No.,there are very few 5.56 AK's to start with.

Chinese or Arsenal 5.56 converted to 5.45., nope.
WASR or SAR 3., never hear of that.
Beryl converted from 5.56 to 5.45 nope.

On this site many threads on 5,45 Bulgarians converted to 5.56 ., = yes.

The only conversions and maybe a few dozen were the 5.56 RPK's converted to RPK 74's. AFAIK.

5.45 SKS., hmm., a rare bird indeed.

No need to "convert" an AR., just get an extra upper and add a plug n play barrel, bolt and mag in several calibers.


AKBuilder makes Tantal and AK74 pattern barrels to convert 5.45 to 5.56. Not the other way round.

gimmeabreak.

Yeap cheap surplus corrosive ammo was the one advantage the 5.45 had in this country .

Just like the 7.62x25 was popular for some due to cost.
At least brass is available for the x25. I wish I had a bunch.

Megyn Kelly's next episode should be "Horrors of the Poison bullet" and she could interview someone about why 5.45 is bad and linked to Russian aggression against US interests, from Bin Laden to the Moderate Syrians

it would fit the theme of her horrible interviews with Putin and Alex Jones
