Also what is the deal with these? I got it off a friend who was moving to New York and wanted to sell it. I got it for $150, figured $150 for anything that would reliably shoot a 7.62x39mm bullet was worth it. Oh and he had only shot it once, and I was there and shot it with him:D I have managed to fit a 30 round traditional magazine to it, which works o.k. Is there anything cool to be done with them? Any cool stocks? Is this a reliable firearm? I have put a couple hundred rounds through it, and so far it seems good.

You might have got a standard AK mag to fit,
but you might be still missing a a feed ramp in your front
trunion. Looks like a curved piece that sits rearward of your
chamber,yet foward of your mag.
Then you need to "convert it" to standard AK style.
You will need to add 5 US made parts to be legal with
a pistol grip.
