A lot of makers have been converting their wares to use AK mags, PTR and Sig just off the top of my head.

7.62x39 is not a good caliber in an AR, that caliber case has a fairly large taper to it to aid functioning and feeding in the AK, but the bolt design in an AR is a bit weak for that taper, it puts a lot of strain on the bolt lugs. Getting a 30 cal bullet in an AR with less stress on the bolt lugs was one of the design parameters for the 300 Blackout.

I don't know how true it is, but I've heard that an AK-74 mag can easily be made to work in an AR. It hasn't been explained to me what exactly you're supposed to do to make it work, but that it can be done. Anyone else heard that and know what the trick is supposed to be?

Meny moons ago there was an AR47 http://ar-47.com/

If a ban is passed similar to the old grandfathering preban mags, there are a lot more AK mags out there and cheap. It would take off.

During the 94 ban ak mags were still imported and cost $6.50ea

Yeah, corrosive ammo is no big deal in any AR. You just have to do a little more work after shooting, which I don't mind. I love me some 7n6 ammo, especially when it is feeding an AR.

AK mags are tits.

However, why would I want an AR in 7.62, that's the question!
It's not like I'm saving on ammo, or gaining increased availability...

If you've already got a shitload of 7.62X39, just buy an AK and deal with shitty sights and ergos.

If you're starting from zero, get an AR in .300BLK.

Solution in search of a problem.

ETA: Is that the mag release I see INSIDE the trigger guard? Make that a not-so-hot-solution to a nonexistent problem.

Well, almost all surplus 7.62x39 is steel core and non importable...


But the cheap commercial Russian 7.62x39 is not exactly clean burning either...

Maybe it needs a piston.....

No I fucking hate teh way you insert and eject AK mags.

And my Lancer AWMs are amazing. I have NEVER had magazine issues with my AR, but I have had AK mags get stuck, and then have to dremel them to get them to fit right.
