There's a Romanian AK at the local pawn for $150.  How do I tell if it will take High Cap mags?  Should I just go buy a mag and check to see if it fits before buying it?  I've posted another topic (help me buy my first ak) about buying this gun.  If it doesn't take High Caps it might be worth trying to modify it for $150.  If it takes only low caps I'll more than likely buy a different one as well.

The magwell on the single stack will be noticeably narrower than the double stack.

measure the magazine opening, it's high cap if it's roughly an inch wide.  low cap will be a bit less

for $150 I say go for it....hell all WASRs start narrow

BUT....if it has a quarter-circular cut out on the back of the receiver and a thumbhole stock...don't do it

If it is a pistol grip I say go for it and convert it your self. It is as easy as pie and it will save you probably over $150 that you can spend on a G2 trigger and some nicer furniture for the same price you will pay for the one with the mag well already opend. Just my two cents. Man I would get it my self if I saw one for $150 that was in realy good shape.

I'd get it either way. Even if it's a low-cap you can sell if for more than 150. Field strip it and look for US marked parts, if it's highcap it will have US marked internals. If not, you can cut out the magwell and add US parts for $50 so even then your at $200.
