Robarms, you should make a conversion kit in this caliber. Surplus ammo in this caliber are lower than the others and your sure to win more customers. Id buy it.

I would, too. But they still need magazines for the 7.62x39 conversion. Until that, I don't believe we'll see a 5.45mm conversion.

Also, how much longer it remains relatively cheap is debatable. This last weekend at Knob, 5.45 was running $150 to $180 a case. Not pretty. Beats the hell out of .223, but not too long ago it was $100 a case. The writing is on the wall: it's all about the reloading.

I would be all over this conversion as well... 5.45 may be goin up a bit, but it's still the cheapest game in town.

and sloan, 150-180 at knob isn't exactly an accurate picture of the market... aim surpluse has wasp for 120/1080 right now...

Yup, count me in also. But I do need to get my loading gear set up.

Or use Ballistol. It's great on corrosively primed guns, or even blackpowder residue.

I've been using it on my FN49s. Great stuff and a damned sight better than using old WW2 vintage GI bore cleaner. That stuff is nasty.

More than just the barrel, the gas assembly as well as the piston, rod, etc. would need to be squirted I'd think.

Probably the bolt and firing pin too as the primers are usually corrosive.

A lot more cleaning than a few bucks saved on ammo is worth to me. I'd rather have the 7.62x39 conversion and use it will crappy Russian, non-corrosive Wolf ammo.

Just my thoughts though.
