View Full Version : 7.62x39 kushnapup build
06-04-2012, 1:37 PM
so i got a 20" barrel saiga and wanted to put it in the kushnapup stock with the ultimak rail and a radlock . I found out the stock 7.62 fits like a glove in the stock but you cant use the factory sights anymore, as they are too low. so u need to do something, and i dont trust the sight leaf rails. here are some build pics, its not entirely finished

This looks awesome, I just have a couple of questions. Does this require you to remove the rear tang? It looked like you had to do some plastic removal to get a fit, was that the case? What is the new overall length? Finally, how easy are magazine changes with the lock in place?

Looks nice, but im not so sure on your optics setup

^^^Ya me too, was wondering if its kinda high? Looks good BTW.

What is the overall length of the entire setup once assembled? From the info on the Kushnapup site I calculated it would be about 29.5" with a 20" 7.62 Saiga. Is that what you found or is it longer than expected, perhaps because of the buttpad?

Looks to me like you need to reconsider both the optic mount and the iron sights. The idea is basically sound, though the trigger quality is going to drop given the form of action bar and pivot they are using in there to actuate the trigger.

Its just over 30", its 30 1/4 oal. The optic is just temp until I get the right riser, but its actually the perfect height for me. I want to permanently attach a fake can on the front to give a little length and a little style, plus a more comfy buttpad. 10rnd mags fit fine, so do 10/20 mags, 10/30 mags dont fit without more mods. U dont have to cut the tangs off, u can bend the bottom one in and modify the buttpad to accept the top one

Thanks for the info. Do you know which model of Saiga you wound up using? Atlantic has the IZ235 but it's a little pricey for this purpose and the wood is a bit too nice to waste.
