New conversion questions

Recommended Posts

It's been awhile since I have been very active here and there have been some product changes since I was really into it. To preface this a bit, I've done 2 7.62x39 and 2 S12 conversions as well as built around 20 AK's from kits. Needless to say, I'm handy with a dremel and not afraid to hack and slash on a firearm ;) This is my current love:

Yesterday I acquired an unconverted 2001 S12 with the 22" barrel, no BHO in very nice condition. I thought that since this is the MOST rabid hoard of S12 lovers anywhere I'd ask a few opinions on some of the new stuff to make conversions easier. Particularly I was wondering about the RAM S12TG drop in. After cutting my own grip nut holes and re-doing the factory guards, this thing looks like a great time saver. Is it any good or should I shuck out a couple more bucks and get a different one? Which is good and won't break the bank?


Also, how is the S12 FCG pin retainer? I like them in AK's, but how is the S12 version? Should I just stick to E-clips?


Any suggestions on a BHO? I wa thinking about just putting a notch in the selector and calling it good.


I probably won't make this one as "craptical" as the one pictured. Just cut down the barrel and throw on either a Romy folder or the Tapco AK stock.


Before anyone asks, Yes I know my 922 count and yes, the barrel will be 18.5 inches when complete. Thanks in advance!

I used a Ram s-12 TG with my conversion, it looks great. One thing that I had to do is grind the nut under the hammer were the TG bolt to the receiver so it would go all the way down. Other than that it's awesome product. If you want to install a BHO http://store.carolinashooterssupply.com/servlet/-strse-368/Saiga-12-BHO-Bolt/Detail

Personal i like the retaining plate.nice and solid. Cobra Customs does a nice polish job in the FCG and it is ready to drop in.

two new things that you maybe interested in.
