Phoenix area gun shop

My brother just gave me his Saiga 7.62x39 rifle as a b-day present and I want to convert it to accept regular AK-47 mags. I know you can make changes to the mags to work in the gun but I wanted to put a new pistol grip stock on it and while I was at it, change the internals too so it'll accept the high-cap AK-47 mags (and be 922r compliant). Anyways, does anyone know of a reputable gun shop that can do this type of work? I found out through making some calls that Mesa Gun Repair might be able to do it, but I have to take the gun down there (which I'm doing today after work) for them to look at it. So if you've had any good experiences with anyone, share the wealth! Thanks in advance!

Matt

Ok, word to the wise to anyone looking for anything gun related. Stay away from Mesa gun repair. I've never seen a gumpier group of old folks in my life, what a horrible experience. Anyways, just thought I'd throw that out there.

I agree that they're a great gunshop and have great deals (have been there before). But do they do gunsmithing too?

yes. I got my grandfathers whinchester 1917 without a bolt about a year ago. they found a bolt and put it all together. if they cant do it. there is a gun shop in chino valley called Mazys. Chino is just north of prescott and its easy to locate. However Mazy is kind of a jerk and I dont really recomend him to others, but if you really want to get this done, he might be another opportunity. sorry if I cant help yopu out further. The only thing I can tell you is call J&G first and ask if there is a chance they can do it. if not Im sure they will know a guy in PHX that might be able to as well.

Thanks, I'll see what I can do. I found a guy that came up with a trick for ak-47 mags that will work in my Saiga so I'm going to try that first. Otherwise I'll just have to add the feed ramp, etc to it.

Did you ever get the Saiga worked on? I would think it cheaper to just go up to J&G Sales and get an AK (less than $300.00) and keep the saiga as is. I have a Saiga .410 I love for Dove/quail/rabbit/squirrel/javelina hunting. If you have not yet taken it to Mesa Gun Shop you would be best to stay away. They ruined an remington 870 I owned when replacing a spring. He put new rivets that came through the receiver and then refused to clean up the mess.

I never did. I decided to leave it the way it was for now. I probably won't be messing around with it for a while either, I just moved to Pennsylvania about a week ago so I have other stuff higher up on the priority list.

Talking

Had to laugh at the statement that Dave Mazy is a jerk. My opinion of him isn't quite that high. The best gunsmith in this area is Jerry Hoover at Black Mesa Gunworks in Paulden.

Aztrainer has a very good reputation on FTE.Aztrainer has a very good reputation on FTE.Aztrainer has a very good reputation on FTE.
AK's are so chaep that you can pick up a Chinese one for around $300. You could pay more for Romaina and Russian. I have a Russian SKS that I got for $250 Unfired at Crossroads two years ago. Dang thing still had cosmaline in it.
