I live in Atlanta, GA. It's better than your city.
I have an SGL-31-61 Ak-74. It should fit your SLR just fine, they have a few different kinds(shapes) for diff receivers and such. But like I said, you will see where that 70 dollars really went to after the install. It's the one upgrade you can make to have it really "feel" like a nice AR.
.44 mag is the way I'd go.
