Most likely??, That will be a neat rifle with the AR-47 lower and 5.45 upper...One question though...How well do you think the aluminum lower will hold up to the steel mag lips?

No worries with AK-74 mags... most of the ones in circulation are either E. German bakelites, or Bulgarian polymers. No exposed steel lips...

The part on the front of the mag that lock in the trunion is steel, this is what I was refering to?

Never seen an ar47 lower in person, and curious if there is enough material to allow for the slightly longer 74 mags in the well.
Now if you find a properly re-sized bolt source for the 7.62x39 round in an ar, instead of an opened face waiting for lugs to eventually break, you can make some good friends fast.
An ak caliber ar has been on my list for a while now, good luck!

Think about it a 5.45 weapon in an AR package. The trail you leave behind doesn't spell NATO rounds. Just my thoughts.

And there you have it!

A weapon system that operators would be intimately familiar with, firing a round that even with piles of spent casings laying around, still gives Uncle Sugar plausible deniability.
