Saiga 556 bolt carrier compatibility

Recommended Posts

Short version: Will an East German AK74 bolt carrier work in a Saiga 556?


I ordered a KNS adjustable gas piston but I don't have a drill press to drill the dimples on the carrier. Figured if I could find a carrier cheap enough I could install it in that and It would make it easy to go back for whatever reason. Found an East German AK74 carrier for $50 so I wanted to make sure it would work before ordering.


If not, what carrier would work and does anyone have a source? I need one without a piston installed.
