I can haz comrade gun

I’m starting to feel firearm saturation… or am I?  Maybe in 10 days?  I doubt it.

    Cool — but why not get the .308 version? Or is the ’39 that much more compact?

    It’ll be more of a carbine than a battle rifle. If I want .308 WIN, I will seek out my M1A. I also think that the x39 will be easier on the wallet to practice and there is little concern with brass vs steel cased ammo with the Saiga.

    The 7.62×39 round is significantly shorter. They’re actually kinda “cute.”

    I have a 16in sporter. Tight little package. I think you’ll like it. I’ve been holding off on doing a write up on mine until I convert it and do a before and after.

    Conversion so you can add a pistol grip?

    yea- its tough in NY because we can’t use American made mags- so we have to play the parts game for compliance a bit differently. In addition to the normal parts change, we usually end up changing out base plates and mag followers as well, plus one additional item to make up for the loss of a mag body as a compliance part.

    I’m trying not to have to do the front sight assembly, as thats just an expensive adventure in frustration- so I’ve been sitting on it looking for parts deals. I want to convert 4 mags legally in case I want to resell in the future- and figure that will be a strong selling point.

    Also I’m trying to find a cheap US made stock that is significantly longer than the original ak pattern calls for. The LOP on AKs is just way too short for me.
