I just bought a Norinco 84S in 5.56 X 45. I am not an AK guy. This is my first one.

The question is this... I was told the 84S is just an 56S rebarrelled... not an AK-74, but an AK-47.

Which mags fit this? Is there a good online source?

Also, I's like to get a bayonet for it. Will a 47 or 74 bayonet work on this?

Sorry for all the questions. ARs are my game. Although, I could grow to really like the AK family.

Will East German mags that work in a SAR3 work in a Norinco? Does anyone know?

Good buy! I've never heard that the Type 84's were fitted w/ rebarrelled Type 56 bbl's, could be true and I wouldn't doubt it.

As for a bayonet search around for a Chinese Type 2 bayonet as it would make an excellent addition to your rifle.

The Type 84 will NOT accept the East German or Bulgarian 223/556 mags, and as far as I know the Type 84 rifles will ONLY accept Type 84 mags. CDNN has Type 84 mags I believe.

CDNN is out of stock on them.

Thanks for the tips on the bayonet.

I wasn't aware that CDNN was out of stock, You may want to try gunbroker, or the for sale forums on various boards.
