Default Ask me anything you need to know about saiga Rifles

I have found a lot of people want to get into a AK but do not know what to go with. I will try and convince you to buy a Saiga. I own 2 and they are my favorite rifle I want to get one in every caliber eventually
Conversion kits that are the easiest to work with- CONVERSION KITS:SAIGA 223, 5.45, 7.62, 308
you tube- how to videos from eddiekern and carolinashooters
everything else-http://www.cross-conn.com/Saiga_Conversion/index.htm
any questions dose not hurt to ask=)

Other FAQ
5.45x39 can take ak-74 mags out of the box but it is illegal to use the 74 mags unless you 922r compliance the gun meaning your rifle needs a certian number of u.s made parts.
7.62x39 can take ak-47 mags after having a bullet guided installed which is a really easy part to put in.
223- is the odd ball of the group there is no set surplus mag it can use but people have modded the gun and mags to fit galil, sar-3 and ak-74 mags with different fallowers
