  1. WTS If you want a professionally built very special Type 3 milled rifle using original military parts and barrel, this is it so don't miss out! This is a very nice 7,62x39mm Type 3 milled rifle that was custom-built with all original mint new military parts on a rare high quality Bulgarian SLR-100H machined receiver that was imported in the early 2000's. These receivers were factory made and have very little in the way of needless markings on them. The builder was gunsmith Dean Davidson, a perfectionist and master of his craft. The receiver was carefully polished and blued to match th
  2. OK, I'm very new to this. I just bought a Saiga 7.62 x 39 IZHMASH AK-47. Obviously I hate the stock & foregrip where do I start to look for replacing these items, also need magazines as it only came with a 5 round? I want to make this look nice without the cheap plastic parts, but do not want to go the wood route either. (Conversion Kits, pistol grips, etc) I've started watching youtube vids & reading what I can, don't understand the Gas concept. I apologize in advance, I I am a true novice on this. Any & all help is greatly appreciated. BJ
  3. I never thought I'd spend about $2K on a rifle, let alone an AK. But I did when all is said and done. DAYUM! SGL21 $1000 Nato stock $15 (Warsaw Pact was just too short for my gorilla arms) Optics mount $60 PA green laser $45 (it was on sale LOL) PA light and tape switch $95 Light mount $18 MI SS Universal Quad Rail $150 Hogue pistol grip $27 Tactical case $100 GOOD front sight tool $35 Tool kit just for the AK $25 Mags $360 +/- Ammo $several hundred bucks Of course I had to decide to buy an AK at a bad time aka inflated prices, but I figured better late than never. Most of
  4. Hey guys so i picked up a few new saigas and have converted many of them and done the bullet guides and the whole shebang. I am now interested in changing the front sight post and gas block with ones that have bayonet lugs on them and while doing this installing a regular lower handgaurd retainer. Can this be done without a press?
  5. Hey guys check out my Ak in action. ...and no thats not full auto i can pull the trigger pretty fast though.
  6. Hey guys so I am wondering how rare it would be for a 7.62x39 Saiga Ak to fire without being fully locked into battery. That small tail on the end of the bolt carrier I understant is just for that so that the hammer hits that until the bolt is locked into battery. Can that tale wear down to the point where this could happen and if it did happen would it act as if the rifles headspacing was off and blow the gun up and possibly your face?
  7. Hey guys I got a deal on a Citadel 1911. I hear nothing but good things about these pistols. Does any body know anything about these bad boys. And I dont know much at all about the beautiful 1911's but do the barrels have feed ramps built into them or is it something else to help feed the ammo? (kind of a weird question i guess).
  8. Hey guys I need someone to slap the shit outta me. I am thinking of selling my ak (the one i posted pics of) to buy another pistol and get my ccw. I know deep down i really dont wanna sell it and i know ill miss the hell outta it. this is my favorite gun and hobby so someone talk me outta of it please.
  9. So heres my beauty.. ..and heres another..by the way those are all 10 round blocked mags with 30 round bodies. So what do you all think?
  10. He helped to create a series of highly popular videos on YouTube. His real name was Keith Ratliff, but his fans knew him as one of the people behind "FPSRussia". The video clips on the channel, where a friend of his named Kyle Myers used an exaggerated Russian accent while firing all sorts of exotic firearms, have generated a total of well over 500 million views. Ratliff's last FPSRussia video, uploaded on January 3rd and shown above, shows Myers doing what he did best; firing a DRD Paratus-18. The video also appears to be uploaded on the same day that the police in Carnesville, Georgia f
  11. Hey guys so i noticed when i changed my muzzle brake from a 74' style brake to the traditional slant brake the weapon shot a bit higher than it did with the heavier 74' style brake. Does this make sense?
  12. Hey guys why cant i post pics. it lets me browse, then add the pic but i cant "attach file". used to be able to click the button but now i am unable to.
  13. Hey guys so I heard that on our Saiga 7.62x39 Ak's, the barrel is bored out of a 5.45x39 (ak-74) barrel to a .30 cal (7.62x39). So does that mean that our barrels are thinner than other ak-47 barrels? Ive been looking at it and it looks pretty thin for the caliber of bullet its shooting.
  14. Hey guys just wondering what you all think. Diane Frankenstiend is gonna reissue the assault weapon ban. Do you think it will pass?
  15. Hey guys so after hearing some rediculus info from someone i know i gotta ask about it. He was saying it would be a good idea to get a spare set of rivets if you own a saiga. How likely is it for one of the rivets to come loose or egg the reciever on a saiga 7.62x39? I dont think they would ever come loose, rivets are freakin tough from what i understand. Sorry for polluting the forum with this crap but i had to ask. Thanks for any input.
  16. Hey guys so i got the ak-47 vented gas tube i was talking about earlier in the week. i filed in the correct spot (top side of the locking side) and it fits solid without the tension ring that was on the saiga tube. I took the ring off and tried it anyway on the ak-47 tube and it makes no difference so i just left it off. Is it snug without the ring because the ak-47 tube is snugger than the 74 style tubes?
  17. So I was wondering where i can take my ak (7.62x39) and use it to shoot in a competition. I have shot tens of thousands of rounds through the ak platform and its time to put my skills to the test. I unfortunatly live in California (humboldt county) and am looking for somewhere semi-near by to compete. Any help is appriciated as always.
  18. So today I was shooting at my range and I got a squib for the first time. I am shooting Tulammo 7.62x39. I have shot thousands upon thousands of rounds with nothing more than a delayed round. I was lucky enough to have it happen on my last round. Has anybody ever experienced anything like this will Tulammo?
  19. Hey guys had a question. I'm wondering if the firing pin should be struck flush by the hammer or should the hammer sit flush on the bolt. My hammer strikes the pin flush but seats on the bolt at a very slight angle. Its kinda causing the end of the bolt to mash just a little bit. Dont think its serious but you never know.
  20. hey guys another question from Spet. So i bought a bunch of tapco 30 rnd ak mags and some steel romanian ak mags. Well i already sanded the tab on the tapcos to fit the standard saiga mag catch. i have a bunch of saiga mags as well. I want to file the mag catch other the tab on the steels so that my ak will be strait ak-47 that will take military mags but i want the other mags to fit and work well since i have a bunch..when i file the mag catch to fit the steel ak mags will all my other ones still fit and feed properly? thanks.
  21. Hey guys so i just converted another Saiga 7.62x39 and it turned out beautifuly. What i was wondering is does the thing need to be broken in and the reason i ask is because as the piston makes it way into the gas block it kinda stiffens up. I think its because the piston is still stiff and hasnt loosened up yet as they do after about 500 rounds or so. I hope I explained this good enough for some good input. Thanks.
  22. Hye guys Im thinking about venting my gas tube on my saiga 7.62x39. i am wondering if i use a cutting wheel and vent 3 slots on each external rib of the tube will this weaken the tube. I think it is strong enough and it wont effect it much other than maybe run cooler and cleaner. What do you guys think?
  23. So my bullet guide mission was a success and I recomend to anybody that has a Saiga to do the bullet guide its way worth it. Even for people that live in commy states such as California cause ak 10 rounders are way cheaper than the saiga ones. This was the easiest mod I have done so far and I have done everything else such as the full conversion, thread barrel for muzzle break attatchment, polish trigger group..etc.
