  1. Fellow members and visitors… Do to some extreme health issues, I’m getting out of my SAIGA .308 hobby. This is a package deal for the whole thing… I don’t really want to attempt to part-out the various items… REDUCED WTS - $1,000.00 + shipping This weapon is the 4th .308 Saiga conversion I’ve done. It was completed about Five (5) years ago. I ran ~20 rounds through the weapon to verify function and safety, and then put it away… my go-to-weapon in case of zombie uprising… The basic weapon is a Saiga .308, 16”. It has a T-6 stock installed. I had Cobra install his “T6-buffer” in the stock to reduce recoil.. It has a G2 trigger group from Dinzag along with a pistol hand grip and forward hand guard brace. All in all a nice, basic modification. I also did the modification to the stock magazine to convert it from 8 rounds to a nine-ten (9-10) round capability. Photo is of weapon as it sets today. See below for additional modifications done/started… I am also including three (3) Surefire magazines (two have been used in previous weapons, one is new), and three (3) Pro-Mag magazines that have been loaded but never used. NOW… I decided about three and ½ years ago to do some additional modifications to the weapon, as the photo shows. I decided to change the rails, sights, etc. on the weapon. I wanted to give it a longer and more accurate sight picture using the open sights, sorta the SIG or POF look.. I removed the front and rear sights (they are included), in plastic zip-lock bags. I removed the cover and installed one with the full top rail. It mounts into the rear sight area and screws into the top of the rear stock mount. It seems to be very solid. I installed a flip up rear sight on this rail. I then modified a quad-rail made for the AK 7.65 x 39. It fits the weapon very tight and also provides the mount point for the flip up front sight. This modified unit HAS NOT been coated where I did the modifications. I would suggest some “final fitting” and then a good coat of color for the unit. I purchased the DIE and a Muzzle Break from Brian to thread the barrel and add the muzzle break. This is when I had my major health issues… The threading is NOT completed at this point. The DIE and Muzzle Break are included in zip-lock bags There are other spare and misc. parts included… BARSKA 1-3x30 IR (Multi Rail) scope, Dinzag modified fire/safety lever with the BHO (Bolt Hold Open) modification… Dinzag modified regular BHO lever with the spring, never installed.. Stock BHO with spring. Extra Hammer Spring… Factory sling (never installed)… Receiver cover with rings and Weaver Rail on top… Factory oil can, brushes, etc. Factory rear stock… There is an over-size hard case included with this weapon also. I expect the shipping to be about $50-$70 total, ground UPS… I can only ship the weapon to a FFL dealer and will need a signed copy of their license. BE SURE they will accept shipment from an individual (non FFL). I can ship the weapon (with minimal parts) to the FFL and the balance of the parts (bulk) directly to the purchaser. Insurance will be added (at buyers cost) if you want it. Thanks for looking…
  2. Heard some "rumours" that the 20 or 25 round mags will not work with the Kpup?? Your thoughts or experieces... Thanks...
  3. My 308 is a full tactical conversion. I've got a 74 muzzle brake up fornt and a "special tube" in the T6 stock (from Cobra). Doesn't bother me... and my 13, 14, and 15 year old Grandkids shoot it as well.
  4. If I'm carrying in a holster... then a Glock would be fine... I've handled and fired them at the range and they're very nice... ...but.... If I'm carrying in my pants pocket, close to the jewels... ...I want that added safety Practicing with a safety, and disengaging same, when pulling it out of your pants pocket... ... it becomes your natural movement. WHAT EVER you get... ...Practice your draw..aim..fire... Smooth counts, no fast draw %$#* or you could shoot off a toe! I'm a 45acp fan myself... Both my concealed carry and my holster weapon...
  5. Well... guess I'll add my 2 cents worth... I've read through the varied responses, most the guys have valid points and selections! Just depends on where you are when it hits, and how hard it hits... ... Nothing like but here goes... I've setup my "SHTF Prep" with some basic standardizations... 45ACP For all my handguns and my "quick response" Carbine, Just need some bigger mags for the carbine... 308 For my "kick ass" surburban and long-gun with 1.5-10x30... SAIGA of course... 12GA Shotgun for close in work, not a Saiga but nice, reliable, and damn accurate. We keep it loaded with Low Recoil 00Buck & Slugs for Momma... 22lr Semi Auto, mag feed. Now this is where I agree with several of the other members. 22lr, and a very SHARP machetes (for the big knife)... MOST IMPORTANT is lots of mags and enough ammo to cover your ass... ... and your buddy when he shows up and is "almost out"... ... and don't forget those "spare parts" for each weapon. Some of these might make nice clubs but they all let the zombies get too close!
  6. Thinking of expanding my 308 lineup, and thought I'd look at a good PTR 91. I've reviewed some write-ups and decided to stay away from the CEME and FAL 91 clones. Wondered if anyone in the group has had a good PTR 91, how it handled, etc. etc. And yea, I already have more than one SAIGA 308.... Thanks....
  7. I'll take the scope. Thanks Let me know payment details, etc.
  8. Just went through the "What does your screen name mean", Cool info. Looking at all the various avitars we've picked to represent us to the forum... thought it might be fun to see why you picked the image you did?? Now for me, my avitar just sums up my attitude about being a legal, licensed (when I need to be), weapon toting American! How about you???
  9. OK... guess I've got to come clean... My full frame 45acp is "Dad", my carry 45 acp is "Junior", the wife's 357 with pink grips is "The Bitch" (she named that one). The 12ga Pump (dressed out) is "Wild Thing" (it's a Maverick), the Saiga 308 is "Dr. Reach", and my 45 acp Carbine is just "Uncle "... ... at least for now....
  10. DPH (couldn't afford a Krebs) ... ... and a UTG Tactical 7.62x39 Quad rail (with some work as stated above)..
  11. Added entery to item showing sold/shipped, couldn't get on to change the original post. Thanks, Louie

  12. Well... I'm converting my 308 to a "SAW" style... work in progress. I used an Alum. Quad rail for 7.62x39 with some TLC, Dremel, and lots of T I M E.. Got a nice, clean and very tight fit. Still have to Pull the FSB and replace with a nice Break... Then put on fore and aft flip up sights on the LONG top rail I now have... ....Will give me ~ 21" aft to front for sight picture.
  13. Installed it (firm and tight) but never fired the weapon with it installed. It fits over the tag on the barrel and secures with the screw through the bottom of the reciever area. I do know they make a "top" rail that converts it into a Quad Rail style setup... You can add the "top" rail for ~ $35.00 NEW... I do not have one of those...
  14. Still available - REDUCED New unit (installed but never used). Comes with the screw. List (NEW) is $64.95 + shipping Sell for 45.00 $40.00 (shipping included). USPS Money Order... ...or ... PayPal NO FEES (be sure to call it forward grip... or something like that) . If you want to do paypal, IM and I'll send my outside email info. Photo is just from a vendor web site (where I bought it)..
  15. Been reviewing everything I can find... but.... I need a FUll Quad Rail that will fit my Saiga 308... vanilla fit would be nice... or minimal re-work would be OK... Anyone have any ideas or have one installed
  16. Like some linfo also... Looking for a FULL Quad rail that will fit my Saiga 308?????????
  17. Was really getting the ^%$$& kicked out of me with my 16" Saiga 308. Was surprised how much more "kick" than my 22" 308 units... All of them have the T-6 style stock, so..... I got Cobra to do his "special tube" modification for my T-6 Stock on this one. Made a GREAT DIFFERENCE in the recoil and being able to stay on target between shots. I had already tried a "recoil spring" setup, but it didn't really make much difference. Thanks Cobra, for the product and the conversion!!!
  18. Guys, Sorry, I really did look... Need to locate the forum topic on modifing the Safety Lever (slotting) to allow it to hold open the bolt handle. Local Range Officer has been giving me a hard time... Thanks, CaptLouie
  19. Why am I always a day late?!? If it falls through give me a shout, it's sold. Think it's a solid sale... ... But you're on the list if things change. Capt Louie
