Default How to tell the make of my AK.

I think I am in need of a new extractor and thought I would get a whole bolt head. I am not real familiar with AK 74s or 47s and I not sure if it is a "Saiga" or if it is Bulgarian or even Hungarian. Is there one clear way to tell? Any help would be appreciated. Oh, the rifle is an AK 74. It uses the 5.45 round.
