Has anyone done a saiga .308 conversion to take G3 mags?
I have a old tapco flat that I destroyed in a failed attempt to bend without as jig some time ago. While taking measurements it seems that if you cut the trigger guard back 3/8ths of an inch and weld it back together you won have to modify the reciever as much. I might not be able to shoot with a thick ass glove but it is plenty wide enough. The magazine housing for the G3 mag must encompas the first two holes of the selector stop and the trigger guard so when you move them back you have to modify the selector stop to stop. It would be easy enough to weld a small stop at the original spot. Clean it up a bit and it could look nice.
The G3 mags are going to need modified. They need the mag catch tab of the AK, and a bigger lip in the front. I will cut around the tab of some AK mags and weld them to some steel G3's I have. I will weld a front lip and grind it to the right fatness. There are other ways but I am going to try this first.
