    Very nicely done!! I have a neighbor (and wife) that thinks that the report is "too loud". Wish I could dampen the sound a bit, without the suppressor route, of which are illegal in Michigan. Dumb law!!

    Very cool..!

    If you could get a left side folder (with trunion) on there with either a skeleton or polymer stock, you would earn some extra "style" points..!

    Pretty nice.

    I was considering a similar setup, but went with the more common AK-101 style. At least that's how it is SO FAR.

    Wow, that's a really nice looking rifle you have. I really like the FSB and 74 brake.

    I have a damaged Saiga receiver that got run over by a truck at the range parking area. How do you remove the Saiga trunnion with the hardened bolt turning rivet?

    Hardened bolt turning rivet? Not sure what that is.

    Demill should be similar to any AK. I use a drill press to drill out the old rivets after grinnding them flush to the receiver with a grinding wheel.

    Well it looks like a rivet. It's the hardened stud that the bolt cams on when it closes, instead of camming on the bullet guide.
