    Picture Post ,Lets see your .223!

    Darn you, I'm green with envy!!! I sold my Saiga .223 about 2-3 years ago.. Had I known something like this was going to be out I would have held onto her!

    AZA, between you and Pyzik those are by far the best S.308s I've seen yet. Kudos sir.

    This is the tacked 308 picture thread.

    My S.308 It isnt done yet, switching to a TWS rail and thinking about getting the top rail to CSS tri rail to mount a front sight because I'm thinking about doing away with the front sight and just threading the bbl and not having to worry about repinning..also in the works, playing with the idea of welding a front HK sight on the gas tube.. but I'm not too set on that idea.

    Unita mags?

    I actually had feed issues and spring binding/follower tilt with two if mine.. Bad show. My promag, csspecs and surefires work without issue. Promag mags seem to use a sturdier polymer and have slightly thicker feed lips. I want to try a high heat and extreme cold test soon with all.

    The Moe stock? not too much I think $60 from CSS? I had to dremel a little "U" shape to fit the gen 1 TWS rail rear tang portion with the MOE stock. Only reason I'm sticking with the Gen 1 TWS rail on this set up is they are getting hard to come by seeings how the new GEN 2 TWS rail is out (My Gen 2 is mounted on my Draco SBR) The Gen 1 rail might be kind of like a collectors item in 5-10 years.. provided we can still own firearms by then. haha.

    ProMag 308 Mags..?? Anyone try or have one??

    I've got some semi quick visual reviews for both the 10 & 25 round mags. With some of the 25 round mags I ran into feed issues when loaded to the full capacity. They work optimally at 20 rounds. I wish promag would come out with a 15 or 20 rounder with a tad shorter length. 10 rounders functioned flawlessly.., only issue, they cost more than the 25 rounders!

    BHO mod (post conversion)

    VR6Shooter, awesome job! With my first saiga .308 I welded the bho shut and sort of regretted it. On my next S.308 build I think I'll go for much of what you did with the angle of the bho in relation to the trigger. Kudos brother! Happy shooting.

    SBS/SBR Pictures

    My little Draco SBR with BAKELITE furniture, A TWS 2nd gen Dog Leg Rail, And a Krebs Enhanced Safety lever. I'm not a fan of the pistol grip plastic isn't very forgiving to the hand. (I also have big hands) I'm thinking the US PALM Bakelite Orange Pistol Grip? Also on the way is a rear flip sight and a CNCWorrior 4 piece Flash Hider. ..If they shipped it?

    My newly 3/4 finished Saiga .308 (My other woman) All she needs now is a muzzle brake. Haven't had the time or narrowed down the right brake. Also, the method of attachment for the Carolina Shooters Supply Tri-Rail as well as a Uinta 20 round magazine. The rear portion is a Magpul UBR stock as well as an ACE internal adapter and AR stock adapter. Happy with ALL products as well as companies that supplied the products used.

    Introducing the u308 20 round Magazine

    I received my Uinta Mags just yesterday 5/18/11. They feed/function fantastically. I really like the look and feel however, and this is just probably because my eyesight is poor.. but the feed lips on the Uinta mags look slightly thinner than that of the SureFire mags. Still give them a 5/5. GREAT customer service, shipping time and to boot.. an excellent product! My photos to come on 5/22/11 of my 3/4 finished Saiga .308 with Uinta mag
  13. Trust me, CSS got this rail RIGHT! I ordered mine the minute after logging onto S-12forum. It came and I've mounted it, the only reason I don't have pics with my testimonial is I'm waiting on my UBR stock which I'm also slapping on her... I've also got some Unita Mags coming. SO stoked! I'll make her look pretty before I post pics. But back to the rail. Yes it doesn't use the gas block pin as a means of mounting, it used an even better mount that wraps around the barrel behind the gas block, then through the rail screws into the forearm as well as that rear screw towards the trunnion. (which for you who may not know, is threaded to that of your original forearms rear screw, no new parts needed.) BUY ONE, BUY ONE NOW! Pictures to come!

    Picture Post,lets see your 7.62x39

    I finally have what I consider to be a picture post worthy Saiga 7.62x39 I'm still considering slapping on the TWS 2nd gen rail to extend the sight radius.. but that may be overkill. Why mess with a good thing, right? Eh'Who knows.. Maybe when I've got some extra cash. Whats she's got on her: 24x1.5mm Front sight base K-var 7.62x39 24mm muzzle brake CAA gen 2 aluminum tube stock (has the storage compartment) Magpul MOE stock DPH forearm, by far beats my other AKM rails I have out of the water, extended length, solid mounting, cheaper than the Ultimak rails @ only $139.95, and I can still access my gas tube if need be (Unlike the Midwest industries rail!) Regular AK grip, haven't found the right PG yet, I have Ergos on all my other rifles, but I'm still looking for something new and exotic for this one.

    This is the tacked 308 picture thread.

    (Bottom Rifle) Just slapped on the EMA aluminum buffer tube and the Magpul MOE stock. Looks and feels GREAT! Now I just need to attach a new FSB or thread the barrel.. (I've yet to decide which route) And I'm sad to say, but I'm letting the top rifle go. Well, maybe..
