Ok I screwed up and accidently ordered a 5.45mm bullet guide for my 7.62x39 Saiga, drilled and tapped my rifle and tad da the bolt would not close, I have since ordered the correct bullet guide but the holes don't line up, what I need is a blank 7.62 bullet guide which would allow me to drill my own hole but doubt css has this available. Any sugestions?

Modify the 5.45 BG to work (assuming they're both for round or flat trunnions) or make your own out of a section of pipe. 


I know things

Thanks for ideas, I'm leaning towards modifying the 5.45, welding Imo was always the best way to install bullet guide, even before I f'ed it up, my first attempt will be to modify 5.45, I'll let u know how it goes in a couple days when I can get around to it, ps on a weird note, it will hand cycle rounds from an ak mag with no bullet guide in place, it will be a few days before I can test fire with no bullet guide, it seems the previous owner may have messed with magazine release catch...
