  1. Note: This is my first post on this forum. I’ve given this idea a lot of thought. Maybe I'm not the first to do this, but I thought I’d submit it to you guys to see what you think. – Bubba Zanetti, March 2014. “Saiga Defender” Concept in 7.62 x 39 I bought my Saiga 7.62 x 39 “Hunting Carbine” at a gun show three years ago. I’ll never forget my wife’s surprise when I brought it home: “What’s this box that says $349!??” That seemed like a lot of money to her, but I knew the Saiga was substantially undervalued. Unboxed, it looked plain and non-threatening, a kitten. But I knew it retained its tiger heart in the form of the Russian made AK 100 receiver. For a time, I kept my 7.62 dressed in its black polymer pajamas, but it wasn't long before I wanted more. What to do? The most popular Saiga conversion is the “Classic AK”: the modern, semi-auto version of the rifle that would have been used by hordes of dismounted Soviet infantry as they stormed NATO defenses. Much fun & satisfaction can be had when smithing your Saiga into this tiger! Valid option, but no…not for me. I thought briefly of adding a scope and converting it to a “Scout Rifle”, but decided that’d be more fitting for the Saiga .308. What else… I’m old school, a Cold War guy with a taste for older milsurp main battle rifles and carbines. I like carbines. I have an old IBM production M1 Carbine, and it’s still pretty tight. Those .30 carbine rounds hit like a .357 at close range. Good defense against home invading Hobos, but at longer ranges .30 carbine lacks the “ass” of the 7.62 x 39 round. Inspired by my M1 Carbine, I evolved the “Saiga Defender” concept. The Defender retains the rear mounted trigger assembly, eliminating the need for a pistol grip. Wood furniture replaced the factory issue polymer stock. Wood brings the classic lines of an old-school military carbine, married with the solid “smash” capability generations of soldiers took for granted. To get this, I refinished a surplus Romanian AK butt stock and an American walnut forward hand guard. A hard rubber pad extends the butt stock an inch and gives the shooter a bit more rifle to work with. This Defender wears a heavy bolt-on muzzle break. It was not cheap, but I believe this is an excellent example of you get what you pay for. It mounts over the barrel and slides up snug on both sides of the forward sight post. A separate piece secures the brake behind the post, locked down by 4 long hex screws. It’s solid and effective. It will not come off until I want it too. Others may opt to thread their barrel and install a permanent brake – that’s cool. I like this muzzle brake. When you combine this brake with the heavy wood furniture some of the wild “jump” is negated when firing the 7.62 x 39 round. I have not yet made the bullet guide modification. This will be a summer project. Who doesn’t want to use AK mags & drums? It did wear a surplus SKS sling, but it didn't match the new wood stock. I replaced it with a 3' long brown leather cobra sling, polished the sling to match the wood grain. The Defender is meant to be fired from the shoulder, delivering US style “aimed fire” (versus Soviet volume of fire). It retains the standard AK sights, but these are “zeroed” via standard 25 meter targets simulating the 250 meter silhouette. I have swapped out the standard Saiga dust cover for a US made cover that has a built in dovetail. If you have bad eyes, you can mount an optic. I’m searching for a low profile peep sight or leaf sight that I can use with the AK forward sight post. My goal is to increase the sight radius and accuracy to mirror the M1 Carbine. (UPDATE: Will be adding Tech-Sights model AK200S sights to meet this requirement - thanks Inebriated & Think1st). My end game combines the accuracy and physical ruggedness of an M1 Carbine, with the firepower and reliability of an AK. It is heavy, defense of compound weapon. It is meant to be fired from cover at short to mid-range. Not intended for CQB (we're not clearing jihadi’s in Fallujah) but if pressed, you could swing it like a club – old school! I attached a photo of the Defender, on the bench in my workshop. What do you think? Regards, Bubba Zanetti
  2. Just a heads up on a new offering, PPS 43 pistols are being offered wwith the stock mounted in the folded position. I have just send a dozen 9mm 16 inch barrels off to be black nitrate finished. This will allow the 7.62 x 25 pistol to be used as a 9mm carbine. The muzzle is threaded 1/2 x 28. Removal and installitation is a simple press fit.
  3. Rifle is cross-posted. Up for sale is a like new Winchester 94AE Trapper chambered in .45 Colt. This is the more desirable tang safety version (no ugly push safety going through the receiver) and handy 16" barrel. Comes with the receiver mounted sling swivel and hammer spur. Factory drilled and tapped for a scope mount. This would make a great first rifle for a kid or just a handy carbine for the wife. I've shot (1) 20 round box through it since '02 and it's been in the safe ever since. Flawless except for a small ding in the wrist of the stock (didn't even scrape the finish off). Looking to get $600 shipped or trade for a 7.62x39 Saiga (+ cash/trade on your end). Must have receiver dimples, barrel length doesn't matter. I prefer one that isn't converted and it can be used. Other trades I'll consider: Krink FSB Bulgarian waffle mags 5.45 mags (Bulgy or EG Bakelite) Krink gas tube Krink hg retainer Krink laminated hg's Side folding stock (Russian/Bulgarian pattern) 7.62x39 ammo 5.45x39 ammo AK-74 FSB AK-74 gas tube AK-74 muzzle brake AK-74 recoil spring AK-74 barrel (AK-Builder) AK parts kits
  4. Looking for an unconverted 7.62x39 Saiga. MUST HAVE DIMPLES! New or used, doesn't matter.
