  1. Any members with converted Saiga .223s that still have their original 10 rounders kicking around, please give me a shout. Thanks! Carl
  2. You're right on the money, IPSC45. Turns out, Dinzag sent me a 6/32 drill and tap with an 8/32 screw. The screw was so small that I didn't pick up on the fact that it was the wrong size. I got tired of waiting to hear back from Brian so I just picked up a stainless 6/32 x 3/8" button head screw and popped it in there with some blue Loctite. Thanks for the replies, guys!
  3. They don't seem to be. I tested both the provided screw and the one I had on hand with a nut, they go together just fine.
  4. Okay, since hi-cap mags for unmodified IZ-240s seem to be the Holy Grail, and because I already have plenty of AK-74 mags kicking around, I decided to bite the...uh...bullet guide and install one in my Saiga. I bought the complete kit from Dinzag, drilled, tapped, etc. No problems. But I can't start the screw to actually install the BG. I tried the supplied screw plus a 6/32 that I had on hand. No dice. They just behave like the screw is too large for the hole. I've run the tap through many times, right until it bottoms out against the receiver. Any ideas?
  5. Anybody else try the Bulgy commercial mags, with the metal liner but plastic locking tabs?
  6. Definitely agree. I've never actually seen Saiga-branded hi-caps, though. Closest I've found are SGM Tactical (AKA Surefire) mags, which I have in 7.62 and .223. But they don't seem to offer any in 5.45. The only other 5.45/30 mags with a built-in BG that I know of are the Promags. The early ones suck, though. Supposedly they have an improved version but I haven't tried those yet. Can't convert the Saigas here because of our AWB. Don't want to modify them at all, just to play it safe.
  7. Hey guys, new to the 5.45 but not to Saigas. Just curious, for those of you with factory-stock, unmodified 5.45s with no bullet guide, what are you using for hi-cap mags? Thanks in advance!
