I would just go with a 308 if you need a bunch of rounds.

This is a hunting rifle. One shot will suffice. ;-)

I suppose it's possible. The Valmet Hunter in 30'06 was imported in the 80's. It's certainly possible that someone modified one of those into an AK clone, though I have never seen it done.

Funny, because I was looking at one last month, and wondered if anyone had the balls to attempt a conversion on one before.

i know, i know.

it's just an aesthetic thing, y'know?

really though, you did a fantastic job.

it's too bad they butchered the receiver so much, it sort of leaves the conversion out of reach of mere mortals such as myself.

Very nice work! And I really appreciate that you posted the steps, though I think #28 goes without saying. In Oklahoma I believe you'll need to have at least two of them though. :haha:

I got rid of an Egyptian Maadi Misr-90 because I couldn't figure out how to mount a proper stock to it.

Now that I've seen this, I've slapped myself in the head for not thinking of welding in a triangular extension. I have the skills and equipment for it, but my overly complex mind didn't come up with the simple solution. Duh! :huh:

Nice work Tony!! but i hate the shitty safety lever on AK type rifles and my saiga 30-06 has a real one in it.I have been told that some folks are working on a bigger capt. mag for it.I can get by with four rounds!!

So when is this conversion option going to show up on the Tromix web site? :wub:
Now I guess that I'll have to save for that one after I pay for the S12 and S308 conversions.

Awsome work Tony!

I haven't even figured out what it would cost. But it would be cost prohibitive based on the time spent to pull it off. Somewhere in $1,500 - $2,000 range. For that kind of money, I would buy something else.

Wow. A new Saiga has barely hit our shores and Tony has already done a full AK style conversion. My hat is off to you.
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country. But he that stands it now deserves the love and thanks of men and women.

From this place we will deliver notice to the parlaiments of conquerors that a line has been drawn against the darkness.
And we will hold that line, no matter the cost. - John Sheridan, 2259

Sir,
Re:
13. Machine a groove in the scope rail to allow installation of PSL optic.

14. Weld and machine lower “V” groove in scope mount rearward ¾” for PSL mounting.

Could you go into a little more detail and/or post some detail shots of steps 13 and 14 for us? (OK, for me. But I share.)
I am looking at the optic and see where the nubbin is that needs the front horizontal groove to be dug on the front aspect of the sideplatemount. But what is the "V-groove"?
How long/deep is the front groove? how wide? or can it be a sloppy fit?
etc?etc?

Thanks and as others have said before: you are one talented individual. Beautiful conversion!

Holy shit Tony!
W :eek: W...thats all I can get out right now...

Dinzag an AK 50 is nowhere near that hard to do, at least it doesn't look it. I have a friend who built one. It has a PG stock like the removable Russian ones for the Saiga, a 4' HEAVY bbl and a tank brake, optic, & tripod. It's got a screw in breech plug and is single shot. It's a monster but that 06 is a work of art!

Lazlong there is a much easier solution to mounting a regular wood AK stock on a Maadi but I'll not clog up any more of THEE MAN's thread with other stuff. I'll post some pics of mine in a different thread in the x39 section for anyone's interested.
