  1. I currently have a half converted Saiga and would like to have it fully converted. It has dimples and does not have a velcro strip. As far as I understand I need to get the proper threaded FSB/GB, folding 5.5 rear trunnion, hand guard retainer, trigger guard, mag release, and bullet guide. I would like to keep the bones of this rifle as close to authentic 103 as I can although the furiture I'm sure I'll deviate off path. Can anyone help me source the parts I need or even show me what the correct clone parts for a 103 would look like? Thanks in advance fellas.
  2. Hello guys and gals! I'm planning to get my first Saiga rifle. But one limitation seems getting on the way: I can't find any EU dealer for the trigger parts needed to do the pistol grip conversion, and any of the US dealers won't ship... Any help from this forum? Thanks a lot in advance!
  3. I'm pretty sure this question is floating around somewhere, but where can I get a replacement or spare bolt carrier? The reason for it, is I'm planning on converting my 7.62x39 sporter. Instead of drilling and changing out the gas piston, I rather get a spare and do it. Or maybe I'm doing it wrong, I should change it. Any input or direction toward getting one would be appreciated, thanks!!!

  5. I'm new here, new to Saigas, and would appreciate a little help. I live in Texas -a pistol grip and high capacity magazine friendly State, and have a Saiga 7.62 and a Saiga 12 on their way. This was a post EO buy I regret and my procrastination cost me this time. I'm trying to find out if putting pistol grips and high capacity mags on both of them would require a conversion kit by law. Also, I would like to eventually get real wood furniture for the 47 and wonder if that would affect it's import compliance or make it need a conversion by law. I think the pistol grip question would cover t
  6. Hello all, I'm new to the forums as well as Saigas in general so please bear with me. I'm not a huge fan of rifle stocks as I'm a short guy and find them uncomfortable and i was weighing out a decision on doing the typical saiga conversion. Unfortunately I live in NY so a pistol grip is a no go. Anyhow I've been seeing the Hammerhead grip on alot of AR setups with an inverted stock and was wondering if anyone has done that with their Saiga or AK, and if it was any more comfortable than a regular rifle stock. Edit * should have posted this in the conversion section. Apologies.
  7. Recently purchased a 7.62x39 Saiga, reconfigured it to it's original configuration. Put on a hogue pistol grip and a Tapco G2 trigger. Buddy of mine gave me a wood stock and a handguard but he did not have the gas tube cover. I recently got some nice wood for my Norinco SKS but it's got the cheese grater gas tube cover so therefore cannot put the wood cover on it (I personally like the cheese grater anyway. Tried installing the feed ramp but accidentally broke the tap inside the hole, so I'll be welding it in place insteading of bolting it. So I was hoping someone might be willing to s
  8. Hello all, I have a few questions regarding the parts for conversions and modification of some magazines for LRBHO. First: Looking at the conversion kits at California Shooters Supply at my options for converting my newly purchased IZ-433, and I have some concerns about the trigger guard. I don't really see any information showing if either of the trigger guard options will interfere with the tab up front for the mag well. I would imagine the answer is no, but I have no way to make a real mock up other than to use the pins in the receiver for an approximate of where the trigger guard will e
  9. Hello everybody new guy to the forum here. I usually build AR-15s' so I'm still fairly new to the "AK" platform. I bought a Saiga sporter in 5.45x39 and want to convert it to the standard AK style. I recently saw a Saiga variant by Krebbs Customs that caught my eye, so my new project is to modify my rifle around the Krebbs Custom UFM Keymod Rail. Everything seems pretty staight forward, except I want to move the Front Sight Base closer to the shooter and thread the muzzle.I know with dimples holding the front sight base secure the holes could be a problem filing in. My main question is: Is it
  10. 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.
  11. I'm converting a Saiga .308 and I'm at the step where I need to remove the trigger assembly. I know that I can't just pound the pins out- I have to drill out the shoulder. The issue is that I put one of my bits from my set into my drill press, set my Saiga down, started drilling, and before I knew it I had ground my bit down to two thirds it's length, and my trigger pin shoulder had an indention of less than 1/8th of an inch. Clearly my bits aren't going to go through that shoulder any time soon. I'm about 4 minutes away from a hardware store so I'm thinking I'll head down there and buy a
  12. 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
  13. Hey Saiga enthusiasts, Here is my "evolution in progress". Wanted to blend the best of both wolds: AR upgradeability and conveniences with AK robustness and reliability. Let's see it in process of conversion. As received: As assembled: As disassembled/field stripped: Stripped receiver: "Poor peasant's" stocked version: Customized and polished G2 FCG, Hogue PG, OEM-style trigger guard, CSS bullet guide (all from Carolina Shooters Supply). With (heavily hacked) MSA AR mag adapter, Magpul MOE stock, PMAG, and StrikeHard Gear chest rig and MOLLE bayo adapter. ACE mech from CSS; plate
  14. INTRO: For those who didn’t catch my mega thread (tutorial) about me converting my stock Saiga last year, here's a quick recap. (Scene fades to the past)… I had just purchased my first Saiga ever in 7.62x39 complete with the infamous yet horrendous “Velcro mark”. As soon as I got that baby home I could see the graceful beauty lying underneath its grotesque hunting style furniture. AK’s are considered the ugly sister that one hypothetically would keep in the basement when guests came over, then let out to clean after the guests had left. It seems the majority find these guns to be downright u
  15. Refurbished member here- I don't even show up on the member list though can log in : ) Was a member 5+ years ago but never got around to converting my Saiga 7.62X39, which I purchased for $300. Have added a Royal Tiger AK (also $300 and supposedly US made) and a PSL 7.62X54R to the arsenal. I have 10 US made 30 round mags for the Saiga plus a 10 round and a 5 round, and 10 European 30 round metal mags for the AK. Does it make sense to convert, given the price of replacement mags for the Saiga nowadays? I have searched but cannot find tutorials here on doing the conversion- I'm probably
  16. Just bought my first saiga 12. Of course I want it converted. Looked at a few of the major converters. I'm leaning now toward doing it myself. I watched all of the videos on the Carolina shooters sight and a load more on you tube. What are the major drawbacks to buying the parts and doing it myself. I don't want to spend the money and time only to find out later that I made a big mistake. Thanks!
  17. Hello, After reading the forums, you guys seems to be the authority on Saiga conversions. I was wondering if you could help me out. I elected to go with a non permanent conversion and have purchased the following parts: 1) Tapco intrafuse hand guard 2) tapco t6 stock with pistol grip 3) tapco gas piston 4) SGM tactical magazines 5) tapco g2 single hook trigger So far I have installed the hand guard, stock w/grip, and gas piston. It is my understanding that this rifle is in compliance with 922r as long as I only use the US made magazines, is that accurate? Now I would like
  18. Hey guys im wondering if i should convert my new saiga's before shooting them. the reason why i ask is because if in the very unlikely even that somthing breaks i still have a warrenty if i dont convert. some say go ahead and convert right off the bat and some say get a couple hundred through it first. ive yet to see one malfunction or break...what do you think?
  19. 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?
  20. Well Gents, I got Bored again. Awhile back I bought a well War-Torn FAL stock set Rhodesian Camouflage. It's been sitting waiting for something, and the day came around. I picked up a WASR-22, I'm not a taccool type guy, so I kept thinking/wondering if i could get the handguards to fit. The WASR-22 fell apart, strange how that happens. It's a blow back rifle so the gas system wasn't needed. I whored out the FS block to fit where the gas block should be and pressed/pinned it backwards for looks. With a little cutting and fitting to the rear of the HG's, then adding some plastic
  21. I recently purchased a Saiga .410 from a private owner and was interested in doing some conversion to it and found out about the 922r compliance issues. I am a hunter and thats what I intend to use this shotgun for. I have a Gen 1 .410 stamped '94 so it has the nonadjustable gas plug and only fires the 3" shells. I only plan on using the 4 rd factory magazines as I have 3 of them but I do appreciate the form factor and ergonomics of an adjustable stock and pistol grip. Now from what I have read, the minute I throw a pistol grip on the gun it is no longer considered a sporting rifle/shotgun
  22. Hey Guys, So i picked up my first Saiga at the end of Nov used from a local guy for a decent deal. Came with a 10 round mag and a T6 stock/grip combo. I was going to hold off on the conversion but after feeling the trigger I knew it needed to be done sooner. And since I'm leaving this month for basic i wanted to make sure i had enough time to finish it before i left. The conversion cost me roughly $140 which includes the Tools i needed. And since i have access to a mill, lathe, and TIG welder at work, i did all the mods myself. I ended up using the T6 stock with the pistol grip removed sin
