Can I modify my 5.45x39 AK to accept PMags?

The 5.45 and the 5.56 have very similar dimensions and I have noticed that 5.56 rounds will fit in my bakelite mag for my AK (albeit not as snugly). Is there anyway I can modify either my SAR2 AK74 to accept PMags or modify PMags so they will fit in my SAR2?

You could make a new magwell and weld it in.

Although, BTW, 5.45 doesn't work in Pmags.

NOOOooo, all my hopes and dreams are destroyed... just kidding . It is kind of a bummer though, I really like PMags.
