      picked it up this morning, saiga .308 16"
      hmm, i am having trouble putting back the bolt into the bolt carrier and fitting it back in, can anyone provide a picture of proper fit?
      namely, should the bolt cam be fitted with it closer to the front of the rifle or the back of the rifle upon reassembly?

      The bolt will rotate around in the carrier...it should be slid forward (if this is like a normal AK) and just push the carrier down into the receiver and slide it forward. I'd check YouTube, there should be plenty of videos.

      Just a heads up, depending on the type and condition of the drum - those can go for as much as $250...you might have a little investment there.

      a friend of mine tonight helped me file down some edges and pulled out a little bit of the dust cover. izhmash makes it too tight straight from the factory and i was babying it (forgetting that it can take it) by not using enough force to force it in. it definitely takes some time getting used to, so need to break it down and put back together repeatedly tonight until i get the hang of it
      thanks elbows

      Yeah, it takes a bit to get used to it - the rifles Ive had are varying "tight" fits...but with a proper application of punching...it all works.

      took it to the range yesterday, sights were only slightly canted and had to readjust after shooting left and low. first time shooting a .308 after a lifelong experience with .223, did not expect that, felt like a 12 gauge. overall, i like, now it sits in storage for three months until i come back : (

      i have a feeling a lot of the canted sights happen either during shipping or handling. in either case fixing a canted sight is easy. all you need is a drift punch, mallet, and dental floss. it takes probably 5-10 minutes to fix and then you're good to go for the next hundred years or so.

      Nevermas, when you get back - get that rifle sorted with proper AK kit...makes me sad seeing these rifles in their "hunting" guise.

      If that uses a normal AK scope-mount (ie. side mount) and you choose to go that route, let me know. I have a spare K-Var built model laying around somewhere. I also have a TWS dogleg rail optic mount, but not sure if the .308 is different than a normal AK layout concerning the rear leaf site.

      that tws rail mount looks pretty interesting from what i gathered from their website. on the saiga 308 the rear leaf sight is 100,200, and ends at 300 meters. it appears to be the same type of sight (ladder sight) as all the others.
      the rifle that i have is a short barrel, so i'm not exactly going for crazy range here, and instead, focus mostly on magnification like a simple reflex sight. also, when i was at the range the other day, my front sight was completely blocking the target at 100 meters.
      haha maybe i need to bring a target the size of a posterboard instead of on A4 sized paper
      thanks for the offer elbows
      say, anybody know a website for cheap .308 ammo?

      Yessir, the little cleaning kit (they actually vary from rifle to rifle sometimes) can be used for just about ANYTHING on your rifle.

      I think its blown up due to forums. Two people can have a problem and thread is 10 pages long. After reading so much about it I thought my front sight was canted. The forums made me crazy. I finally took a lazer line out and got it all line up and everything was fine.

      it's a real problem. i know a few guys (i the real world, not online) that had an issue with canted sights, not to mention 1000's of other in the fake world. mostly on wasr's and romak's built by cai monkeys.
      it's not just forum hoopla.

      I was specifically speaking towards Arsenals products not CAI and Lancaster which are known to have all sorts of issues.
