Default Saiga folder conversion value

So I got this Saiga, I was wondering the value of it now vs how it would be if I converted it over to Russian AK-103 spec. Here's an Album of it with bigger pictures. As far as I can tell all the hard work has been done with welding the side holes and adding the folding trunnion. I was wondering if the 5.5mm trunnion will just drop in after I take out this one or would I need to re-cut the receiver. I know the stock angles are slightly different, Would the rivets line up? I don't actually know. I do plan on getting Russian AK74/100 parts for the front end. Here's the rest of the album. https://imgur.com/a/YniLRhf

Default OUCH!

Aaaaand they didn't weld the holes on the receiver. It's a double hook receiver and a vented gas tube.

Plus I don't like that table with 2 tone molding and brown is sooooo yesterday.

Take that

the SGL21 is the way to go, it has all the right parts and less welds / incorrect holes

Correct way to do an AK-103 spec .


1. AK-100/74m fsb
2. 74m / 100 gas block
3. 74m HGR
4. 1000m Leaf (AK74m)
5. Long Collar AK74m style brake (kvar makes 22 /30 cal versions)
6. Russian AK74m Trigger guard with with dimpled catch and round rear tang
7. Correct shelf rivet for the FCG.
8. Caliber correct russian bullet guide plus rivet
9. Russian AK74m selector

What does the AK74M selector look like?
