I've got a Saiga 7.62x39 that I'm thinking about converting. I'd like to make it into a conventional looking AK with wood furniture. I've been looking at conversion kits from a couple sites. Most of the kits include the pistol grip, buttstock & trigger, but I haven't seen one to change the hand guards. Anyone have a parts list for a Saiga to traditional AK conversion?

I had watched this video to get an idea how to do the frontend conversion and I think he lists the parts needed:

I've shopped Carolina Shooters Supply. Thanks for the vid. After seeing what it takes to instal the bolt on hand guard retainer I've decided to sell me Saiga for an AR. I'm pretty handy and I'm sure I could easily do the conversion, but there's just something about have to Dremel a grove in the barrel that turns me off.

Check out the Saiga12 forum. They have all the info you need. To do the "front end" conversion all you need is a AK hand guard retainer (Brownells), AK gas tube and AK hand guards. Or do what I did and get a Tapco Galil style hand guard

Here is a link to a thread I started earlier this year. I did a conversion of a saiga and had a great time doing it. I highly recommend it!

Looks like the standard sight. Check out the Bolton Gas block to lighten the front end and also comes with the AK sight

Its a Burris Fast Fire II on a MI mini dot mount. I love this sight. Primary Arms has them on sale. Burris also just came out with a FF III.
