    Vepr 308 Front Sight Base

    I know this is a bit of thread necromancy but oh well. If you're still looking for a FSB, Dinzag appears to be making them. http://dinzagarms.com/saiga_762x39/akfsb.html . I haven't tried them for the Vepr specifically but I have one on my Saiga 12 that works just fine.

    Help with putting wood furniture of my Saiga-12

    I wouldn't count on being able to get a gas tube that works. Even if you manage to get a tube with the retainer on it, the upper handguard will block the rear sight. The problem isn't the tube, but the rear sight block. The answer is the Dinzag gas tube and RSB. Dinzag is a good guy and his products are top notch. The only question is if you want to spend the money on it. You can send in your old hardware to him for a discount. Make sure your handguard and stock fit well. I had to do some pretty extensive dremel work on my lower handguard and my stock had enough wobble in it that part of it split off. Ironwood made it right though. Over all, I think it's worth it. It's a fun project and you get to meet some of our better forum vendors.

    LINCH on a Saiga-12?

    I did a quick search for "dust cover" in the S12 forums and these two threads seemed relevant: http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?/topic/75844-what-top-covers-fit/ http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?/topic/77174-saiga-12-dust-cover/ They make it sound like opening up the ejection port is the only real mod needed to make most any AK dust cover fit a S12. Not having done it myself, I can neither confirm nor deny. Cobra, could you please comment on what sort of difficulty you encuntered in fitting one? Did it require more than just dremel work?

    That's what I was afraid of, that the dust cover on a S12 is just too different. I haven't tried to modify a rifle dust cover for mine but I knew some here had. However, while I agree that some of our vendors, Cobra included, do excellent work in this department, I think the LINCH system has two advantages. First, it's easily reversible and doesn't require modifications to the hard to find bolt carrier. Second, it's non-reciprocating so no risk of bruised knuckles or noses. Hopefully it will be adapted to the Saiga-12 eventually.

    This might be old news but I just saw this video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otwCn7gEsDA ... and it got me wondering. How hard would it be to make one fit a S12?

    Wood Furniture Hardware...

    Dinzag is the place to go. I went this route too and it's not cheap but the results are amazing. You'll need a modified gas tube/rear sight base and upper and lower retainers at the least. If you intend to use irons, you'll also need a new front sight block (I believe it's the tall one). You can send in your stock gas tube to help offset the costs or keep it and pay a little extra if you want to be able to return your S12 to its original configuration. See http://www.dinzagarms.com/saiga_12/aks12.html . I also needed to do some pretty extensive dremel work to get the lower handguard to fit on the receiver side. The last details I needed were a sling swivel on the buttstock and a pistol grip screw and nut. It's a good project but I'm sure you won't be disappointed with the results.

    Are solenoid operated triggers legal?

    Comparison of Aftermarket Mags

    I have both SGM and AGP mags. They've all worked flawlessly for me so reliablity isn't a concern. I like the AGP mags slightly more though because they don't have the bulky floorplate that the SGM mags do.

    Bracket to mount forearm to a S12?

    I think this is what you're looking for http://dinzagarms.com/saiga_12/bor1220.html Dinzag is awesome. He makes a retainer for the upper handguard too.

    Started getting FTE with Autoplug

    Also, try a different gas puc if you have one. I was getting FTE's with the twister puc before I realized that it was a piece of crap. It was a little too small for the gas block so gas was leaking past it, gas that sould have been used to cycle the action. No matter how tight I screwed down the auto plug it would still happen. When I went back to the stock russian puc I had no problems. In fact, my auto plug is now screwed almost all the way out. What a difference a puc makes.

    Moving to California on Military orders, oh no!

    Actually, the 10-round limit is not as bad as the mag locks. Pain in my balls. Luckily both of those are currently being challenged in the courts. In the mean time, have fun in 10-round increments. We need more people here to stick around and be annoyed by it rather than moving away. Otherwise the legislature gets what it wants. And fuck those guys.

    Actually it's totally legal to have disassembled "high capacity" magazines in CA. They're usually called rebuild kits and they're pretty common. You can even buy them at many gun stores. When the mags are disassembled they're just a bunch of parts and don't qualify as an ammunition feeding device. Just don't assemble them in state or you have comitted a felony. Flash hiders are ok too as long as you have a mag lock. You can have all the "evil" features you want as long as you have a mag lock and you meet the length requirements. Definitely check out the AW flow charts on calguns.net and keep in mind that there are significant differences between semi-automatic rifles and shotguns. CA is onerous, but you can still have fun here.

    1) Install a radlock or other "bullet button" 2) pin or replace any folding stock 3) disassemble any mags greater than 10 rounds Done.
