mike762 posted a topic in Want To Buy (WTB)I am looking to buy a replacement factory FSB with thread shroud for my '14 iz-132. It needs to be a newer one that is pinned under the barrel and not dimpled into the barrel. If anyone has a spare one left over from a conversion that is looking to sell it please let me know! Thanks.
mherrera725 posted a topic in Conversions and Modifications for the Saiga firearmsHello 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 practical to move the front sight base closer to the shooter? How difficult would it be do it? How do I fill the dimple holes? If I did all that I would have it cerakoted. I havn't seen anything on ANY forum that talks about it. My goal is for the front sight base and the rail to meet like in the second picture attached (yes I know that's a shorter barrel in the picture). Realistic or not??
