    I sold my WASR a while ago cause the thing nearly injured me, and now i ordered this, they seem like they are top notch rifles. Im not assuming they are the best im pretty sure i heard they are one of the better ones. i just had a quick question about it, its coming with one 5 round mag so of course thats not gonna do, i was gonna order the polymer magazines from tapco, do those mags work ok in the saiga conversions??


    thanks.

    I wouldn't use them in any AK for any serious purpose. They might be ok for range work but if you want standard performance go with real military surplus mags. Unissued mil spec mags are about as good as things get.

    And how did your WASR try to do you in?

    I fired it a few times and i noticed before i pulled the trigger again the bolt wasnt seated all the way back into the rest position. and i remember reading the story of the guy who also experienced it and he pulled the trigger and the thing blew up in his face. i know that sounds extreme but i can only assume the worst.

    You made the right choice with the SLG20 but I gotta wonder and hope that you made the purchaser of the WASR aware of the potential problem with the bolt???:shocked:

    I'd go with waffle mags or any steel mags you can get instead of the tapco mags. I've never used tapco mags but have heard nothing good about them.

    AIM has some great deals on 20 and 30 round AK mags
