Finally got my Saiga .223 done. It is not a "Correct" AK by any means but It works for me... I am actually quite fond of it.... front sight pushed off and pin holes re-welded then turned 1/2 x 28 and AR15 flash suppressor installed. The HK sights (RTG parts - cheapest I found) welded on. HG is TAPCO... wish I would have put a HG rt. on when I had the barrel off but oh well.... I see a rail HG up there in the future. SAW grip, holes in receiver welded up, KVAR stock, surefire mags... sling I made (LMK if you want one - I have extras ) Tapco FCG. Rear sight block welded up (amazing job there by Trident) Many thanks to TRIDENT INDUSTRIES Corvallis, Oregon and 762llc of Albany, Oregon for all their help...... You cant go wrong with those guys!
