My first saiga conversions with pics before and after. Constructive criticism welcomed, I know I can't please everyone. Looking to add an akm front sight block and slant brake to the 7.62 (wood) and ak74 fsb with zig zag brake to the 5.45 (dark earth polymer) also I'm thinking about switching the stock on the 5.45 to a dark earth 6 position stock crapco perhaps. I just don't like the finish on the fixed stock that is currently on it right now.

I like them both.
Skip the Tapco and get the Bonesteel folding 6 position stock.

Very nice job.

Be very cautious when removing the FSBs. If you see a bit of black when you dremel or drill into the OEM FSB, then that is the black paint on the barrel. This is a good indicator that you need to stop, and drill/dremel at a different spot. Make sure to go slow so that you dont cut the black paint along with the FSB material.

I would also skip the tapco if I were you.
