I was hearing that some of the new Saigas may have arsenal marks on the barrel trunnion. Has anyone seen one?nalioth said:As we read this thread, containers are arriving at distributors with Saiga rifles and Saiga shotguns.thirtycal said:I think these things are drying up.
Word from one of them is that they were delayed in customs.
They are not "drying up" (except maybe the dimpled / dimpled w/Y models).
Ah ok that makes more sense. I could definitely understand how the small section of welded rail would be possible to burn thru... So they would just grind the external area of the receiver to fix it.Enoch said:jithaca is correct. The trip lever slot is welded closed. They did a sloppy job doing it.
Hmm, this is interesting. So you have a dimpled with no welding on the rail, yet you still have the grind marks.wgallc said:I have an 06 dimpled, no welding to the RH rail(was factory semi), outside is ground as shown. I believe it was done to remove the cyrillic safe & fire symbols(П & О), which are still visible.
Dang that is bizarre. Your rail is untouched, yet you pretty clearly have something going on there in the same region that I've seen all of the other 'scuff marks'.wgallc said:I've refinished the receiver, I didn't want the grind marks to show.
I'll show what I have, though... just a minute...
