    Dang I love my California "Featureless" 7.62x36 Saiga

    Went up into the National Forest and found a nice little clearing against a hill where I could set up a 25 yard range. I finally got a chance to dial in the sights at 25, so my other setting would be good. With the rear on the 200 setting, I have it dialed in POA/POI at 25 yards. Should be good to 250 yards now. Also sighted in my Tasco red Dot, though the battery died before just as I was finishing. The modified Tapco G2 really cleaned up and lightened the trigger pull, even with the factory linkage intact.



    At 75 yards, shooting off hand, from a standing position, the red dot was dead nuts on, and I hit everything I aimed at. At 50 yards without the sight, I did almost as well as the red dot at75 yards.

    It functioned flawlessly from Saiga factory 10 rounders, and 30s - both steel Com-Blocks and also Tapco smooth sides (that I used the bodies to "repair dented com-blocks The innards are Com-Block). The Tactical Tr-Delta comp worked great. In fact, between it, the recoil buffer, and the vented Chinese Type 56 gas tube, the rapid shooting was more controllable than the un-comped barrel without a buffer, and with standard Saiga gas tube. The combination really took the snap out of it. More of a "push," than anything.

    Also, the Tapco Saiga Intrafuse handguard with the aluminum heatshield I made inside of it worked great. Several hundred rounds, and the handguard was only slightly warm. Using the Chinese gas tube with the polymer upper handguard on it kept me from getting finger sizzle that you get with the Saiga Gas tube.

    This is definitely my "go to" property defense weapon now.

    I find myself wishing that I'd kept my saiga. It was a fine ak.....I had a moment of weakness when the asking price was paid...No backing out at that point, but I honestly expected him to back away...Oh well.

    You can possess and use 30 round magazines (any magazine over 10 rounds) IF you possessed them IN California prior to 1-1-2000. At 62, I have had most of my high caps since the 70s and 80s. Some in the 90s. The rub is that you may not use them in a weapon that has: a pistol grip, a flash hider, a collapsible stock, flare or grenade launcher, or forward pistol grip. A weapon with ANY of those features must have a fixed magazine of 10 rounds or less. Fixed means a tool (bullet) needed to remove it. So those weapons with evil features have bullet buttons.

    If you have a weapon WITHOUT those features, (M1 Carbine, Mini-14/30, Kel-Tec SU16, M1A, factory Saiga) you may use those "legally possessed by you in California prior to 1-1-2000 high capacity magazines" in them. We can also cover the pistol grip, pin the collapsible stock, and put a brake on a AR15 to make it featureless. Muzzle brakes are not considered flash hiders.

    We would all be SO much safer and so forth if we could only heed the infinite wisdom of the State of California [choke-gag-choke]

    But nice that libs don't really have a clue and there are work-arounds available.
    Time for the book "The Decline and Fall of the United States of America?"
