why not just buy one and de mill it? chop the receiver up and you have a brand new parts kit. if you destroy the original receiver carefully you may be able to re weld the scraps into a new receiver

Making a Saiga 12 from AK parts is impossible because the front trunnion and barrel are only available in complete Saiga 12s.

Chopping a Saiga 12 would be cheaper than somehow sourcing a U.S. made front trunnion and barrel.

The only practical reason for a Saiga 12 parts kit is to make a pistol AOW or a non-shotgun cruiser (so it can legally be converted to an AOW at a later date).

I saw a Saiga 12 parts kit on gunbroker once.Kinda made me wonder where the law is at on that one,as the serial # is on the front trunion,not the flat.Seems like it would still have to be DROS?

Nope, most AK parts kits have serial numbers on the front trunnion (and bolt carrier, bolt, etc.) and they are perfectly legal to sell as parts.

ah, so it sounds like more trouble than its worth.. well thanks for the info.

I just like the idea of building your own firearms, seems like a good way to understand how they work, aside from that self satisfaction that you gave it your personal touch...

i'll probably pick up a browning auto 5 instead

anyways thanks again

I seen one on gunbroker too, it went for what a saiga 12 would run. Before you think you could bust one out like any other kit build you need to take into account that there are no receivers avaliable. I've been working on one but i'll still need to chop up a Saiga to get the rails out to copy. If you got more skills then me have at it. For me it's a little tough to justify chopping up a gun I could sell when times are tough for my family like now.

I realize that most front trunions have a serial # on them,as well as other parts of the gun.The difference is Saigas dont have a serial # on the receiver(sheet metal)Therefore the one on the trunion is the REAL serial #.The one that matters.Its probably no big deal,but makes it a little less clear.Lets say someone stole the Saiga 12 and thought it was easier to sell as parts(no paperwork,and outwardly appears legal).They chop it up,you buy it,but the cops won't buy it....You are in possesion of a stolen gun.Someone is always the first to find out the hard way.
