    I have one coming from DPH Arms also. UPS site sez it's out for delivery. The FFL holder I always use is about 5 blocks from the Seawall in Galveston. Waiting to see if it gets delivered ???

    Going to also be doing a conversion. Will be watching what you do with yours. Lots of choices. I've been thinking of a Russian black plastic sidefolder. Cut down barrel and rethread, then silver solder on muzzle break to bring it out to the legal length w/o having to go SBR route.


    Did I do that?

    Already I have found at least 3 distinctly different approaches.

    There are at least two companies that market TG/PG assembles like these. This to me is no challenge, this makes it stupid easy.
    I will not be going this route. I bought a Saiga to at least be able to get my hands dirty.
    1) That assembly is only for the Saiga-12 at this point.

    2) I've (and I'm sure we all have) 'gotten my hands dirty' on many Kalashnikov builds.

    Please don't make this out to be something difficult. It isn't.

    If you can build an AK from a kit, this is gonna be sorta like eating chinese food. Done in an hour and wonder what work you actually did . . .

    I realize that compared to my normal projects that this will not present much of a challenge. But I still want to do something a little less "plugNplay" than one of these bolt on adapters.
    I plan on using a regular T nut for the PG and a modified AK TG.
    It is scheduled to be delivered Today. I'll get the rivets and spotwelds drilled out this weekend and then make my final decisions.

    How about making a sticky in the library for all resource data (prints, etc) ?

    UPS website now tracks my order with the following message;
    'EMERGENCY CONDITIONS BEYOND UPS' CONTROL / DELIVERY RESCHEDULED'



    Did I do that?

    Way ahead of Ya.
    I put some prints in the library this morning. I'll add whatever else we come up with as we go along.

    Sorry to hear that yours got delayed. According to UPS, mine is "out for delivery"

    You're like me... tinkering with it is part of the fun. Exploring the design and finding new ways to skin the proverbial cat can sometimes lead to new innovations and ideas. If I wanted "plugNplay" I'd buy a Benelli shotty and an AR-10.

    There is a screw-on "paradox choke" (paradox meaning that it is rifled and designed to work on a smoothbore barrel) but I want to see how it patterns slugs without one before I buy that choke. I have a few reload recipes I'm going to try. I'm aiming (pun intended) for groups small enough to hit a pie plate at 100-150 yards. And from what I've read, that should be possible with a properly tweaked load. That should be good enough to hit the vitals on any 4- or 2- legged meat target.
