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?
Ummmm, yes. That is VERY correct.
Anyone know of any new quality mags?
There are several AR's that accept AK mags. Rock River builds one but I think the better one is made by CMMG. Their lower must be used with their upper which uses a AR10 BCG so you basically only can buy a built rifle but it seems like the thing to do if if really want to run 7.62 x 39 in a AR
I've already built it.
What magazine is pictured in that Rock River rifle?
Those mags are made by Master Molder of Wilson NC for Rock River.
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?
It's a AK47 mag
Have you checked with curts
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.
