Default Can you make the saiga ak look more like a traditional ak?

How do you get the saiga ak to look more like a traditional ak? Im not talking about the conversion im talking about the upper gas tube. The gas tube is covered. It does not look like an classic ak, how would you fix this, or expose the gas tube so it looks a little more traditional? Any pics would be nice!

You could replace the gas tube with a standard one. The tube on the Saiga lacks the hardware to hold the wood of a standard upper handguard. If you mounted a rail system it might not matter because some of them clamp in place.

Yes you can just get on you tube and search for Saiga conversion it will show you a lot of different ways to change your Saiga to make it look like a real AK.
