    Fellow Shooters,

    Going "naked" is easy with your Saiga. I had some worries that the FSB on the Saiga .308 would be pinned and welded, but I found out that it was only held in place by pins. Here is a pic of the naked barrel.


    You can see where the cuts are made to accomodate the pinned on front sight. Just a little tap with a mallet and it slid right off. Unfortunately the diamater is still too large for threading a AK47 type muzzle brake onto the end. However..I just might keep her "naked" because I kinda like the look!

    Here she is sans front sight..

    I'll definitely have to add a Ruskie scope now!

    Good Shooting

    Its too bad there isnt a .30 caliber version of the AR50 brake (that i know of...), it would look badass on there.
