  1. What the title says From what I'm reading Mike is working full time now and doesn't have a lot of time for stuff like this, if I can get one from him I'd dig that but I also don't want to bother him at the same time, so if anyone has a spare hit me up.
  2. Yeah, my previous one needed the mag latch mod, the mag tab was surprisingly thin and the catch was too long to lock my Tapco galils. This one, no such requirement. No complaints.
  3. The pin is any a couple thou bigger at the end that normally has a head. The pin is ~0.175-0.177" except for that step at the end where it's ~0.159-0.160". Haven't seen one like that before. Not really a bad idea though.
  4. I'll put some up tonight after work.
  5. Just so you know, the .223 Saiga is actually a 5.56x45. It's the civilian version of the AK101. Izhmash marked them .223 because of goofy Russian gun laws around military rounds. This was confirmed by RAAC in the early days also it's in the stickies. Also the Tapco and SGMs are generally good enough for me.
  6. Just curious if anyone else has had this experience with newer Saigas. This is the second Saiga .223 I've converted. The first one had uniform diameter trigger and trigger bar pin/rivets and needed the mag catch filed to take anything but proprietary mags. My new one is a May 2014 build. The rivets are smaller (0.175" instead of closer to 3/16") and have a shoulder at the expansion point (0.160"). There isn't a head on the left side of the rivet like my first Saiga. Also, the mag catch is apparently already milspec. It looked like my factory mag had a thicker than usual tab so I tried locking
  7. If I had a lathe I'd just make an adapter to M24. It's like the CNCWarrior ones but a larger thread. The OD of my protector is ~.7", could probably cleanly thread it to M18 as long as the threads aren't too deep. Just realized I seriously resurrected a thread. More proof I guess that it's been a while since I've been on the forum.
  8. Stupid question time! Really only relevant to people who have this rail (or one of the clones)... I'm in the process of fabbing a custom bullpup rig for my Vepr 7.62x39, and the UTG S-12 quadrail has a long enough rail to meet my needs if I turn it backwards so it reaches forwards instead of back along the receiver... Does anyone who has one know if this quadrail will clamp down enough to fit a Vepr? I don't care if I have to make minor modifications to fit, I've been doing that with other stuff already... Thanks in advance guys!
  9. Hmm, maybe it would have made more sense to ask this in the Saiga-12 category... that's where I meant to put it. I'm totally awake this morning /s

  11. More or less what the title says. I'm thinking about fabbing my own custom bullpup kit for my Vepr, but I'd like a set of irons for it and I kind of like the extensions that come with the AKU94. If anyone has a set of them laying around that they aren't using I'd be interested in throwing you a little cash for them... failing that I'd be interested in the AKU kit if anyone has an extra one of them either. Seems they're getting harder to find so I'm not holding my breath. Thanks all!
  12. A pic of the mods? I'd have to take it all back apart to get at it, but next time I clean my rifle (REAL cleaning, not just boresnake), I'll put one up.
  13. I live in Michigan... I'll have to measure, but if I'm not mistaken, a sidefolder would make this into a pistol... and that whole legal hoopla is a bit muddled for me to feel like wading into... I'd settle for a good skeleton stock, even if it didn't fold. Best bet for what I want would be one of the Bonesteel folders... but $$$...
  14. Title says it all. Had to take ~25 thou off each side (overkill) and ~30 thou off the top bracket, but it fits now, nice and snug. If you have a MI handguard laying around and access to a vertical mill, this is no sweat. My Vepr is now 922r compliant, between the FCG, flash hider, and handguard. Woo!
  15. Yeah, they're the same. Sounds like you were either lucky or a lot more experienced with taps... I hadn't tapped anything in about five years, back when I was taking prereq's for CNC classwork. It ought to drop right in when you get it.
  16. Got access to a bridgeport and milled it out to fit my Vepr, so no longer available. Sorry. Thanks for looking anyway!
  17. Will this work on a Vepr? What is the width of the receiver insert (I ask because I've noticed most AK stocks need their width shaved to fit)? I'm assuming a mechanism to provide support in place of a square receiver would be necessary, since modern Veprs are slant-cut...
  18. Mine were both 6-32, the 2-flute HSS from Dinzag and a 3-flute HSS from the local industrial supply shop. I was hesitant to use the 3-flute since I don't have access to a tap extractor with 3 fingers, only a 2-finger model at work. If I couldn't get it threaded with the cheapos I'd bought (I got 2 sets just in case), I was going to upsize it and use an 8-32, but didn't end up needing to. Btw, the guide works flawlessly and hasn't jammed on me yet over ~120 rounds split between fmj and sp from milsurp mags.
  19. One drill bit, three taps, what seems like a gallon of tapping fluid, three nights, and a lot of profanity later... I finally have my BG installed on my 7.62x39. I haven't test-fired it yet, but hand-cycling dummy rounds works great with both a Tapco and a milsurp... Others have warned about thicker metal and the job taking longer on a Vepr, I apparently didn't take it fully into consideration. I kept getting it tapped about 7/8 of the way and then it would stick... and I'd back it off, blow out the hole and clean the tap, more fluid, and... snap! First tap was the 2-flute from Dinzag, second
  20. Sure... although I'm not sure why you'd want to hurt your sight radius with that long of a barrel... 1: It's discontinued, and from the company correspondence I received when I first asked about it, they have no intention of making them again. 2: I ended up selling the rifle, but it was a pretty good block, right height and dimensions and everything. It does not have the m24 threads like a Bulgarian, and also does not have a bayonet/accessory lug. I... think there are only two things really. It was a nice block. I'm totally happy with my Vepr though, so I don't really miss it much.
  21. Finally got a pic on my trigger job off my phone so here it be. You can see what I had to remove, but it gives full travel in my Vepr. Have to admit, it is a little bit more crisp. Has a little bit of a rough pull on travel, but I think I just need to polish the contact points on the hooks....
