Hello all,
I'd like to put a wood US made butt stock on my Saiga .223

Does anyone know which receiver the Saiga resembles:

MAK straight cut


Egyptian Maadi, Romanian, Hungarian stamped straight cut

Any help or suggestions are appreciated. . .

The saiga is a STAMPED receiver. Flat back. (NO ANGLES)

ANY stock made for a STAMPED receiver will work. AFTER YOU DO THE FCG CONVERSION! (or the stock wont quite fit in there...)

I can make a buttstock for converted or unconverted Saigas. For unconverted I offer a classic sporting and a QPG style buttstock. For converted, any European compatible stock will work, which I do offer as well with plenty of options.

FCG conversion?

When you do the PG conversion you move the FCG more forward creating a little more room at the back of the receiver to accomodate the stock.

FCG = Fire Control Group PG = Pistol Grip
It wasn't too long ago that I was wondering what those abbreviations meant.
The Tapco FCG is probaly the most commonly used for conversions.

Installing this kit will move the trigger right behind the magazine catch and leave room to install a pistol grip.
If you have a newer Saiga .223, all of the necessary holes are already cut into the receiver. Check out the conversion
tutorial. Saiga conversion
