    Went with this stock with the nut and bolt for the pistol grip...

    http://www.k-var.com/shop/product.php?productid=16207&cat=251&page=1

    Went with this trigger group...

    http://www.k-var.com/shop/product.php?productid=16409&cat=339&page=2

    And bought a bullet guide install kit from Dinzagarms...

    Also bought 2 Soviet bloc 40 round magazines from cheaperthandirt. Hope they work. :noes:

    http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/MAG026-36.html

    Total was just under 200$. I was going to go with the mags more off suggested but I like that these are actual Russian mags instead. :hs:

    Oh well, time for the waiting game. Hopefully my stuff comes in this week so that I can put it together this weekend.

    I'm sure they will work fine. I have lots of Hungarian mags and never had a problem with any of 'em.

    Got the mags in today!

    Loaded one of them up and holy shit are they heavy. Will not click into my Saiga but that will be fixed when my Stock set from K-Var comes in next week. :coold:

    Other than the latch not clicking in though the action of putting it in and taking out of the magwell is 100x smoother than the factory Saiga mag.

    My mags must be Hungarian too because they are always hungry. I keep feeding them, and feeding them, and feeding them :rofl:

    i was trying to get them to just send me the lid

    but they insist i send the entire item back and they'll send me one back with a lid :wtf:


    oh well, i'll still be getting it for 1/2 what i sold my old 1 for.

    it still looks badass though :bowdown: just gotta wait another week to enjoy it
