    Well let me know if I can help. The newer cameras are supposed to really be "plug and play". At most, you may need to install something from the disk that came with it, but normally you shouldn't because Windows should have everything you need.

    I'm going to grind some tabs to affix to the magazine, then I plan to braze them to the mag itself. Tapco has G3 mags "rusty" for $0.75 each!!!! They are alloy mags. Tapco also has "rusty" steel mags for $3 each, and a 50-pack box for $50. I figure I'll pick up enough to have a "carry load" of 10 mags. That will two mag pouches full and a few extra.

    Question about alloy G3 mags - those are aluminum, correct? How successful can I expect to be when using a MAPP torch to braze a steel lug onto the aluminum mag body? Should I be worried about burning the aluminum or will the "normal" brazing rod (the thin bronze ones - not the thick silver solder ones) be adequate without damaging the mag???

    OR should I go with the steel ones and sell off the rest? If I get all that to work, I could be convinced to do the remaining 40 steel mags for others... or am I being too paranoid about the ability of the MAPP torch to burn the thick aluminum magazine?

    You can do a good job with soft solder - just get everything nice and shiny clean!

    I really want to actually see how in the hell you guys are fitting and HK mag into an AK?

    If anyone noticed above I had the most common .308 mags for a comparo and found the M14 is a super fit. It fits into the trunion like a factory fit and is the right height to feed rounds. Next would be a modified FAL, if I had to go that route.

    Yes, you will have to put a knob or solder a peice of steel to make a catch to fit in the trunion. Since the receiver will be a home build you can make the magwell to fit the shape of the M14 mag and I bet the catch on the M14 mag will fit the t-guard. It comes within 1mm of fitting the mag release on my Saiga .308.

    Anyway... Just my thoughts and I am very anxious to see how an HK mag will work too, so I can eat crow I still think those mags are ugly though.

    Well I'm about to buy 50 of them so I'll have plenty to show off BUT if it doesn't work, then you can pass that crow my way!

    WELL LOOKIE THERE - Tapco must be surfing these threads because suddenly their "throw away" mags doubled in price from $0.75 to $1.50

    Maybe I'll just buy a dozen then. The idea of doing this on the cheap is the only reason I'm doing it. I could buy *NEW* M14 mags and have 3 extra US compliance parts instead of this used crappy German stuff. And for that price, I'll just buy from Cope's - Good to Excellent condition G3 mags are a bit cheaper even!

    Trust me! I am curious! And I will eat crow!

    Yes, I am sure it's not just us that has driven the price up. I bet they are selling the poop out of those mags! I almost got some, but I have like 20? G3 mags now and 1 G3 rifle. I figure I got enough! Save my money and buy some other stuff I need.

    There are a few 308 AK's.Most only have two locking lugs.Some are larger than others.Even the 5.45 AK has larger lugs than 7.62x39.There are Yugo M77,308 Galil.308 Valmet and the Vepr/Saiga.The newer Russian models have three lugs because of the more recent strict European pressure testing.The Russian 308's originally had two lugs but failed the European pressure tests.They were suppose to have work fine with standard ammo though.The Russians went with three lugs to pass the pressure tests so the rifles could be sold in Europe.

Im still trying to decide on what kit to do the 308 in. the milled would be easyer to get a G3 mag into since it does not have a riviet in the way. if the M77 was made in a milled reciever I would not worry about it.
    The M76 is a milled receiver in 8mm Mauser the M77 is a stamped receiver in 308 Winchester.The M76 has a longer receiver and bigger carrier.The M77 has a standard length receiver and carrier.
