I think the mags don't work real well.

Smaller mags work best, the long curved mags necessary for higher capacity with x39 round do not work well in ars. I love the x39 round, but an ar is not a good match for it. I would build a 300 blackout before i would run a x39 one.

ar 15 in 762x39

.....why?

A WASR is cheaper and will function reliably with that round. That AR will be a headache and of the three people I know who have them they all wish someone would buy them, but nobody will.

I've got one (DPMS), wouldn't sell it. It works fine with 30 round ASC mags, C-Products mags don't feed well at all. Accuracy I can't really say because I shoot with irons, 12" steel at 200 yards is no problem but I can do that with my AK fwiw.

Sorry, forgot to mention that if your looking for a cheap shooter a 5.45x39 is fun on an AR with a Slide Fire stock. machine gun

Has anyone had their hands on the AR platform in 7.62x39 from Rock River Arms, yet? It takes normal AK mags. I've only seen pics of them. I own some Rock River stuff and if this model is the same quality as the other stuff, I'll add one to the collection.

i was doing some looking back in november. seems the mag thing was a issue but there are pretty reliable mags available now. another thing I read is you may want to replace a few parts with modern 1 sales parts. like their firing pin is supposed to be better for the type of ammo you may encounter.

I looked and called around for a month and never saw one locally and barely saw them for sale online. i ended up buying a milled AK. if you are going to be spending over $1200 you might want to look at the milled arsenal rifles. the slr101 i picked up was impressive right from the start. I do still want an AR in x39 but I wouldnt get one that I couldn't change uppers on I dont think. one of the pluses to having an AR platform rifle is that you can swap uppers and do the 22lr conversions.

Has anybody tried to get a barrel maker to handel a group buy for MSGO?

I'd really like to put a 9mm together 1st..
Not really many options for barrels right now or bolts.

Not that I want to wait that long,, but if numbers help get a good barrel at a decent price I'd wait on it..

Just saying!!

Yeah, don't forget this lowly thought of Russian round. Smith & Wesson M&P15. I love mine at .20 cents a shot.

Ain't that the rub. Before "panic" buying it was 13 cents a round.

I had looked at those and couldn't justify the price tag vs performance. I bought my 7.62x39 DPMS upper, complete, for 400 bucks so it was worth trying. If you want 7.62 ballistics and don't mind rolling your own ammo the 300 BLK would be my choice at this point in time.

Thanks for all the help. I ve got a msgo lower coming and was just trying to decide what to do with it . had a few 762 rounds and was wondering if that might be a good thing to do with them. But looks like another 223 is on for now. Thanks again
