    I'm looking for someone in Oregon hopefully no further south than Salem who specializes in AK work. Any suggestions would be great :thumbup:

    Good point :thumbup: No problems, just looking for someone to do Saiga conversions both in 12 gauge and 7.62x39. Looking to fit an original Bulgarian side folding stock to an AK74 stamped receiver currently fitted with a fixed stock. Hope that helps :)

    Doesn't Stoner Arms do Saiga conversions?

    I know a bunch of shade tree gunsmiths that have done it. None I'ld reccomend.

    Haven't used stoner, but I have used Jesse at 7.62. He does great work. I recommend him 100%.

    Worth the wait tho.....

    I second this, but maybe I'm bias as I have helped him with the last few he's done and I do all the refinishing on the guns for him. He'll be back up and running, most likely with help in a couple weeks.

    If the OP is not in a hurry, it will be worth the wait! :thumbup:
