Greetings All,

I would like to know the thickness of the receiver on a Saiga rifle. Also I am interested in the profile of the barrel. I have Romanian AK's (1mm receivers, light barrel) and Chinese AK's (1.5mm receivers, heavy barrel) and would like to know how the Saiga compares. Also, is it safe to assume that Saiga's have chrome lined bores?Lastly, I have seen some Saiga(?) conversions that have dimples in the magwell and others that don't

Thanks ,

I am not sure on my barrel but I believe my reciever is 1mm on my .223 someone may correct me though.

Saigas normally come with no dimples. The ones with dimples are allegedly over runs from the military productions. I can't verify this info but there are a lot of differences in the Saiga receivers, dimples, cuts for the bullet guide and the Y dimples for the third pin hole. I read on one forum(can't remember which) that somebody had one with  the sear cut in the rail. The military rifles come out of the same factory so I guess some parts interchange is possible.
