... a REAL CAN on the end.


Good for you, sir! I wish more gun owners would go to the trouble to legally obtain sound supressors - they actually are, and were originally designed to be, safety devices. The federal restrictions on sound supressors might make sense, IF the federal government also prohibited car & truck mufflers, on the (obviously mistaken) assumption that quiet vehicles allow hit-and-run drivers to escape.

Hopefully, any day now, I can arrange my own finances & other priorities to take my own advice...

I Thought that I had posted here a long time ago, but I had not. Sorry.
This is my baby. I picked up the stock off of ebay, I believe it was a Choate for a milled reciever. I modified it to fit the rifle. The mags are Gallil 35 rounders and the original Saiga. The vest is actually military issue from when I was in the service. I had made it as part of a Gilly so I had to keep it. The mag pouches were to small so I removed them and made some from BDU's.
Sorry about the bad pictures, but the camera dies and I had to take these from the web cam (Which is also about to die). Good shooting.

So far pretty standard with only a Tigr scope-mount and a Simmons 3-9X40. Plan on doing a Druganov conversion with a Choate butt stock, Harris bi pod and an original scope (to begin with) I'm gonna show you when I'm finished. It can take some time, because parts are hard to get over here (Netherlands)

Here's my baby - '04 Saiga 223. Always a work in progress.
Up next she's getting outfitted

She's got:
U.S. G2 FCG - polished to perfection
U.S. ACE Galil PG
U.S. K-Var Nato Buttstock
U.S. Tapco Gas Piston
R.Trunnion Guide - me
Notched Safety Lever - me
Index pin/spring in FSB - me
AK-74 brake & threaded adapter - vjor
Beadblasted Carrier - pistonring8
Threaded barrel - kit from WJM
Yugo AK-47 retainer & sling loop - TheGunHustler

I welded on bayo lugs/rod holders to go with the
extended birdcage hider, cleaning rod & bayo.

However, I like the '74 brake mucho better. I am
in the process of installing a threaded bulgy FSB
and unmodded factory gas block.

In the SKS? Standard detachable 30-rounder. Not sure on the manufacture, though, if that's what you're asking.

Actually, no playing around is needed.


And I DID find a link for them, but it's $50 or so per mag.

If you don't mind adding a bullet guide (see dinzag ;>), the Weigers are apparently available in the 'bullet-guide-required' form here, for $25.99:

http://www.tickbites...om/davids1.html

Look for the "East German AK223 new mags" about half-way down the page. If you are going to buy more than one or two mags, I would recommend that you consider installing a bullet guide, so you can purchase less expensive magazines.

Hrm. Thanks for the info. However, I have a line on an affordable 7.62X39, so may go that way for now. I assume you can easily modify the Saiga 7.62SX39 to take standard AK mags?

I dunno where yall get your steel German Weigers from... That you can snap them right into a Saiga .223.... But I wish you would share...

I just spent an hour last night fitting my newest TWO magazines.

Honestly... it could be done in about 5 minutes, but I was watching a movie, and the dremel made it hard to hear the sound. LOL :lol:

You have to remove metal at the top front where it fits into the receiver, and you have to remove metal above the mag catch so that it will actually *FIT* into the rifle...

I took a long time also, because if you go REALLY slow... you can get them to snap in very easily, but lock in SUPER SOLID!! :up:

Hell, at one point I didnt think I was going to be able to get one back out... cause it was "just to the point" where its ALMOST there... not enough removed to click in EASY... enough removed that it WILL click in (kinda)... Just gotta force on it when they get to that point...

Currently, I have four 30 round, steel weigers, 3 are rock solid... But the first one I did, I ground off too much, and it wobbles a little bit side to side... but it still feeds beautifully.

Picked it up on Thursday afternoon, started the conversion and finished it Friday AM, successfully test-fired Friday afternoon. Works great!

Parts:
US pistol grip (1)
Tapco single-hook G-2 (3)
US-made floorplate and follower (fashioned from a green AR-15 follower and some polymer) (1)

I have a Bulgy triangle side-folder I'm going to add on there as well at some point when I get the balls :unsure:

The Flash supp. is the Bulgy type for 24mm threads. KVAR used to sell them. Midwest Armory has a US made version of them.

The pic lost some resolution from the original.
