Are these coming in 223 and other calibers???

I think I'll pick one of these up pretty soon. Too bad the tax man took my entire Christmas bonus...

They've had them in 7.62 for a while now if that's one of the "other" calibers you're interested in.

I forget. Are these rifles ready for double stack mags and do they need a bullet guide if converted?

Looks like they still need the bullet guide.

Thread protector is tac welded?

Any word on 5.45 mags????
Link Posted: 1/6/2012 12:52:44 PM EDT
Tac weld can be removed easily with a dremel. I would like to know if it can use hi cap mags without alteration. I've seen way too many dremel hack jobs gone wrong to try and do it myself.

It's my understanding one is not installed but is required. Glad to hear it can take regular mags.

My 5.45 Saiga worked fine using surplus poly mags without a bullet guide.

Are these 16" barrels? They look long to me.

EDIT: Are they chrome lined?

Everything I have read about the Saiga 5.45's is that a bullet guide is not needed.

Here is my $460 Saiga IZ332 7.62x39 from Atlantic after a $200 conversion.

The $200 included an AK74 brake not in the picture.



I hope these 5.45 rifles stay available for awhile (maybe tax time), I had enjoyed doing the conversion, and am pleased with my purchase.
The thread protector was removed with a dremel with no problem.

Can you use the 30rd magazines with the bone stock gun or do you have to install us made parts in order to stasify 922r?

You will need to comply with 922r if you use a magazine larger than 10 rounds. This is why they 'need' a bullet guide to run high cap magazines.

actually as long as you keep it in sporter configuration i dont believe you need to worry about 922 when using hi-cap mags. read that somewhere ill see if i can find it.

Sweet rifle! You can't beat the price.
Link Posted: 1/7/2012 3:19:45 PM EDT
Just a little out of my price range.

If it was $399 would buy one to shoot 7N6 out of. For $300 difference, I'd rather have the SGL31

This rifle really is appealing to me, and I'll probably order one (or 3) as soon as funds allow. The earlier saigas didn't really appeal to me due to the different fore end and the difficulty and expense of conversion. I don't think the price is bad at all considering.

Nice.
Any possibility of importing 5.45x39 Vepr rifles?

Taking the rifle from sportier configuration to Ak 74 military style pistol grip configuration.
It means removing the stock, moving forward the trigger, installing the grip, new stock, adding a muzzle break, and filling in the existing holes.

Hi!

Converting refers to moving the fire control parts forward in the receiver (this allows use of regular ak stocks and pistol grips) or replacing the components such as the front sight base and gas block with original parts with bayonet lugs or accessory lugs. So in all, when you convert a saiga, you are 'de-sporterizing' it to make it look like its military counterpart.

When saigas are imported, they come in sporter configuration in accordance with import laws.

Edit: ^ what he said!
