Can you guys post some pictures of SAR 2 rifles for me?They do not have to be your own,I am just looking for ideas.I cant seem to find anyone to do the work i need done so i guess I ll have to by the tools and learn to do it on my own rifle.
I am really looking for SAR 2 rifles made to look like AK74's.I have a SAR2 that I want to add a 74 front sight base,and a Krink style side folder too.I have the parts but no one to do the work!I just need some pics that I can look at and use as reference.Thank You.

Well, the sidefolder would be a real bitch to add. You'd have to drill out the old rear trunnion rivets, make a bunch of cuts in the receiver, weld up the front-most rivet hole by the selector, drill a new hole, rivet in the new trunnion, and refinish the receiver.

That is a nice looking SAR2,did you install the front sight base yourself?I have heard that you have to shim the AK74 front sight base to get it to fit the SAR2 's barrel.

Is that a Bakeilite upper on your SAR-2? If so, now that she is all business would sell it or know where to aquire another? I want to do a AIM-74 build and need one of the AIM-74 uppers.

Sorry, I had it professionally done. I wanted it done right for this gun. I would get the bulgy front site base if I were to do it again. Ps. Get one before they sell out and you have to wait 2 -3 years before the are imported again

jithaca,

It was bakelite but I've already sold it. It came from K-Var, but I see they are out.

Sorry..............

The bulgarian front sight base does not fit the romanain '74. That may be why you are talking about 'shims'; although I've never heard of anybody using 'shims' to put a front sight base on. Not saying it can't be done that way, but that's not the right way to do it.

You need a romanian front sight base, with a romanian or romanian spec muzzle brake. It's just a matter of press and pin with the right parts.

Thread the barrel for 1/2-28 and then get one of the 24mm adapters from Global Trades. Works like a champ.

You can get a Romi FSB from K-var,then the 22mm MB from ak-usa,they did a great job replicating it..run ya about 50$ for FSB and 65$ MB=115-120 $

Pretty basic...

- Bulgarian synthetic stock set.

- 22mm brake adapter, courtesy of Investment Grade Firearms (IGF).

- Global Trades U.S. made 22mm muzzle brake. (No longer available).

- $5 can of high-temp ceramic engine paint.


Need to install a better fire control group- probably a G2. The original Century parts are horrid.

How hard is the FSb install? I don't have access to a drill press.

Here is a pic of my two sars which I had the FSB installed professionally... They have the AKUSA brakes....

Thanks everyone for the pictures and the tips on the SAR 2 mods,this is one of the reasons I cant stay away from this board,all of the help and info available.Thanks Again!

If the bayo lug is not important to you, then easiest modification is to get a 1/2X28-22mm adapter and install it on the barrel and that way you can use the 22mm Romanian brake. That's what I did on my two SAR 2's and I'm totally satisfied.
