  1. Refurbished member here- I don't even show up on the member list though can log in : ) Was a member 5+ years ago but never got around to converting my Saiga 7.62X39, which I purchased for $300. Have added a Royal Tiger AK (also $300 and supposedly US made) and a PSL 7.62X54R to the arsenal. I have 10 US made 30 round mags for the Saiga plus a 10 round and a 5 round, and 10 European 30 round metal mags for the AK. Does it make sense to convert, given the price of replacement mags for the Saiga nowadays? I have searched but cannot find tutorials here on doing the conversion- I'm probably not looking in the right places so any help is appreciated. Thanks for your help.

    U.S. made Sporter Stock?

    You're along the same track as me. I settled for a Russian wood stock: 1.7 Wood Furniture for 7.62/.223 New Wood Furniture set specifically for the .223 and 7.62 x 39 Saiga rifles. Made by Izmash and is composed of birch wood which has a smooth grain... $135.00 http://www.saigastock.com/index.php?main_p...4ksdu7df3fktm42 It is very attractive and was easy to install- though did require just a touch of filing. I'm adding the Dinzag trigger (when it finally arrives) and a gas piston (which came right away). I figure the piston can be no more complicated than the trigger group!

    Where to get a stock handguard for 7.62

    I have one I'm not using. Send me a note with what you think it is worth shipped.
  4. Ammoman has 7.62x39 delivered for $299/1000, Natchez has 9mm for $14/50 rounds. Have we reached the tipping point where supply is catching up with demand? Has everybody tapped out either financially or filled their storage space? Are prices going south finally? Would you buy this deal? I know I bought at least one case at $369 delivered so it looks good to me!

    Some Ammo Deals

    Im not calling you a lier bro, but Gunbroker hasn't had an auction close at .25 a round for a long, long time. Maybe you saw an auction that was still active. Sportsman's Guide sent me repeated shipping delays, which I didn't mind. Then, they canceled my backorder- I replied the next day but they said it was too long. I think their price went up and they didn't want to honor my purchase price. I canceled my membership- kick 'em to the curb. Just remember who these merchants are when everything returns to normal. I know who'll get my business- and who won't!

    Obama's Assault Rifle message

    Apparently, at least someone thinks guns and ammo are a good investment! http://blogs.moneycentral.msn.com/topstock...20than%20stocks

    Obama's Assault Rifle message

    The good news is that today Obama indicated during his trip to visit the Mexican president that he would not support an assault gun ban. While this is not because of any change in his philosophy, it is due to his political savvy. Recognizing that he won only by a 6% margin, and many of the people who voted for him are conservative democrats who support gun ownership, Obama recognized the political impossibility of taking the gun issue on. Apparently, Hillary was disciplined for earlier statements about her/husband's agenda to reinstate the ban. Our NRA and pro gun lobbyists have done some excellent work. Eventually, there should be some leveling out of the entire supply/demand thing for ammo prices. Since the recession began, all commodities are way lower priced than they had been, especially last summer. Brass, lead, chemicals and labor all have downward price pressures so from a manufacturing basis prices should be the cheapest they've been in years. The downward pricing is being offset by demand from the wars around the world and from all the newbies who have purchased 7.62 weapons and are stockpiling ammo for them along with others who were already stockpiling, and greed. I hope the ban message will get the supply chain back to normal soon. When that happens we customers need to remember which merchants were fair to us during this challenging time and which ones weren't. Which companies continued to provide good service and which ones used the demand as an excuse for crappy and slow service. Feel free to suggest companies for either list. I recently had outstanding service from Saigastock.com- 3 days from order to receipt! Sounds like folks on this site feel gouged by CTD.

    SureFire 7.62x39 30 round mag opinions

    This is probably a silly question, but if you add a bullet guide will the Saiga mags still work?

    Where is all the 7.62x39 ammo....Help a brother out!

    Checked and Local Academy had Monarch for 5.69 a 20 rd box. It's not bad ammo........Bought 4x 500 rd cases of it there for 74.80ea back in Oct. Would like to see that again. My kids go through it fast! I just checked out sportsmans guide- they're all out of the x39. however, i was able to get 5,000 cci .22's for 249 including shipping. I love plinking those little guys.

    Which stocks

    Thanks, that makes sense. How does one determine which version the stock will fit? What version is the Saiga?

    9mm Rifle

    I recently bought a Keltec sub2000 glock rifle. Folds to 16 inches for easy back pack or under jacket carry. Mine shoots a 4inch pattern at 100 yards. Also uses the same mags as my Glock 26- so I have a small hoard of 33 rounders for either one!

    SO... is it REALLY non-reloadable?

    Winter is the best time to work up special loads to try, etc. louielouie I'm interested in reloading handgun and rifle calibers but am confused by the dies and multiple presses and all so wouldn't have a clue about what I'd need to get going. Can anybody recommend a kit and mention what are the essentials for gettin 'r done? I'd be willing to spend $3-400- would that get me everything I need to reload?

    Who has 7.62 saiga in stock?

    I just clicked on every one of their Saigas, each was a "fatal error". Maybe that's webspeak for out of stock?

    If you have any interest & a pocket full of money...

    Would someone explain to us less informed guys how a Bulgarian would be 922 compliant?
