Those who are looking for an answer to the question «Will 6.8spc mags work for 7.62x39 ar?» often ask the following questions:

🔬 Will ar mags work in a mini 14?

Can a Ruger Mini 14 use AR-15 magazines? No. The Mini-14 was introduced before AR-15’s were as popular for civilian use, so designing them to accept AR magazines would have been, at the time, pointless, if even considered. And, in spite of requests by thousands, Ruger will probably never redesign the gun to accept AR magazines.

🔬 Will ar mags work in an aics receiver?

In each of the following mags there are 3 rounds loaded. These are the .308 mags. The AE and AICS mags are 5 rounders to be fair and the AW mag is the only one offered, a 10 rounder. As stated in a previous thread, the AW is a stagered mag that feeds from both sides. The AICS mag is in fact staggered, not much, and feeds from the center.

🔬 Will standard ar mags work with 450 bushmaster?

Well, for starters, the.450 BM won’t work in a PMAG due to the central rib that runs down the inside of the magazine body. In my research on this topic I found that there were some people that...

Getting The 7.62X39 To Work In An AR-15 Once assembled, I ran to the range, excited to function test the build. Testing centered around the inexpensive ammo, with a couple steel cased Wolf and Cabelas Herter’s 7.62×39 rounds using Magpul Pmags and some C-product 6.8 SPC mags, which some had noted would work just fine if used with just a few rounds.

No, the 7.62x39 requires 7.62x39 mags, the 5.45x39 use 5.45 mags, the 6.8 needs 6.8 mags. In general most cartridges require a special mag except the 6mmx45 or other cartridges based on the .223/5.56

6.8 has much less case taper, allowing it to feed better from mags that are less curved (important if the weapon (AR or ACR, for example) has a magwell that is relatively long and straight. With a heavier bullet, x39 will have slightly less wind drift than 6.8. The only place where 7.62 handily beats 6.8 is in price.

In fairness, a 6.8SPC will do everything that the 7.62x39 AR will, trading the ability to shoot cheap Russian ammo (assuming that the 7.62x39 AR is set up for that) for a round that is better suited to the mag well of the AR15

AK Mags Won’t Fit AR A lot of people vying for this new caliber may get a cheeky smile on their faces, thinking about using standard AK mags in their 7.62x39 AR build. That’s pretty obvious for anybody to think. But I hate to

I use the Midway AR-stoner 6.8 mags got a mixture of them in 10, 15 & 25 rounders, they have always work great in all my 6.8's Reactions: maxhush and 1010 Save Share Reply 1010 · Infidel Joined Mar 6, 2012 · 4,321 Posts #5 ...

The fact that 7.62x39 mags for AR's work at all is a miracle of technology. That doesn't make it a great caliber to use - just sticking to 5.56 will get better feeding and reliability without all the special parts. For a general all around, all purpose shooter, one that can be hunted with, the 6.8 is a good choice.

Will 6.5 creedmoor fit ar 10 mags?

It depends on the receiver set/magazine combination. If the magazine catch slot is located differently to the bore line, you can have problems with magazines that have thicker feed lips (polymer). There is no standard 6.5 Creedmoor AR10, nor is there a standard.308 or 7.62 NATO AR10, so all bets are off when it comes to magazine compatibility.

Will ak mags fit an ar 15?

Not as a replacement for a 5.56 AR, and not as a replacement for an AK, but just as something different to have. The main thing keeping me from getting a 7.62x39 AR in the past has been the magazine situation, an AK mag AR lower would solve that for me. Make it so it'll take 5.45 AK mags too and I think it'll be an even bigger hit.

Will my ar lower take ak mags?

A bunch of years ago, a bunch of us were trying to build 5.45x39 AR uppers, and Marty at Teppo Jutsu built one for himself and one for me, on the old Special Weapons AK-47 style lowers. To open the upper enough for the AK74 mags to seat all the way up, he had to use the DPMS heavy receiver with thicker walls.

Will my ar lower takes ak mags?

John. Posted: 1/27/2017 5:49:27 PM EDT. From what I understand, a standard AR upper will not accommodate the width of an AK mag, so you will need a proprietary upper to work with a lower that uses the AK mags. As far as the bolt goes, I don't think a standard carrier will work with AK mags.

Will standard ar mags fit 50 beowulf?

You do not need to change the feed lips or the follower on a standard 5.56/.223 magazine, you just need to bevel the front lip at about 45 degrees (the exact angle doesn’t seem to be a big deal) so the giant .50 Beowulf bullet goes up and, this is the key part, the leading lip of the brass case hits the little ramp and goes up it vs. hanging. In this next photo – see how the lip of the case will catch?
