Gonna convert it but still havent decided on which furniture I'm gonna run or what all I'm going to do to it. I'm very excited!

I love my Saiga! I first had some Tapco furniture which was fine (many people h8 Tapco but I had no probes with it).
I however ended up with a Warsaw length stock from ultimak cause it fits my short arms.
Trigger conversion was fairly straightforward and well worth it.
Gotta give a thumbs up to ultimak for super quick service and shipping!
Have fun!!

Perhaps give some thought to leaving it in its virgin, featureless configuration. Although less 'tacticool' looking, it is far more useful as a defensive firearm in its factory form than when converted to a hopelessly neutered, mag-locked 'Cal-legal' AK config.

tempting but I don't like this part:

"They do not use standard AK mags but will work with the Sure fire 30 round hi cap magazines"

Hoping its a square trunion for ease of bullet guide installation. We'll see what happens...

Or maybe I'll leave the bullet guide alone since I just read that would trigger 922(r) and force me to change other parts to be in compliance. I just want to shoot it!

I feel your pain. I ordered 7.62x39 ammo on a whim and can't decide what I should buy to shoot it out of. Then again my first obstacle of being able to go featureless is "finding" my old 30 rounders.

haha, I hear ya. I've been debating for a while to get one but when the price went from $319 to $349 on monday I said screw it, I'm buying one! They are only going to get more expensive and harder to find since everyone is buying guns for the "end of the world" party in december. I almost bought a case of 7.62x39 ammo a few weeks ago to force myself to buy a gun haha!

Awesome! congrats, your gonna love it. I have 2, 1 is converted the other 1 is stock. Converted is way more ergonomic. Make sure to get a warsaw length stock. I got a Timbersmith stock which is between the nato length and warsaw length, I wish it was shorter and when i convert my 2nd Saiga I'm getting the shorter stock for sure. It's easy to put a bullet guide in a round trunion, dont sweat it. Keep your fingers crossed that it has the pistol grip nut hole, that would be a real pita if it didnt have it

Round or square doesn't make a difference. They both install the same. Just get the right part.

Or maybe I'll leave the bullet guide alone since I just read that would trigger 922(r) and force me to change other parts to be in compliance. I just want to shoot it!

Bullet guide has nothing to do with it. Once you have it in a non-sporting configuration (converted) thats when 922r applies. Anyway guess what? Once you convert with all the necessary U.S. made parts, you're now 922r compliant.

Did you find a good deal?
