    I had never heard of a conversion kit for an AK -

    http://www.22lrconversions.com/ak-pg.htm

    Only thing I did not like

    FUNCTIONING: The kit functions FLAWLESSLY (guaranteed) using good quality High Velocity .22 LR ammunition. Hyper and standard velocity is not recommended

    Anyone tried one of these?

    I don't know if that's worth it. High quality .22LR is about 7-9 cents per round. While my 5.45 is 12 cents per round.

    Is there now some sort of kit that allows you to shoot the 7.62x25 out of the x39 barrel?

    I don't believe so. You would have to re-barrel your AK to do that.
