the romy ak I have looks like the mag well was opened up to accept hi cap mags. I bought this rifle at a gun show from a dealer NIB. are the lo cap guns imported ,then opened up for the hi cap mags here? any info would be appreciated.

Single stack AK's are less expensive than ones that accept double stack mags
Dealers often get them and mill out the mag well to mark up their profit margin
It only takes a few minuets to do it then they make an extra $100 or more on the rifle. Also the single stackers are OK for sale in States that do not allow hi cap mags.

You can do a home build for under $200!

I have built a ton of AR's .never even thought about AK's. How difficult is this build?Are there any special tools needed for this ? Any info is appreciated.

a basic shop press and a 24" pair of bolt cutters to make into a rivet crusher
its pretty simple........................
