Thought I might like to slap together an AK in .223rem but I don't know of any kits anywhere. Thought maybe one of you guys might.

Also, any body have a link to 223 mags?

UGH! At that price, i'd be better off to get one of the romys form SOG or century at $330 ready to shoot.

That is about the cheapest you are going to get an AK kit in .223 as of now. That's just how it is. Bulgarian ones at K-VAR when they have them are even going to cost you more and are milled receiver kits. You ask, that is what you get.

It would be cheaper to get a complete rifle. In order of cost WASR-3, Saiga.223, SAR-3, Norinco .223 BWK-92, VEPR, Bulgarian Arsenal SA M-5. There are others that are preban but going to cost more.

5.56 kits are rare birds at best, esspecially stamped gun configs, luckily I own one.

Honestly buy a SAR 3, redo the barrel, bolt, and carrier then your good to go. Throw a sidefolder on it and you have a stamped 5.56.

k-var will have kits...normally...and yes they are about that much or more....i bought a siaga that i found in one dealer....under two hundred....made at ishmas....shoots much better than i expected......not sorry at all....only issue is mags......check the sar 3`s as suggested....atlantic firearms usually can hook you up.....or get a well built arsenal rifle.....best way for 223 ak imo...................... p-s......the k-var kits go fast.....even at that price

Which one is SOG selling. It's listed only as AK-ROM223. I imagine it is a wasr-3

Redo the bolt and carrier?????????? What are you talking about? Is something wrong with SAR 3 bolts and carriers?
