  1. The tube handguard is a Fuglystick. A super-robust platform for this purpose, BTW, and the FAL HB handguard fits on perfectly. Just drill for screws and attach. When I posted this on my FB page, I captioned it "See, Vera? Dress yourself up, you get taken out somewhere fun."
  2. At Her Majesty's Request, the famed Prof. Malthusias Zhirinovsky has completed his final version of the Shoulder-Fired Kinetic Energy Cannon that has taken the world - and several smaller planetoids and certain regions of Mars - by storm! God Save Our Gracious Queen!
  3. I believe the short prong extension you see in the semi-auto AK selector above is what blocks the trigger in an AK. I don't know what does it with a Saiga.
  4. So researching a bit, it appears the only diff between a Saiga lever and a standard semi-auto AK lever is the placement of the "nipple" that clicks into the detents (about 1/4" farther forward on the Saiga). Can anyone confirm?
  5. Okay, sent my Saiga 12 off to a gunsmith to have some work done. Among the jobs, adding selector detents. I just sent the receiver, not the selector, and now he isn't sure if he can put the detents where they would go on any AK, or if there is a different dimension to the Saiga-12 lever. Can I just have him cut the detent to fit a standard lever, or is there a difference? Also, can I replace the old Saiga lever with a semi-auto AK lever later down the road, or do I have to have a Saiga lever in there?
  6. Pics or it didn't happen! I had finish on a Romanian stock that wouldn't dry worth a damn because there was still residual oil in the wood when I applied it. Took forever to get it to harden up. Like, weeks. Wonder if your stock had the same prob.
  7. Another one I've built with a folding stock. Much less elaborate, but I put it together strictly to sell.
  8. Ceracoat does a bronze finish, which is as close as I've come to finding a good permanent copper effect for a gun. Still one of those maybe years-down-the-road possibilities for when I'm otherwise totally done building on it. Right now the SFKEC is still evolving. Recently I've added a VERY sturdy Fuglystick foregrip as a base for the HG, and am hoping to attach a certain unnamed front sight, which I think has a retro space-age quality. Then I'll SBS it and add a Molot brake, and I think I'll finally be done. Here is how she looks now with the Fugly.
  9. Momentarily resurrected to bring you this vanity fluff... (You can build your own pulp fiction cover at http://thrilling-tales.webomator.com/derange-o-lab/pulp-o-mizer/pulp-o-mizer.html)
  10. I like the cut of your jib, Sirrah. But to the contrary, until you'd made my acquaintance I'd never heard of the good Professor, nor his arch-nemesis Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer; my mention of fighting breeches being made sheerly out of proper good sense of attire! Now that you've drawn my attention to these splendid fellows, I count myself among their ardent enthusiasts. My happy thanks, and I doff my hat to thee. Your's Truly, etc. etc.
  11. And now the "news"... KMTR did some tight shots that didn't show how small the group was. And then, in their brief mention that there was a pro-gun protest there as well, they showed 2 seconds of the weirdly-dressed local oddball who happened to truck by on his homemade bike when he saw the rally, in spite of the fact that they filmed a long segment with a well-spoken and well-dressed young man who hit all the important points quite nicely. http://www.kmtr.com/news/local/story/Ceasefire-Oregon-rallies-in-Eugene/682QA7CwsEqo1Owv3CAm-g.cspx This one admits the crowd was small a
  12. Pics of Oregon residents who'd been shot. There would have been 4, but I think Ginny Burdick, Oregon's own Battle Hag of Gun Control didn't show for some reason. Too bad; she's a particularly venomous gun-hater and it's always a kick to hear her rant. Most of the Antis will at least try to tone down their revulsion of gun owners when they get on stage to try not to alienate anybody who might be on the fence, but not Ginny. She despises us all as an entire species, and has no qualms about letting people know about it.
  13. For anyone who isn't familiar with Eugene, OR, it is popularly known as Berkeley North; crowded with hippyleftists of many varieties and totally run in the hopes of establishing a utopian peace-state through communitarian social justice and weed. Total lack of common sense here. Anyway, CEASEFIRE OREGON decided this would be one of the few places in the state where they could show their faces, and so they held a "rally" in support of their draconian AWB HB3200 (which calls for confiscation or forced out-of-state sale of all but one registered so-called AW per owner, and allows the cops to sear
  14. The one difficulty of this design, however, is related to one of the very elements of the Fuglystick which make it superior. The heavy internal reinforcements to the front attachment points are too thick to allow the FAL handguard to be simply drilled and bolted. Part of the reinforcement near the front of the HG, where the Fuglystick attaches via bolt, must be recessed in order to allow the nuts to sit somewhat flush with the rest of the reinforcement. Otherwise, you will not be able to get the HG beyond the barrel, as the nuts will protrude enough to stop the Fuglystick's rearward movment
  15. I'm pleased to report to my esteemed colleagues at the Royal Society of Large-Bore Shooting Irons, that the Honored Professor Malthusias Zhirinovsky (Esq.) has returned from playing The Great Game among the Kaiser's court of the Prusso-Merovingian Empire. He has secreted out with him, at great personal risk, a rare example of a Saiga 12 Fuglystick Handguard, as are used among the feared elite Prussian Imperial Shock Troops (12th Kanoneer Infantrie Korps, Der Brandenburgers). At once upon breathing the free (if factory soot-filled) air of Her Majesty's Beloved Island, he at once set his team
