    all so if you get into reloading the grendal can be made from x39 brass if you cant finnd decent priced brass already made.


    a 260 wold be nice. most of my high power irons are 308s.
    I have done a couple barrels for guys with saiga 308,s and they susposedly shot well. they were a light profile like the original so Im a litttle dubvious that they didnt start to walk some as they heated up. I have a couple blanks here and Im doing one for my own 308 Sagia that will see full power loads and its a fast twist barrel to allow me to shoot the heavier bullets. Im hoping for P dogs at 1000 YDS. the other is going to be a 6.5-284

    I have a couple stainless light weight remington take offs in 260 that im going to put on a standard AK trunion and load them on the light side. one will be a pistol with a 14" inch barrel . the other Im hoping for a super light weight AK rifle as a carry around hunting version for my son to use next year.

    I don't know about the Saiga's or much on what recievers are banned or not, I'm not from there, just unfortunately stationed there. I have seen a converted p-grip Saiga for sell out there, though it had some weird contraption for a "bullet button" setup on it from K-var.

    I don't know if the sks receiver is weaker or not, I have heard that some have converted it to 5.56 though, so maybe not to much weaker?

    IO shows a CA legal ak on there site.

    Welcome to I.O. Inc.

    I have read of SKS failures you see very little AK failures. the SKS is a milled reciver and Im not sure how much more mag well room you can get out of one. the 6.5 carcano is a lot longer round. IMOO you would be much better off getting a saiga in california trim in 308 ( if possable) and swaping in a 260 remington barrel you could likely do the barrel swap fro around $150 .

    WHY WOULD YOU NEED A PERMIT?? IF THE GUN IS LEGAL YOU DONT NEED A PERMIT TO HAVE IT IN CALIFORNIA. YOU MIGHT HAVE TO REGISTER IT OR SOME THING BUT THAT IS WITH ANY FIREARM YIOU BRING IN. ITS ONLY ILLEAGLE IF ITS ON THE BANNED LIST OR MEETS SOME OTHER ILLEAGEL DESCRIPTION. A SKS WOULD NOT BE ANY DIFFERANT.

    I meant my other "evil" weapons I have in FL. I would need to apply for CA's aw permit they have for military personel to bring in my standard config AKs and sig556. I'm not doing that, they don't need to know I have them, and I shouldn't have to have anymore paperwork on them.
