I have seen reference to Saiga receivers as "dimpled" and "Y'd" - I know what the dimples are - but what does the term "Y'd" mean?
I've been keeping track of the serial numbers for the dimped and Y'd Saigas I have seen on the web. So far I've only seen the 2006 Saigas simpled and Y'd. I also have never seen a Y'd Saiga that is not dimpled. And to be complete, I have seen one dimpled Saiga that was Y'd WITH the third hole drilled but filled with a rivet. This was an anomoly that probably wasn't even legal but somehow made it through the importer (RAA).7.62M43 said:Exothermia- I guess what I am wondering is if there are three variations - 1: no dimples, no "Y" stamp
2: dimples but no "Y" stamp
3: dimples with "Y" stamp
I have the second version - and am curious if they all have the selector markings in both Russian and English?
For sure, my family has lived in Des Moines for 150 years and I don't have any plans to leave. The only thing I don't particularly like about Iowa is the stupid liberal Governor and Congress (smoking ban anyone?) and the fact that we can't have SBRs or any other NFA stuff. There are a lot worse places to live.7.62M43 said:My wife grew up on the South side of DSM - I am a transplant from CA. I just couldn't take being told what I could not do with guns I purchased legaly - talk about humiliating - being photographed, fingerprinted, registered with the CA Dept. of Justice - then given a list of "rules" I was suposed to follow - what you can not do with your ak's! Basicaly got to the point where I was afraid to take them out of the house for fear of some illinformed LEO prick out to make a point. Talk about a complete 180 degree turnaround - here in the land of easily obtained carry permits and law enforcement that is understanding of gun laws. Don't be fooled when you graduate - Iowa is not the boring place younger people seem to think it is! People thought I was crazy to move here, but my friends back in CA are seeing my point now.
