    I got the mags to go in by just squeezing them in a little, they hold the rounds better but when the loaded mag is placed in the receiver the bolt hangs on the round and will not pull all the way back to pick up a round.

    Yes, a hesse build, i have a 223 ak47 with a hesse 7.62x39 receiver, receiver welded to the trunion, trunion and site welded to the barrel, rear trunion riveted in wrong, upper rails not in trunion grooves, lower rear corner of receiver cracked, and gun missfires about 1 in three rounds.
    WOW that's scary sounding with all that welding, I wouldn't even try to use that.

    I wouldn't even now if that would be worth fixing?
    Can you post some pics of it?

    I'm going to see if I can figure out how to post pictures then I will. Thanks, I feel the same way about shooting it, I'm glad I can say I didn't buy it, I inherited it from an old hunting buddy.

    when I first looked at it I though gee thats the lest of your problems the gas tube is coming out of the barrel ( long day)
    never seen a welded up ak up close, are those screws or weld buttons that is hard to determine, wow its not that hard to rivet and/or screw those welds are ugly but i assume somewhat functional. I would not worry about the rear top rail not fitting its the front that is critical
    get some real euro steel ak mags to see about function they are around, there may still be hope for this puppy
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    I wouldn't convert that. I wouldn't try to get it working either.

    Cut that receiver off and REBUILD IT IN 223!

    Thanks for the help. I amhoping together a 100% receiver and use the parts that are in this one. I'm a little worried about how to put the new receiver on the old trunion. I could just screw it to the old trunion, or take out the barrel and do it right. I did see a front trunion on one of the web sites, maybe that would be better yet.

    copes has galil 223 mags modified to fit ak s wondering if they would work in my 223 that uses polish beryl mags

    your thoughts
    Hmmm I don't have a polish mag in 223 only Bulgy .. does a polish fit in a Bugly ?

    I use weiger mags as is in my varmint gun with a 7.62x39 trunionn.

    on my weiger clone that uses a rommy 223 trunion I had to add a liitle weld to the front lug on the mag to raise them slightly in the gun .

    I have no idea what copes modes are Interesting . Id say buy one an try it if there cheap worst case sell it un gun broker Id like to what is modified .
