    Yeah, I know: For geeks only, but I have for sale my Saiga, which started out as a brand-new standard POS Saiga "SPORTER" but which I converted to AK configuration. All the extra holes were welded and the necessary parts were replaced for compliance, including RSA adjustable trigger, piston, etc. It has the Saiga bolt hold-open, which is also blued. It has a Commie trigerguard with Commie mag catch.

    I also converted it to carry a Polish underfolder trunnion and stock, using all-new parts. The stock and all trunnion and lock-up parts were rust-blued separately, and the works locks up tightly. Being a lefty, I modified the workings such that the pushbutton to release the stock can be moved to the right side or the left side. I'm a lefty, so it is currently on the right side, along with the rear sling swivel. Both can be swapped to the other side in minutes.

    I stripped all the crappy paint off of it and genuinely rust-blued all the metal, inside and out, save for the chrome bore. I am telling you that that that is a metric ***-load of work, but it was all worth it because it's not just another Kryloned, thrash-can-worthy AK. It looks like someone cared enough to make it look like a proper firearm. There's a thread on arfcom about the process I went through to do this. It looks really good.

    I've shot maybe 100 rounds of Commie ammo through it. It shoots as well as lousy AK sight allow. It has an AK-74-style muzzle brake that is also rust-blued. It shoots sweet and true. Comes with all the AK mags I have, which is maybe 5 30-rounders and a few 20-rounders, plus a ling and all the other crap I might have laying about for it.

    Here are some pix:

    These are all after rust-blueing.

    It's a real Russian-built semi AK. It's more beautiful than any Russian eve built one. I want $1300/obo for all, or trade on a nice M1 Garand..

    Job well done. It's a handsome ak. I never would have guessed it was a saiga! Free bump for the awesome work!

    Very, very nice. Have you actually tried to shoot some groups, and if so, how did it do shooting, "shoots sweet and true?"

    I haven't gotten serious about groups. I built it with the idea that it would be for fast, practical shooting, mostly off-hand. It works great for that. I can knock over cans and bottles as well with it as any other gun I own, and I even took it out deer hunting a few days and am confident it would be capable of accuracy good enough for that. My eyes don't work well with those type of sights, so attempts at precision shooting would just reveal the limits of my vision, rather than those of the gun.

    If someone were to offer you a full cash offer would you be willing to swap the push button to the left side of the rifle?

    Sure. Takes just a few minutes to change it.
