Default My Saiga build

I'll keep this updated as it goes, but right now I've got a Saiga 12 that I've completely torn apart.

I've got a new trigger spring coming in, as well as the conversion kit to move the firing group forward and place a pistol grip, and new butt stock on. I also have a low brass reliability kit en route. All of this is ordered from Carolina Shooters Supply.

Will keep you guys updates with pics and steps...

The new stock is 3.5 inches shorter than the original, taking me down to 37.5 LOA.


Camo pattern I'm working on....

It's Atacs camo, I'm going to try and duplicate it with some spray paint and sponges... That should be a separate thread, but maybe I'll attach the write-up on this thread... Who knows.

First attempt at atacs.

I think I've got the colors right, but I didn't let coats dry between colors, hence the smudges.

I get a warm fuzzy feeling holding on to a saw grip.

I've heard good things about saiga... That's all I
know about their rifles.
