Questions About the new Saiga IZ 332 100 Series

Recommended Posts

I haven't been paying much attention to these new AK style Saigas but I wanted to get 2 of them and turn them into under folders.

But before I even think about doing this I have a few questions.

 

  1. Has anyone converted one on these?
  2. If so, is the conversion process pretty much the same?
  3. I know it has 24mm threads under the welded thread protector, but does anyone know if it has standard threads under the front sight base
  4. What stye of bullet guide does it take?

Now, for the most mportant question

 

Who has the best price on them?

 

 

Thanks

I just converted one.

 

Conversion is the same...

 

I don't know about threads under the sight...

 

Bullet guides are different shapes. Some are flat, some are round.

according to atlantic, some have dimples, and some dont.

 

I did 'the math' on the cost of converting one of these vs. converting a 'regular' saiga into a 100 series AK. The cost was within $10 to build an SGL clone.

what are the prices of slg you looked at? i honestly would take the plastic off and put wood on it and i like because it come with threaded barrel and hand guard retainer already. is it worth getting the 332 or just get the 132

no, your reading my post wrong.

 

I compared the price of a regular style saiga converstion vs. the new 332 converstion, both to be like an SGL.

 

That cost for the conversion parts, no labor, was within $10.

 

I did this 2 weeks ago for a friend, and here is the breakdown:

 

 

SGL from Atlantic Firearms: $805 w/ free shipping (transfer not included)

standard Saiga conversion: $691 (transfer not included)

332 Saiga conversion: $684 (transfer not included)

 

so your within $100 of just buying the SGL.

That is why I went with the SGL too. I got mine through Bud's for $795 (cash price) with free shipping.

 

I converted my 12 and my .410. If I could have gotten the same quality of the sgl2161 in a shotgun for the same price range, I wouldn't have done the conversion.

 

You also have to watch the "professional conversions" out there that just put plugs the holes where the old triggerroup was. If I'm paying for a conversion done by a "pro" they had better weld the holes shut and refinish it.

I converted mine. It's the same process as the IZ-132 or any other outside of removing the GB and FSB (which is a moot point).

There doesn't seem to be room for 14mm threads under the FSB as it's flush with exterior of bbl.

There are about 4-6 retailers I know of with the same price on the IZ-332. Google is your buddy.

Mine took a flat BG. I'm sure they vary.

the 332 has a 100 series FSB that has a cap over the threads, then tacked in place. All you have to do is remove the tack welds and you have the standard 24mm threads.

I received my rifles, the AK front end adds more then enough value to the gun to warrent the additional cost.

 

I just ordered enough parts to convert both to Warsaw type AKs.

 

I'm still wondering if thery are threaded under the FSB.

 

I would rather use 14mmLH threaded comps on them.
