Mag well seems a bit funky. Or maybe it's not the mag well. The mag it came with locks in crisp, but many others do not. I can get it in the well, the mag just won't lock in and give a "click". I wonder why?..

I've read up a bit on the forums and some have said to file down the mag catch on the rifle...other's say to sand, polish, or dremmel the bottom of the mag lug. What to do, what to do?...

aside from the furniture and the mag that comes with it, anything else really different from the two types? I'm going to remove the furniture on either so I really am trying to figure out if it's worth it to get the FM or just keep the wooden slant back on my wish list. I blame you bastards, by the way, for even having to ask this. If you all just sucked like most forums I would have had my VEPR12 as my only entry into the russian market..... now I want more.

Go with the FM. It already is equipped to take high cap mags. The stock is a bit short (Warsaw length) and the pistol grip isn't anything to write home about, but at least you don't have to screw around with anything...just my two cents..

Try a bunch of different mags. If they all have a problem locking in then file the mag release. Never mod the gun unless you have to.If it's just a few certain mags take a file to bottom rear lug.

I've tried a bunch of different mags. Only a couple lock in and give a positive click. :-(

Sounds like you got your answer. Just take your time.

Maybe the mag release is a hair longer, maybe the hole for mag release is a hair higher making the mag release sit a hair higher....AKs are not Ferrari. Lol. Alot of different tolerances and I'm sure the employees are a little different on different days. Ha haa. Normally, as long as you can get a mag to lock up in an AK it will function flawlessly regardless of mag wobble.

Yeah, that's what I figured. In my Arsenal SAM7R-61, every single mag locks up...never one issue...and I've got tons of different mags.

I would say most AKS are like that. I know people that have had problems with certain mags in Arsenals too.....easy fix! If you have a bunch of AKS it's always a plus if you can get them to take the same mags.
