Default Saiga 223 to 5.45 conversion?

Newbie here.

I have an unconverted Saiga 223.

What would take this to convert to 5.45?
I have a SBR 106CR so probably go 5.45 route.

Barrel is obvious and what others? I will send to someone I can trust with it without naming the smith.

Thanks!

You can start with an AK-74 bolt and barrel.

It would require a 23mm 5.45 barrel(vepr, rpk74 or custom), a bolt, and a 5.45 bullet guide

An SLR-106 is 5.56, not 5.45, I don't get it.

Just sell and use the funds for a 5.45 Saiga. A lot easier and less of a headache. Not to mention it'll probably be cheaper just to buy a 5.45 Saiga once you factor in the parts and labor.

I'm confused by what you're doing, you just said you have three 5.45x39 rifles in this thread already

https://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=415918

One is a SLR104FR that's "Unfired" so I'm confused why you'd sell the SLR104FR
.....only to spend gobs of cash to convert an IZ-114 to an IZ-240

Saiga 223 can convert to 7.62 with 22mm russian barrel and saiga bolt.
