And just as a curiosity, does your 2011 SGL21-94 have a milled or stamped gas tube lever?

My intention of this thread a long time ago when started was not to learn more about the folding stock models, but a big thank you to all that have posted and provided information about them in here. I have always thought there there is a lack of info on the SGL folders.

really hard to tell. I took a few pics and zoomed in. I'll posted them later, but what's the debate over milled vs stamped?

From the functionality side nothing, however the correct part on a stamped receiver rifle should be a stamped gas tube lever.

There has been comments made on this post claiming that SGL21-94’s may have been assembled with incorrect parts. I’ve never seen that that’s why i ‘m asking since you also own this model.

Here you go StayReady, Milled vs the correct Stamped version. Some of these 94's did come with the Milled versions installed as was discussed both here and on several other forums in the past.

Yours is like this I assume?

Regarding the import timeframe and dated rifles. I'd figure the whole process from production, paperwork, importing, conversion etc would take time which would explain 09 dated 21-94'...

Incorrect:


Correct:
Edit: Its not just the 94 model that experienced this inconsistency, I've seen several Saiga's both 21's, 26 & 31's listed recently on GB that had both types of RSB's.

If Arsenal Las Vegas installed it on a factory SGL21-94 then it's "correct" for a factory SGL21-94. I couldn't get any conclusive production information from Arsenal when I called them. But the woman I talked to said she could confirm for you whether your gun was a factory 21-94 or not if you gave her the serial number.

It must be the altitude up there in UT but didn't we touch on this back on 11/14 in post 272?

I would be skeptical of a gun with an "09" date being an actual factory Arsenal SGL21-94. I didn't remember the folding stock version being available in 09. I found this posting on the Saiga Forum from K-var dated 2011.

http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?...6687-sgl21-94/

That's not to say that it would not have been possible for them to have built some SGL21-94s with two or three year old parts. I think it's far more likely that an "09" gun is an aftermarket conversion. As I mentioned before I don't feel bad that my gun is not an original SGL21-94 because it's closer to a military AK103 than the SGL21-94 is.

Thanks for the pics. It appears that I have the "incorrect" one. I'm very upset! I'm done with this Slightly used SGL21-94 with less than 200rds through it. The first $3000 offer I get can have it

Different comment and different context. You made a suggestion about verifying the status of a particular rifle. Possibly you had done it but possibly it was nothing more than an idea you had , you didn't specify. Two and a half weeks later, I specifically confirmed that this service was available form Arsenal.

I was prompted to do this by chile1's continuing obsession with the style of gas tube levers on factory SGL21-94s after the evidence indicates they came with both types of levers. It appeared to me , and I may be wrong, that he was concerned about whether his SGL21-94 was a factory gun or an after market conversion.

I was just busting your chops, and yes I confirmed w/Arsenal about a particular serial number proposed to me which is what prompted me to type in that info for others.

Hell since your selling, maybe we can work out a deal for your factory safety lever and I can send your a "close replacement" which will compliment your RSB.

No, not obsession but only trying to call you out for trying to make generalizations based on one or two sample points. Iíll argue that the one or two rifles with mixed matched parts are after market converts trying to pass themselves for the real deal.

And by the way there is no concerns on my end on my SGL21-94 given that i have the documentation to go with it (inc K-Var sales receipt).

I said it before " the evidence indicates they came with both types of levers."

Just to further educate those that talk yet have no horse in the race. see what a genuine SGL21-94 owners manual looks like:

Default Lever or whole rear sight block different?

On the SGL21-94, is it just lever itself thats different, or is it the entire rear sight block thatís different?

I think what the SGL lacks IMO is the Marshall plate. I know its been discussed ad nauseam but I'd have one installed.
@ fourthfourmag, what did you mean by the hole for the rearward trigger setup in the post above?

I was just teasing him about the sporter hole. Pop off your top cover, you'll see the rectangle hole just behind the trigger guard rivet area.

This rectangular cut out (circled in red)? I was trying to figure out what this rectangular cut out was for... seems unnecessary. Whats it for? I was thinking these 94s might have come in as sporters given this looks like a trigger cut out to me, its located right above the pistol grip.
