings either.

So... I bet that Zastava Arms manufactured magazines for these pistols after they became military surplus.

Bet we'll see some of these mags imported sometime in the future...

Century just received some SKS 59/66 - imported from Serbia so I hear.

BTW JAGGUY - saw a pic of your M57 posted here - nice pistol I prefix i think makes it one manufactured in 1966.

... my mag did have the polished blued baseplate but with a lanyard loop.

I read somewhere that these are coming with one non-Yugo mag. One of mine fails to lock up securely (like to just fall out from time to time) while the other locks up fine. Only had it for a few weeks so I can't say for sure. Haven't even been out to the range with it yet. Heck, haven't been to teh range in ages. I'll check for the Yugo parts #s on the spare when I think of it next.

I want to confirm that both of my Tok mags have the Yugo 4.whatever stamped in the left side of the mag body down near the floor plate.

On the subject of M57 mags, I was at the Fredneck show this weekend, and a guy was selling all kinds of magazines. He had what he called "East German" Tokarev mags. I was wary of buying one to fit my M57 before doing some research. Does anyone know about those mags, and if they'd fit the M57?

What you have is a CZ Tokarev Mag Aftermarket by 3K, You can find them on the Net for around $20. The CZ is the exact configuration as the Yogo with the exception it is about 1/16" shorter, holds 8 rounds. and does not have a locking notch.
The CZ Mag is very easy to alter for the YUGO. A Dremel is used to cut the notch on the side of the Mag for the Lock and about 1/4" is taken off the follower to allow for the 9th round.
I've cut two of them and they work flawlessly, although there are many post that the 3K's are crap and mis-feed.
Check Gunbroker there is a guy there selling altered 3k CZ's for I believe $40. There are also several genuine Yugo mags for around $70, If you want to cut your own you can get a $20 CZ 3K and make your own cuts.
Warning, The locking notch must be cut a fraction low and worked to the Lockup with a small file removing a little metal at a time on the Slot you cut until the Mag Locks.

PM me if you want and I'll send you an Adobe file on making the alterations.

No, I am aware of that mod, and about the quality of those mags... and that in order to hold 9 rounds, the follower has to be modified also...

No, this is a Yugo 9 round magazine that came from SOG with the pistol.
