I'm gathering parts to build my plum 74 kit. The day I got it, I didn't get a US made gas piston. Can I use a gas piston that is advertised for an AK 47? For some reason, the websites don't mention if it will work on the 74's. Maybe they're assuming that it's common knowlege.

Also, is anyone making US mag followers for the 5.45x39 ? I know HCPookie is working on floorplates, but how about followers?

They are a bit shorter, although most have had no problem using U.S. made '47 pistons. I read a post where DPH was looking to have some made so you might contact him.

Thanks,

I'll check with DPH to see if he is getting 74 length pistons any time soon.

They are not the same length. Having said that? I have three '74 builds with '47 pistons... and they are perfect.
