    Post up a photo of your mag well, and the little blocks that are spot welded right inside the well. I've don't quit a few but need to know what yours look like.

    model will help too....Yugo single stack guns will need a new bolt, older Romanian guns just need the magwell opened up.

    Inside the magwell are there two flat plates spot welded in place?

    Some single stack bolts do still work after the conversion, some folks have had feeding issues. I guess I have been lucky. But new bolt heads are available! Don't just grab any old AK bolt head and go with it, check your headspace first to be safe.

    Single stack on the left, double stack on the right, note the feed lug on the left for the difference.
