  1. I've never used one but they seem to be frowned upon here. I'm sure most people will tell you to do it the right way. The main problem is that those kits are expensive (compared to a conversion kit), don't put the grip in the correct spot, and don't change the trigger so you still have a sloppy trigger pull.
  2. Not to bring down an awesome thread but if you're going to bash the younger generation's English maybe you should check your own grammar and spelling. "Alot" isn't a word and "better than" is what you should use when comparing things.
  3. Post your sources that claim the .308 has other parts.

  5. I trimmed down the overall length and still had interference so I notched it. It's still fully functional just the tab is smaller. I'll probably never use it but it's there if needed.
  6. Looks like the bottom number was $825 then someone squeezed in a 0, scribbled it out, then rewrote it.
  7. I had this same problem a few weeks ago with parts being out of stock. Carolina Shooters Supply gives you a list so you can piece together your own stuff. I bought a G2 trigger, trigger guard, and pistol grip nut from them and the rest of the parts from Amazon. It was better than waiting for every single piece to be available from one source. At this point you're better off ordering from two places and pay a bit extra on shipping than wait for a single source.
  8. Maybe I'm lucky but it couldn't have taken longer than 3 minutes putting it in using a flathead screwdriver and needle nosed pliers.
  9. Unfortunately folding and adjustable stocks are illegal in MA. I'm building wood furniture so I think I'll just copy the one I have on there but make it about an inch longer.
  10. I just finished my first Saiga conversion on my .308 thanks to plenty of threads here, youtube videos, and CSS / Amazon for parts. I used a modified Tapco G2 trigger group, Tapco stock, and a Hogue grip. Just some things I've noticed with my gun that I didn't see in some other threads about conversions. 1. I didn't have the rivets in the side of the gun for the original trigger. This also means that I didn't need to buy hole plugs. 2. My gun had the square hole for the pistol grip nut. I was prepared to cut my own but this must have saved me at least an hour. 3. Instead of having three r
  11. I just got a 10 rounder in the mail; Snaps in beautifully.
  12. I have a post going in the classifieds right now looking for the furniture as well. I saw a set on gunbroker for $150 this morning. I like the look of wood but for me I don't care enough to spend that much. I emailed all the recommended channels and Izhmash directly but no one has anything cheaper (that I could find). As for me, I plan on carving my own foregrip then converting so the buttstock won't be hard to get a cheap replacement for. Good luck!
  13. Still looking. Would also consider purchasing just the stock wooden foregrip.
  14. Just bought a Saiga 308 and want to replace the plastics with a matching set of wooden furniture. I'm not looking to convert to a pistol grip style; just replace the buttstock and foregrip with the wooden equivalent.
