    .223 mags in 7.62x39 ??

    I have read in a few places that guys are using .223 magazines for 7.62x39 in the AR-15. They say only the straight ones work and some need a little modification. Has anyone tried this in an XCR? I am looking for 10 round magazines, but there does not seem to be alot available for the 7.62x39. (I am just assuming the 7.62x39 AR mags will work in the XCR). Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.

    thanks

    I have used Pmags and loaded maybe 5-6 rounds of 7.62x39 and it functions OK. I would recommend just getting C-Products mags.

    Good choice. I tried MANY options when the Colt Uppers, in 7.62x39, first came out....................... simple truth........... the .223 mags DON'T WORK! The CProducts are probably the best but at times they can frustrate you too.
