    How bout a 5.45 upper to run w/a RLL? Got a few ques, Do they use the same bolt and carrier as 5.56? How bout mags, I have heard they work in GI mags but not that good. Are there special mags for5.45? How bout Pmags? Model 1 has 11.5 uppers w/a 1;8 twist anyone have exp w/them? With surplus ammo how would you say they compare(accuracy wise) to a 11.5 5.56 w/ 1;7 twist? What about that corosive residue in the gas tube, wont it be a ***** to get out? I shooy it in my AKs but I can put my finger in that gas tube. How bad you rekon the laquer coated surplus ammo will gum up a AR blastin full auto?

    ANY INFO IS VERY MUCH APP! ALSO IF YOU GOT GOOD SORCE FOR PARTS,MAGS ECT THROW ME A BONE. THANKS!!!!

    1/ Same carrier, special bolt 2/ Don't bother w/5.56 mags, get some CProducts 5.45 mags from 44 mag sales (around $15.00 each) 3/ Great uppers, I have a 20" 4/ My 20" 5.45x39 1 in 8 shoots the same as my 20" 5.56 w/1 in 9 twist 5/ Don't worry about the gas tube, if it ever goes bad - just change it out! 6/ laquer don't seem to bother the AKs in full auto, should'nt bother the AR :)

    Not to mention, unless you have some very old Wolf ammo still around, they don't use lacquer to coat their rounds anymore. It's all polymer coated now.

    My bad. I don't shoot surplus anymore, unless it is through one of my older AK's or SKS's. No comment on shooting it full auto through anything.
