Can someone give me a clear picture of the internals for a Saiga. I need to see what the FCG looks like on the version with the transfer bar and relocated trigger. Thanks in advance.

How all the parts go in relation to each other:

Thanks for the pics DV8. I have another part that I've been trying to figure out where it belongs. It is the bottom piece. Any idea?

That looks like the bolt stop do-hickey. On mine it sits off to the right side of the trigger and protrudes thru the bottom of the lower receiver in that same region. Notice there's a small spring that comes up over near the back of the arm to bias it to a downward position.

Regards,

James R.

PS - Be prepared for the $h!ttiest trigger pull you've ever experienced ;-)

Thanks for the pic James, thats the piece. It looks like I have another hole to cut on the bottom of the receiver. Could you post a pic of the bottom side where the trigger guard is. Could you also show me a pic of the internals from an birds eye angle. My parts are slightly different than DV8's, specifically the trigger mechanism. I'm hoping that yours is similar to mine since you have the bolt stop lever also. Thanks in advance.

Which caliber FCG do you have, 308? My pics are from a 7.62x39...

It was supposed to be the 7.62 X39, but I'm not sure if I got the right thing. It does have the transfer bar, but it also has the slide/bolt stop lever that I cant see in your pic and can see in James R's. My trigger mechanism (if I'm calling it the right thing, the piece that looks like some kind of disconector/connector) is different than yours. It looks like yours has an extra piece that mine doesn't. See my pic above and compare it to yours. Any idea what I got?

Yeah, thats a 7.62 one. Dont worry about the extra piece in my pic, supposedly its a hammer retarder of some sort. I think older saigas came with it and eventually they took it out. It doesnt affect how the FCG works.
