Haven't seen single stack mags for sale in a while, how about widening the mag well to accept regular AK mags?

this, ^^^^^ it takes a little effort but is doable. i saw one at a gunshow that a guy had done and he showed me where to file away. after you get the the magwell opened (either trace the limits of a double stack on top or measure it out...drawing is easier and wont change the finished product) there are two metal tabs inside that act as the dimples in most AK style rifles made today. they're alot stronger than the other metal of the body and they'll need to be filed carefully because if you take off too much you'll end up with mag wobble. once you get those filed down to fit you'll want to file off the very front of them at an angle to allow the mag to seat easier (trust me it's worth it). with a dremmel this could all be done in an hour or two, by hand with normal files you're looking at around 10 hours. you could pay a gunsmith to do this for you but they're going to probably charge you around 75 an hour, take their time and you might end up with mag wobble. most of the stories you hear about wasr's being junk and having mag wobble is related to converted single stack wasr's being filed down too much

but if you live behind the lines and cant have high cap mags then i have a 10 rounder im not using anymore that ill sell you for 5 bucks plus shipping if i find the other 2 finve rounders i have somewhere ill sell you both of them for the same deal

IIRC Century Arms still has an old stock of single stack mags for these guns.
