    5.45 ammo available (as of 2 Feb 13)

    sportsmans guide last month, 2160 rounds for $300. http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=817565 maybe it will come back who knows. my back order says june 2013.
  3. like the others, package with metal parts made it into the country... the mag bodies never made it out of ukrposhtas hands. no word from FT. and he was quick with emails before, not now.

    Question on muzzle brake

    First consult the flowchart Because you are a PRK Resident: http://www.calguns.net/caawid/flowchart.pdf I dont think your angled front grip is legal without a bullet button. Next Use The 922r Calculator to determine 922r status of Saiga: http://jobson.us/922r/
  5. I think date of importation might come into play. Note that AIM surplus has these same mags @ $68 a pop, and they won't sell to ban states. they also dont sell a lot of things to ban states that they legally can
  6. still waiting for my order... :[ shipped 8/29 or 8/30 maybe this Saturday then?

    Ultimak gas tube on Saiga 5.45

    Hmm.. thanks. I hadn't considered the trouble of cleaning it. I can certainly see that as being an issue for me.. shooting up loads of cheap 7n6 is why I bought a 5.45 in the first place. Not excited about the idea of losing the rear sight for a beryl type rail either. Definately don't want a railed up forearm.. prefer wood furniture. I guess that leaves a side rail mount.. I have the UTG side rail option right now and its not too bad. However you don't really get a cheek weld at all on the rifle. I bought Jim's ultimak rail and am going to mount my primary arms micro dot gen 7.

    Where did all the ak74 mags go?

    like others have said, we bought them all. it was probably because of that cheap CAI ak74 that came with 2 or 3 bulgy mags. you can still find polish 5.45 mags which are said to be compatible with all 74 pattern rifles tapco mags arent too bad and are about the same price as a bulgarian.

    5.45 gasblock Frontsight base combo

    that is for compact rifles like the AK107 or aks-74u, i dont think it will fit your saiga because the gas system is different on those rifles.

    Russian Izhmash Plum AK74 30rd or something else?

    Local board has 12 of them for $15 ea. Those the best buy for the ones listed? I would say so i have 2 russian plum 30rnd mags and both of them are trickier to seat in the rifle than the bulgarian circle 21 30 rnd mag or factory mags that i own, however they are cooler looking. i would buy both the russian mags and bulgarian to see which works better for you.

    Has anyone used this sight on 5.45?

    get the primary arms micro red dot instead. great red dot for the money.

    final configuration of my saiga for now

    brand new saiga already has rust :O

    I field stripped my new rifle completely for the first time today, its never been fired by me and hasn't been presumably since it left Russia and i was shocked to see what looks like rust in the gas tube! there's little specks of rust like that all through the tube, and im not very happy about seeing rust in a brand new gun. i'm thinking of taking a bore brush and scrubbing the inside of that tube with CLP. is this normal for saigas?

    Best FCG Retainer and BG for the $$

    the tapco retainer worked fine in my saiga 5.45 but the krebs style retainer seems more secure. my 5.45 has a round trunnion and there is no bullet guide for the 5.45 round trunnion on CSS.

    Will I need a 5.45 bullet guide

    i had 1 failure in feeding with my Bulgarian mag out of 100 rounds, so i think yes a bullet guide is needed.

    The 5.45x39 picture thread

    and a 10/30 magazine looks good though, right? i am still having trouble with the lower handguard pivoting up and down, the nut on the handguard retainer isnt small enough to fit for me to make it go tighter.
