well this much I can say the beryls are much narrower than the Wiegers in the front top
the beryls are 7.05.5 to 706
the romanian 10rds I have are the same as the wieger 8.06
the ar -15 mags are the same as they fit in renegades adapter in wieger style trunnions
what front dimensions I don't have are the yugo and galil, this will tell whether thay work in narrow inside trunnion and the wider weiger trunnions
to the genral membership
so if you have yugo & galil 223 mags, please measure them with a caliper( the area that locks into the trunnion)
In my fitment experiences with 5.56 mags/AK variants.
Yugo M85/90/95 mags are AKM pattern and .850" at the front area.
Yugo M85/90/95 - will accept and cycle Weigers, Chinese, Romanian and Bulgarian waffle (tight) mags.
Chinese type 84- will not accept Weiger or Romanian or Yugo or Bulgarian
Romanian Md97- will not accept Chinese, or Yugo or Bulgarian
Modifications aside of course.
Thanks for the info. I am still scouring the web for deals on norinco mags first and foremost.
the Norinco mags are for sale almost everyday in the equiptment exchange on ar-15.com under ak parts, if you see them and they are high wait a day they will be offered by others
using a Bulgy trunnion for 223 conversion will not use wieger or romanian or renegadesbucks adapter with ar-15 mags

Are these magazines specific to the Norinco model or just. 223 that fit AK receivers? There have been 3-4 30rnd .223 AK magazines hanging on the rack at my local Dunhams(big sporting goods chain in the northeast similar to Dicks) for months. I think they are $20-25?
Worth checking out depending where you live or I would be more than happy to help out with a fellow enthusiast if they are compatible.
Welcome to the forum, jim. Yeah, the Chinese norinco uses a specific mag that is no longer allowed to be imported. While some others can be made to work, like the Weiger, the norinco is really the one to use. Even the Chinese .223 Polytech brand wont fit. So its off to the races to find mags for this thing. Its really a shame, 'cause this things a real shooter.
Thanks Sprat. I just get a bad taste in my mouth when I go over there. But I may give them a chance.

Thanks guys, I need to get a few misc parts before I start my build.
They are plastic, can't remember 100% but I believe they are Magpulls.
