From what I've read, the AR rifles built for 7.62x39 have all had issues with their magazines (ar mags modified to accept the cartridge).
In the latest issue of AR-15, they discuss a new rifle from RRA called the LAR-47 that has a receiver built specifically use AK mags. The magazine (the paper one
) indicated that it functions pretty well and they would start working on a piston version (the one they have currently is built with a standard DI upper).
The price hasn't made me want one more than an SKS or AK yet though. Still a neat gun.
