    Unknown M4 gbb mag

    I didn't realise the Pmags are painted metal, thought they were polymer, I'll have a look at the GHK Gmags, thanks for the info.

    Oh, never mind I guess they're useless from my point of view, have to get some new mags, probably G & P Pmag.

    I thought they were designed to fit the WA M4, so figured they would fit the WOC.

    Just removed the baseplates from all the mags, they're all the same with twin gas tubes, so you're right about the Prowin baseplate. Hopefully they will fit my G & P WOC. It does appear that some internal parts are missing/broken so I'll try and get spares. Thanks for your help. Regards Greg

    I see what you mean, it does look like a ghk, oddly the base plate is the same colour as the shell. I would post more photos but it says they are to big. One of the grey mags has the baseplate missing revealing two tubes with screw plugs in tbe ends. The grey and black mags are identical apart from the colour and makers mark.

    Yes it Prowin, on the bottom if the mag it says Prowin Technologies. I have two other mags that are grey colour but no makers name. One mag is complete the other has parts missing, all the mags have steel outer casings.

    J I have the above mag which is made by Prowin, but have no idea what M4 gbb its for. If anyone can identify it I would be grateful.

    That's a good idea, what type and size of screw did you use ? I may try the screw option if I can't figure out a way of re-setting the rivet. Yesterday I produced some drawings of rivet jaws to fit 24" bolt cutters, as used by DIY AK builders in the USA. The plan is to make the jaws from mild steel (probably won't last long) and fit them to a cheap pair of bolt cutters. The screw idea is simpler and less hassle though.

    That's certainly an option but I am having trouble finding the tooling to set the semi tubular rivets in the UK.

    At long last I've finished my Well G74A build (sorry for the poor photo, taken with a mobile phone), the parts fitted are:- 1. 5KU AK to M4 Adaptor fitted with Nuprol AXE stock - hinge pin hole had to be drilled out to 4.76 (3/16") because the Well hinge pin is 4.67mm dia. Also stuck a small piece of flat rubber sheet (0.7MM thk) to the rear trunnion to take up play in the stock adaptor when locked in position. 2. Command Arms G47 grip - Fixing hole in the grip had to be enlarged to allow it to fit over the threaded spigot on the receiver, material removed from the front of the grip so that it would fit around the trigger guard. A plastic spacer was also made to cover the rectangular cut out in the receiver. 3. ACM replica of the Surefire M83U handguards - Material had to be removed from the inside rear faces of the top section to permit the installation of the rear gas tube cap & material removed from the front location shoulder so that it would fit the front upper handguard retainer. The lower handguard retainer also needed some small recesses filed into the top to allow it to clear the upper handguard. 4. Ares VZ.58 Czech Long Flash Hider - 14mm anti clockwise thread tapped deeper to allow it to screw all the way on. I also cut the inner barrel down to suit. Since finishing this build I've started another project using the full length Well G74B (AK74MN) but there is an issue with the rear trunnion rivets. The rivet that goes through the side rail and into the rear trunnion is slightly loose, does anyone know how it can be reset ?

    You've done a good job fitting the grip, I may forget the CAA one I have & get the Magpul version. The other issue with the CAA grip is the fact that it is narrower where it meets the receiver so the cut out for the original grip location lugs is exposed. Also the recoil buffer block pokes out the bottom of the receiver by approximately 1mm, so that will need modifying to allow the grip to sit flush.

    Good idea to put some metal rods in, I may try that out on mine.

    I think the Well G74 is different to the WE, I tried fitting a CAA pistol grip but it needs some work to make it fit. The trigger guard is to wide, the hole for the fixing bolt is to small to allow the grip to slide over the grip nut/spiggot, the spiggot is to long so a spacer is needed between the head of the fixing bolt and the grip. Also the Well's fixing bolt is M5 the CAA grip comes with an M6 bolt.

    I noticed that you have a Magpul MOE pistol grip fitted, did that need fitting or was it a drop in fit ?

    I think that is what I'll have to do.
