Well... I had another thread going on what mods a wieger needs to feed 5.56 -- NONE!
with that question answered, its time to pursue another importiant question...
DO Wiegers fit Norinco 84s rifles? Do they work?
I just recieved today a ten-pack of Wiegers from Inter Ordnance and let me tell ya folks... Those mags are sweet as hell! Typical German engineering!
Now I have a 84s in-transit to me from Fla. and I plan on modifying the mag well slightly to fit the Wieger mags ... But I need some confirmation on if the wiegers will work in the Norinco. I would have to say yes since Euro mags work in my 7.62 Norinco.. but thats a guess..
Help a brother out here... anyone care to comment?
As a Norinco 5.56 owner I'm curious too. For sure, fit will be the first obstacle. Reliable feed will be the second. I do know they won't fit without mods. I've seen a Norinco mag made to work in a SAR3 (Ekie?), but never the opposite. I think I'd prefer to modify the mag rather than the rifle but if it's not too much trouble it would be nice to be able to use the Weigers.
Good luck, I'll be watching this thread closely.
and uh, Happy Holidays![<l:D>]
