Basic Conversion Done. Whats Next?

Recommended Posts

Just graduated from college after 10 years and ready to finish up my saiga. This is my second conversion and i want it to be as accurate as possible to an original ak. Let me know what you think and what my next step should be.

Which AK are you going for here? Since that's a 7.62, I'd say a 45 degree gas block with bayonet lugs, an AKM front sight block, threaded 14x1mm left hand muzzle and a cleaning rod.

How do you do a 45 degree gas block?

 

Remove front sight block, remove gas block, press on the 45 degree one, line it up properly and pin it into position. Be warned they can be a huge pain to get far enough onto the barrel without a press.

I am pretty sure that you have to weld up the 90* hole and redrill a 45* hole.

It is not just the Gas block change,but the holes in the barrel are different as well.

 

I would thread the barrel and add a break of your choice and call it good.

Nice work !
