Considering a 7.62x39 DPMS upper for the collection. How well does this combo work? Feed, Function, Accuracy ETC.....

TIA

I did some research 2 years ago and never read of issues with the ammo running but it was difficult to get after market mags. Unless you bought a lower that specifically accepted AK47 mags and drums which would be easier. Atlantic Firearms carries the AR47 which does just that. This is NO endorsement of Atlantic Firearms but for FYI.

I shoot Colt 1 in 12 twist CR 6850 I think it is. The rifle is accurate to under 1 MOA with selected handloads and will shoot 155 Sierra Palma MK's at over 2200 ft/secs. Normal 123/125 grain loads are good to 2400 ft/secs. The catch is that magazines beyond about 10 rounds are not as yet reliable. There are many threads on this issue and there is some hope of improvement as well. As a great generalization this is a great combination. The best short range cartridge and the best weapons platform. It is however still a marriage made in hell.

USA made what are refered to as "Franken" mags a few years back. The top half was M16, the bottom half was AK47. There have been conflicting reports as there reliability. I've used the 20rd Franken mags and never had an issue. They are hard to come by and are not cheap.

Least expensive barrel I've found was Del-Ton.

Welcome to the 2007 Deja-Vu revolving shipment delay. Don't hold your breath for them.

I run DPMS frankenmags on one Colt and one DPMS upper platform with good results. Find mags first, or wait for mags to be proven.
