Default Saiga 12 Conversion

Did my first conversion on the Saiga 12, pretty easy overall. I'm definitely no gunsmith but as long as you follow the directions and have a fair knowledge of how guns work it's pretty simple.

I bought everything from Carolina Shooters Supply, didn't know at first I needed the modified bolt hold open so the project was delayed a few days while I waited for it to arrive. I didn't want to cut the tangs off so I went with the AK stock.

The bullet button that came with the shotgun wouldn't work with a conversion. I think it's made by Prince 50. I picked up one from Raddlock and Solar Tactical. Decided to go with the one from Raddlock. Esthetically it looked better.

Now it's time to see how it shoots, I'll be heading to the range this week to try it out.

I have another Saiga 12 on order and as soon as it arrives I'll be doing the Kushnapup conversion to it.

The pictures of the bullet button go:
1. Raddlock
2. The one that came stock with the shotgun, possibly from Prince 50
3. Solar Tactical
