    Default Saiga 12 Conv.

    19" barrel. Hogue rubberized pistol grip.
    MD Arms 20 rd. drum, Ace folding stock.
    G2 trigger (double hook), using the original hammer.
    Made my own trigger guard out of heavy gauge stainless.
    Test drive tomorrow.

    Looks nice.
    I'm just curious as to why you chose to use the factory hammer instead of the one that came with the G2?

    The stock hammer was already fitted for width to fit beside the
    bolt hold open plate, which hinges on the hammer's axis pin.
    It was just an expedient thing to do.

    Looks good! I bet that Hogue grip feels nice.

    I want to hear more on the Hogue pistol grip, I'm thinking of getting one but have'nt heard anything from someone who actually has one.

    There have been reports of doubling and even more fun events happening when the Russian FCG parts are mixed with Tapco versions.

    Be wary.

    Late development.
    Had another day off, and was looking at Quad-rails for my Saiga.
    $200 is not my idea of being able to use a vertical fore-grip.

    After many brain farts. I went to my local auto parts store and
    bought an 18" section of 1-3/4" exhaust pipe.

    I studied the plastic stock forward lower, and put the pipe in my
    large vise and mashed it to match contours of stock item.
    Installed a picatinny rail on the bottom, plug welded it in.
    Mimicked the Cetme hole pattern on the lower.
    Welded on a G3 front and rear sight.
    Hot damn! I feel more satisfied now.

    [The Hogue Grip is a winner, a slight cushion effect, very ergonomic]

    Thanks for the info on the grip.

    And DAMN you did get a lot done!!! Looks even better

    Favor asking time.
    Can you try to get a pic of the sight picture, close to how it would look when you look through those sights?
