What do I need?

Recommended Posts

Found me an unconverted Saiga sitting in a pawnshop the other day. BNIB. What all do I need to convert it to a Ak-103 pattern rifle and where can I find the parts? Specifically the Bulgarian front end parts?

Legion USA should have almost all the Russian parts in stock.

FSB, GB, cleaning rod, folding stock kit, furniture. Depending how correct you want it, sourcing the correct 103 rear leaf sight might be a pain.

Legion doesn't see to be getting resupplied. I see where Apex has some new bulgy parts. Can anyone confirm these will work?

Do I need the rear sight block assembly?

Can I use the cleaning rod and muzzle brake from the same rifle? Obviously the muzzle brake would have to be drilled out to 7.62.

 

They are out of the gas tube so I'll have to source that elseware. Anything else I'll need?

The FSB and GB should work fine. You don't need the RSB assembly. Don't forget a lower handguard retainer. You'll want to install that when the barrel doesn't have anything on it. 

Does your Saiga have the lower handguard retainer notches at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions? Some had them from the factory and some didn't. 

Before you drill out the brake, bullet test it to see if a 7.62 bullet passes through it.
