Anyone done it Saiga style? Moved the trigger back for easier manipulation for your pistol-gripless wonder

Reverse engineer this http://www.cross-conn.com/Saiga_Conversion/index.htm ?

Or perhaps your own method?

How did it turn out and how tough was it? What other parts did you need and where did you get?

Pics of course

I did it if I get to it I will post some pics it isn't complete yet because I haven't fabricated a triggergaurd but it functions.

I had to cut a slot behind the pgrip hole to have enough travel for the trigger. I used choate handgaurds,usa reciever, usa disconnect, usa hammer, usa piston and a saiga 308 trigger and buttstock. I think I need 5 usa parts with the slant break but if I take it off I only would need four since there is no pgrip.

Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I couldn't find anything closer to my question without starting my own.

Can someone tell me how hard it would be to build up my NoDakSpud receivers as CA-compliant Saiga-style rifles? I have one standard AK-style and one RPK-style but no de-mill kits to build from yet.

I'd like to use US-made Saiga FCGs with (US-made if possible) Saiga sporter stocks so that I can use the pre-ban mags and drums I've got laying around collecting dust.

You have to drill four more holes in the receiver and get the trigger linkage parts. Dinzag arms sells them.
