Any help appreciated on this one. I'd like to know two things: will AK74 magazines fit OK in an AK47 receiver (external dimensions similar)? Will .223 feed from any AK74 magazine or are there special mags for 223 ammo? I'm thinking about building a .223 AR47 and need to know if the AK74 magazines will work. Thanks for any thoughts.

AK47 and AK74 mags are two completely different critters.

As for the 74 mags and 5.56 ammo check into the Robarms Veprs, they use a custom (U.S.) made follower to reliably feed 5.56 from the 5.45x39 mags.

.223 AR47, as in one of the AK mag using lowers with an AR upper? Or AK receiver?
Assuming a basic AK receiver, you need to lengthen the mag well a bit and possibly alter the ejector tab some.
For mags, after buying a 5.45 mag, $6 for each .223 follower, and dremel time to slightly open the feedlips, I feel that you are better off getting the $60 4pack pouch of Weiger mags from Interordnance.
