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 since the tapco ak stock is a little shorter than i like. Total list of Work done: Removed old trigger parts Removed old trigger guard Mod bolt hold open lever for safety lever clearance Mod trigger pin retaining plate Mod new trigger and hammer for fitment and overtravel bump stop Cut hole for pistol grip nut Weld up 6 old holes, 2 from the trigger guard, 4 from the old trigger pins Weld on Pistol grip reinforcement plate Blend welds Paint, and Bake cure Parts Used Tapco G2 Double Hook trigger set Tapco Ak buttstock Tapco Pistol grip nut Hogue Ak Grip Trigger guard Kit and drill jig from Cobra Customs (thanks again Shannon and Sandi) The conversion may be finished, but shes far from done. I still have a few things i would like to do to it when time and money allow.
