Jeric 0 Posted September 8, 2005 Report Share Posted September 8, 2005 (edited) FOR THE "A KIT" (like the stock saiga BHO) Step 1. Make a 1/8" x 1/5" (.125" x .5") hole in the receiver. (Fig. A) The center line of the hole should be about 3/16" (.187") from the outside edge of the receiver. Start by drilling four 1/8" holes in the receiver bottom. Use a good, sharp bit with lubricant and go slow. Scoring a line with a Dremel cut-off wheel, scribe or center punch can keep your drill bit from creeping. Once your holes have been drilled, you can remove the excess material from the opening by using a file or a small grinding bit on a Dremel tool. Finish the opening with a small, flat needle file. FIG. A Step 2. Place the spring and BHO into the receiver as shown with the spring hooked over the BHO (Fig. FIG. B Step 3. Proceed with the installation of your Fire Control Group (FCG) beginning with the hammer. (Fig. C) Remember, you must remove material from the right side of the hammer sleeve in order for it to fit with the BHO installed. Tip: Hold the BHO up to the edge of the hammer sleeve, scribe a mark on the sleeve and that is roughly the amount of material you need to remove. FIG. C Step 4. Maneuver the trigger group assembly into place. (Fig. D) Push the trigger axis pin almost all the way through. FIG. D Step 5. With a miniature screwdriver or small piece of steel, reach through the trigger pin hole and depress the spring loop from the outside of your receiver as shown (Fig. E) to allow the trigger pin to pass through the loop. Once you have done this, the trigger pin should be able to be pushed all the way home and your BHO spring is secured. This is the hardest part of the process. FIG. E Sorry for the blurry photo... Some guys have used a string to get the spring to compress, and have had good luck. Here's a link to one post I found. http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?showto...741entry38741 Step 6. Reassemble the firearm and test function. Jeric Edited September 8, 2005 by Jeric Quote Link to post Share on other sites
