There are a few paths to choose with regards to AK-47 magazines. The most common is the surplus magazine route. These surplus magazines are often under $10 with better prices on bulk purchases. The other path is new manufacture from folks like Tapco and Promag which will cost between $12-$17. I cant really offer an opinion on what to get. The AK-47 is pretty tolerant to magazine variances.
There's are few sources for AK-47 barrels many of which are no better then what you may be attempting to replace to start with. Keeping that in mind the only company I am aware of manufacturing quality AK-47 barrels is Green Mountain Rifle Barrel Company.
If there are other sources please let me know through the contact page.
Yes even an AK-47 can have a 2-3 pound trigger pull thanks to Jard Triggers. The price about $100 isn't to steep either compared to triggers for other weapon systems such as the AR-15. If your on a budget Tapco has AK-47 Trigger upgrades for less then $30.
