Always try to get some work done on my Saiga's over winter breaks. Grabbed a 5.45 earlier in the year (for $299) and slowly picked up parts here and there. Still need to drill and pin the FSB after test run. Have a nice Russian sling for it too. Total was under $750 (cheaper than the SR1911).
Pleased with the Plum. It looks different than the 5.45 I did last winter.

how does the railed gas tube work for you? I thought about that but (mine at least) has a little play in it and gets pretty hot. wasn't sure if it would be a good platform for a RDS for those 2 reasons. can't beat it for co-witness though. I was able to finally get almost lower third CW with a side rail mount but it heard you can pretty close to zero with a railed gas tube. a lot less bulky up front as well.
love the plum.
Have less than 1K through the black one. Half with a different hand guard and half time with red dot off.
I do like the Ultimak/Primary Arms micro combo. Haven't noticed any issue with heat. It works well for how I use it.
Thanks for the plum compliments.
