Hmmm...  Handguard kinda reminds me of an FG-42, stock & grip are reminiscent of MG-34. I like it.


"They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance."
Last words of Major General John Sedgwick, Battle of Spotsylvania.

 

“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.” ―Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle

I tried to keep the gun Russian mostly in looks. Except for the Metal was completely sanded, polished and blued by my buddy. Many many hours of work can't thank him enough!!!!!!!!!!

Some of the different metal alloys blued different shades. The dust cover has a copper tone, really cool I thought.

Upgrades and mods include:

Basic Tapco conversion with grip and stock trigger assembly
Cleaned gas ports and block (gun would not run high brass reliably. It was bad)
Replaced ejector spring with lighter trigger disconnector spring
JTE performance spring
PN-1 zenitco charging handle
Reliability kit with CSS plug and spring
Polished bolt and carrier (Not a mirror finish I know)
Axis pin retaining plate
Guiderod assembly kit
Recoil buffer
US made CSS muzzle brake (Based on Russian molot brake)
Russian sling
Russian DDI-12 hand guard
Russian molot folding grip
Saiga oem Izhmash crazy priced but awsome looking 8 rounder
Russian PK-01V red dot

Great site- So much information here!  My 1st post here. I just picked up my Saiga 12 from a local gunshop last Friday. Walked in to buy a .22 rifle, and came out with this.

 

It's stock and unconverted, and from what I understand was made in 2012. Got it for $750, extra mags included. I cant see any evidence that it has ever been fired.

 

I have a conversion kit coming from CSS  for the conversion. Going to be a plain jane conversion at 1st- I might tacticool it out later.

 

Looking forward to learning and looking at a lot of great Saigas!

just make sure not to put your extra mags in it until its converted or the ATF will kill all your pets.

Spent the afternoon converting my Saiga 12 today. It took a few hours- I spent a lot of time following Youtube vids to make sure I didn't screw anything up.

 

I went with the CSS trigger guard and trigger group, MFT Engage pistol grip, Tapco standard AK buttstock and metal barrel thread ptotector. It went pretty smoothly, except for that pain in the ass BHO spring. One thing I have to pass on is that Dupli-color part # DE1634 Low Gloss Black engine paint is a PERFECT match to the original Saiga paint.. I didn't have to do any masking at all- Just hit it with wax & grease remove and sprayed away. 

 

Now..... Gonna shoot it and get the hang of it before I start jazzing it up.

 

John

Waiting for a GK-03 Muzzle Brake from Custom-Guns.ru, getting a zhukov stock adapter CNC'ed hopefully this week. Also there is a lot left to do on the internals. It refuses to run 24gr, 28gr works sort of ok with the FTE now and then. However it is a start :o

-When a seat becomes vacant, it can only be sold for 110% of what it was sold for last

-All bribery money must be reported on form 1099-Misc
