    Default revamping an AK

    I know that the AK 47 is bassically gas operated and air Cooled, what I was wondering if there a simple way to make this weapon a blowback and bypassing the gas operation, and what I would like to do it convert it to a 45 any suggestions and how much would this change the 922r part count..Doc

    "simple"...LOL!

    There are numerous caliber conversions that have been done to the AK platform, while many are posted on YouTube there are lots of articles/how-to's in the various gun forums around the web.

    ak + caliber + conversion gets over 1,600,000 hits on Google.

    with kits over $500 id recommend looking at other already built 45 options .

    now if you have a mill an lathe you can make your own blow back trunion, bolts etc an use a few AK parts an do OK

    9mm an 7.62x25 are good blow back choices an there are mags an mag wells available . a 5.45 bolt fits these well
