    Default Scrapped AR Lower Receicer

    Don't know if anyone might have something in the scrap pile...

    Anyone happen to have a junked lower receiver, de-milled or suitable to de-mil? I am looking for a functional magwell to use on a Franken-AK project. Can be aluminum or composite.

    Maybe a lower end stripped blemished one could be a good option,,,,if you can't find one. New and not beat up, and strength isn't an issue in that area, just saying,,, there not that much now. And possibly could save you head aches on the build sense anything scrapped is going to be pretty ragged, possibly causing you other problems. just saying

    Possibly even contact some of the manufactures and maybe they could help out too ,,,, with something that has some other issue than the mag well that will be otherwise scrapped,, never know. Possibly contact Will @ Red Jacket,, he might be a good resource too,,with all his connections. Never know unless you ask???

    This is a good idea wpflgun. I actually tried to fab my own, but ran into lots of problems with the matazine catch and button. I was gonna do it for my .223 ak-74 build, but now im thinking im gonna do it to my saiga .223!

    I couldn't see the pics, but it sounds like a great build. According to the link, he is using the MSA adapter. I currently have the Renegade Buck adapter on my converted Saiga .223 and it works great, I'm very happy with it.

    What I want to do next is to come up with a permanently modified receiver, not a removable adapter. And I would like to use the standard AR mag release if possible. I am not sure, but I believe it MAY be possible to set back the magwell just slightly so the trunnion might not need modification. No big problem if it does, already done that on my Saiga.

    Would like to use on either a Krink pistol build or an AK-74 .223 build.
