Then I might as well go ahead and buy Wolf in 223 and get the same price/problems trade-offs with my exisitng AR's

Or is there a piston 5.45mm upper anywhere?

Blue, there is no steel case problem. Thousands and thousands of folks shoot Wolf in their ARs. I even use the old lacquer coated stuff.

Does shilen or Douglas make barrels in that caliber? It would be real slick to stick one on a savage.

I like the idea of a 7.62x39 bolt gun I bet that would be cheap and fun to shoot. Wish I could make one myself haha
