I just ordered my parts too. I'm gonna try doing it myself. You should come to the next calguns shoot at on target. The people that go there could help you out

Do it yourself and get a buddy to help. Know your gun inside and out. It's really not that hard. There's a lot less pieces than an AR. I converted one of my Saiga's with a help from a friend. Once you're done, you'll realize it's pretty simple, but if you don't have the right tools, then I could see why you would want to get it done by someone else.

I have done a couple myself but it's not something we really have the time or inclination to do for customers. There are some good videos on carolinashooterssupply website that walk you through the process. It's really not that hard, just time consuming.

I would love to do it myself..... Watched all the videos on Carolina shooters supply that's where I got the parts..... I just don't have any tools or know anyone to help......that's why I'm here...... I've been to the meets at on target super fun but I won't be able to make it to the nxt one kinda outta the country till the 17th on feb.....

Hope it's as easy as building an AR.... All I need is the correct drill bit and dremel to cut the tang correct..... I also seen on the video that u need to repaint the finish but I'm not too sure

A drill or a Dremel with good tungsten carbide bits will make quick work of the job.

Do yourself a favor and get a DIY trigger guard to avoid having to cut a square PG nut hole. The only other hard part is putting back together the BHO.
