With all of the awesome 12 pictures I was wondering what US parts had to be installed to make the conversion to keep them legal. I would like to build one since they look so bad ass. If you could please share some info I would be greatful.

Standard AKs require 5 US parts to be subbed in; I used a US-made FCG (hammer/trigger/sear), pistol grip and buttstock in my Saiga-12. I've heard that fewer US parts are required for Saiga shotguns, but I decided to err on the side of caution.

Check over at the Saiga-12 forum, they state only 4 US parts are needed in the Saiga-12 conversion, I used pistol grip & fcg in mine.

Here's the ATF letter stating that the Saiga shotgun has 13 evil parts:
