hey it worked . you notice how only the last part of the 308 (LH) is full diamiter and that the cut out in the stem is slightly differant, the sagia pin is spring loaded as well.
I wish some one would build a three lug trunion and bolt. so i could build match grade varmity rifles to my heats content HINT HINT. If I had the cash I would do it.
the trunion is basicaly the same as a yugo except there is a feed ramp and there are buldges on bolth sides HMMM the saiga bolt is wider as well it will not fit into a standard trunion. the bolt face is further forward as well. 1.083 across the saiga lugs vs 1.017 on a bulgy 223 bolt (same as a 7.62x39 also)
bulgy bolt on the right 308 Saiga on the Left
the over all length is differant as well 3.349 bulgy vs 3.437 saiga
