    hello world,
    Discussion on the subject led me to start a "Lee-Enfield 5.45x39 build".
    Peter"s comments drove me there.

    Sorry for my (non-native) English and for not posting my build here at first.

    Great pics. That gives us lots of food for thought about the conversions we'd have to do here. Appears you've built a whole new host mag body...

    mag détail pics

    Here are more pics of my homebuilt 5.45x39 mag.
    It hold five rounds.
    Follower does not tilt.
    Except the spring which is a section of used AR15 mag spring the whole thing is scratch built from scrap metal. (lot of filing, sheet metal folded and soft soldered)
    You will notice that my cheap chinese drill press is unable to drill straight.
