    Anyone know the barrel diameter of the Saiga-12 and Saiga-20...

    a) at the RSB
    b) at the gas block
    c) at the FSB

    Just a thought; it might be simpler to use Saiga bits instead of making new ones up from scratch.

    Yes we just had this discussion about using a Saiga in a different thread. The problem is the bolt face (Saiga shotguns have a 2-part bolt) will not be the correct size. You'd have to machine a new part and then heat treat it. Not sure which would be the better route!

    I haven't had any luck on falfiles.com. I get only one hit with "meeper" + "beowulf", 20 threads with "beowulf" anywhere inside them. I had the search set to "any date" and "all open forums."

    Anyone have a link directly to the thread?

    1biggun mentioned an "L1A1" gas block. The hits I've gotten all turn up for an FAL.

    The FAL has the same barrel to gas piston centerline as an AK?!

    The FALFILES thread did not have any information in it about the build. Only that it was built. I would assume you can contact him to order a build if you have a donor rifle ready.

    Order a build? That would defeat one of the reasons I bought a machine shop of my own.

    I'll see if I can contact the guy through falfiles.com
