    Hey everyone,
    I've decided that I HATE the stock trigger on my .308 Saiga, but love the gun aside from that. Does anyone know of a good trigger to install in it? Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I have an Arsenal 2 stage FCG in my Saiga.
    I hear good things about the Tapco FCG too.
    I like the single hook, some folks like the double hook.
    You will have to at least change to a pistol grip or thumbhole stock
    I've gotten parts at Danzig
    I also have dealt with Mississippi Auto Arms

    Saigas are fun guns to tinker with. This is mine right now.

    Unfortunately the trigger from the S.308 is unlike the other saigas in that they used a long folded piece of sheet metal. Had they just used the same FCG as the other stock saiga rifles I think the S.308 would have a huge following.

    Which brings me to my next point, aside from a "conversion" there is little, if anything one can do to modify the stock fcg.

    Moving the fcg forward and converting her is your best option.
