  1. Nevermind, I figured it out myself, well actually someone else mentioned it on another forum. The problem lies in the difference in the 45 degree and my 90 degree gas block. Since my Saiga has a 90 degree gas block, I guess the Romy tube that I was trying to make fit was for a 45 degree gas block which made the gas tube too short.
  2. Hello, I am in the process of doing a Saiga x39 hand guard conversion. I ordered a gas tube, the guy said it was Rommy. I thought any gas tube would work. But if you see from the pics, the gas tube is about 0.25" too short. It is way loose, thinking there must be a difference in the tubes. Can someone tell me what to look for next time. Will a AK47 vs AK74 gas tube be the same, please school me, thanks.
  3. Hello, I just recently purchased a Saiga IZ-132. I still need to do the conversion, and have all the parts to. The only thing I don't have, is the hand guard conversion parts. I have seen videos on you tube showing how to do it correctly by removing the FSB and gas block. I also seen the horseshoe piece that can be used, but have to notch the barrel. My question is: is there a bottom hand guard retainer that works without having to notch the barrel? I want my rifle to have the traditional AK look, however I am wondering if there is a easier way to get the same look without having to no
