    Default Side folder info, w/links

    I don't want to upset anyone that did the work so I'm posting links to Saiga12.com.

    After it was discussed in another thread about the Russian style side folder I did some searching and found some good info.
    It appears the standard AK100 rear trunion can be used with minor mods, clearance for the bolt carrier, and the front locking hook can be made but still looking for dimensions of that.

    This thread shows good detail of the conversion, he used mostly Russian parts but you'll find great info and pics, also shows what mods are needed to the AK100 rear trunion (post# 53).
    sKott's Saiga 12-C Conversion - forum.Saiga-12.com

    This one was done with an ak100 triangle side folder and a home made front latch made from aluminum.

    I'll post more info when I find it.

    You welcome PatJ, I got the stock & rear trunnion assembly already, just need the front hook thing that hold the stock in the folded position.


    I don't think Scott is doing anything for the 12C style side folder, the main thing I need to find is info on the front hook (by the trunnion), they are impossible to find and it seems like no one wants to give up any info about it.

    Well I just spent a few hours looking again and found two more threads at The AK Forum.
    The one has a good pic of the front latch assembly. But still no dimensions.

    Coils... I finally dug into my stuff today and it appears the front latch that I have is not the same as the one in your links. the one oleg sent me is the same as a standard bulgarian one.

    I can still get pics if you like.

    I already have one of the standard AK style front latch thing, so we're still in the same boat.
    Thanks for the offer though
