    So, someone wanted to sell me their Arsenal SLR-101. I really wasn't interested, as I don't need another AK. I made a recockulous fuck-off offer though (why not?), and the guy actually accepted. He must have been crazy hurting for money, but whatev right?

    Well, I knew it was a ban era-gun, which is even more teh ghey. Figured I'd keep it around to convert, or maybe flip it for some $$. Ended up showing my buddy the gun, and let him borrow it as he needed another AK to shoot over the weekend. I get a call last night asking me wtf was wrong with the thing?

    Him: Dude, this gun is a piece of shit.
    Me: Huh? No, your probably just retarded. What's the problem?
    Him: It won't take clips (yes i know, he's a little backwoods)
    Me: *Sigh* well leave it the fuck alone, and don't touch it (afraid he would try and "make" it fit, which would be bad)

    So I write it off as him probably trying to stick a FAL mag in it or something equally dumb, and forget about it. He brought it back, and lo and behold, shit won't fit. Not even close.

    FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU.... I bought a single stack AK:wtc::greddy: No wonder the dude let it go so cheap. I didn't even know the fucking things came like that?

    Anyways, laugh at my misfortune, and tell me what I should do. I can't find dick about single stack 101's. Can I just open up the magwell like any other AK and be good? Is the bullet guide/bolt/etc the same? Should I just say fuck it and sell it like is? I have absolutely zero use for the gun as it sits, though if I can convert it without much drama I might just hold onto it.

    Just dremel out the mag well and you should be good to go. I'm pretty sure the feed ramp is gtg as well.

    Its not hard at all to expand the magwell with a dremel.

    The Arsenal AKs are actually pretty nice.

    Opening up the magwell likely won't be a problem. I might actually use a mill, cause I don't wanna fuck up a Arsenal. If it was a shitty WASR or something I'd go at it, but milled receivers aren't exactly falling from the skies these days.

    Anyone privvy to a set of blueprints/dimensions/etc? Or should I just round up a bunch of mags and keep going until they all fit (hopefully tightly)?

    doing a quick google search sounds like you just mill the receiver to accept standard mags.

    That's kinda what I figured... Have to talk to some peeps and see who's got a mill to do it with.


    I got it cheap cheap cheap.

    Century has been paying retarded people to dremel out single stacks for years, your milling is going to make it seem like a million bucks compared to those :big grin:

    it's not hard to make a dremel job look good. Just use a mag to make a template and use that to get nice straight lines. It'll probably end up 100x better than cemturie's hack jobs. Unless you can use a mill for free that is.

    For the record, Keesh is the shit ;)

    I got free access to a badass shop to cut with, it's just that it's 3 hours away, and I'm really busy at the moment. This looks simple though, so I might just mail it down there and get my bud to do it for me.

    That would likely not be advisable as I think you are only legally allowed to ship a firearm to yourself or and FFL holder including gunsmiths.

    As long as FTF sales are legal in your state, or there are no statues preventing shipping firearms, you are allowed to ship firearms to anyone who is able to own a firearm within your state.

    Why? It's no different than a face to face sale between two state residents.
