Saiga-12 garage conversion...
Mako folding stock with cheek piece adjustment, K-var grips, MD Arms plug and flash hider, Arsenal trigger group, RS Aimpoint mount.Riveted AK-builder trigger group with re-inforcement plate.

Although you can shoot the gun with the stock folded, the cheek piece must be all the way down and it is hard to cock the gun or operate the safety. I would have preferred to have the stock fold to the left, but the hinge mechanism makes it impossible to slide the scope mount on and off.

Is this do'able?

I want to move the front sight back as close to the long Saiga handguard as possible, chop the barrel, and weld a flash hider on it maintaing 16" OAL.

Also who makes the farthest extending railed handguard for a Saiga 7.62?

yes. But to do it yourself, you're running into a grey area. If you're going to post it on the net, I'd find someone with a proper license to modify weapons to do it for you.

Are there any other issues outside of 922? Or is a permanenttly attached muzzle device on a shorter barrel frowned upon?

Only thing I can think of would be the brief period between cutting the barrel down, and permanently attaching the flash guard. During that timeframe, you'd be in possession of an illegal SBS. I can't really think of anything else that would be problematic.

Bingo. For a period you have a short barrel. When permanently attaching, 922r does not affect IIRC

It would be done by another party, likely one with an SOT.

OK, so I am new to the board so please be kind...

I have a SGL21-61 that I would like to have converted so I can put a multi-position stock on it. I have no tools, no experience, and no time to try to do the conversion myself, (although I think it would be really cool to learn how to do it.).

Is there a trust-worthy person in the Houston-Sugar Land, TX area that could do the conversion for me?

TIA,

Jim

Noticed your working on getting rid of the match striker. How did it turn out?

well I ended up smoothing it out w/ JB weld like bondo and refinished it. Not baby-butt smooth, but came out ok.







it actually looked about 10 times better in person, the camera really magnified the flaws. That being said, I'd rather let someone who really works w/ metal do it next time. Hopefully people snag them all up and new ones start coming w/o the old importers mark scrubbed.

So, you just sanded it down, filled with JB weld and smoothed that out?

I'm thinking about trying to do the same.

pretty much. Used my dremel and a cutting wheel attachment. Slow and steady then used JB weld like it was bondo. Thin amount, let dry and sand down.

It's a perfect match in person and under a camera flash.. only way I can tell is because there is a ridge where the paint met the tape.
And an easy way to avoid the "ridge" is to not use ANY tape what so ever. Look ma', no ridge! It helps blend the paint too for an 100% factory look. Thats how I do mine and it comes out perfect every single time.

Hmm - I was going to settle for leaving the pins in there, but since yours looks so nice I may try it. What did you use to refinish it? Seem like I heard that JBWeld doesn't take to refinishing well, but no so with yours. Could this be done w/ plain jane sandpaper (Saiga noob here)?

Impressive cammo. I have to say that is a good job with the choice of base color then choosing relevent contrasts to include the shadowing.
