Do it yourself. You get to pick specific parts for you, and save some dough. It is veeeerrryyy easy.

Based on all your other posts, you take firearm design seriously. That's good. So do I.
As a child of the lego generation, I took advantage of any building piece set toys that I could get my hands on. Contrux, Kennex, Legos, and so on. Right now my current love is building and messing with firarms.
I enjoyed converting my saiga. It made me appreciate the simplicity of the AK design. I've posted pictures of my converted saiga, which I consider very bone-stock conversion, numerous times. Here's one of the pics floating around, without the POSP scope.
I was 18 when I did the conversion a year ago. I used a dremel, a pair of needle-nose plyers, and a small hammer and punch set. I had help tapping the trunnion for a bullet guide, just because I'd never done anything like that before. But again, not a hard thing to do.

Sounds like the way to go.
It'll probably be the first project I do.
God willing there's no ban.
Of course, I might do it anyway.

Here is mine:
I am VERY glad I did it myself. it really was not hard to do, I just kind of went through the write up and did it step by step.
Bullet guide from dinzagarms.com
I got a lot of other stuff from tapco
one thing--I wish I'd gotten the Nato length stock, instead of the warsaw length. it's a little too short for me.
you wont regret doing it yourself, just take your time!
