Default Best place to buy Saiga conversion kit

I am going to convert my 7.62X39 Saiga and am looking for the best kit for the money out there. I was looking at Carolina Shooters supply but was wondering if there is a better deal. This is the kit I was looking at

I bought my stuff there but pieced together the parts. See if you can do that, then compare to what AK builder has.

I know others will say different. But, I put on the Tapco. I am pleased with it. I did it myself. It's an easier kit.

dinazg....

they were great to deal with on my featureless build...bullet guide/trigger guard/grip nut etc...

bought the tapco stock from midway...along with the fcg parts and the pin retainer just to save shipping etc...

monsterman from 10%....

would go with a solar tactical on the next one and epoxy it to the standard "grip" for stability...

would esp. suggest conversion for trigger pull improvement esp.... and featureless allows quick mag changes even with the 10 rd mags and no BB to deal with ...

if your going the folder route however.. then bb and be happy

I think you can use the OC Armory Saiga regardless of what type of trigger guard conversion you go with. Plus there are here in CA.

Wish I would have heard about how long Dinzag takes to ship before I dropped a $100. It has been 17 days and haven't gotten anything except an order confirmation e-mail.

dinzag for the tapco modified trigger, trigger guard, and bullet guide. ultimak for railed gastube, and a handguard retainer from gunbroker for modifying to be used with wood handguard, kvar for a closeout priced grip screw, hogue grip from powers, and wood furniture from ironwood.

Dinzag is way too expensive. I would not buy anything from him but a bullet guide kit. Go with ak-builder parts or k-var parts. You can do a full conversion for less than it would cost to buy all of the dinzag stuff if you look around on forums for parts for sale.

Css is the best, just did one with them. Greg answers anything you need to know and ships to your house in 3 days. Also you can get a 5% discount by being a saiga-12 forum member. I believe the coupon code you enter is "CSS"... But check that forum to be sure.

FWIW.....

dinzag shipped within a week to me....

the trigger guard, bullet guide and grip nut were priceless.....

I got the trigger parts on another midway order...

I try to always bundle things to lower shipping costs...
