I have ordered a Saiga 7.62 and should get it soon.

I will be doing the conversion on it.

This thread is about the Midwest Industries AK Rail. There is a version made for the Saiga, however, I intend on replacing the original gas tube with a U.S. made AK vented gas tube.

With that being said, should I order the AK varient of this rail?

2nd question, where can I order the small "shroud" piece that goes around the barrel at the end of the handguard?

there is another forum member that sells the lower handguard retainer for like 13 bucks. but you do have to modify that so you can slip it on without removing the FSB and gas block. also check to see if your saiga has the factory notches on the barral, you must remove the front grip to see them

Here are some pics of the rail on my ak47, I installed a Vortex Strikefire on it. Good scope for the money.

I have the Saiga specific UTG rail. Now I havn't been impressed with much in the UTG catalog but this thing has balls. It's tough, it holds everything tight, and it bolts right on. I have a light, a sling mount and a grip pod attached and it's solid.

Modified retainer from Saiga-12 (http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?showtopic=43268). If you search around, you'll find more pics.
