    CAI converted/buttstock issues

    desired result=collapsible stock http://www.carolinashooterssupply.com/product_p/css-ak-tube.htm This was my choice for a collapsible stock. Easy to put on and rock solid.
  3. I opted to use the CSS ar vented handguard for my rifle. Sturdy all aluminum construction. Lightweight. Plus you can add rails where you choose. Here's s few pics to help.

    IZ-132 and 20 round mags

    CSS Ar vented handguard-lightweight, strong, lots of space to put rails if needed. My personal favorite. SGM quad rail handguard- pretty sturdy. I liked it. The stock handguard works great to. Always bolt a rail on it. Theres some nice vepr wood handguards floating around also. Last picture is not my rifle.

    IZ-132 and 20 round mags

    Yes i installed lock tite(Blue) to all my hardware on my firearms. The problem is the barrel clamp slides on the barrel when the bolt carrier group is in action. The product looks sexy and all but without a screw holding it to the reviever it just creeps forward. Trust me I tried. I even bolted a piece of metal to the wood handguard that would catch on the little tabs on the barrel of a stock saiga rifle. I even filed and sanded the back of the handguard to allow more of the wood tab to stick into the reciever in hope i could put a screw in it to hold the handguard in place. But i had no such luck... it is a quality piece but after long effort to make it work, i was not satisfied. So now it sits in with the rest of my Extra parts.

    The Handguard is very nice..BUT it would not stay put. Every time i shot the rifle it would creep forward. I tightened the barrel clamp down as tight as i felt comfortable with. Long story short, it no longer is on my rifle.. ;( I would recommend doing the full conversion to your rifle. Don't rely on a Magazine to be 922r complaint.

    Couple options.

    leave as is or switch to wood?

    can we get a weight on this build? The Handguard weighs 10oz. Fairly light for being very well built. I'll see if i can get a full weight of my rifle sometime this week.

    finished my conversion

    Right on. Looks good

    What are the best magazines for 7.62x39 VEPR's?

    I would install a Bullet Guide and use Combloc surplus steel mags. Aim still has them in stock and there prices are hard to beat for true russian military mags. Mine just showed up last week and were all unissued new magazines in great condition. Good Luck http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=MAK47R30&name=Russian+30rd+Steel+AK47+7.62x39+Magazine&groupid=15 http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=MAK47I30

    Jamming issues with a Saiga 7.62 x 39

    I dont believe its common for these rifle to jam..EVER. I never had one issue with my saiga rifle before and after conversion??? Should eat all steel case ammo hollow point or not. Maybe something is wrong with the mag. Please post pics of your mag loaded with the hollow points and standard FMJ if possible. Its possible the ammo or mag is out of spec.. that could be causing these issues.

    Damn - about $2K on an AK.

    I recommend getting the PK-01 V Red Dot. Best Military grade red dot for the price. Plus you can co-witness with your iron sights. Heres a few good right up's on some russian optics. http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_4_64/140502_Russian_Red_Dot___Non_Magnified_Optics.html http://blog.gruppa-l.com/review-pk-01v/
  16. After some research i decided to get the fab defense gl buttstock and Carolina shooters m4/ak adapter tube. I'm very impressed on the build quality of both products. CSS tube bolts right on with no modification of the tang. 3 Allen screws secure it to the receiver.(loctite screws). Fills up the back of the receiver fairly well. Thick aluminum construction. The Fab defense buttstock has zero play on this tube. Perfect in my opinion. Made in Israel. Has a unique internal recoil reducing system. I'll have to test this out to see how well it works. A few pics. Thanks
  17. You can mount rails anywhere on the handguard. I used the magpul rail that came with my forgrip.
  18. Just reporting back that the shock absorbing buttstock works great. The CSS buffer tube does raise the cheek weld up enough to make it harder to line up the iron sights though. Not a big deal but something worth mentioning.

    can tach a picitanny rail to this forearm?

    i meant like standard magpul rails Like this. Yes they can be mounted anywhere on the handguard fairly easily.
  20. The screws above my pistol grip are cosmetic only. There just to fill in the holes in my reciever. Ill take a pic when i get home. 5- 8/32x3/8 button head screws. Heres the same screws i use. I chose the Carolina shooters m4/ak adapter tube. Very well built and very secure http://store.carolinashooterssupply.com/servlet/-strse-235/Intenal-Stock-Adapter-Saiga/Detail I have rivets in mine and they interfere with the stocks I've used so far. So I'm trying to figure out if the buffer tube you used would work. I think most of my problems stem from the modification I had to make to my tube to get it to fit. Yes the buffer tube i used will not interfere with the rivets or screws above the trigger group. I'll take some pictures tonight and post them so you can see how the buffer tube fits to the receiver.
