Default RPK 74 Mag Springs/retention plates

I have several RPK74 Molot mags and a couple mag bodies without springs, followers or retention plates. Is there a source for these parts or does anyone have any suggestions on how to obtain functioning springs? Would standard length AK74 mag springs work?

Thanks, the springs were a touch longer if I remember right so hopefully will not cause any issues. What do you think about Wolf springs? They advertise 5% increased strength. What is the best source for mag parts?

uses the same internals as the 30 rounders, no difference.

In that case, I will probably buy 2 molot 10 rd ers and some wolf ak74 springs and call it a day. At least I will keep it almost factory and all russian. Should this work? I wonder if the springs in the 10 rounders are the same size as the 30 rd springs.

No, only 30 rounders, buy the Bulgarian commercial mags for cheap internals, they are mil spec.

Hmm, I should have a 10 rd Molot mag to try out from my fm 74. So those will not function? The Bulgarian commercial mags are cheap and functional so those are a good idea.
