I have a Saiga in .308 coming at the end of this week (shipped 10/4) from CDNN down in Texas. I?ll be taking a look as soon as it comes and post what I learn. I?m thinking of doing a conversion to a pistol grip configuration and need to know what standard and thus replaceable parts it has. I?m hoping the piston and trigger group is standard so I can trade them out. The reason I want the pistol grip is because I have Arthritis and Carpal Tunnel and a straight stock is getting uncomfortable to hold and shoot. Oh! and because the pistol grip has a certain cool factor too.chopchop said:Are the saiga 7.62Nato "sporting" rifles the same as a standard ak internally?
Specifically, will a Red Star Arms trigger fit in a Saiga 308 or Saiga 12 without modifications?
Any links for more info? This is good. DSA has 30 round FAL mags for sale too.Fargo said:Actually the Fal mag conversion is very straight forward if you have a welder.
Widen the front of the mag well. Then weld a tit on the trunion in the front.
Then drill a hole in the front of the FAL mag that hooks in the tit.
Thats about it from what I have heard.
