    It's a Romanian version and I have a question. What are the two gadgets on the left side of the receiver??

    It's a Russian-style scope mount rail. My WASR has one also. I have a Mag-Pro scope mount on mine used to mount a red dot sight. The mount slides right on and tightens with three small screws. You can get different styles of mounts to go the rail. I'd post pics, but I lack a camera :( Congrats on the WASR. I love mine :D

    You have to love AKs.

    Heres a technique for you when re assembling. When you get to the top cover, rest it on top of the receiver, stick the front into its groove and hold there with thumb then strike the rear with the heel of the hand, kinda down and forward. It will just pop on. Do it a few times and you will get the idea. Quick, slick and looks really cool.

    If you have any slick techniques for replacing the Saiga receiver cover I'd sure like to know them. That sure is a pain in the butt.

    I am not familiar with the Saiga, but thought they were the same as the AK series.

    I have used AK47s, AKMs and 74s, and it works with them (It also works with the Galil and R4). Just get the front of the cover located, and the back bottom edge is resting on the peg you push in to lift the cover. A sharp smack to the top back edge with the heel of the hand will pop it on. You need to do it a couple of times to get it. Let me know if you can do it with a Saiga.

    There are a couple of other tricks and hints with the AK series, but not for an open forum!!!

    UK spec Saiga's are different to USA spec Saiga's....I think:rolleyes:. The UK spec is a straight pull (single shot :() version of the AK- 100 series. This is one of mine (top). I think the USA version is more of a hunting rifle (lower), but could be wrong as usual :D

    Thats the one Charlie, a sharp smack, but you do have to practice a little to get it first time.

    How easy is your straight pull to pull? Also, how is extraction? Some straight pulls loose cases inside, requiring a full clearance drill.

    Both my AK's work fine, the trick is to be firm, pulling the cocking handle back and releasing it to go forward, not pushing the handle back. The trick is to remember, the AK was designed to be treated roughly, it's a kinky beast and likes a firm hand.:)

    My AK/Saigas, first one .223 , second 7.62x39 (that's not me talking)
