    Bullpup Saigas?

    http://www.centerfiresystems.com/STKAKA-BP.aspx will this kit work on my 223 or 12??? how hard would it be to make fit? I may pick up one of these kits from Centerfire tomorrow when I pick up my S12's that finally came in..... I'm definetly gonna try to take a look and compare it to the Saiga's no matter what.... I think a bullpup 12 would just be AWESOME

    Popularity of Saiga 12 (not aft related)

    first time I heard about them was from a friend who told me about this 'weird mag=fed shotgun' so I started researching and found the Saiga family of shotguns. I went to some shows and shops but couldn't find one. Finally I talked to the counter-guys at one of the shops and they told me that they could order me one. after that, it was all downhill....

    How to make saiga12 shoot faster..

    Red Star Arms fully adjustable trigger you may have to modify your safety selector to clear it and work correctly, but its TOTALLY worth it.... I LOVE mine I have mine adjusted so that I have a super light takeup and hard, crisp break with no overtravel

    Stock for Saiga 12 Factory setup

    Nope, you can move the trigger group without cutting the tang, the only reason you have to cut the tang is to install certain stocks, you cut the tang, weld on a backplate and mount the stock that way. With other stocks you simply unbolt your factory stock, slide it out, slide in the new stock and screw it in solid.... piece of CAKE

    You dont have to cut the tang to do a folding stock conversion. Just look at Carolina Shooter Supply, he's got stocks that'll bolt right on no cutting required....

    Best factory (non-conversion) buttstock?

    you're worried about close quarters and you're workin with a 21" barrel??????? I'm sorry but you are contradicting yourself all over the place on this one.... anyway, to your questions. All you need to get is a 'trigger set' which will come with hammer and trigger, Red Star Arms makes a really good adjustable one, but you'll have to grind the side of the hammer to get the BHO to fit, as you will with the Tapco trigger, Tromix and Dinzag both have pre-ground ones that work well also (I have a Tromix in my shotgun)- The tromix kit also comes with a 'shepards crook' to lock the pins back in, I have used e-clips, and also cotter pins.... all methods work so far, haven't had any issues with any of them, the e-clips are easiest to get on and off though. square nut to drop through the receiver to attach the pistol grip

    I didn't even need a file on my 223, the square nut dropped right in a hole that was already in the receiver..... it took me longer to get the factory stock off than to get the rifle converted.

    personally, I wont have one of those things on any of my guns. They all feel flimsy and half-assed to me. Why is it that you are afraid of the conversion? If you are in or feel like making a trip to Central KY I will help you do the conversion if you bring the parts... its not hard and will take us 1 afternoon. it is nothing to be scared of, and really changes the way the rifle feels in the hand, the weight distribution is just TONS better.

    novice ? - size of cleaning rod for saiga .223

    I prefer bore snakes to rods, the only time that I use a rod is when I have a blemish in the bore which is VERY VERY rare. Just get a rod for a 22LR if you prefer rods, if you try a bore snake, I think you'll fall in love

    Is RedStar Arms FCG Worth the price?

    I think the only reason that they say you slap the trigger on a shotgun if because they have gotten used to a sloppy trigger that you do that to on the shotgun....

    Is RedStar Arms FCG Worth the price?

    ok, here ya go, do you want the gun to be a longer-distance super-accurate shooter? typically you want this only with rifle calibers or slug guns.... if you want the gun to be a 'quick to target and shoot' then the RSA is overkill.... that's what I'm hearing from most people.

    Is RedStar Arms FCG Worth the price?

    I found it simple enough to adjust the trigger pull before putting the safety on.... adjusted the trigger by dry-firing... when it went together it was GREAT, haven't even noticed if I can or can't adjust the screws once I got it all together

    Is RedStar Arms FCG Worth the price?

    I have a RSA trigger group and it is AWESOME. I plan to install one on all of my conversions. I bought it to go in my 223 that I am converting for an Appleseed shoot so I wanted something that would allow me to achieve a hard, clean break.... and boy does it do that.... I currently have it adjusted to a 2 stage pull, the first stage moves about 1/4" @1-2lbs, the second stage is a 12lb glass rod, no overtravel, very short reset.... I LOVE IT I would suggest that you do a little work on it as you put it in though, to make it even better. smooth and polish the contact surfaces, basically the same stuff that you do to make a tapco trigger good will make this trigger GREAT if you want an accurate trigger. All that being said, I like my tapco that is currently in my S12, I have nothing against it, I just like the adjustability and ability to make it better with the RSA

    S-12 trigger sticks need a fix

    that is supposed to catch the hammer, sounds like you may need to smooth the connecting surfaces.... sounds like your trigger may not be resetting, or that part may be broken and not releasing when the trigger resets.... I can't tell you for sure without seeing video or having it in my hands to see how everything is working.

    Floating Pin

    sounds like you didn't get the retainer back in correctly... if you used a Shepherds crook, make sure its wrapped correctly, if you used a plate, make sure its contacting the right stuff.....

    reciever poll

    Depending on what features that it would offer above the standard reciever...... I would be interested....

    When & What to Paint?

    I duracoated mine, bead blasted the barrel and all, left the internals in, masked off the general area and all openings.... it worked good I actually hung the gun by the barrel with some hay twine and tied it to the top of a door frame, the knot masked off the opening for the barrel, the other end got some shop rags stuffed in it.... also, bead blasting the bolt carrier really smoothed the action out....

    US parts count- a few questions

    Edit: I didn't read the post close enough and my advice no longer helps.... I defer to the advice given below

    grips that work with tromix diy trigger guard

    I have a CAA Ergo grip with the interchangable grip and swell..... took a little bit of filing to make it fit JUST RIGHT, but I really like it and was able to custom fit it to my hand.... I know that I'll be using the same grip when I do my 223......

    Magwell for my 223

    Hey yall, I am getting parts together to do a conversion on my 223 (have converted an S12 previously, so I know about the conversion ease). The thing I'm having issues with is finding a magwell that'll take AR mags. I know that there are some out there that will pop in, allow me to use AR mags, pop out and I can continue using the AK mags.... that is what I want. The problem that I am running into is that I can't find anywhere that still has them. It seems like Magnolia is not shipping anything and is nothin but a money hole at this point, and the 'buckmaster' (or whatever the guy's name is, I can't remember right now) just looks too AR15ish to me. I really like the design of the Magnolia as it doesn't make it look like I'm building a mutant AK/R or something... any help on where to get one of the Magnolia adapters would be GREAT!!! Thanks
