Hey guys, I finally figured our which "look" I want to go for on my Saiga 7.62 conversion. I want to cut a couple inches off my barrel including the factory fsb and permanently attach a "spikes tactical" or "battle comp" muzzle brake for 16" OAL. I have a couple questions about the process though.
1. Since I will be cutting off the barrel right behind the fsb what are my alternate front sight options? I was thinking either a complete new gas block with an integrated front sight or a "weld on" H&K style front sight to the factory gas block.
2. Will I still be able to cycle the action on most ammo after shortening the barrel or will I be required to move the gas system back?
3. If anyone has any additional help on this process or additional steps to point out then please enlighten me?
4. Anyone done this type of conversion who can post a pic of the finished product?
