Quetion about Bushmaster ACR and 7.62 x 39 mm

I know. It's not even in the civilian market so that we wouldn't be able to even get in touch with this massive rifle, but i've got the question when i was searching through the web.

So here it goes. By the bushmaster's hompage and wikipedia, Bushmaster ACR can use 7.62 x 39 mm M43 in case they change chamber system and barrel, without changing any other parts from the rifle. It looks cool and seriously useful when i am in the places like Iraq, but i've got a question about this cool feature.

As long as they said this weapon is capable of firing 7.62 x 39 mm M43, i know it would chamber the 7.62 mm round, but does this weapon really uses AK magazine? I know they use 7.62 x 39 mm, and there is a magazine called "PMag", which is came out from the Magpul Industries, but i just wonder if the ACR can use the real AKM magazine, not from the brand-new design that composed of steel and plastic.

Is anybody have any idea about this question? Feel free to post any idea. I will appreciate it.

I think that is the point of the rifle. It should be designed to use AK 47 mags

Yes, the 7.62x39-chambered ACR can use AK mags.
