    Sweet, that's what I thought!! I like the handguard that came on this rifle so I was hoping I wouldn't have to switch it with a US made to be compliant. Looks like I'm all set!!

    For the conversion, do you have to do anything to the magwell to accommodate the magazines?

    No, all u have to do is EITHER:

    -modify the catch tabs on the mags themselves like I did

    OR

    -modify the mag catch itself


    I did nothing to the magwell or receiver itself. The rounds feed perfectly.

    I'm considering doing the conversion to the 5.45 saiga in the future(if there is a group buy, even better ) and someone was trying to tell me the magwell needed to be widened to accept the mags

    I don't believe so, unless the 5.45 is different. But I don't see why it would be??

    I have used Russian plum mags in my S 5.45 with no mods to the mag well.

    Yeah I believe my 5.45 mags are Bulgarian and only required the typical mag catch level filing
