I'm new here, new to Saigas, and would appreciate a little help. I live in Texas -a pistol grip and high capacity magazine friendly State, and have a Saiga 7.62 and a Saiga 12 on their way. This was a post EO buy I regret and my procrastination cost me this time. I'm trying to find out if putting pistol grips and high capacity mags on both of them would require a conversion kit by law. Also, I would like to eventually get real wood furniture for the 47 and wonder if that would affect it's import compliance or make it need a conversion by law. I think the pistol grip question would cover the installation of the slide fire for the 7.62 but I'm not sure. Importing firearms other than C&R is new to me and I'm trying to procrastinate entering into the 922r world until it is absolutely necessary! Another question is: When companies import a firearm for civilian sporting use, does the importer need to replace any parts with US made parts before selling ? Any help would be appreciated.
Hey guys and gals. I just recently bought a saiga carbine 7.62. I had planned on converting it to the AK configuration, ie move trigger group forward, folding stock, and feed ramp so it would take standard AK mags. However, the box it came in said. Saiga rifle withe mod/magwell and plastic stock. So after close examination of the rifle it comes with a pistol grip, straight out of the box. The trigger appears to have already moved forward ie..its snug up against the magwell. And of course the the box says modified magwell.. So does that mean it will take all AK mags? It came from RWC, at least it says that on the rifle along with the saiga makings and made in russia logo. Any help would be really helpful. I have no clue if its a G2 trigger group and it also came with two big thirty round magazines with no saiga marking on the mags as well. If you guys know, I mean really know, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. I emailed the company tech rep but have not gotten a response. I should also note that the barrel is the 16 in, but has no bayonet lug or flash suppressor of any kind. Thanks again. Here are some pictures. I dont know what was done in the magazine well, it does not appear to have that feed ramp and this is one of the magazines it came with.
