Pistol Grip: http://www.akfiles.c...ead.php?t=78081
And its just a regular hard shell guitar case that you can get from Guitar, Center, ebay, etc.
Here's the method that I followed (ended up using mattress foam though): http://www.ar15.com/...18/457170_.html

I had my first Saiga conversion listed before but I can't edit it and don't have the link to the pic correct so here it is again. I have about 5 hours into it. Ran 180 rounds thru it with no bullet guide and it was fine. I have one to install just have not done it yet.

Just finished my modest conversion. This is my first Kalashnikov and I must say, the quality of this rifle is excellent!
However, I am less than pleased with the fit and finish of the stock.

If you have ever seen surplus AK plum stocks, they are not exactly smooth and uniform. That's just part of the deal. Arsenal/K-VAR tried to replicate this roughness.

Pictures of the conversion I did yesterday:

I learned a couple things doing the conversion the way I did it.

-Grinding and drilling shit sucks, but you gotta do it. It's not bad, it's just kinda tedious.
-Using the folding stock block, the tang needs to be cut off and ground flat. See the previous comment.
-Using the Tapco pistol grip nut with a Hogue grip works out awesome, but you have to shave off the sides of the Tapco nut thing to work with the folding stock block. See two comments ago.
-Using the Tromix modified Tapco G2 trigger kit is stupid easy to install... the Shepherd's Crook to retain the pins is a little bit of a bitch, but I got that fucker in.
-The side folding stock (ACE with the ACE mechanism) is NICE, but I probably should have gotten the 9.5" instead of the 8.5". I can make it work, tho. I worried if the stock folded might interfere with the optics rail should I ever decide to use it, but there is plenty of clearance.

Let us know if your set screw in the ACE stock folding mechanism wears into the mated end. I wanted to use one but people that have had them long enough tell me they are shit.

Think so? Thanks!

All my buddies tell me the salmon grip is horrible looking, but that's the way the bulgarian '74s were..... I think they're just jealous.

Here's a pic with the plum fixed stock.

I like it better with the wire folder. The grip isn't competing with the plum as much. Wonder what a Bakelite would look like?

Everyone has their own flavors, traditional and beyond.

Most important thing is you can shoot it very well.

Switched to wood on the 5.45 and 7.62. These are surplus Bularian sets I picked up for $25 each, stripped and refinished.

Nice job.

They look sharp with the wood. I see their still pretty much matching. Like the Hogue grips with traditional wood, that 45rd Bakelite looks good too.

It's cool watching these rifles(others too) go through variations.

Mine got a bit of a make-over...

... Beryl stock and underbarrel launcher...

Posted Image

I took a Polish 26.5mm launcher apart and did some tinkering. I have to get a better clamp for attaching it but for now you get the idea.
I used a rail on the top tapped into a welded square tube to the launcher to mount the aluminum rail. When I get a better clamp system going then the rails will interlock into each other and it wont hang down so much.

Posted Image

Posted Image

It got pretty interesting. I couldn't shorten the handle any more than I have it but it stuck way down farther before cutting and welding it shorter. If I had to do it again I'd hack up the H&K one instead...

I guess a 37mm launcher is the next project.
