K-Var has a Bulgarian Kit, but it is for a milled receiver. Anyone know of a kit that I could do on a stamped receiver?

thank you

Richard

None that I know of.

well, if you really want, just get the milled kit and a '74 kit. Use the barrel, bolt, and whatever else you can from the 5.56 and keep everything else as spare parts for future projects.

Or just save yourself the trouble and buy an Arsenal Inc. AK, or just go with the real 5.56 AK, a GALIL.

Okay, converting a Saiga .223 sounds reasonable, but what should the converison cost? Secondly, who could you recommend?

Okay, that was certainly an informative read on the DIY appraoch. Thanks. However, the question remains -- who can do this and how much? In light of the AWB expiration, I want to have a sidefolder included in this project and thus having a qualified smith tackle the job seems to make more sense to me. Any takers? Ideas?
