Anyone converting FAL magazines to fit the 17S?

I have heard that it isn't very reliable, but I am not sure why. Search M4carbine.net, I think Quietshootr did several but he didn't like the results and I think he has instructions on how to do it. It wouldn't hurt to try it.

He also recently posted a company that is making an aluminum lower that will accept PMags. I think it is $350 or so.

I have heard that the magazines are much more available now, was that just a rumor too?:mad:

I was thinking really hard about getting one myself.

ETA:

Here is the link about the new PMag lower.

The magazines are more available now yes. I bought a bunch online but theyre still around 40-50 a piece. If your thinking of getting one just keep in mind the lack (at the moment) of third party support. The quality and reliability surpass AR's hands down, but the aftermarket is nowhere near that or other guns
