Saiga .308's have been converted to take HK G3/HK91 mags as well as M14 mags. VEPR .308's haven't been converted to any mags that I have known about in the last few years. Dont know of any that have taken FAL mags.

Tony Rumore at Tromix is converting US M14 mags to fit Saiga 308s. I have two ordered for my 16" Saiga, but he is still in the r&d stage. There is a thread going at the Saiga-12 forum.

Any reason not to buy a FAL carbine?

I own a DSA SA58 Carbine and it is becoming one of my favorites. I picked it up used for $800. Mags go from $5 to $12 each and are strong and reliable.

The .308 FAL compliments a 7.62x39mm AK quite nicely.

I have an Imbel 16" barrel FAL carbine, it weighs in at 8.5 lbs and I added an AR style rear sight, now it is perfect and even more ergonomic than an AR. My DPMS AP4 .308 16" carbine weighs 8.5 lbs as well. I wouldn't want a .308 to be any lighter than this, way too much recoil if it gets much lighter.

Try their U.S. made extended safety switch (metric) - It looks a little ungainly until you try it. I couldn't think of any way that any Kalashnikov platform would be more ergonomic than a FAL in this configuration.
