Here is the latest updates on the "PSaiganov" (Saiga Based, PSL lookin', Dragunov wannabe) - now in "Stage 4".
Thanks to Dinzag, I have an RPK lower handgrip (Plum - Russian) that fits perfectly, no slop or movement. It is so much more comfortable than the stock grip and there is some meat to hang on to! I've also got the Dinzag FSB mod, Dinzag TAT 5/8-24 thread on the barrel, Dinzag 11* Crown, Dinzag Crush Washer (soon to be a Muzzle Nut) and a Tromix Shark Muzzle brake in 5/8-24 30 caliber.
I've been waiting for the crowning, muzzle brake and fore grip to be finished before I did another range report. Now that it is all put together, I got access to our local 300 yard outdoor range. Sighters at 25 yards (1" low and left of center first shot), then I shot at 100 yards (no pictures available - it is a closed range with only range personnel allowed to go forward of the firing line). The Groups spread to just over 3" at 100 yards from a rest and open sights. A scope is next and it will help a lot. Ammo is M1A2 7,62x51mm 147gr ball from 140 Round South African "Battle Packs".
Just so you know, the entire rifle was built on the kitchen counter - nothing but battery powered or hand tools.

PSaiganov in case with muzzle cover (PVC) to keep the "Shark" from eating it's way out of the case.
