Only 4 parts have to be replaced

Had a local FFL tell me ten parts. I just like to work on things myself and was just trying to get an idea of what parts are easier.

Some "parts" have multiple parts in them, leading what looks to be 4 parts legally be 10 parts. This is a complicated issue. Conversion is not something that is as easy as some of you are suggesting it is. It ain't rocket science, but its not something to mess with unless you do your homework and not listen to the legal advice of a couple of people on a forum. There are threads on FTF about this topic exclusively.

I replaced my trigger control group and forend. A total of four parts... You can't break a trigger,hammer,and disconnect even further down. I'm almost positive it's only 4 parts for a saiga conversion,and that your LGS was incorrect. I researched it extensively and it was very simple, two hours and 100 dollars in parts. Check at saiga.12.com for guidance and answers on converting

Trigger, hammer and sear count as one part EACH. If you replaced the entire unit with US made parts you picked up 3 US parts.

To be bit more clear on 922r. You may have up to 10 imported parts on a firearm that has two or more of the ban era features. You do not need to replace 10, only enough to achieve the total of 10 imported parts

Heck its the "sporting" stock that makes me want one.

Do you have to buy Saiga mags, or will AK mags work?

Is $399 + tax a reasonable price for a new "sporting" Saiga 7.62x39?
