    ordered a upper for my DPMS. What would I have to do with my existing mags to make them work with this upper? I thought changing the follower maybe? Help appreciated.

    What type of mags are you using? Modifying 5.56 mags is not really an option for any with a higher capacity than 5-10 rounds. Even then the geopmetry of the feed lips is probably wrong.

    They make 7.62x39 specific mags for ARs. Don't know of reliable ones to recommend as far as high caps go.

    I have some 20rd polymer, 20 round brownells, and the 30 rounders that came with the rifle. Didn't know, as I am fairly new to the AR platform of rifles.
