    Can't go wrong with a Saiga. What caliber is that one and what trigger setup did you use? Here's my converted 5.45:

    I ditched the SAW style grip I used on mine initially for a Hogue AK-47 grip and like it a whole lot better,

    Otherwise mine looks pretty much like yours except I used a UTG AR-AK stock adapter with the ATI stock to get a bit less OAL fully collapsed.

    I've always been satisfied with the Tapco single hook trigger -- way better than the stock Chinese or Romanian AK triggers (I've also converted a few Norinco thumb-holes and made a Draco-C SBR). The Saiga "wishbone" trigger is an abomination and reason alone to convert!

    nice, what muzzle accessory is that? I just finished threading my Saiga's barrel and added an extended slant brake, for now. I couldnt decide on which, if any, other brake I liked, so I went cheap and basic. Last things for my Saiga will be the bullet guide kit for Dinzag, but for now my Saiga-spec mag works just fine. And maybe a railed forgrip, but not in a hurry.
    I too, am a fan of the Hogue AK grip, nothing wrong with the SAW style though, used to have that on a WASR.

    Cool. Kinda wish mine had the adjustable buttstock instead of the fixed Warsaw I had.

    That scope mount is a bit high though.

    Mine is the 7,62 Nato /308 Win. The muzzle brake I made at work during some down time. The Red Dot sitting that high is not to bad at all.

    Gotta love a Saiga, I agree with a previous poster though, can't beat the Houge Ak grip.

    Let us know! I would like to get a semi-auto in a caliber such as that, but i don't want to go AR-15.

    I have the fully converted 308

    I have not noticed any recoil with the collapsible stock and new guard rail.

    I have a x39 Saiga unconverted and a converted 308 and 12 ga. I left my x39 unconverted because I like the conventional carbine look and feel. The trigger on the 308 was so bad I had to convert it and of course the converted 12 ga is just cool as heck. I bought all mine back in 2000 & 2001 when they were cheap.
