    I like that but hoping to get similar result but using actual ak47 mags.

    Well windham is one of the few who designed a mag an BCG for the 762 AR. I like is I can easily put a 556/223 or 300BO upper on same lower.
    No mods to mag well just a specific mag.

    The AK AR don't do it for me at all. Mags are a vital component of a semi, and those mags and bolts are heavily compromised. The AK AR I got was a 300blk.

    Not true.
    Windham redesigned the bcg and the mags to work properly in the platform. Unlike the others who modified the 556/223 bcg and mags.

    no doubt that a better version could be made and has been made, but something with a properly sized bolt and uses mags that actually were designed around the cartridge is very pricey and has lost much of the commonality with the AR platform.

    Under a grand and I can run a 300bo or 556/223 upper on the same lower.
    The mgs were designed around the 762 cartridge.Where is the in-commonality of which you speak. All AR accesories will bolt right to it if ya want to be tacticool as well.
