Default 7.62x39 AR-15 magazine question (mini30)

has any one tried to modify a 20 round mini 30 mag to work with a standard ar lower

a company called ram-line use to make .223 magazines that fit both the ar-15 and mini 14

so it seems this may be the fix for magazine issues

And an AR needs a straightened top on the mag to fit in the mag well and get the feed lips up high enough to feed.
