Picture Post,lets see your 7.62x39

Recommended Posts

Just finished my 7.62 Saiga conversion, couldn't find any gas blocks or front site blocks so I used a FSB/GB combo that I had and went for the AK104 look, just need a muzzle device to cover the exposed barrel.

Here's my Saiga 7.62x39 today. No different than when I got it 20 years ago, same strap and all. I may be ready for some upgrades, but I've been totally happy with it, not a single issue ever.

Figured I'd update you guys on my gun progress. It's now got a PAM3M optic on it. Btw I love and highly recommend this optic. Unbelievable clarity and over-all quality for a measly $108.

There are even quality optics for less. I believe there's a 70$ choice that takes cr2032 battery.

This one differs in that it uses a cr2 battery providing 800 hours of life and it has 4 reticals.

That's very similar to mine, what handguard is that? I just have to thread my barrel and install the flash hider then ill post pics. I have a Magpul CTR stock, MD Arms pistol grip, US Palm mag, TWS Dogleg gen 2, no factory sights but either Magpul MBUS or Troy Battle sights (not sure yet), Chaos quad rail, and an optic i like very mucha Leupold Prismatic.

I feel as if we have similar taste. Further than just AK in general. Same fore grip and rail combo. And I also went primary arms with my optic. Great sights these guys make!post-46210-0-75615100-1362546494.jpg

I believe it's a utg quad rail but am not sure as I bought it used with nothing but the quad rail. Not even the screws were included! But people have told me it looks like the utg. But as I have nothing to compare it to I can't be certain.

Basically your guess is as good as mine.

But I have been telling people it's utg just to avoid trying to figure it out. Lol.

Can't wait to see your setup. Post soon. As far as which irons to go with the functionality of the magpie MBUS sights and the Troy bus sights are identical. Just magpuls are their super plastic and Troy uses metal. Slight weight difference but nothing substantial.

Take a look into "primary arms" for an optic. They have tons of choices and they're durable and affordable. I LOVE mine.

Okay i put some old parts on the AK i was working on and sold it to my brother because i picked up a brand new dimpled Saiga 7.62 on Friday for $419 :)

 

Starting from the back:

 

*Magpul CTR stock & CSS internal block & stock parts

*MD Arms Molot pistol grip

*TWS Dogleg Gen 2 dust cover

*Tromix charging handle

*Tapco G2 FCG (all internals polished)

*CSS angled trigger guard

*CSS bullet guide

*US Palm mag

*Chaos quad rail

*Phantom flash hider

*Leupold Prismatic optic

 

I hace a TWS rear peep sight on the way that works perfect with the factory front sight. I might still go with BUIS but that'd mean a new gas tube, and Ultimak gas tube rail. I like my set up as is for now!

What you guys think??post-46357-0-87455500-1362632225_thumb.jpg

 

ETA: my brother is a supervisor at a commercial metal paint shop and will do a professional ceramic paint job in any of 128 colors i want for free :)

 

I may also order an internal AR stock adapter from Mississippi Auto Arms to clean up the rear a bit and make it look a bit better but that involves replacing the rear trunion. Maybe next winter. For now i have my first S12 on the way.

my question is how did you get those front grips. they look awesome but how hard are they to put on.

 

You talking about the handguard in the pic above your post? That's a Kvar and i think CSS sells them. You need a handguard retainer and a AK74 gas tube to use it.

In before pic it has a magazine lock and a 10 rounds mag. Stupid California crap

its funny that despite our strict gun laws here in the UK we have no mag cap restrictions

 

After trying different furniture etc i've settled on this look :)

Added an M4 commercial tube adapter from CSS with a Magpul MOE stock. Scope is a Leupold VRX-Hog. Right now I have it on a side scope mount but may upgrade to the TWS rail cover. I may also change out the front hand guard later on.
