The Saiga is a great AK made in a Russian AK factory. The converted Saiga listed above is a great buy though I'm not sure of the quality of the conversion. Better known shops can charge up to $700 for the conversion alone.

The Romy kit w/ the FSP/gas block combo is next on my list if I don't decide to go w/ the Saiga which will be converted to the Fuller front end and chopped.

AKs have a large aftermarket.

My only attempt to change furniture was the quad rail that did not fit. My Century Arms came with black synthetic fore end and black under-fold stock.

Damn right ChevyMan! And if folks had some real Ballz, They'd bust out with a good kit (Hungarian and Polish can be had for less than $200), get a NoDak3 and start getting creative.

AR projects pale in comparison to the satisfaction of building your own AK from parts. You'll gain experience in everything from Headspacing and profiling your own virgin barrel, customizing your stock and finish, riveting your trunnions in place, pulling/fitting all of the barrel components onto location and building/fabricating all of the jigs and tools necessary to complete your first build. . . Once that first one is done, then you should have what it takes to be a full-fledged AK-47 (and variant) armorer as long as you took note of everything you did and lessons/corrections you made along the way.

After that first one, then the next gun you can spit out in a weekend or 4-5 nights of afterwork type projects. your tool investment pays for itself ~half way on #1 and after #2 you are already ahead!Its a world of pleasure!!!

I spent quite a bit of time putting together a thread here on the build process. . . I got 1 response!!! That basically told me that most of the folks that were/are here at that time, are "following the leader" very sheepishly and probably don't have what it takes to complete. But some of y'all might! I certainly learned form some great folks around other forums, but I'd be more than happy to answer ANY questions.

I would build one but I don't have all the tool/ afford the tools its just cheaper for me to do saiga's when kits now a days are 350 for a good kit
