    My saiga 5.45 for a Keltec sub 2000 in .40cal?

    What spare parts do you suggest in particular?

    Lol... you're assuming too much there... I was only going to trade the rifle and maybe all the mags...

    My saiga 5.45 for a Keltec sub 2000 in .40cal?

    Well the AWB would include both of these items (Keltec sub 2000 is specifically labeled in Feinstein Bill) so that's not an issue... The idea of a trade sounded desirable because I reload .40 cal and subsequently would -=hopefully=- be insulated from an ammo shortage, can load various round of all sorts of variations (weights, speeds, tracers, etc), and it uses Glock mags which are a dime in a dozen... I want to keep my AK, but in reality the 5.45x39 might be headed towards a meek future... The most positive to keep my AK is that spare parts "should" always be available vs. the Keltec which is highly dependent on the life of Keltec. I think in the end yous guys talked me out of it... Thanks for the input!
  4. I am tempted to trade my converted 5.45 saiga (stock fore grip) for a Keltec sub 2000 in .40cal. I currently have 1200 rounds of 7n6 with 4 ak mags. I reload for .40cal too. What do you guys think?

    Putting on Muzzle brake

    Yeah this deal keeps the muzzle brake on there pretty well. I just started with threading the barrel as my option to put a muzzle device on and did not look back. It basically led me to these antics, but none-the-less, I think I came up with a suitable alternative that allows me to have a myriad of muzzle devices with different thread patterns fit to my rifle.

    Putting on Muzzle brake

    These are the pictures of what I tried to explain I did. The adapter is the device that is holding my brake with the set screw (the base of the screw is blunt and not pointed). So far this works great... until I lose the screw! But they are sold in packs of 2 at Home Depot for like $2.

    Putting on Muzzle brake

    I went the route of cutting the shroud and then threading the barrel to 14mm X 1mm, LH. I then put one of the adapters on with red loc-tite. The rifle can take the typical RH AK74 brakes, but would back off occasionally during rapid fire and cause keyhole'ing. So I got a full day workout taking adapter off (it was extremely tough from loc-tite!) and drill/tapped the adapter to accept a set screw to hold the brake in place. I used the little notched on the base of the brake to fit the set screw. For some reason I thought this method to be easier (and sturdier) than cutting off the whole sight block and replacing it with a new one. This is completely a round about way to accept a traditional AK74 muzzle brake, but I enjoy all the manipulations I successfully accomplished! Whew!

    hot barrel poi drift issue

    So while on a patrol with your cold rifle, you see some Tangos ahead and can't hit squat because your rifle isn't hot enough to zero in? Sorry to "troll" but I do not get this ideology.

    I NEED A M14X1 LH TAT AND DIE

    Do you plan on putting an adapter for 24x1RH muzzle device BCOWANWHEELS?

    Saiga 5.45

    I am seconds on the handheld drill to tap. I did it just fine and had no lock ups... The key is to use cutting oil (or the oil I used to clean my rifle!) and go slow! Like one revolution per 3 seconds. My hand held drill did have a level attached to the back so drilling centrally was not an issue...

    Love the 5.45

    Don't stock up! Share! Limit 2 per customer! I constantly wonder how much AIM has left... I can only imagine too if any of those half ass revolutionaries over there in Libya got some of our stocks of Russian surplus! We actually aim our shots!

    Saiga Conversion Info including first Range Report

    Check out amazon for a cheap NC star sight adjustment tool... its like $5 bucks with shipping if you have prime http://www.amazon.com/SKS-Front-Sight-Ajustment-Tool/dp/B000TN1QVU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1319775309&sr=8-2 Also, judging by you 50 yard and 100 yard targets, when you battle sight at 25 yards, make sure you obviously hit center, but roughly 1.5 inches LOW! This will give you about an inch low at 50, and dead on at 100. Your targets were zeroed in a little too high.
  13. Aesthetics vs functionality (Capital "F" on that is important!). Get a Saiga 5.45 for cheap, get the minimal parts to convert (about $100-120 roughly) and you have an "ugly" (atypical) AK that is just as accurate as the newly ak-100s that have the furniture on them.... Information is based off of my AK 5.45 saiga with just a Tapco trigger group, trigger guard, stock, hogue grip (for 108 w/shiping) vs a buddy's fully arsenal sgl for close to $700. YMMV... Self convert is the funniest and self gratifying way to get an accurate 5.45 AK74 IMO
  14. FT being a contributor would allow him sell more potentially. Incentives would be there to refine his methods of delivery, and we all have a connection (legally) to a resource thats only gonna get harder to find (@ wholesale prices at least). Kinda curious if this site has any foreign contributors?...
  15. Apparently the Ukrainian puh-lice took my package according to FT. I would like to let everyone know that I successfully got my money back from FT. THIS DUDE IS VERIFIED LEGIT IMHO. I can finally stop being skeptical of FT and will do anything possible to help streamline his sales so our packages do not get seized or lost. We really need to help him become a contributor to the site.
