I have an extra AR lower I would like to put a different caliber upper on, I have ARs in 5.56 and several rifles in 7.62x39.
I am not really interested in any of the other new calibers, 6.8 and such.
I would like an upper in 7.62x39.
Last time I did any searching for one of these it seemed that no one was making a reliable upper in 7.62x39 that could handle steel cased ammo, anything new out there?

The upper was never the issue, it was the magazines that were the problem. The 7.62x39 AR mags have come a long way.

Well, theres the PWS MK 114 in 7.62x39 and for magazines other than C Products, Bushmaster makes some as well. I may end getting this combo sometime in the future.

C Products is not in business anymore. Anyone know where to get reasonably priced AR 7.62x39 Mags?
Issue with these uppers are the non-firing of the Russian ammo. I was able to soave it with Model 1 firing pin and a harder hammer spring. Shoots the steel case ammo Berdan primers with no problems anymore.

seesm just built an upper for my nephew that was A+. 7.62 uppers are typically finicky, but his build worked perfectly from the get go. talk to him if your interested in a 7.62x39 caliber upper.

I had PWS MK107 7.62x39 and I had no issues at all, play around modification I shoot almost 5k rounds already with yugo:) that is why I don't want to see my PWS again coz it make me use her again in the range(everyday) I love her so much...:D:gunsmilie::drool5:
