  1. Its by feel really, just used a 3/16 bit until It went through the gas block and front sight, you still have to press them off after.
  2. Old welders trick, get a piece of flat copper at least 1/8 thick, thicker works best. Clamp the copper on the inside of the hole and the welding rod or wire does not stick to it.
  3. Her AR has a brake, practaclly zero recoil. She still prefers the feel of the lttle Saiga, she says she likes it, feels like shes shooting a powerfull rifle not a toy.
  4. I was going to buy a Krebs but they were sold out, I called Lenny Bolton, his GBS only comes with a 45 degree gas port, Saigas have a 90. I have been welding for over 30 years so I figured it why not give it a try. The welding was the easy part, grinding and sanding it smooth was the real challenge.
  5. Yes re-rivet the rear trunnion were I removed the scope mount. The grip is a US Palm. http://www.us-palm.com/index.php?option=com_products&view=product&id=2 The dust cover was an attempt at getting the TechSight cover from rattling and not being such a pain to get off the rifle.

I recently bought another used Saiga so I decided to build her a lightweight AK. I wanted to lighten the front so I welded the front sight on the gas block. We decided she does not need a flash hider so no muzzle device of any kind was installed. She likes aperture sights, I had a TechSight from another build that got swapped for a TWS gen II top cover. I like the TWS top cover and do not like the rattle of the TechS
  8. Sorry about the crappy cell pic. I used a VLTOR adapter and a Magpul CTR with cheek riser, works great.
  9. Anyone have a preference or experience with one or all of these mounts? From what I have been reading these are the best choices. 1-Molot Vepr mount 2-KAVAR KV-04S 3-Belarus BP02
  10. I did a search and could not find a specific topic on a .308 conversion. Can someone help out a newbie and show me where to find the info for the removal of the bottom plate by the trigger? Or a complete "how to" for just the .308? Thanks.
  11. Looking for a copy of Guns & Ammo complete book of the AK47 from 2009.
