My Saiga 12
I thought I'd share some pictures of my converted Saiga 12.
It has a K-VAR buttstock and US pistol grip.
All extra holes were filled by TIG welding small dimples of sheetmetal in place.
Has a Red Star Arms adjustable trigger group.
Trigger guard is a cut down Hungarian piece with a custom selector stop.
Scope is a PK-AS-S that I bought from Tantal.
Sling is a blue/gray DDR AK-74 sling that I simmered in black RIT dye.
very nice. nice russian backdrop there.
+1, Both the shotty and pics look excellent.
I like that scope - makes infinitely more sense to have that configuration vs. a typical red dot. Very nice!
I love the PK-AS on my saiga 12...
best set up I could think off...
Nice conversion. Makes me want to start the conversion on mine.
Nice conversion, I like the why you did the pics too.
Does anyone know if the PK-AS-S scopes are still available anywhere?
Probably via Tantal, or Freedom Optics... ??? :dunno: I need to get one too!
ETA - Freedom has only the weaver-style mount currently listed. Also, you can get them from Russia ? here:
Rifle scopes, NAYVIS Night vision sights. Retail prices. - $350!!!
That's from Belarus.:bleh:
Thank you HCP, if I can't find one with an AK style bracket I think I'll get one of the weaver mount ones.
