I had this on a Saiga 7.62x39mm. According to the TWS website it will fit all Saiga rifle calibers, including .308win. Includes pin, C-clip, new cam action release, dustcover/rail, and rear peep sight. I would strongly prefer to sell the rail and sight as a unit, but I am willing to consider selling them separately. Peep in like-new condition. Rail in good condition, but has some wear from normal use: Finish rubbed off where optic was mounted. Wear from being hit by ejected shells. Wear inside near the back from cycling of the action. $95 ($70 for the rail system, $25 for the peep sight), includes shipping. If I have to sell them separately there will be a $5 shipping cost on each part. I accept PayPal. Please send me a PM if interested.
Compared to the Saiga rifles, the primary dust cover on the shotgun receivers have a longer notch on side with the charging handle to allow for clearance of the ejected shells. The problem that I have seen with this is that the safety selector, when pushed upward to the "Safe" position, frequently travels well beyond the top of the receiver, only stopping after it begins to set underneath the dust cover. This can make it rather awkward and difficult to move the safety into the "Fire" position, even with a modified safety selector (like the Krebs Mark VI-S). I am thinking that possibly adding a safety selector-stop notch at the "Safe" position would help to prevent this over-travel and reduce the difficulty in transitioning back to the "Fire" position, approximately in the location shown here: I don't see any issue with the selector position at this notch location that would cause problems with keeping the fire control mechanism locked, and it appears that the selector position is still sufficiently in-line to prevent charging the bolt. Has anyone tried this before, and/or are there any potential problems that I am overlooking with this seemingly innocuous modification?
