  1. I used this a few days ago. Was ridiculously easy, and I'm not very mechanically inclined. I didn't install the bullet guide as I'd already paid someone else to do that part (that went beyond my comfort level).
  2. I think you are correct. I just took it all apart, paid more attention to that, and put it back together. Issue seems resolved. I actually got really lucky by doing all of this, as I realized the front river that holds the hammer in place wasn't through the bolt hold open. Thanks!
  3. Greetings. Just did my first conversion for a friend. Stupid easy thing to do. Had no idea . Anyways, after everything was put back together we realized the rivet that holds the trigger in place isn't all the way flush, and we cant get it all the we flush either. I'm concern that this thing will wiggle outward during firing. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a non-issue? Thanks!
  4. This is something I was wondering, as it makes a lot of sense.
  5. By "both" do you mean tame muzzle flip as well as suppress flash?
  6. Do surpressors kill muzzle flip and flash?
  7. Thanks, but i know he wants to stay with a flash hider as opposed to a brake.
  8. Greetings. So with the help of you folks I was able to thread a friends barrel recently on a partially converted saiga. I say "partially" because it takes AK mags, but the rear of the gun only has a tapco type stock with the trigger in its original place. So we went to shoot the rifle yesterday and I noticed a fair amount of muzzle rise and a lot of time in between shots. Now keep in mind Im more of a pistol guy and have no formal rifle training other than stance and keeping the elbows down tight, and the owner doesnt have much more than that. All said we got wondering what (in addition to training) what would help the most with this? 1) A full conversion? The logic being rear hand placement would be closer to the center of the gun. 2) Red dot? 3) A fore grip add-on like this one. I know he wants to avoid a vertical fore grip as they're hideous looking. I also know he's looking to stay with a flash hider as opposed to a muzzle brake. Thanks!
  9. Returned the POS die, got one from CNC, worked without a hitch. Thanks to all!
  10. Hey I really appreciate it SH! However, if this finally goes OK I may do another in a couple weeks. That said I'm just going to purchase one from CNC this weekend. Thanks again!
  11. I'm certainly not above admitting to human error if that's in fact the case. I'll see about a vice to rule that out as the gun moving is certainly a possibility. More questions: If I make a few turns, at what point will I want to unscrew it to see if I'm making threads or just doing more damage to my barrel? I keep unscrewing it to see how things are going. I assume I'm not stripping threads so long as I don't pull it straight off, right? Here is a pic of my die. Wagnikov mentioned one side is usually tapered, but as you see in the pic both side of mine are. I know it's custom to work letter side toward the muzzle, but could any damage be done by trying it letter side up just for kicks? I can't look at this again until the weekend. Of course I'll keep you all posted -- you've certainly earned it!!! Thanks to all!
  12. Lettering was towards the muzzle. After a closer inspection, I don't think any of the teeth are damaged as it looks identical on all sides.
