    What are my options for magazines when it comes to an AR chambered in 7.62x39?

    I had C products years ago when I had mine. I also have heard that ACS were ok but did not get to try them out.

    a 5.56 20 round straight mag will work... just can't get 20 rounds in.

    if you can find them, the 'frankenmags' worked well. it was a AK mag with an AR mag fixed to the top... thus the Frankenstein reference.

    lastly, you could get a lower made by MGI which has the ability to swap out the magazine well for; AR-15, AK-47, greasegun (45 cal), 9mm colts mags and a bunch of others. The mag wells aren't serialized so with one lower you can have a bunch of uppers and the proper magazines to fit. They're expensive though.

    I am looking for a legit 30 round mag. I'll do some research on the ACS's and the C products. Thanks.

    Any other ideas? AR15 won't accept AK magazines, correct?

    They look sexy and I bet they are better quality than what else is available on the market?

    Are they designed to fit in generic AR15 lower recievers, or the modified 7.62x39 ones?

    I haven't looked for any for a couple of years now but if I remember correctly i was always:) able to pick up 1 or 2 at a local gun show. You should be able to get them from the intermess too. Shouldn't be too hard to come by, you may not like the prices:( though.
