    My Saiga Pistol Grip conversion finished!

    My saiga Pistol grip conversion done! I have a new Russian mistress, and she is a beauty. She also shoots sub 2 MOA with Barnaul ammo and iron sights!

    I got finally got it done, despite the right arm in a sling.

    Saiga .223 16" barrel:

    KVAR US trigger
    KVAR US Warsaw Stock
    KVAR US AK 47 pistol grip
    Tapco Saiga specific Galil US hand guard
    US M16A1 flash hider
    US Surefire and ProMag Saiga specific magazines (3 US parts each)

    Re-used Saiga hammer, Saiga disconnector and spring, Saiga trigger guard, Saiga hammer/trigger pin retention spring (only used one of the aluminum cross spacers screws? and plug back holes, and trimmed down bolt hold open device (WHAT A PAIN IN THE BUTT! Thank goodness for who ever came up with the dental floss idea!).

    Hardest part: Drilling the front trigger guard weld! Must be melted down German tank steel, as someone already suggested!

    It is soooooo sweeeeeeet! I still need to get a shepherd's crook pin retainer to loose the aluminum cross screw and Saiga factor pin retention spring.

    Looks Good! I've considered doing a Dragunov setup for my .308 Saiga, but that walnut is just so damn pretty...

    Good looking piece...I like mine so much more after converting it over to the dark side.

    Looks sweet! So much better than a stock Saiga!

    Nice job. You'll like it much better than the original configuration.
