I want to put some conventional vintage AK wood furniture on my recently converted .308. I understand there will be fitment issues to overcome with the wood hanguard and the larger diameter barrel.


However, my concern/confusion is with gas tubes. I understand the gas tubes may require a little fine tuning with a file in order to get it to fit just right on my 308, but did not want to purchase the wrong tube. Did a search here and read "an ak-74 tube MIGHT fit".


When I shop for "ak-74" tubes, the listings or ads say "compatible with ak-74, ak-47. or ak-100 series rifles". So am a little confused. Will a standard ak47 gas tube fit the saiga or not? If  not, then which one will be  the best fit for my saiga?


Thanks, YD
