  1. Retail price $800 I'm asking $500 Feel free to contact me at stevechr@ptd.net Here's a picture of the scope in its shipping box. A close up of the turret area. This is what the reticle looks like. A close up picture of a section of the included instructions. The company does a better job describing it than I could do so here's what they have to say about it: The Shepherd 3-10X40 P2 rifle scope is specifically designed for flat shooting high powered rifles. This general purpose sight is like no other rifle scope on the planet. It is far and away t

  6. I have not yet cut off the original charging handle. A few more hundred rounds down range without any problems and I may chop it off but leaving it on doesn't offend me.
  7. I had no problem witht he bore per se. It was a snug fit but not binding. The "ramp" was a major issue for me. Most of the problem was caused by the unit not sitting low enough. As a result the end of the piston was crashing into the lower ramp every time it cycled. I had to relieve the rear bottom and rear sides of the lower half so that it would sit lower. I then got busy with my trusty Dremel and reshaped the ramp so that the ramp extended all the way to to the "floor" of the wide portion of the unit closest to the receiver. This greatly lessened the angle of the ramp and elimi
  8. Yup, I've got one installed on a 16" Saiga .308. I had some installation problems that took a while to figure out. Basically the bottom and sides at the rear of the housing had to be relieved in order for the unit to sit parallel with the barrel. It needed a little filing on the rear locking surface also. Definitely not a drop in item. Once I figured out what needed to be be filed it was easy. It has functioned flawlessly since then. Makes racking the bolt easier and more natural. Does not heat up like a conventional stamped steel gas tube.
  9. I have an Ace skeleton stock on my TWS equipped S308. You'll need the Ace cheek riser. You may want to get a piece of plastic tube from the hardware store to act as a rear spacer for the riser to prevent it from sliding backwards. I had to do this with mine which has the shortest Ace stock installed on it. You can see what I'm talking about here: http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?/topic/75209-updated-308-conversion/
  10. Absolutely! I've installed two of them and have another on the way. Normally, I run them with an AImpoint on top but for load development I'll put a 3-9X scope on. It is rock steady. The trick in the design of the cover is that it uses a new recoil spring guide that has a specially shaped "button" on the back that forces the cover down under the tension of the recoil spring. Simple yet ingenious.
  11. It had to be filed a bit around the rear end for it to fit perfectly. Nothing that a common bastard file from Home Depot can't easily take care of.
  12. This rifle has been a work in progress for a couple of years. I accomplished the initial conversion quickly during which I added the pistol grip, Ace stock, and extended magazine release. More recently I've added the Texas Weapon Systems railed dust cover and the Dublin AK Systems left side, forward charging handle. In the pictures below you can see an Eotech mounted on the dust cover and a white spacer made out of PVC tube on the upper support tube of the stock. That spacer prevents the Ace cheek riser from sliding to the rear. Still to come is a piece of Picatinny rail mounted under
  13. I suspect the reason had to do with the available development time and money. In my correspondence with Dublin AK Systems I suggested building in a rail for the next generation of this device. I also suggested that it be set up so that the top of the rail would be at the exact height as the top of the rail on the Texas Weapon System's dustcover. That would allow flip up sights to be mounted fore and aft.
  14. I'm a little confused; how does putting the charging handle on the left side make the MOA of an AK the same as an M4? Only in as much as you're able to reach up with your left hand and move the bolt without havng to reach over or under the receiver., On an M16/M4 the guys are being taught to hit the left side of the charging handle with their left hand to move the bolt without losing their firing grip. In my day, we were taught to actually grasp the charging handle on both sides to make it run. As a result of the new MOA a lot of charging handles are being damaged because of the repe
