I thought i read that Thermold AK mags will work in a Saiga without modification? Is this true? Reason I ask, is becus i have some rusty broken preban AK mags that need repair, so i figured if i buy some Thermal rebuild kits, i could use them in my Saiga, and of course if they are american made, that will also take care of my 922compliant parts?

I figure Thermold mags= 3 922compliant parts
1 Saiga Tapco handguard= 1 922 compliant parts.
Total compliant parts 4= Just what is needed for Saiga correct?

They will, but not without modification. But only to the mag catch latch. Trim until the mag locks into place. The lip on the front of the Thermold mags are thicker and higher then any other AK 47 magazine. That lip acts as the bullet guide.
