    Another option.....full mags are easy enough to insert with just a minimal amount of practice. None of my AK variant rifles have a BHO except Romak-3, Yugo with BHO mags and the Saiga 12. Never really used the BHO feature. Could always just get rid of the BHO.


    Did I do that?

    I was in the garage tonight and refinished my Saiga 12 with Gunkote over park but while I was at it I did the mod to the BHO like Zulu shows in the photo. It is a big improvement on feel while pulling the trigger. Thanks Zulu

    Does the Saiga 12 BHO hold the bolt back past the magazine?

    I see Zulu has shown you a pic of my Converted Saiga from Lancaster Arms. I have function tested it and everything seems fine but a good range day will surely help me decide if any changes need to be made. I will update on how the BHO feature works and of this feature is worth keeping.

    Here's the Saiga conversion I'm doing at home with the modified BHO lever. I'm trying a Tapco SAW PG on it. Between the wider Tapco PG (vs that of std AK type PG) and the BHO lever mod, my trigger finger no longer contacts the BHO lever at all. Much better !!!!

    If I keep the SAW PG, which I think I will, I'll have to remove PG reinforcement plate. Right now it is only riveted in by rear rivet for TG. Have not spot welded it in yet........probably a good thing because I really like the feel of the Tapco SAW PG on this firearm. Could always fab up a custom reinforcement plate to match the Tapco SAW PG mounting face.

    BTW - finish is paint over park (Gunkote flat black)

    According to those that have received them, the MD20 will not go in with the bolt closed unless you download it to 19.
    I've got one on order, but it's not due to be shipped until January.

    Your BHO mod looks good, I haven't done mine yet, but plan to soon.

    Yes it does. I will need to get some pics to show exactly how far back it locks from the mag. This is not the picture just wanted to show it off again.

    Yes it does
    The twenty guage BHO stops the bolt face about halfway into the magazine well and not behind it.
    That's why I asked.
