I just got a 7.62x39 Saiga at a great price, 200.00 plus 500 rds of ammo. I would like to convert this to a AK configuration. What company or person does this work? the receiver is not dimpled. Does this really matter? Thanks guys
First off, nice score with the rifle and ammo. My sagia doesn't have the dimples either, I think their mostly cosmetic. As for converting, are you looking for just a pistol grip or a full blow AK-103 clone? Doing a basic pistol grip convert is simple enough for someone with a basic knowledge of tools. It took me maybe two hours to do.
Here are some links to help you.
