  1. Here's a place you can get once-fired hulls: http://leadandbrass.com/zencart2/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=79 I've never bought from them, but I've heard good things about them. Hope this helps, Carl
  2. Sorry, I missed this thread back in April due to insane amounts of overtime. I'm just now catching up... Turbo, Thanks for the great explanation and pics. That really helps! Did you cast your own wadcutters, or did you buy them? Also, do you lube just the grooves or do you lube the grooves and then lube the whole bullet? Many thanks, Carl
  3. Got a flyer today from Centerfire systems. They have Saiga 7.62x39s and .223s in stock for $399. That's higher than the $349 I paid for a 7.62x39 back in late September, but not too bad... Carl
  4. I bought an '08 7.62x39 saiga this last October, and it doesn't have the dimples. It does have the PG hole, though. Sure made doing my conversion much easier! FYI, my wife's '08 saiga .410 has the PG hole, too. Carl
  5. No. Safety not on Bolt will only open about a inch It looks like the bolt is hitting the front of the follower not letting the bolt turn the hole way If i push down on the follower just a little bit the bolt will open I removed the follower and then it will open I think the follower is coming up to much or is to thick on the sides preventing the bolt from tuning to unlock I had this problem with my 15-round mag. The problem was a plastic burr on the top left front of the follower. Couldn't pull the bolt back at all, and it was hard to load the mag into the well w
  6. Here's the link to a great conversion site. I followed the directions here for my first build and it came out great. All you need to put the BHO back in is 2 feet of dental floss. Page 8 of the build is the start of putting the BHO back in. You can find it here: http://www.stu-offroad.com/firearms/saiga/saiga-8.htm Enjoy! Carl
  7. If trigger pull is an issue, converting the saiga to an AK pistol grip configuration will help a lot. I converted mine a couple of weeks ago and the difference in trigger pull before/after is incredible! Of course, I'd be envious right now of 7" groups at 100 yards, 'cause my old eyes can't even see the stinkin' target at 100 yards anymore with open sights! Sigh...guess it's time for me to get glasses... Carl
  8. Can you be a little more specific? What kind of magazine (vendor, # of rounds, steel or poly) are you trying to modify? If you're trying to convert a saiga 5-round mag to a 10-round mag, I think Tapco makes a replacement follower that does that quite easily, and doesn't require you to modify the spring. Carl
  9. Check out this site for converting Berdan brass to boxer: http://users.ameritech.net/mchandler/primer.html Carl
  10. Hmmm. You must have an older Saiga .410. The newer ones have the hole. Check out the instructions on this conversion page: http://www.cross-conn.com/Saiga_Conversion/Step_5.htm . There is a link you can click on to get a drawing of how to cut the PG nut hole. Good luck, Carl
  11. All, Within hours of taking office, Obama has completely redone the White House website, outlining his agendas with large dose of propaganda built in to boot. Of particular concern to those of this board should be the following excerpt from Obama's "Urban Policy" webpage. Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden al
  12. I just converted my 7.62x39, and I used a retaining plate. I used the following conversion guide: http://www.stu-offroad.com/firearms/saiga/saiga-1.htm This was posted here awhile back in another thread, but I'm too lazy to go look it up. To see the retaining plate, go to page 9 of the conversion (http://www.stu-offroad.com/firearms/saiga/saiga-9.htm). It's easy as pie to put in, takes all of two seconds! Good luck! Carl
  13. Thanks, nalioth! I have a friend that's a welder and I'm sure he can do that for me. I was figuring I'd have to have my friend weld on another piece of metal to the mag catch lever then file it down, but your idea is both simpler and better. Funny how often "simpler" and "better" go hand in hand... Thanks again, Carl
  14. Looking to buy a Bulgarian Trigger guard w/no pivot pin holes. Many thanks, Carl
