I started with a basic Tromix conversion then I threaded the barrel and added the four prong FH(US made of course).
Plus the Kobra makes a nice little tactical rifle for me. Like I said before though, no SBRs allowed in IL. :(
The rifle is modified to accept Bulgarian waffles and Weiger type magazines.

Well, here are my two .223's

One was converted a year ago, the other this morning.

It's weird, but in the flash, the wood forearm looks like it matches the stock on the other rifle better. However, in normal light it is almost a perfect match to the stock on the rifle that it is already on... Strange... :unsure:

Both are complete conversions... but I would not call them "Finished"... They both could use some final painting, or fine touch up work... for me, I kinda like them rough... that way I don't care about abusing them in the field... if they were all pretty-pretty... I wouldn't want to take them out of the house! LOL

Anyways... Enjoy!!

Nope... I have butthole stocks because I actually like they way they look... and I got them for 99 cents each. ( they actually came to $3.00 each after shipping charges... I had 20 of them at that price, sold off most to get all my money back, leaving me with several for my projects... and it makes a conversion SO EASY... :up: LOL :up: )

Well, I wasn't satisfied with the way it looked before... I get fussy when things dont match...

Before:

So I decided to change a few things, thread the barrel, and stick the Tantal brake on it... as it didn't belong on the WASR10... a different stock... ( well, same style, just the proper color to match the hand guard)

After:

My first saiga and I love it. The only thing that I've done to it is retro-fit an mp5 tactical rail system to the existing front stock. A little bit of drilling, dremeling, and sweat and it was done ;) Still on the fence as to do the pistol grip conversion.

(Sorry for the 'lo-res' photo, but that seems to be all I could get out of the "'Manage Current Attachments' menu" - everything with more pixels bombed out. Maybe I'm just 'pixel impaired'... ;>)

Here it is (my 'Econo-Saiga-Build'), from bow to stern:

US-made AR-15 AK-74-style muzzle device (from my 'parts bin:' threaded 1/2x28 RH, originally purchased on Gunbroker, after the sunset of the 'assault weapons ban,' for $10);

QD sling swivel stud, mounted on the left side of the factory handguards (from my 'parts bin:' don't remember the price of the stud & swivel);

Modified Weaver rail, mounted at original sling swivel location (from my 'parts bin:' Weaver part # 94, rear scope mount for the Winchester M94 'angle-eject,' modified with a half-round file, and various grades of emory paper wrapped around available tubing, to fit the Saiga handguard; originally purchased from the clearance area at a Walmart store for $1, with the Weaver rings and front mount included, IIRC - bargain hunters take note);

Slightly modified German(?) G-3 'skinny handguard' heat shield, mounted inside the factory Saiga handguards ($5, IIRC, for the entire G-3 handguard, on Gunbroker - my idea, my design, and my work);

AK-74 rear sight blade, or 'plate' (from the 'parts bin' [and don't buy from Global, whatever you do, if you want one], graduated to 1000 meters, with the markings painted orange or white - and that's Allis Chalmers orange, by the way, since I'm from a family of successful farmers);

Dinzag's bullet guide for Orlite & Bulgy mags ($25 for the 'full monty' [you can never have too many quality bits or taps], thanks again to dinzag, angrydutchman, & vjor, for the excellent end result);

A bunch of Galil Orlites, in like-new condition, at next-to-nothing prices ($5 each, thank you very much, CDNN);

US-made Orlite floorplates (my idea, my design, and my work - 100% reliable, so far);

US-made Orlite follower (untested & experimental - thank you for the idea, Havoc308!);

Stock Saiga trigger guard, with front 'tang' left long (to allow Orilte mags to fit tight - my idea, my design, and my work - 100% reliable, so far);

'Fire' & 'Safe' markings painted (thank you again, Rustoleum white & Allis Chalmers orange spray paint, applied with a chopped-off Q-tip);

G2 double-hook FCG (about $35, IIRC, in a package with the following part);

Red Star Arms axis pin retaining plate (included in a package with the above - just shows you how stupid the Leftists are, in most ways, that they didn't think this up themselves. Trust American gun-owner ingenuity to improve things!);

'Shortened' BHO (and everyone is right - it IS a major PITA to reinstall, but it is definitely worth the effort, IMHO);

'Big-White-Dot' safety indicator (big white paint dot painted on the right side of the hammer: if you can see it with the safety off, the action is not cocked - my idea [as far as I know], my design, and my work);

Internal stainless steel pistol grip reinforcing plate (my idea, and my design - I worked it out in 1/8" aluminum, and used my own aluminum plates on a couple of AK builds, but this particular plate is a prototype from a great WECSOG-parts vendor at AKfiles, based on my idea. Mil-spec folding-stock AKs have an external reinforcing plate for the pistol grip, that is welded to the receiver. If you are interested in an internal reinforcing plate - no welding required - I can refer you to our mutual friend at AKfiles, or suggest how you might fabricate your own, or you can figure it out yourself, because it's definitely not 'brain surgery');

US-made pistol grip (thank you, K-Var, for the grip & conventional butt stock, ~$49 IIRC, butt stock not mounted in this photo);

Recoil buffer (I don't remember who to thank, because I've had it so long, but 'thanks!'); and

Thumb-lever Romy side-folding stock (thank you, DPH Arms - $49 is the deal of the century).

All of the work involved in the above conversion was my own. But many thanks to all of the folks who have posted here - in my opinion, nothing beats an informative website (like this one) when it comes to building/converting a 100% reliable firearm, in a safe, legal, and proficient manner...
