I did the actual conversion a few years back,. recently grabbed some parts from K-Var and put the retainer and different front sight on there, like yesterday actually. pulled the FSB and GB off, some dremel work and and put it all back together. Not much to look at, I've got one of them spiffy Mag adapters in the mail (someday) from Canis Design, (formerly Texas AK designs).
But it felt god to do something not- AR for a change.
