A little research beforehand would help you know.
How for are you going with this thing? Back end or the barrel too?

They sell another thing that will allow you to use wood furniture on the Saiga but I can't seem to find it right now.

looking at some of the wood pistol grips they have a lip that sticks out where it meets the reciever how do you make this sit flush against the receiver

Buy an ak74 parts kit and use the parts from that. Everything will be there except the furniture. The triggerguard, gas tube, rear sight, lower H.G. retainer, gas block, F.S.B., muzzle brake, and bullet guide.
