I can get a ak74 at this point but I cannot find a place that sells non steel 5.45x39 and I hear most places won't let me shoot that. An an ak101 would be great for me because it's easy to find brass ammo for it, it shoot the 5.56x45 .

Converting a Saiga would be one option.

How much of an exact copy of the AK 101 do you want?
If you want the most realistic clone, start with a mag well "dimpled" .223 Saiga and find a folding AK 101 stock, trunnion, and front pin/retainer hardware. Then ship it off to Matt Yeamans (aka turbothis) in OR to clone up a 101 for you. The other option is for out of Staters only.....the Bulgarian Arsenal SLR-106.

If you're not a Kalshnikov purist and just want something that looks like an AK-101 for the range, find a used fixed stock Romanian SAR3 and put a Romy AIM-74 front site and brake on there.

I could not a Romanian sar 3. How much would converted the saiga cost? How realstic would it be. Or better yet anyone know a place around the San ferenando valley, northridge, or near magic mountain that allows steel cased ammo?

If you read 922R you'll see that only MANUFACTURING is illegal. Not possession or transfer. So unless you're physically building the rifle in a non-compliant manner, any one you find is fine.

Section 922 Paragraph R states:
"It shall be unlawful for any person to assemble from imported parts any semiautomatic rifle or any shotgun which is identical to any rifle or shotgun prohibited from importation under section 925(d)(3) of this chapter as not being particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes except that this subsection shall not apply to--
(1) the assembly of any such rifle or shotgun for sale or distribution by a licensed manufacturer to the United States or any department or agency thereof or to any State or any department, agency, or political subdivision thereof; or
(2) the assembly of any such rifle or shotgun for the purposes of testing or experimentation authorized by the Attorney General. "
