  1. I made some shims out of Delrin and adhered them in place with Loctite adhesive. The have been in place for 4 yers now. I can't remember the exact Loctite number I used but it was a cyanoacrylate. Checkout Loctite #454 or #410. I used #770 primer on the surfaces first then I adhered them in place and put a magazine in and left it to cure for a day. I called Loctite tech support and told them what I was doing. They gave me the numbers and sent me samples of each product.

    cheap .308 ammo?

    True, I've never shot a .308 from my 308 Saiga yet, just 7.62x51

    My 308

    The bolt isn't polished. It's actually finished in the same material as the rest of the rifle only in silver. It's a baked enamel type of finish. What brand did you use? I'm thinking that's a better option than bead-blasting for me. No worries about rust or buying the blasting equipment. Nice setup! It was finished at AK- USA.
  4. Take a look at the pics in the 308 forum under the topic "My 308, Part 31". See if this is what you want. http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?showtopic=11294

    My 308

    It's the original FSB with an adapter welded onto it. The compensator was then screwed onto the adapter and (unfortunately because it was done before Sept 2004) the compensator was welded onto the adapter.

    It's a Harris brand. You can get them most anywhere. It's nice but I don't use it much, I get better accuracy by hand.

    I know I was supposed to post pics a couple years ago but better late than never!
  11. I've not heard of a Saiga that was anything other than a semi-auto, that's the way their designed. Take off the top cover and remove the bolt carrier. Is there a piston attached to it? If so then you're on your way.
  12. Power Customs Inc. 29739 Highway J Gravois Mills, Mo 65037 Randal Power (573)372-5684 Call him, there is a model for the 308. There is a difference in the hammer.
  13. The RPK top cover from K-Var is the same as the original Saiga. It has no ribbing and is a little thicker. http://www.k-var.com/product.asp?0=211&1=215&3=129
  14. Check this out. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...7146209125&rd=1 While you're there have a laugh at the prices mags are fetching.
  15. Which Harris bi-pod did you use? How is it attached?

    muzzle breaks?

    I have installed a muzzle brake.
  17. From a manufacturers point of view, anything other than what they already have is not economically or practically feasable. The 308 is built as a hunting or sporting weapon it is not a military weapon for the manufacturer so why would it need a hi-cap mag. Additionally, the mag is single stack and somewhat tapered at the front and therefore so is the magwell in the rifle. Hi-cap 308 mags (M1A1, AR10) are more of a box and are double stack. It would be a major undertaking to convert this rifle (if at all) to take double stack mags, which is really the only practical way to have a hi-cap mag in this weapon. Just my two cents.
  18. Shouldn't be too much longer, had to send it out for some special work.
  19. If you want to know when the 308 will be available here's what you do. Call sharon Bell at EAA and ask her when the Saiga 308's will be coming. When I wanted one I called her and I kept in touch with her for about 6 months until the last batch came in. She will tell you what she has on order and when the boat is due in. Just keep in contact with her and you will know the latest. Hell, when she told me they had arrived I called CDNN and told them what I knew cuz they hadn't even heard about it yet. Here's the contact info: European American Armory Corp. P.O. Box 1299 Sharpes, Fl 32959 (321) 639-4842 (800) 536-4442 Sharon Bell 226
  20. If your AK originally had a single hook then you have to cut out the slot in the trigger opening of the receiver to accomodate the extra hook. Chinese AK's (MAK90) usually come with double hook FCG's but most European AK's do not. The hook is not the usual cause of trigger slap, the disconnector is. This won't be the cause with your G2 as it has the correct dimensions.
  21. Too bad you didn't get one a couple years ago. My AK103 cost $595.00 Just teasing
