Finally! That is what my wife said when I finally decided which gun she was going to buy me for our anniversary, 22years!!

I remembered seeing a Saiga 7.62x39 at the Rickreall gun show last week and said that is what I want. Didn't think we had the cash for it though so I passed on it. Last night she got tired of me whining about it and told me to just buy the damn thing! I pm'd ABG to see if they still had it. Went over to Corvallis this morning, after making a good deal ( really like dealing with the guys at ABG!) I came home with my brand new Saiga!
Now I need to sell my Lee loading kit so I can buy some ammo!
Just got to say it again, BEST WIFE EVER!

Excellent :) ! Now its time to deneuter it. Move that trigger group forward and install a PG (following all 922r compliance laws of course).

Thanks guys!

Yep, got one 30 rounder.
Plan on doing the trigger move.

Anything I need to worry about/change out with the 7.62?

Is this the newer version that takes the standard AK mags?

Don't know if it'll take AK mags or not. It is NIB with a born on date of Aug 30, 2009. Other than putting an AK mag in and trying, is there a way to tell?

Look at the front of the mags. If there is a dip in the front compared to the sides it will take the standard AK's. If the front is the same height as the sides then it only takes Saiga mags. During the ban is when the Saiga came about with the sporter stock and 10 rd mags to apease the gun grabbers. It also used a different mag which would not allow the use of AK mags. Some people modified the guns but it is easy enough to fix the mags.
 
You may want to try cycling the aftermarket mag. The promag looks to be the AK version with the lower feed lip.

Send me a PM if the Promag doesnt work.

Here is an excellent site that will tell you everything you need to know to do the conversion. (If it doesn't already do so, you can easily convert it to accept AK mags by installing a feed ramp.)

Thanks T_H, I'm surprised also! (Are you my daddy?)

Deadeye: Got some ammo today, cycled both mags just fine. I'll have to wait to actually fire it to tell for sure.
