Planning on upgrading my handguard retainer from the 2nd gen Saiga-AK to the standard flip lever type. Is this possible after fitting the barrel for the previous type? Or is the locking cam in the same position over the barrel?


I plan to do this to both a 223 build as well as a 5.45 build. I've got the Bulgy sight blocks already but plan on finding a couple gas blocks and retainers as well if this will work. Would probably cost too much to have the existing fitted grooves welded up.


What do you guys think?
