The sickness continues

Recommended Posts

So a couple weeks ago I came across an S410 for $300 and just couldn't pass it up. I thought the days of $300 Saiga's were over but I guess not. Here is number 3 for me. Not sure where this build will go but here is how she sits today.

Did it come as only that or in the "sporter" configuration looking like an SKS?

No it came to me as a full functioning gun but I couldn't help but start tearing it down. I don't even have any conversion parts yet. Waiting for pay day.

Cool. I was honestly tempted to get a .410 at first but couldn't find any on the market so I go my 433 S12.  What're you planning to do for this conversion?

I'm going to keep this one looking like an AK. Polymer AK stock and maybe front end conversion, or maybe a Galil handguard. Not sure yet. Either way I am excited to do another conversion.

Well polymer AK is better than "maximum tactical! everything is quadrails!" XD

 

[i'm more partial to wood furniture as well as skeleton stocks.]

No rails for me, they don't belong on my AK's.

 

I just got a .410 as well an I'll be putting the new Magpul Zhukov furniture on it in plum!

I like both, wood of various flavors, and 100 series black poly. More partial to wood as well, but the latter has it's place.

The tapco saiga "galil" handguards were not really very galil like. They were weak, huge, crude and ugly, Stay far away. They were discontinued for a reason. Their intrafuse forend is decent though.

Agreed, I had a tapco galil on my first saiga 12 for about 17 hours before I took it off. It's wide, cumbersome and flimsy feeling. I also went with the Intrafuse to replace it, it's slim, sturdy, practical and relatively cheap. Plus you have the OPTION of rails, so if you don't need 'em you can toss 'em.

I've actually been surfing gun porn the past few evenings to brainstorm how to fix up my 410. I'm thinking a PDW type build, sbs'd with a troy like stock and MP5ish handguard. I like traditional looks too, but I'd rather have that in a rifle, the shotguns are oddballs so I'm comfortable taking a few creative liberties with them hahaha.
