    Saiga 308 Discontinued?

    See my entry under WTS-WTT about a "308 wood furniture". I found a private that has one for sale. I didn't get it because I found another and can't afford another... and another... and another... Luck
  2. I didn't put mine back due to a broken spring. INTEND to re-install the BHO when I get another spring. You can modify the BHO plate your self or look under "for sale or trade forum". Member Cobra_76_two at "Cobra Custom" has a modified BHO that can be installed and stays out of the way. See the details under his entry... Cudo's on being able to re-install the &^%$ thing too. Trying is how I busted my spring..

    TAPCO Intrafuse Saiga T6 Stock Set

    Read your thread.... IF your going to do the FCG conversion I'd go with the regular T-6. Installed that on my 308, easy install. It let's me modify the butt stock so I can fire the weapon and MOMMA can use it also (by just shortening the stock).

    WTB - factory Bolt Hold Open Spring

    I figured something like that... If you've got a "spring" available I'd rather buy a factory one that go the make your own route... My experience lately with any kind of tools has been kinda bad... how about REALLY bad.

    WTB - factory Bolt Hold Open Spring

    Make your own with a pair of pliers, a screwdriver and $1.50... Go to your local remote control hobby store (HobbyTown etc.) They will have a section that has spring steel rods in various lengths and diameters. (Not to mention brass, aluminum and various plactic pieces.) Find the right diameter rod you need. Should cost about $1.50. Use a screwdriver, socket wrench extension, or what ever metal shaft you can find of the proper diameter to use to wrap the spring steel around. trim to length with wire cutters. It may take a few tries to get it just right. For $1.50 you should have enough to make 10 BHO springs. Good Idea, unless I can get "it" for $4 to $5, and envelop and a couple of postage stamps. Maybe he is buildking a college fund for one of the kids... I asked my oldest son if he was available to be sold/traded for a spring... he figured his wide and two children would object... I know.... I'll get DeeDee to take care of her brother for me... Thanks for the info...
  8. Heads up. I was negotiating with a lady (in Phoenix) to purchase a Saiga 308 with factory wood furniture (believe its 20" barrel). She said it had ~ 50 rnds fired and wanted $550,,, I offered $525... she said no. SO.. I purchased another unit with black furniture yesterday... Then last night she decides she WILL sell for $525. She has/had a small collection to sell (not sure if it was a death or divorce). I can't afford to buy another one (not unless I want a divorce), so here is her contact info incase anyone is interested. Told her I'd let some "friends" know about the weapon. Mention my name (won't help but shouldn't hurt). Theresa Perry [tap1975@yahoo.com] Luck......

    308 Trigger housing re-mount

    Did you get this question resolved? There are a couple of good "conversion" tags on the forum. I just did my first .308 conversion. You need to chk those directions... Or... here is the web site showing how on a 223 (Saiga-1 through -10 (if you count the scope question)... Saiga-6 starts to show the trigger guard photos... http://www.stu-offroad.com/firearms/saiga/saiga-1.htm Trim the long end of the guard (was the rear) off... Trimmed end goes under the Mag Latch... (can see the hole in the guard looking down through the mag. latch) Mark the frame where that hole is... Drill frame and mount the rear of the guard... (should be a mark/guide on the frame) Drill down in the center of the Mag. Latch, through the frame... I used 10-32 by 3/8" round top/allen head screws with the heads on the inside of the frame and nuts on the outside. Drilled 3/16" holes... Some locktit on the threads AFTER you are sure everything fits. Nut on outside (inside the Mag. latch) is tough, but you can do it... Hope this helps....

    Safety Problem

    Just finished my 1st 308 conversion and think I have this "Safety Problem": Problem is - Charge the weapon... - Put safety on... - Touch trigger (slight movement)... - Release the trigger... - Remove safety... - WEAPON FIRES! CAN this be corrected with the weld/add to the safety? I currently have the dinzagarms single trigger FCG, easy installation! Would a double trigger setup help this problem? Whould I be better off to get the FSE or RSA FCG and replace the G2? I don't really need an adjustable trigger, so probably the FSE FCG.... Thanks for any assist....
  17. Decided to start my conversion today... ...Discovered I DO NOT have the (2) pins to drill out (they hold the trigger, transfer bar, and retention spring)... ...they are not there! I understand the 308 is different (has the weird trigger placement) than the 223, but??? The retention spring is around the re-most removable pin that holds the trigger, sear and disconnect. The forward removable pin holds the hammer, and hammer spring. The retention spring WORKS! I Cannot get either of the two retaining pins out because the spring is still in place. I've tried to move the spring to the side or up to clear the slot in either of the pins, no go... HELP... Any thoughts on how to proceed.... Anyone else ran into this situation... Thanks...
