I saw a good step by step tutorial on: AGArms - Saiga
Hope it helps.
Good deal max-- I'm looking forward to it!

Sorry I missed your call today, we were out loading the trailer for the show this weekend.
The Saiga popularity is really catching on. It is the closest anyone is going to get to a complete authentic Russian AK. The conversion isnt that difficult and there are more and more items being made for them every day. We have a few things in works, we have a door breach for the 12 gauge that should be ready soon. I will have the prototype this weekend. We will finally have the production run of the Saiga muzzle brakes that will fit the 7.62x39 and the .223 without having to thread the barrel and it will not be a cheesy set screw set up. We got the first prototypes of the quad rail and tri rail for the 7.62, .308 and the .223 and they are really nice. The 12 gauge quad and tri rails will be coming very soon. I'll post pics of these as soon as we get caught up a little and get some "quality" pictures (I'll need to find someone for that.....guns OK camera" now way).
I just gave one of my S12s a good workout today testing some of the (relatively) cheap Taiwanese 5 round magazines that I recently purchased. I'm very happy with them; they all worked great.
I still need to do the conversion. I'm just going simple, new trigger group in the right spot, reusing the original trigger guard, and a fixed standard length stock/pg in black. I might vent the forward hand grip, but not sure yet how I'm going to do it.
A buddy of mine has an ACE stock with the cut-off tang attachment and it's nice. I like the look, but I'm not sure I want to shoot 3" magnums with my cheek on a metal tube for a buttstock!
Nice link Thanks. That one is nice as far as it goes, I hope they finish it.
That's the type of thing I am planning to do here.
Well, you're one step ahead of me, I don't even have the shotgun yet. LOL
Keep us posted on your conversion progress.
I found another good link. It's a rifle conversion, but most of it will pertain to the shotty as well.
Keep in mind that that site is the opinion of one man and has not been updated in 10+ years and there is LOTS of new ways to skin the ol' cat.

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.
