Default Alpha clone

I would like to build an alpha clone. I am in between using my Saiga 5.45 or buying an slr106 for this project.

Any pics of your build/clone or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

Did it with a Saiga 5.45 and had Troy at InRange do the conversion with all Russian parts other than the FCG (ALG), M4 tube adapter (CAA) and buttstock (CAA).

Yes but I had to file down the area at the hinge on the buffer tube so it would fold correctly. It won't lock though since there is no lip to grab onto with the latch. From what I have seen, the intent of the buffer tube adapters was never to really fold and stow, more or less just to add a M4 style stock to a folding hinge AK-100 rifle.

Waiting on the new PA Cyclops.

easiest way to do it is buy a 106cr and put the zenitco B30/B31/B33 on it. Chop the barrel on it and pin the cnc warrior 3.5in extended 4 piece flash hider. for the stock use a jmac customs mod1 or 2. some people sbr theirs but 1 inch off the muzzle device isn't worth it to me.
