Probably not the best idea. 5.45 AR mags are not known for their quality or price. Nothing wrong with AK-74 mags. Just IMO
which 5.45 ar mags are you talking about, specifically. the c products i have heard mixed reviews on. the asc 5.45 mags seem to be superior from what i have read. i like the 5.45 bulgarialn circle 10 and 21 mags the best but they are ridiculously priced now and difficult to get. i believe i saw them for 35 dollars new on one site. if the asc 5.45 ar mags are decent they are between 15 and 20 bucks depending on where you get them and they are readily available. i am still on the fence about what an adapter will do to my rifle as far as durability and reliability. i have yet to read a post from someone with an ar adapter of any kind that has ran thousands of rounds through there gun so i don't think anyone really knows how durable the trunion on a converted gun is after all the metal removal. i shoot a lot so durability is no 1 to me.
hey sgt. i live in nc to maybe we can shoot together sometime.
