I am in a jam. I want an AR in 7.62x39, but I have heard bad reviews on magazine reliabilty (failure to feed, etc.). One of the solutions I have heard is to only load a GI mag with 2 or 3 rounds. To me this defeats the purpose of using a Hi-Cap mag. Any ideas or opinions would be appreciated.

Why? I mean why a 7.62x39? The reason helps make the decision easier.

It is a sound opinion. There is no better value for your gun bucks than an AK type firearm.

I think you've answered your own question here. Unless of course you want a 2-3 shot AR.

The only reason I have for wanting an AR in 7.62x39 is really simple.....I don't have one. I already have a couple of PolyTech AK's, but I just want the same caliber with the AR. I was just wondering if all of the things I have heard about feeding problems are true? Could I avoid this by using a drum? Or do they make specific 7.62x39 AR15 mags. Again, thanks for the responses and help.
