Don't modify the mags--bad, bad, bad!
The Dinzag feed ramp is a good thing to install. However when you do it, be sure to set the screw in place with "red" locktight. Also a center-punch tap to the outside of the screw head is good also. I set mine in place also with a thin coat of that liquid metal two part expoxy that you can get in auto-parts stores.
If you live in CA. don't modify you mags--bad. Illegal. Felony.
To weld them up properly you need a special 0xycetelene tip (OOOO), and mixer... a large tip could wreck your mag--and also do a lot of damage to surrounding areas.
I welded up one mag to see if it would work--yeah it does. But then I looked at my stack of magazines and wondered.... it came to me that I should keep them original, and only two cheap mods to the Saiga would make them work, rather than a whole weekend full of micro-welding, grinding and filing.
The Dinzag ramp works--filing the mag latch works. Once you weld and should you choose too, file the mag tag, it's hard to go back.
Hey thanks for the information. I didn't know it was illegal to modify the mag?
well ya learn something new every day(hopefully) I went ahead and reeinstalled the ramp, as well as reversed the modifications I made to the mags to restore them to there original state.
thanks again for straightening me out. I definately want to keep everything 100% legal
