  1. Excellent communication and fast payment. Great guy to deal with!
  2. Folks I've got a bullet guide for .223 Saiga with round trunnion. Includes drill bit, tap for threading and allen wrench for retaining bolt. $20.00 shipped. I'll accept USPS money order or discrete PayPal with fees. Thanks for looking. SPF to Wagnikov My apologies for posting in the wrong forum folks!

    Thanks Brian!

    Couldn't agree more! I recently placed an order and in my haste I put in an incorrect zip code and the website kicked it back twice before I double checked and saw the incorrect zip code. I didn't think anything of it until I looked at my credit card statement and saw two too many charges. I e-mailed Brian and he assured me that the two extra charges would drop out in 3-4 days max. The charges actually dropped off much faster and I received my order right after the charges dropped off! The super-quick shipping got me back on track with a Saiga conversion that I was right in the middle of! Thanks Brian!!!

    WOLVERINES!

    Thanks Gyrene! Just ordered four of your fine products!
  5. I'm far from an expert but AFAIK just about any AK FSB will work. I think there might be minor differences as far as Yugo FSBs, not sure. I'm getting ready to convert a 7.62x39 and a long-barrel .223 using Polish AKM FSBs. I'll let you know how it goes.

    What did you do to your rifle today?

    Tried out a couple of Tula 30rd magazines. Other than that, nothing! Gotta get off my duff and actually test fire them!

    Magazine Conversion

    If? One way to find out is to purchase or borrow a high capacity military surplus mag and find out for yourself on your rifle, dont take my word for it! You need a couple or more such mags to check because I have seen the occaisional odd mag not fit in the magwells on some rifles, while many other mags would fit fine. On a 7.62 Saiga there is 99.9% chance that you will have to dremel/file the mag catch or change it out, your option, in order to use military mags period. This is one fact reported on the "error net" that that rings true. You will quite likely need a bullet guide as well for maximum reliability, although some report some calibers work without them. My experience has been that bullet guides were required for proper feeding from military mags in my 7.62x39, 5.45x39 and .223 Saiga rifles. I hear you, I was always planning to buy a bullet guide and install it like the guy did in the video. I know that the Saiga mags have bullet guides and AK mags don't and they don't feed right unless they are inside a gun that has one. My question was more about whether I would need to file anything down if I move the FCG back, cause this guy didn't and he fed AK clips just fine. I was worried about checking the gun at the end of the conversion, after replacing everything and installing the bullet guide. What if the mags don't fit or it doesn't feed right? Would it be because I installed the bullet guide wrong or because I didn't file down what I was suppose to file down? Also, of course I'm going to buy AK mags to check that, the whole reason I'm doing the magazine conversion is because AK mags are usually high cap and cheaper than Saiga mags in any case. I just asked cause once I start filing stuff down, i can't get that material back on the receiver. Good point! I just finished a conversion on a 5.45x39, including a bullet guide install. I tried a couple of ProMag AK74 30 rounders and they wouldn't lock in. Luckily I had purchased a bunch of Tula bakelite 30 rd mags and some Tantal 30 rounders back when I still had a CAI Tantal - every one of those mags lock in nice and tight and NO wobble! I'm glad I tried some different mags instead of starting to grind on those ProMags. I'm starting a conversion on a 20" barrelled .223 and have already tried a Galil 35rd mag - kinda wobbly. I'm going to try some of the Bulgy waffle mags and some others. Test/trial fit before grinding.

    Thinking about a Franken-Galil

    Ooooh, neat! Thanks Pauly! I'll definitely keep those in mind, especially in black! Thanks!
  9. Folks, I've got a 20" barreled Saiga .223 and am considering a "sorta-Galil" conversion. I'm looking at leaving the stock Saiga front sight assembly in place, removing the rear sight leaf completely and replacing the stock top cover with a Galil cover and rear sight assembly or the Tech Sights brand unit. My question is - which unit will work better with the stock Saiga front sight? BTW, I'll also be replacing the fixed stock with an ACE skeleton folding unit, going to a modified Tapco Galil handguard, and threading the muzzle and using a birdcage type flash hider. A bullet guide and appropriate 922R parts will be going in it as well. Any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks folks! Rickey
  10. bohound, thank you for taking the time and effort to document Marion's transformation. You've given me a lot of ideas for my .223 Saiga and in particular you answered my question in regards to folding units and receiver blocks. I now know exactly what I need to complete my folder. Thanks again!

    Folding Stock question

    So you've used the compact receiver block and in addition to looking better it's a more sturdy unit, right? I've got a Dremel and I'm not afraid to use it. Damn, that sounded like some cornball western movie line! LOL! Anyway, once I convert this Saiga it'll never see the original Saiga stock, but won't this affect mounting a standard fixed stock later on down the line? So, once I do this I'll be limited to Ace stocks, with or without the folder mechanism, right? Edit: Well gang, I just finished reading bohound's thread and she did exactly what I'm thinking about doing.
  12. Folks, I recently bought a 20" barreled .223 Saiga, the IZ-110, and am thinking about converting it to resemble a Galil. I would like to use the Ace 8 1/2" long skeleton stock and their folder unit. My question is in regards to the Ace stamped AK receiver blocks. One of them, the AKRBC or compact receiver block requires cutting the tang off the back of the rifle. The other one is the AKRBU or universal receiver block, and from what I can gather from Ace's literature, it doesn't require you to cut the tang off. Although I'm not completely dead set against it I'd prefer to not cut the tang off. Does anyone have any experience with either of these receiver blocks? I had considered the Tapco unit but don't like the weird angle that it mounts at. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance folks!

    Where are all the .223's?

    Try here http://www.centerfiresystems.com/SAI-223.aspx Give them a call, they might have or be able to get a 20" for you.

    Canted Front Sight

    Damn! That's it, huh?! Might be time for me to shoot this rifle and then maybe do some minor gunsmithing. I had no idea it was this straight forward. Thank you ChileRelleno!
