    Anybody ever seen anything like this? I heard of people making 5.45 barrels but not a full rifle.

    The big issue I've heard is the straight section of magazine required due to the lower receiver. This causes unreliable feeding. Take this with a grain of salt, it was 2nd, or 4th? hand info, but it makes sense.

    Because the shape of the 7.62 round, when stacked up they tend to curve more than .223. So when you contain the first 5-10 rounds from bending, gaps start showing up in the magazine and cause issues.
    that make sense?

    That wasn't what I meant :o

    I was asking why would anyone want that. What advantage would it have over an AK?

    Sorry for the confusion.
