  1. yo, how did you find me?

  2. http://www.izhmash.ru/eng/product/weapon.shtml http://www.izhmash.ru/eng/product/akm.shtml http://www.izhmash.ru/eng/product/akms.shtml Izhmash advertises AKM and AKMS rifles under products->weapons... so I guess Izhmash still makes these as well as the AK-103/104... probably where these barrels are coming from.... ?
  3. The threads for 5.45x39 rifles are found on the FSB, not the barrel, as far as I know... so I don't think you'll be seeing any factory-threaded 5.45x39 barrels.
  4. It appears that the two features which indicate you have a factory-threaded, military version barrel as opposed to the standard civilian Saiga barrel are the addition of the notches for the lower handguard retainer and the lack of stepping in the cases. For those hoping to find threads hiding under the front sleeve of the FSB because of your manufacture date, I would assume that the lack of those two features assures you have the standard non-threaded barrel.
  5. http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?showtopic=7303 (from the sticky at the top of the 7.62x39 section)
  6. If you remove your handguard and look at the barrel, are there notches cut into the sides of the barrel for a lower handguard retainer? Have you checked your spent shell casings to see if they have a step stamped into the neck after firing?
  7. Were the notches cut into the side of the barrel for the lower handgaurd retainer? Does your barrel put the step into the neck of the casings? My brother picked up an '09 that has the notches cut into the barrel and it also does not step the cases... leaving me to believe he may have a barrel that is also threaded... (He plans on removing his FSB sometime in the near future, but hasn't yet)
  8. From what I've heard, if your vehicle does not have a trunk, you need to transport your firearms in a case that has a lock on it when crossing state lines. Edit: From http://www.nraila.org/GunLaws/Federal/Read.aspx?id=59
  9. Almost finished with my 5.45x39 conversion and had some questions before continuing. Today I replaced my GB and FSB but haven't drilled the holes and put the pins in yet. I received an order of parts for this conversion today and the pins I ordered were left out, so I'm wondering if there's anything else I could use as suitable replacements for the pins. Also, since this is my first time working on a rifle to this extent, I'm not fully confident I have the GB aligned. Light and air both appear to be passing through the gas port, but for all I know the hole could be half covered by the GB. Just
  10. Item as described, excellent communication and fast shipping. An honest seller who I would recommend to others and buy from again. (Item: Bulgarian Front Sight Block 24mm threads)
  11. I just heard about this, but for all you vets out there who served after 9/11 and your enlistment was extended due to stop-loss, looks like they are retroactively paying $500 for each month of stop-loss. (18 months here !) http://www.defenselink.mil/releases/release.aspx?releaseid=13063 http://www.clarksvilleonline.com/2009/10/24/tanner-announces-retroactive-pay-for-stop-loss-troops/ Thought there might be others here who qualify, or know someone who does...
  12. By the way, the weight of the UTG rail is 12.2 oz (from leapers site). Didn't have an easy time finding the weight of the Ultimak (tube and tri rail) until I came across a post on glocktalk where a dude weighed it... gas tube: 4 oz, ACR2: 12 oz, total: 16 oz.
  13. I helped someone I know do a conversion on their 7.62 Saiga. When he told me he had ordered this UTG quad rail, I told him all about the negative things I've heard about it, blah blah, it might just be junk. But, now that I've actually seen it myself and fired that rifle many times now (in fact, was just shooting that rifle a few hours ago) I can't find a single complaint against it... except maybe the ability to cowitness, but some people could care less.
