FAQ About Bullet Guides
Why do I need a
-Bullet guides are only
needed if you are going to use standard AK magazines on your Saiga or Vepr
-You must also remove a small
amount of material from the top of your guns magazine latch where the latch
locks in the magazine to use AK mags.
-If you are buying SGM
magazines we sell, you do not need a bullet guide for them to work properly.
If I install a
bullet guide can I still use my Factory mags?
-Yes, the factory magazines
will still work with the bullet guide installed. You must shave the top front
edge of the magazine where it touches the bullet guide so the magazine can lock
into the magwell.
How do I know
which bullet guide my rifle needs?
-If you have a 7.62 rifle,
you will need a 7.62 Bullet guide. 223 rifles take 223 bullet guides. 5.45
Rifles need the 5.45 Bullet guides.
-Now there are 2 bullet
guides for each caliber. Round and Flat.
-You must match the contour
of the trunnion where the bullet guide sits.
(There is a picture showing
the difference on each bullet guide product page)
-A Round trunnion is smooth
and slightly curved.
-A Flat trunnion has a
notch(cut out) where the bullet guides sits down in.
-Both are easy to install if
you take your time. Small taps break easily if you force them. (We have an
installation Video on each bullet guide product page)
-All of our bullet guides
have a lip on the back that slides under the barrel.
-All bullet guides will hang
over the edge of the trunnion slightly except for the 7.62 Flat. This bullet
guide will sit flush the edge of the trunnion.
