We could take money-savings and mag-wobble a step further....
Century sells/used to sell small numbers of their WASRs that are fully 922'd for compliancy with USA pistol grip, Tapco G2 trigger group, even Tapco piston - but - as single-stack low-caps. They did this for both WASR10s in 7.62x39 and WASR2s in 5.45x39.
I guess they do this for reasons of selling single-stack WASRs to ban-state wholesalers where hi-cap mags are forbidden.
Anyway, the Dunham's Sporting Goods chainstores here in the NE and MidWest tend to distribute these out to their stores.
Here in PA you might find a Dunhams selling these low-cap WASRs side by side with hi-cap WASRs - but for a lot less money
- which makes no sense as PA allows hi-cap rifles!! (Dunhams distribution is wacky like that; one store may have a huge rifle selection while another has just a few...)
Sooo, since these low-cap WASRs are cheaper; if you have a Dremel and workspace where you can make a big mess; you can open up the mag-well yourself to reduce mag-wobble and save decent money at the same time.
Take it slow, test-fit the mags often (and try a couple different types; steel and Bulgy polymer for example) and clean the gun when done. Maybe plug the chamber end with a tight-fitting rag before you start as this makes a monster mess of ground metal.
