If you'd like them, I still have some used ones from my Romak (Century) before I hogged out the well to use standard magazines. PM me if you want 'em for a couple of bucks each plus flat rate shipping.

For someone who isn't handy with tools and owns a WASR, it's the only option. Single stack mags do tend to feed more reliably, but that's not dependent on firearms or caliber.

The reason why I asked is b/c I just got my Wasr (single stack). I am very "handy" with tools, but am new to AK's, so I have no idea as to where to start. How hard of a job is it to make my Wasr except double stack mags? Is it as simple as me bringing the dremel out and going to work, or is it something that a gunsmith should do?

Depends on the WASR. Some are VERY simple and some would require modifing the front trunion. What part of the state are you in? I'm sure someone local to you could help you.

My WASR-10 was over milled in the mag well. So I run plastic type mags, or wrap my steel mags once with electrical tape and that fixed the wobble problem.

On the steel mags I put a tac-weld on the magazine's notch that fits past the magazine latch. This was done to help the rounds feed at a more flat angle instead of miss feeding like they were.

Wouldn't it be easier to install a new latch? That's where I do adjustments. I want to be able to use mags across firearms.
