    renagade buck was and there was some body out it in texas that took forever to deliver.

    i put on on a 223 ak. it ain't no cake-walk less your building from the ground up.

    all kinds of shit has to be trimmed back , things that can break while shooting. if your building from the ground up with the ar mag well then you can work around these problems.

    had i known how involved these ar i probably would have headed everyones advice and skipped the conversion.

    I just posted on this in that thread, if your trunnion will except a wieger mag then this unit is good to go , if it excepts narrow mags like a norinco or polish beryl mags you will need to modify the trunnion under the bullet guide, using a ar-15 mags as guide for how much to mill out

    yea thats them. trunnion had to be trimmed far more than i liked to do.

    it does run fine --but it is more for the virgin build thing than a conversion.

    had i used that block to build on a kit i think it would have went much smoother with less cutting on things that might go --snap-crackle-pop on the range. --LOL!

    Yeah that's the other one, guy changed the name to Texas (something) because of his poor business running, they do seem nice but don't buy direct, get it through another company if anyone wants one

    shannon aka cobra2 has them (at least on the saiga board). i have a pair. i am going to opt for trimming the adapter more and the trunnion less. there is enough meat on the adapter to make it work. at that point the trunnion gets a small amount of trim work to clear the mags.

    There is another adapter for Saiga's which is permanently attached. It also has LRBHO. I forget the name, but it can be found on AR15.com. The rifle is shipped and the vendor mods the trunnion and attaches the adapter. The vendor mentions that, unlike some other adapters, less has to be removed from the trunion (adapter is located farther back). The basic adapter and machining is around $300.

    Texas AK designs makes an adapter and a new, more permanent adapter with LRBHO. The vendor, vendor's website, and literature recommends a gunsmith (not just a machine shop) perform any machining.

    Having a turn-key job at a single site makes the permanent adapter look appealing, especially if the gun returns fully function tested.

    That's it, Magnolia State Armory (MSA) is the one that switched to Texas AK Designs.
