I tried posting this question on the barrels, etc. forum with no luck, so I moved it here.

I realize that a barrel and bolt set up for 7.62x39 are required, but what else is needed?
Would the A2 buffer be OK? As far as magazines go, would a different follower be needed, or an entirely different magazine?
Thanks, HarryD

i think you can use a .223 mag but only load 4-5 rounds of the 7.62 there are mags that are specifically for the 7.62, the usa mags work the best. i have gathered this info off this site. good luck,hope this helps

Actually you can use 6-8rds on a Colt or Adventureline 20rd mag. These are better to use because the follower will tilt to a certain extent. Not so with a 30 rounder especially with a green follower. YMMV with each mag. [b]HarryD[/b], you are good to go on the A2 buffer. I have a Colt M4 stock with the "H" buffer on my Colt 7.62x39 preban and it functions flawlessly.

Thanks guys, I knew that someone had to have the info on this set-up. Very interesting in the magazines. I might be able to use some of my 20s, but all of my 30s have been updated w/ green followers (I saved the black ones, so I might try to re-fit a few). Also interesting on the USA 7.62x39 magazines to work well, as they don't have a good reputation in 5.56/.223!

Yup, that was just about the "only" mag that USA Magazines made that was worth buying.
