Hey ya'll, So finally finished my Saiga 12 conversion a couple days ago. It wasn't really that bad, but a couple parts took me longer than they should have. I'd allocate 3-6 hours if you're doing it for the first time. Probably only an hour or two if you've done it before. I used a Tromix stock, and FCG, and a Carolina trigger guard. Quad rail and hand guard from K-var. Drilling out the rivets is easy, just take your time. Had to hacksaw off the rear upper "tang" (?) to put in the internal stock adapter. So no "going back." Springs were kind of a pain. Everything just took a bit. Anyway, one more part is waiting for me at the post office. A Tromix "shark break" for the end of the barrel. Also, still deciding what to do about sights. Getting close! Exciting. Everything seems to function. A-ok...can't wait to take it out to the range. I would have had more pix, but got sick of filming about a third of the way thru...next time maybe.. ] Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
