    do you have a drill , hammer , couple punches, misc hand tools, its an easy job, I did mine in 1.5hrs and could do one now in 1/2hr....there are you-tube videos step by step how to, moderate skills required

    Edit: while its apart do the bolt mod, its well worth the time and effort.....google Saiga 12 bolt mod....basically removing some material off the bottom of the bolt then polishing ....aids in cycling and inserting the loaded mag without having to hold the bolt open

    It's very easy to do yourself. There are videos on Carolina Shooters Supply website that will walk you through the steps.

    I did the conversion on a Saiga 7.62 and it was pretty simple. If you have some basic mechanical skills and know how to use a drill and a dremel, you'll be fine.

    I would check out Sicario on the forum. He just finished my 223 and its looks great. I haven't functioned tested it yet though, but he is real easy to deal with and charges a reasonable price. He also seems like someone who really just likes to convert Saigas.

    Here is a link to his site.
