    Nice write up & pics Gunwolf.


    Now I have two questions
    The 7.62 & 5.45 guides are different, right?
    Those that made there own, what size pipe/tube & what wall thickness for a 5.45?

    I did a .223 saiga a few years back and used the pipe method...I used 3/4" pipe. (wall thickness unknown)
    I had also used the screw in method, so I could test fit for function(feeding) and then remove to "tweak" as nessesary. It took me several tries to fabricate one that functioned nearly perfect.
    I also found that the dual feedramps worked better on the .223 than the 7.62x39.
    I am going to do a 5.45 conversion next, but plan on using a feedramp from a donor 74 trunnion I bought for $20.

    Thanks, 3/4" pipe, I thought I saw that somewhere too but wasn't sure.

    If it's not to much trouble, could you look at the 74 guide and measure the length (front to back) and thickness?

    I'm working on a Saiga and this is the only part I don't have yet.

    I will as soon as I get the 74 trunnion...it's on the way.

    I just built a Bulgy 74...but my son (12YRS old) claimed it.
    so I('m going to do another extensive build on a saiga 5.45x39

    here's my thread with pics of my saiga 762x39 conversion...

    OK
    I found some good pics of some, so I got a good idea how to do one, just looking for as much info as possible.

    That's a nice write up on the build, your doing a great job on it, you should post it over here too.
    I'm doing basicly the same thing to a 5.45, just not pulling the barrel.

    On a .223 you can buy a mag adapter from renegadebuck and use AR mags without a bullet guide. $75 shipped. Nice guy to deal with. Some minor modification to your trunnion may be required. AR mags are available for as little as $5.
    He seems to have quite a few satisfied customers around.
    By the way, no relation to RB, just a good product.

    I started reading this thread and stopped at the internet lawyers interpretations.
    I am not that smart. Did not graduate from Law School.
    Call me stupid, but whenever I have any question I fax a letter to the ATF and they always respond rather quickly. Then I have it in writing and do not depend an any shade-tree legal advise off the internet when it concerns my ass and the Big House
    Don't care how many post that "internet legal adviser" has. I am not attacking anybody here guys....nobody in particular...I am just speaking in general terms.
    Part of this hobby is compliance. I have no issue with that, but rely on the local ATF office for those "clarifications" from time to time.
    I have always just drilled and tapped the bullet guide. Kazillion rounds through multiple Saiga's with them and not one issue.
