    Default Saiga trigger guard

    Starting work on a 5.45 conversion.Was wondering if an AK 47 trigger guard would work?

    Wanting to have more of an original look, I plan on removeing the mag release also and want to replace with an original guard and mag release. Just wanted to know if it would work before I drill it out.

    Just wondering. I used my original when I did my conversion and it turned out fine. You have to cut off the long end so it doesn't interfere whit the grip.

    A 47 trigger guard will work fine. The only difference is the later 74s had a dimple in the mag release.

    Be careful fitting an AK47 trigger guard/mag catch to a 5.45 rifle. The 47 mag catch is usually cut shorter than one for a 74, and you may wind up with a loose mag. You can always Tig up the catch, if you are so equiped, or replace the catch!
