    i didnt need a bullet guide??

    i bought em off centerfire last week they were 13$ a piece. i think they were supposably izzy plums that got painted over or something and labaled 'bulgaria' i think.. they dont have the feedramp on them. im still gonna put the bullet guide in because i already bought it, i was just suprised it worked

    i didnt need a bullet guide??

    this weekend i shot my saiga converted for the first time. i still hadnt put the bullet guide in but figured id try out a milsurp mag anyway. a couple times i had to pull the bolt back once or twice to get the first bullet to feed in, but after the first it worked perfectly whats the deal?

    first time shooting the saiga

    If you're shooting corrosive ammo, you will need to clean it not too long after shooting. Otherwise, you can afford to be lazy. what parts do i clean after using corrosive ammo?

    first time shooting the saiga

    this is going to be my first time shooting the saiga this weekend. before i shoot it are there any last bits of maintenance i need to do? the manual said to clean the bore to remove grease. what should i do this with? the box came with the cleaning rod but nothing to clean it with after i clean the bore, do i need to lube it at all? i dont have lube either. after shooting, do i need to clean the bore again or will it be fine

    bullet guide confusion

    I don't know a damn thing, about 5.45's specifically, but assuming the answers to your 2 questions are the same as they would be, if speaking of a x39 Saiga....... 1) Compare a regular AK mag next to a Saiga mag. You'll see that there's a little "lip" on the front of the feedlip area, that is absent on a regular AK mag. Using a regular AK mag (again, which doesn't have that "lip"), the bullet guide bumps the round up a tad, when it's being fed into the chamber. That's exactly what the "lip" on the front of factory Saiga mags do. 2) I've heard that they are supposed to, but I've seen pics of some peoples guide installs and it sits flush. The bullet guide I have in my x39 hangs over the edge a tad too. Loaded mags rock in with zero problem and rounds feed 100%. (My guide is from Dinzag too) alright, i havent had the chance to get any milsurp mags so i couldnt compare the 2 myself. thanks
  7. 1) why do i need a bullet guide to use milsurp mags but i dont need one to use saiga mags? whats the difference? 2) i just bought dinzags guide for my 5.45. i havent installed it yet but i slipped it in position just to see what it was like and it hangs over the edge a little. is it supposed to hang over?

    best surplus mags for my ak?

    ^^Agreed. The ones at centerfire have been sanitized and painted black by Arsenal Bulgaria (Not the guys in Vegas). They are plum magazines that the Russians sold/gave to the Bulgarians at one time or another. At $12 and change they are the best deal in the market right now. I have 4 of them (although I bought them a while ago from another vendor and used paint thinner and elbow grease to remove the black finish). Anyway yakdung has no idea what hes talking about, just buy surplus when they are available cheap (no need to test one out like he says, thats just silly and a waste of double shipping). i was plannin on buying 4 from centerfire, so you think thats a good plan? do polymers have any advantages over steel? or are steel mags better to have Yeah I think you have a good plan. Polys do not freeze and are lighter. Just make sure you buy surplus com block or new K-Var poly mags as they have steel reinforcement where it counts. ALSO DO NOT BUY TAPCO OR PROMAG, only chumps who can't use the fucking search feature in this forum end up with those. You don't want your mags to break. do the milsurp from centerfire have 'steel reinforcement where it counts' ?

    best surplus mags for my ak?

    im looking for some cheap, yet quality 30 round mags for my 74. first off, what is better, a polymer or steal mag? i see on centerfire website they're selling milsurp mags at 13$ each. http://www.centerfiresystems.com/magaka74-p.aspx would this be a good choice? probably cant beat the price, but are milsurp mags good? are they steel or polymer? also it says no handpicking so im assuming the quality might be bad on some? i also did some searching and found these as well http://www.copesdistributing.net/product_info.php?products_id=1964 http://www.copesdistributing.net/product_info.php?products_id=1975 thoughts on these? or should i go a different route. im planning on buying 4 mags

    tapco "new" retaining plate

    i got it on.. thanks for the pdf link thats what was throwing me off was that second hole w/ elongated slot.. idk what its for
  13. i got my conversion parts recently and decided to go with the new retaining plate because it was like $5 cheaper. it seems to install into the gun quite differently and havent figured out how to do it yet, any one help me here?
  14. it took me a while but i got the rivets out and im now trying to drill out that spot weld. i odnt know if anyone else had problems with this, but my drill wont cut through this thing its pretty much just polishing the outside i have cobalt bits and have tried drilling through from top and bottom of teh gun but the bit just spins any tips?
  15. alright for my 5.45x39 i bought a us trigger and buttstock which would bring foreign parts down to 10. the thing im confused about is my pistol grip. the way i read it in the sticky is that installing a pistol grip would bring the parts count up to 11, but that doesnt make sense to me because the pistol grip is american. so am i fine with 4 american parts and the pistol grip, or do i need to buy another american part as well
