    5.56 AK Magazine "need help"

    Since Bulgaria is stopped imports of their Circle 10 AK mags to the U.S. for at least 2 years. I've been trying to get some manufacturers to make some 5.56x45 AK mags, but they’re still don’t seem to be for the idea, “Until” enough people ask for them to be made. I still think that if someone made some steel 5.56x45 AK mags or maybe even a polymer mag with a steel top/feed lip area, that would be mated to the polymer mag body, like the Lancer 5.56 AR mags, or the CZ Scorpion Hybrid mags by Manticore Arms and Prepper Gun Shop, they would sell like crazy. The making of a 5.56x45 AK magazine would fit the majority of the World’s 5.56x45 based AK’s: like the Bulgarian 106, Polish Archer, Polish Beryl, and Vepr AK's, and with a slight fitting, would also fit the Siaga .223/5.56 AK's. Promag is the only current maker of new 5.56x45 AK mags, in the U.S. Any current surplus mags are hard to find and are priced higher than they should be. I heard that there was a custom $5 magazine follower that was made by Robinson Arms that would convert 5.45x39 AK mags to work with .223/5.56 ammo. I would love to acquire one of the Robin magazine followers, to see what the dimensional differences were. Also if anyone knows if those converted mags functioned great or had any issues. I believe that the best bet for a new manufactured steel 5.56x45 AK mag is from Csspecs. I also believe that the best bet for a new polymer 5.56x45 AK mag is from Magpul. If enough of us emailed Csspecs, we could have a full steel (Around $40) U.S. made 5.56 AK mag very soon. If enough of us emailed Magpul, we could have an ($13 to $20) polymer U.S. made 5.56 AK mag soon. It will just take enough of our voices to make it happen. Please help bring a newly manufactured 5.45 AK mag to the U.S. market and beyond. Copy and paste the paragraph below, if needed: “I would like for you to please bring a 5.56x45 AK magazine to the U.S. market. One of these mags would fit most of the World’s 5.56x45 based AK’s: like the Bulgarian 106, Polish Archer, Polish Beryl, and Vepr AK's, and with a slight fitting, would also fit the Siaga .223/5.56 AK's.

    Magpul MOE HG on AKAR-DA

    From the album: Variety

    RE: Magpul MOE handguard AKAR-DA edition (JK!). Magpul MOE handguard (rifle length), modified to fit my AKAR-DA. (Magpul: how copy?). I am SGT Raven and I approve this message.
  4. I saw a story recently about HK "possibly" introducing a semi-auto MP7 pistol for us mere mortals. This got me thinking about the question of "What is a good, effective, semi-auto PDW?" (*PDW for this discussion being a larger-size pistol, carbine or SBR capable of holding 20+ rounds, semi-auto only!) Personally, I just don't "get it" with regards to the ultra-small cartridges like HK's 4.6x30mm or the PS90's 5.7x28mm. So, for what I'm interested in, what would be the general pro's and con's of the following cartridges, in terms of 10-100 yd. effectiveness, ammo availability and general "usefulness?" 4.6x30mm- IMO, not "sold" on it's effectiveness, proprietary, not reloadable, expensive, only 1 firearm so far... maybe. 5.7x28mm- Pretty much "same as above" but I honestly don't know if it's reloadable or not, only 2 choices for firearm so far. 22WMR- Good availability, "might" be decent for HD if you're concerned about overpenetration, but also not reloadable. Not many choices for firearm. (Threw this in for the heck of it, a friend has a PMR30 that he likes!) 9mm and .45ACP- Proven record of effective hollow-point ammo, LOTS of ammo choices and various carbines and pistols to use, reloadable! .223- LOTS of ammo choices of all kinds, reloadable, many pistols, carbines and accessories to choose from. I own a Kriss SDP .45ACP, and a DB-15 pistol in .223. They have both been completely reliable so far and I'm going to be getting more range time with them now that the weather is finally cooperating.

    Saiga M Takedown Buttstock

    Hello everyone -this is my first post, first semi auto rifle, first AK, and first Saiga. I bought a .223 Saiga M "takedown" rifle from Legion USA: http://legionusainc.com/izsl-m-saiga-wood-.223-rem.html Got the rifle field stripped, back together, and I like it. Haven't shot it yet though, and I have a feeling I won't for awhile because the buttstock is extremely wobbly. As in the buttstock will wobble when touched, when the gun is shouldered, and there's a visible gap between the metal and wood. Also, the instruction manual isn't very clear as to taking the stock off. Any help would be appreciated, although I know this is a very rare Saiga variant. I'll be calling Legion shortly. Legion also advertised the rifle to come with a camo carry case, but I didn't get a case when I picked the rifle up from my FFL. I did get this weird bottle of tools however. Does anyone know what they do?

    Saiga "AKAR" evolution

    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 and AR mag adapters from MSA. Setting up for custom Fuglystick handguard: With custom Fuglystick handguard: ACE folding mechanism: Folded Magpul MOE on ACE hinge, paratrooper style.
  7. Hi all, been a long time...unfortunately circumstances are such that I need to let this one go: Converted Saiga .223 16" (purchased new by me in 2008, converted in 2009, hasn't been fired since 2010) DPH Arms Over-Sight Phantom Flash Hider Tapco G2 Trigger Tapco Galil Foregrip Tapco Adjustable M4 stock and SAW grip Mojo Micro Click rear ghost ring sight (best iron sight option for the AK IMO) CQB Sling with Uncle Mike's swivels Surefire 30-round magazines (qty 3) The gun probably has about 500 rounds through it, maybe 200-300 since the conversion, sweet shooter, probably the most accurate AK pattern I've used to date. Cosmetically, I planned to powder coat/paint the receiver post-conversion, but it never happened (bought a house, had a kid, yadda yadda yadda). So, if someone wanted to give it the final cosmetic treatment, I'd be stoked to see the end result. Mechanically, the gun is dialed. I've used all 3 mags and it has been 100% reliable with every kind of ammo I've fed it (Tula, BB/SB, Wolf, Winchester, PMC, etc). Not really interested in trades, I need the money. SOLD!!! Buyer will pay shipping/transfer to their friendly, local FFL. I will package things nicely. I'll miss this gun, I've had a lot of fun with it, but time to move on. I've included pics to show the cosmetics and WYSIWYG! Cheers!

    WTK: Saiga .223/AK102 conversion

    not sure where to put the WTKnow whats it worth threads. Mods are welcome to move it accordingly. Trying to get an Idea of what to sell this for. Being Saigas are not being imported (to my knowledge ) Its hard for me to gauge prices. Its a Tactical Saiga .223/AK102 conversion done by Overland Industries I believe from either 09 or 11. I can double check if need be. Has: linkage holes have been riveted up new paint job correct ak trigger guard Kvar US made handguard G2 trigger set ultimak rail Hogue grip 1000m rear sight leaf bulgarian FSGB CNC worrior extended flash hider. barrel has been professionally cut and recrowned, and flash hider permanently attached AK/AR buffer tube with magpul 6 position adjustable moe stock Bipod US piston(not sure, can double check) comes with 1 30 round bulgarian clear mag with magpul about 60 rounds of federal brass through it. Very accurate. Very tight groups when I sighted in. Any help is appreciated, Thanks G
  11. I recently came into some 5.45 magazine bodies that were stripped of the internals. I have picked up some floorplates and followers and have ordered the springs.I have not been able to locate the floorplate retainers. Anyone have any ideas on where these might be found or some cheap saiga 5.45 or .223 mags cheap to butcher for parts ? Thanks in advance.

    Did I Make a Big Mistake with the .223?

    Hey folks. Recently acquired a used saiga 223. Never had a gun of this size or power before so I know nearly nothing about these. I understand how to shoot it as it is a very simple design, which I love. So the first day I took it to the range, I loaded about 5 bullets in the 10rnd factory magazine and it loaded no problem. Fired the first round and it shot awesome. Unfortunately, it jammed on the second round and couldn't ever get it to fire again. It was attempting to feed but would send the round in at a bad angle where it wouldn't go in the barrel. Unfortunately, I didn't have any other mags with me to test to see if the mag was the issue. Is this a known problem? Should I try it with my non-factory mags before getting too concerned? I've heard only good things about these guns so I'm really hoping this was just a weird incident. Thanks!

  14. I'm still a little mixed up on importers and what they did to them once they arrived here in the states. Did some importers mill new receivers on some of these rifles and reassemble them before passing them on, or did they come that way from Russia? I am now seeing a FIME type/importers version of a Arsenal in 7.62x39 (I know, I'm crossing forums, I posted in both... hope you don't mind) and something about Arsenal phasing out some/all of it rifles. I know its tough, but could someone school me in Importers/setups reliability and desirability (.223-5.56-7.62 or even .308)? I am going to do both builds at the same time, and I absolutely want to start with the right caliber/platform on build two. IYHO and why.

    Final configuration of .223 Saiga. Complete conversion with AR magazine well and true LRBHO (by the company, who is not a Business Member here yet; therefore won't be named). Happy Shooting!
  17. Obviously .224 bullets are hard to come by at the moment, so please spare me the comments to that effect. Links to good supplies would be appreciated. The point of this thread is mostly to know what I should be looking for so that I can pounce when a deal on large volume of bullets comes up. Right now about the cheapest volume deals I can find are $0.10/ bullet which works out to $0.19/round even based on the current cost of other components. From what I can tell, things are making their way back to the shelves, but anything related to .223 is slowest and scarcest. I've got some primers and varget, so bullets are all I need to get started. Best case scenario would be to find one or two bullets and buy a huge quantity so that I don't have to develop several different recipes. Practical accuracy out to 300 yards or so is the focus of this particular application. lead core 55 grn M193 sounds convenient for being standard and common. I don't mind pulled bullets or surplus if they work well. I have been gearing up to do a bunch of reloading, and sometime this summer I will likely be doing a bit of mass reloading with friends for various .223 weapons. There are a couple of ARs, and there is plenty of info out there about how to find a bullet weight that runs well in different barrels. My cousin "Salt" and a local friend have Zastava M85 Pap 556 AK pistols. I can't seem to find anything out there which tells me what ammo these things are the least inaccurate with. The easy answer would be to buy 6k 55grn boat tails and call it done, but if I am going to buy 6K of anything it should be an optimal round or super cheap or both... Another .224" cartridge I am likely to be making with Salt is 5.7x28 which seems to like light bullets made for .223 such as the 34 grain varmint bombs. I'd need to refresh my memory before buying projectiles for this, but if I were to buy a large quantity of bullets for Salt that would work for both of his guns that would be convenient. Heavy for caliber would be good in this particular gun because he runs a gemtech suppressor and we want to develop a reliable subsonic load that doesn't need a spring change. Most of the info says that 5.7 is a tricky caliber to load for, so this might be too much to ask for.

    AKAR-DA scope sighting

    From the album: Variety

    Since "picture worth one thousand word", here it comes. AKAR-DA scope sighting on (cheep but dependable) TulAmmo 55 grain .223 (ran out of time to try with match-grade ammo). (Please, notice: precision marksmanship was not a goal here, nor it is my "forte"). Even with "birdcage", muzzle rise is easily manageable and recoil is very AR-ish light. Happy Shooting!
