    I'd get some sheet steel and build it up to the thickness you're shooting for on the receiver, and practice spot welding those sheets.

    If you look at the pictures hcpookie provided, the factory RPK shims are made from bent metal - doubled over where the shim is needed yet a single thickness where spot-welded. That's spot welding has a maximum thickness, that varies by design of each spot welding machine, and works best on relatively thin sheets of steel, no more than TWO sheets thick.

    I'd go with JB weld to make sure they work, and also try a Yugo mag, all my yugos are thicker than normal, as well as BG waffles.

    Once the JB holds up and it works, then I'd consider welding it.
