I know it isn't the top of the line but for $150 I figured it'd be a nice toy to add to my gun collection.  How do I post pics now?

Are there any other modifications to the design of the low-cap rifle other than the reduced magwell?

Could one remove the low-cap receiver from this rifle, and install an Armory one, and essentially look at the original rifle as a $150 parts kit with US parts already included?

Being this is my first AK I have no clue other than it's a low cap WASR10.  I was thinking of using a dremel to widen the mag well.  But on the other hand, it isn't too bad as a single stack.  The guy at the store said he had some 30 rounders laying around he would sell for 5 bucks a pop.  I'm not so sure I believe it.  What's the supply of single stack mags like?  Hard to come by?  What capacity?

slow and easy with the dreimel,.. get some files  and a hi-cap mag and that should be all you need

Be warned...I think it's some of the Romy single stacks that have a different front trunion, meaning that you have to swap trunions, and then open the receiver if you want to use double stack mags. The highest capacity I've ever heard of for a single stack mag is 10. There are a couple retailers online who sell them for anywhere from $8-12 each for 10rnds; I don't remember who, sorry.  I actually have 4 of them that came with a single stack Maadi I converted. Finish leaves something do be desired, but they are all fully functional. IM me if you're interested.
