Adam, I never thought an AK could in fact look *sexy*. All the AK's I've seen so far look great - but not sexy, until yours

Your PSL is pretty sweet too, TrickyDick - I jones to throw my stock of 54R in semi-auto fashion

Looks good, how do you like the TWS pieces?
And since this is here....
My Saiga, converted last night. It awaits a '74 FSB, and then I will fill the holes and Cerakote the rifle (click for bigger picture). Right now, it's wearing the same gear as my SGL-21. I like the consistency lol.

They seem well-made, but only time and use will tell. The forend is awesome, but I really have my doubts about the dust cover. I hope to be proven wrong.

Your Saiga looks like a quality conversion.

Keep us posted, the top cover seems like a great idea, but I feel like it just can't compete with the repeatability of the Kreb's. And is the forend aluminum or polymer? I've been really liking the modular rails lately.

And thank you, til today, it was just a project. After I took it to the range, it has quickly become my favorite (Well.... it will when it's finished, anyway).

Adam, why did you put the rear sight that far forward?

The cover locks in solid, believe me. I've heard a lot of good things about it holding zero without issue. I just want to see that for myself to actually believe it. The forend is definitely aluminum and not polymer.

That said, if the dust cover shows the slightest signs of losing zero, I will have no issue ditching it and picking up a RS 310 mount.

haha Well, it's a small world, now isn't it?

For those curious, the M10 is the brainchild of Clarence. I found it on GB and got in contact with him immediately. I've been wanting to setup a rifle just like this for quite some time, but never got around to it. Clarence is the man.

There are a couple of reasons.

One - the front sight was canted and the the left bracket of the RSB was coming into the sight picture. Moving it forward allowed me to keep that annoyance out of view.

Two - I am sure that the popular belief is that a longer sight radius enhances accuracy, but I could not disagree more when it comes to this type of sighting system. Farther back allows for faster target acquisition and less precision. Farther forward allows for more precision, but creates a considerable loss in the speed in which a target can be acquired. Obviously, it can be too far forward and too far back. That is where shooter preference comes into play.

Currently the rifle is off to JBI Armory to have the front sight/gas block straightened. When I get the rifle back, I am sure that I will move the rear peep sight back a bit, but definitely not all the way.

Adam, both those rifles looks pretty awesome. Your VEPR looks like it has been set up to address almost all the drawbacks of the AK platform. I bet it's a real pleasure to shoot.

It WAS an absolute joy to shoot. I took it to the range twice and tucked it away. Then, someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse and I sold it. No worries though, I have another just like it and plan on picking up a couple of 20" square-backed VEPRs when prices get back to normal. I'd like to do the same thing with a Type 2 square-back and I think it would provide a bit better accuracy due to the stiffer barrel. In my opinion 20" is the sweet spot for 54R.

Agreed. Just save some of those VEPR's for the rest of us!

Looks good, Adam!
I finally finished up my Saiga. Might throw an Aimpoint H1 on there, but the SPARC is serviceable for now. Pro-tip: Rustoleum's semi-gloss High Temp grill is an exact match for the factory Saiga finish... I wouldn't be surprised if it's what they use lol.


Low quality pic, can get a better one tomorrow.
