    I think you will find you will need to do the conversion to the rifle or you want see any benefits from the G2 trigger. It's the linkage on the unconverted Saiga triggers that make3 them feel not as good as the G2's.

    From the looks of the rifle in the picture it has had the conversion.
    Are you sure it doesn't already have the G2 trigger?

    Nope if you look at the picture the trigger group is to far back to of had the conversion. It is a stock and pistol grip set up that you don't have to convert to use.

    Glockfan, you haven't converted your rifle so you have a stock Saiga trigger. You will have to do the conversion to use the G2 trigger.

    Check over here on the forum of saiga-12.com for lots of info on Saiga rifles.

    As they explain on Saiga-12.com its where you move the trigger and trigger guard forward just like a normal AK, and add a pistol grip. Unlike the stock you added with a pistol grip all ready on it.

    Maybe your rifle had a bad trigger, but my Saiga .308's factory trigger is not bad at all.

    I feel no need at all to modify the trigger on mine.

    It's all the additional linkage that makes the trigger not as good as it could be.

    My other half's stock 7.62 trigger is fine....my converted one is better.

    You can run the Saiga's either way. Just don't get all caught up in the conversion being difficult, time consuming, or out of my skill level blah blah. If you ever took apart an AK to give it a good once over you can do the FCG move.

    It's just a matter of choice, and it's your firearm.

    Good luck.
