I was wondering if these were interchangable on 7.62 by 39 AKs. Thanks for any info.

The gas port and pin holes will have to redrilled. If you have a drill press and some mechanical knowledge then it can be done without too much effort ...

I don't know how well that would work, the hole in the old gas bloc is drilled at 45 degrees while the newer ones are drilled straight down. I don't think it will work...at least not safely....replacing the barrel is probably a better idea if you can find one.

I did it on my Intrac using a Bulgarian 90 degree GB/FSB combo. The 90 degree port is set back from the 45 port by about an inch and the block covers and seals the old 45 port . So far it works great ...

It does seem like a lot of work. I don't have a drill press. Oh well.

I replaced the Russian one on my Saiga with a Bulgi 90 degree and it fits and works perfect.

What I meant was replacing a 90 degree with a 45 degree. I was wondering if it was possible to make an SAM7 Carbine look more "Type III"ish.

If your thinking of doing this to a SA M-7 Carbine, I wouldn't bother. Sell it and find a SA M-7 Classic ...

As far as I know Saigas already have a 90 degree block, at least all my saigas do, true, it does not have the accessory lug but that's why god created bulgarian gas blocks
