    His and Her Saigas

    Just got done doing a trigger/pistol grip conversion 922 compliant etc to my Saiga and recently picked one up for my better half and thought I would share a pic.

    They are quality guns for the money, seems like you canít have just one.

    Did the one on the bottom come in that stock, or is it after market? If after market where did you get it. Not sure if I want to move the trigger forward on it, or leave it where it is now. I got mine in 7.62X39. Thought about the 5.56, but decided to stick with the caliber the gun was designed for. Although .308 might be nice to have too.

    Look here. It's not the stock to get if you convert though. I think it would look funny with an extra pistol grip! Note that some of the conversion stocks require you to file off the upper tang that the normal stock screws to, and then you need to add a welded plate or the Ace internal block (I use the Ace block)

    archer51,

    The stock on the bottom is the Russian one that came on it. It is very tough and seems ergonomically correct. I like how it has a pistol grip feature and will probably not change it, especially since my better half likes the way it is and she don’t mind the factory trigger pull.

    I originally had a collapsible tapco with the pistol grip on the top one. It was fine but the pistol grip seemed weak, it just screwed into the bottom of the stock and never felt tight enough to take the abuse I can give it.

    The trigger conversion wasn’t hard at all. But if you don’t want to wrench on your rifle I can understand. I didn’t mess with mine for about a year (until I got the other one). I really like the Saigas. They are quality rifles at a great cost, even if you put a little more work in to return the to original AK format.

    Have you checked out saigastock.com? They have the Russian stocks like the one on mine for sale as well as the tapco and extra mags. I purchased my conversion parts from Dinzag. All top quality items that fit right the first time.

    Good luck and enjoy your rifle. Fire it a lot, 7.62x39 is cheap.

    You need to modify the receiver with this.

    Or use this which will lengthen the gun overall.
