Saiga 7.62x39

Recommended Posts

I have the ace block, that came with the ace stock when i made my order for css. but the screws are to long to sit flush against the flat metal.it looks like it needs to be drilled and tapped for it to work

 

the ace block does not use side screws.. it uses the screw in the top.. and then the PG nut goes through it.. you drill in the side a little and then just use nylon plugs to fill the holes if you are not going to weld it.. I personally have used the ones from Dinzag..

not sure but I made the holes intentionally small and forced the plugs in.. 3+ years later they have not moved..

 

that is weird, who did you get the block from?

 

 

it is suppused to look like this:

 

here is mine:

 

there are multiple manufactures.. the ACE blocks do not have holes..

there are two types of blocks.. there is that one.. but then there are also the Ace blocks..

 

where is your block from?

the ace block works just as well.. but it just functions differently..

 

 

What’s the difference or what is the preferred block? You may remember about 2 months ago I did my 308 & 223 but I used the standard Tapco stocks on both. I liked the 223 so much I picked up another 223 about 3 weeks ago. I would like to do my second 223 a little different (once I have the funds) with the Ace stock as the OP here. I asked on my post (#48) about the blocks but I was probably unclear. Thanks in advance

the ace block with the no side holes is ideal if you are welding the holes and refinishing the gun..

 

if you are not doing that..

I have no preference both work well..

I see now, thanks. I will not know what I'm buying until I sit down and order the parts. who knows, may do the same as the previous configuration because it was fairly cheap and quick and easy to do, then again I really like the woody look as well. This should be my biggest problem making this decision, LOL

First test fire...FTF... First 2 shots were good, then i manually cycled every shot with the bolt,ejecting rounds with no primer strikes, though you could hear the hammer dropping. I'll have to do some investigating and research on this.

Can I ask where did you get the 15/20 round mags?

 

I just picked a 7.62 so this is next on my list. As far as your not firing issue I’ll defer to the experts as to the actual cause. What I do know when I did my 308 & 223 I had to grind a fair amount off the hammers. I did it in a way that kept the hammer on center instead of taking too much off either side causing the hammer to move laterally in one direction or the other. For the 308 that even required few swipes with the grinder on the vertical.

Its from a place called mountain armory . http://mtnarmory.com...e=index&cPath=2

 

If you call they have the 15/20's too

 

list EVERYTHING you did to the gun.. top to bottom..

 

also is the gun failing to fire or failing to eject? when you manually cycle the gun is it ejecting a live round or empty case?

Gun is falling to fire, but not leaving any primer strikes on the primer. manually cycling the bolt ejects a live round.

 

Following the Carolina shooters supply video's

  • drill out rivets
  • remove trigger group and replace with g2 trigger
  • install BHO (Bending the edge of the spring arm *Via CSS instructions*)
  • drill and tap bullet guide for correct trunion, file down mag release.
  • install buttstock.
  • etc.

I didn't touch any gas tubes. i will wipe parts, re-lube every part and try again Sunday or Monday. Possibly a mag issue, i need to try it with a different one monday too and hopefully its only that

to start the hammer spring leg is off of the trigger.. the left side is correct.. the right side is not.. (looking at the picture)

you are not alone.. this is a common first conversion issue..

 

put the spring leg back on the trigger.. give it a little bend if need be..

 

this may not be the problem.. but it is definitely wrong..

fix it..

then

report back your results..

 

and I will help you more..

A little bit of a necro post but oh well.

I am in the market for an ak platform. After reading several of the arguments on the non saigas vs saigas. I decided to go the saiga route. is there a shop in NJ that sells pre converted ak style saigas? I know many of you are going to say that its easy enough to convert it, but, I'd rather not. Just looking to pick one up with the leg work already done. Also if I was going to use the price request function on this forum, what would I type in as the description?

    • Thanks. Refresher: Requiring Firearm Safety Training: S-2169/A-5030 (Weinberg/Reynolds-Jackson) would modernize firearm ID cards, as well as require completion of a firearm safety course in order to receive a permit to purchase a gun or receive a firearm ID card. Connecticut, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Rhode Island, Maryland and the District of Columbia all have laws requiring individuals to undergo safety training prior to being able to purchase. [How would this apply to existing FID holders? Definition of acceptable training? Conspicuously absent. Potential impacts on passing on firearms to your heirs.] Mandating Safe Storage of Firearms: Owning a firearm for protection in the home can present a substantial obstacle to safe firearm storage, with individuals often opting to keep weapons loaded and easily accessible. Last legislative session, the Assembly passed A-3696/S-2240 (Downey/Gopal) requiring firearm owners to store the firearm in a securely locked box or container; in a location where a reasonable person would believe to be secure; or to secure the firearm with a trigger lock.  Raising Minimum Age to Purchase Long Guns to 21: Under current law, a person 18 years of age and older may obtain a firearms purchaser identification card and a handgun purchaser is required to be at least 21 years old. The bill (A-1141/S-3605, Freiman/Cryan) increases from 18 to 21 the age at which a person is eligible to receive a firearms purchaser identification card used to purchase shotguns and rifles but would still allow for those at least 18 to possess a long gun for purposes of hunting; military drills; competition; target practice; training; or under the supervision of a parent or guardian.   Promoting Microstamping Technology: Microstamping technology provides law enforcement with the tools to quickly link firearm cartridge casings found at the scene of a crime to a specific firearm, without having to recover the firearm itself.  The technology essentially creates a “license plate” on cartridge casings to identify the gun that was used to shoot the ammunition.  Last legislative session, S-112/A-1098 (Weinberg/Downey) would require within a year that firearm manufacturers incorporate this technology into new handguns sold in New Jersey. [This worked so well in CA... IOW, no more new pistols for sale.] Establishing Electronic Ammunition Sales Recordkeeping: The State Commission of Investigation (SCI) issued a report in 2016 finding that straw purchases of ammunition were unchecked because firearm IDs lacked photo identification.  The SCI also found that sales records were often hand-written into log books — a problem for law enforcement, which should be able to consult an electronic database when it investigates questionable ammunition purchases.  A-1292/S-1481 (Greenwald/Weinberg) would require manufacturers or dealers of handgun ammunition to keep a detailed electronic record of ammunition sales, and report ammunition sales to the State Police. [Any talk of banning internet sales?] Banning .50 Caliber Firearms: Military-style .50 caliber rifles are banned or restricted in several other states. California has a complete ban on .50-caliber rifles, Connecticut bans specific models and Maryland has some restrictions.  S-103/A-1280 (Gill/Greenwald) would revise the definition of "destructive device" under New Jersey law so that it includes weapons of .50 caliber or greater. [It's about time. These things are used in what... zero crimes in this state annually?] I wouldn't be surprised if remaining evil features, others, and internet sales, among other things, get added to the list.
    • I dropped my Trenton Times subscription after the January 7th headline. Bought a paper last week on Thanksgiving for my wife... $8 and completely useless! Won't be doing that again.
    • The Gov referenced these initiatives back in April:  https://nj.gov/governor/news/news/562021/20210415b.shtml        
    • Holy crap! $60??!!!!!!!  I didn’t know they were that expensive.    I have an extended A2 type comp (not EGW) in my parts box, makes a 14.5” carbine 16.25”.  If you need it, it’s yours for the cost of postage. It looks like the one on the left in this pic.
