I have been getting quite a few PMs about how to fix the magazine on an AK style receiver, so I am going to post some more pictures and try to explain the way to do it. It is very easy and should only take five minutes to complete.

First you will need to remove a small section of the trigger guard so that the bolt can pass through, like I did here.

The way this works is that you slide the nut under the trigger guard and prop it into position using some skinny tool. Once it is in position you thread the bolt into the nut. Keep threading the nut until the bolt is pushing against the other side of the mag release. This will completely stop the mag release form moving. It should look like this.

I used a ¼-20 x ½ Allen screw and a ¼-20 square nut. It cost a total of 59 cents at my hardware store.

I used an Allen screw that has finger grooves so you can tighten it most of the way with your fingers, but it is very important that you use an Allen wrench to tighten it to the point where it can not be removed with your fingers. AGAIN MAKE SURE IT CAN NOT BE REMOVED WITH YOUR FINGERS, or anyone’s fingers for that matter.

Thanks for the pictures. I saw your earlier post on it, sans pictures, and was having troubles visualizing it - I get to see my parts kits on Monday. :)

Thanks for the pics and the details on the hardware.
Looks like a pretty good option to comply with the law.

i just bought an AK lower, where would be a good place to get a "high" quality barrel etc. and if i waited to build the AK, is it likely that it will be placed on the list and i could use removable mags?

Just get a good Romanian parts kit, I've heard most of them have good barrels. You could also build it sb23 compliant. It doesn't necessarily need to have fixed mag (just you know, don't add a flashhider, folding stock or pistol grip.)

yea (but who wants to do that!;) ) wat kind of grip would it have with no pistol grip anyways? im just hopin it gets on the list so that i can have all of the "evil" features that make it an AK in the first place
