    Here are the pics, sorry I am late. I had the back of my truck jacked up trying to find out what was making the weird noise. My neighbor came over to see what I was doing and now it looks like my tranny is shot....Oh well, Merry Christmas!

    On to the pics! Some are Suomi mag with a 5.45 trunion to show that. Some are my Saiga .308 with M14 mag in place. More details on that when I have it completed. It is mostly done, but need a few things.

    Someone just needs to talk Buddy at Tapco into making a 20 round Saiga .308 mag. He could use the same plastic he uses to make his SAW pistol grips from. Maybe add a little some more glass to the mix.

    He could sell them at $29.99 each or four for $99 and he would move a ton of them.

    I found them a bit cheaper - gunthings.com has new mags for $16 each. A bit easier on the wallet considering what we have planned for them.

    I'm still interested in the G3 conversion. I have more interest in destroying a $1.00 mag. If ' tweaks can work I may go with that. I'm Ok with doing extra work to the mags if they can work. $20 total for a bag full of mags makes this project an even sweeter deal!

    I pulled the barrel from my old G3 beater parts kit and it is a 22mm trunion Unfortunately, the Yugo is a 23mm trunion, so I am going to play around with that. I'd really rather not use a sleeve and I think I can make it fit by welding a "ridge" to take up the slack. I'm looking at .5mm so that doesn't seem all that bad. I think. If I have to, I'll sleeve it anyway.

    The G3 barrel is thinner at all the AK journal sizes so all parts will need to be sleeved. I figured out that a 3/4" gas pipe I have laying around will work great, because it is undersize in the I.D. and oversize on the O.D. A bit of lathe work will do the trick.

    The G3 barrel is threaded 15x1mm RH and that means the sleeves won't fit. SO I'm going to have to lathe the threads down and re-thread. I think 1/2"x28mm will work. I'm going to make a muzzle brake out of some steel bar I have laying around.

    The G3 barrel pin is in the wrong spot but is smaller than an AK pin. The G3 barrel also needs the extractor notch milled for the AK extractor.


    I monkeyed around with the G3 mag and the Yugo trunion tonight. I think it will work, and will need the same kind of grinding that a Weiger mag needs for a Saiga conversion. That, and welding on the rear mounting lug. , that sound about right to you?

    oh so you're adapting tthe G3 magwell? I'm just going to mod the mags to fit the trunion and magwell.

    Basically I'm doing the mags like a Saiga conversion but with more fitting and grinding. Those mags are too cheap to ignore... for the cost of one M14 mag, I can have a "full load" of converted G3 mags. I *hate* the idea of proprietary mags, but since I like to load out my mags, that will significantly reduce overall investment costs - 1 mag vs. 10!

    Right now I'm looking at this breakout:
    - bentmetal yugo shell
    - yugo 'dark bore' kit
    - home made stock set
    - salvage G3 barrel
    - home made muzzle brake
    - G3 modded mags

    I'm doing the US furniture route to save more cash. I figure this will total around $200 TOTAL cost since I'm scrounging half of this stuff.

    I would worry quite a bit about sleeving a 308 barrel. The place where the pin puts the most load on the trunnion is right where the sleeve will be. Be careful.

    Does it have a manual?

    Seriously, I don't really know. I have a Nikon, and when the USB cable is plugged in, Windows automatically detects it as a removeable hard drive.

    That is looking good so far ,Are ya going to turn down the G3 barrel and put a sleeve over it to fit the trunion >
    Yes, I'm going to sleeve every barrel attachment. I plan to use galvanized gas pipe or something similar. That will be slightly more lathe work, but much cheaper than digging up specialty steel tubing.

    and if ya make the gas block in two pieces like the mini14 is ya can do it to fit whatever . I'd use some 4140 for that because it won't have to be heat treated or anything for strength !!
    Not sure if I would do that, since the grenade-launching Yugo gas block seems beefy enough for anything I could throw at it. I have some steel bar that is mild steel, but we torched it and quenched it, then it rang like a bell! I can't imagine needing anything like that, but you never know. I'm planning to make a M92 style hinge to attach instead of the rear sight block, and weld that to the top cover. That hinge will give me an anchor to let me weld a Galil- or CZ-2000 style rear sight to the top cover and let it stay zeroed. There are a few other "tricked out sniper rifle" things I'm going to add. Your SKS bullpup got me thinking, and I may --- MAY --- bullpup it like this sucker:
