    Nevermind the above, it applies to Saiga shotguns and now I realize we're talking about rifles!

    I have figure out my parts. Read up and watched a few videos.

    The only thing I can find is how to mag it accept AK mags. I read to trim the magazine catch. Still leaves me in the dark

    Can anyone explain it anymore than that? Perhaps maybe some pictures or a video?

    It's really easy to do. Basically, the tab on a Saiga magazine is smaller than one on an AK magazine. So, all you have to do, is grind/file some metal off the top of the mag release lever.

    Here's a good video


    Here's a thread, and a few pictures, of when I did my conversion.
