Default 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.
"The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention which has been praised and denounced... served hero and villain alike... and carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history."
