OK, I am finally starting to pay more attention to AKs. I really want a .308 variant.
Can a folder be put on a Saiga? I am sure they are out there, but I have to ask.
Also, I read that vepr 308 20 round mags were not in the works.
Would there ever be a saiga 20 round mag in 308?
I would like a 16" 308 with some 20's and a folder in a duffel bag for a truck gun.
Can I get there from here or should I consider a different platform?
Thanks in advance
Any folder for standard stamped receivers will work on the Saiga. You will have to do a pstol grip conversion, but that's not really that difficult. Either of these will work and count as an American part:
As for 20's, I've heard conflicting stuff from EAA, so either they will not import them, or they will start importing them next summer. I don't know. There is a guy who has been working on a G3 mag adapter, and he may also be working on mag modifications to allow them to be sed in the Saiga.
The Vepr, as I understand it, has a non-standard receiver, so a folder would have to be specifically made for it. It looks like the rifle can be modified to accept M14 mags, however.
