    I have a 5.56x45 pistol. Itís way overgassed. I recently bought a 7.62x39 rifle. Itís not overgassed at all. If you do get one thatís overgassed, itís super easy to install a KNS adjustable gas piston to resolve the problem.

    I would like to get some more feedback on the 7.62 Nato model, that looks like a hand full of badness.
    Is the rifle pictured a x39mm, seems to have a curved magazine ?

    One thing I hated was the plastic magwell on the 7.62x39 version, it had a false lip the mag would want to lock into, and looked silly. Mag changes were much easier when this is removed, it just has no place on a rock-n-lock mag gun.

    Otherwise, it is extremely well made and solved all of my ergonomic gripes with the AK. Hope they stick around for awhile. A 5.45 version would be awesome....

    I was out with my 7.62x39 last weekend. Although it throws brass pretty far, the operation is very smooth and the quality of the rifle is perfect. It was my first AK and I don't see the need for another with this rifle in the safe, as I also have a Swiss Arms 553R which is just amazing.

    I'm guessing you removed the plastic magwell?

    What needs to be done, and what exactly do you lose by removing the plastic portion of the receiver? I mean, what purpose did the magwell have in the first place?

    Also, do you know if circle 10 magazines will work with the plastic magwell gone?

    Worked with all mags I tried, removal was simple, you just need to buy a Galil trigger guard as you lose the plastic version.
    Magwell has no purpose on the 7.62x39 as far as I can see.

    Thanks, how much work is it to install the trigger guard? Does it need to be riveted in?
