I need a decent picture(s) (or a link to pix) of the top of a factory SAIGA 7.62 mag....with a clear view of the top/front that shows what feeds the cartridges (The part that is unlike a regular AK mag)
I already looked around on the Saiga site......no dice.
I know about the feed ramp mod to Saigas but I had a deal with a Saiga that was supposed to come with two mags. After months of waiting for the mags, I get shipped a pair of regular AK mags that someone had thinned the tab on to lock into a Saiga.
I will eventually mod this rifle into a pistol grip with a propper ramp conversion , but I expected Saiga mags (for future trading or just to have) and this is not what I got
The mags lock into place correctly but careful cycling of the bolt with a single round just shoves the cartridge into the area under the chamber (like I expected) A couple times it would feed propper when I just let the bolt slam forward....but Im in my apartment downtown and Id just as soon not keep loading a live round as I play with it.
Thanks for your help.
Thank you Andy.......exactly what I needed.
