    Arsenal/Saiga smashing rounds in mag

    Most likely it does not like what you are feeding it! S-.410's are PICKY! Couldn't hurt to clean her either.
  3. Mossberg 930s have a buffer spring in the stock so without extensive redesign folding stock are not an option
  4. yep, wish he woulda just built it instead of spending gigantour sums of cash on that gas tube assy thing... great story about the history up their! i know how ya feel about these white whales... i had a tree blow over in my yard in OKC, OK 6-8 years ago.... didnt save fruit or leaves or flowers... flash forward 4 years and still cant figure it out... been using it for BBQ but its "cultivar" is still a mystery... hind sight is always 20/20 etc... yes, most folks dont seem to mind talking on phone etc, kinda sad we lack in the history recording department in this hobby....
  5. well the nfl gambled and lost, and now and now they look stupid and cant retract their words or feelerz dominated logic stuff...
  6. i am still just disappointed that more of these arent sold and dissected and discussed ad nauseum, especially on here... i mean we all hem and haw about innovation etc, but here is a product that we all were hyped for and now its finally here, and because sanctions and bills not back getting nooky in the white house we dont buy it? maybe im just introspecting i dunno....
  7. That was my favorite part. Some other members also had some interesting things and links there too.

    Ejecting Problem

    Ok I'm back and motivated, havent been on this thread since my last posts and havent had time to get to the range. I'll be ordering a Wolff XP spring and give that a try, I might even try and modify the dust cover, that slowmotion video from Mancat sure shows how the shells could get back in the receiver. I'll report back with my findings soon!

    Arsenal/Saiga smashing rounds in mag

    What kind of FCG is in it? I'm wondering if your hammer is sitting highand the bolt is skipping over top driving the shell downward.
  11. Pucked up an Arsenal converted Saiga 410 the other day. Its dirty and needs a cleaning bad though it seems to be fine otherwise. I only have the 3" mag and for some reason the next round isn't always stripped off the top but pushed forward and down into the mag jamming the mag up. Any suggestions on that?
  12. I have briefly looked around a few times in my profile and can't figure out whether we still have signatures or not. That space was a great place for a brief advertisement.

    Saiga 12 Bolt Head Damage

    I always use the factor gas regulator. Believe it or not, it is less restrictive than the aftermarket gas regulators. I modify them for multiple gas settings, but nothing else it done to them. Not being able to see the weapon I can't give any solid suggestion that would be more than a shot in the dark. I can tell you that it is entirely possible to make them run reliably on bulk pack ammo and safely with 3" loads by using factory parts.

    Saiga 12 Bolt Head Damage

    I will take pics once Tony returns the bolt & carrier along with any instructions. The swapping of the forward recoil spring first using the OEM Plug then the Tac47 both still experiencing the SP’s only to be apparently resolved with the Gunfixr plug does not seem logical. I want to see another 35-50 rounds of Federal BS then 10-15 slugs on the 1 or -1 Gunfixr function 100% before any other spring changes. I realize all your feedback is not to resolve the SP’s. I do have a NIB Saiga complete recoil rod assembly or I can purchase a couple new full power springs from CS. BTW: what gas plug do you use on your builds? I’m open to how to resolve the SP’s.
  16. I can't afford the trial and error of legal issues, lol. Too much potential for loss there. I have paid lawyers twice in my life. The first time was a flop and he didn't get done the main thing I wanted done at the time, but it did not lead to a significant loss of money. The second time was a colossal home run. That cost me about $10k and saved me much more. It is hard to tell at the start as to whether or not the pursuit will be worth it. At least with gunsmithing you have a good idea of how it is supposed to go and you know you will walk away with something of value if the smith is decent. I hope to never need any more lawyering for the rest of my life aside from some contractual work on some things on my to-do list for the shop and the official closing or selling out of my pool company. As required, much like you
  17. If the "magic" happens in the tower, that makes sense.
  18. Modifying the existing mag wouldnt be patent infringement. Someone couldn’t swap out the tower though for another. They would have to use the tower as is or modified and use the existing tower.
  19. But what Mike D. has to do to protect himself and his patents, is a completely different thing from what Joe Random Gunsmith like Evl would have to concern himself with, when combining commercially available parts. About the only thing Mossberg could really do to keep people from using their products in a way they don't approve of is to not sell them to anyone in the first place. With Mike they have an agreement that spells out exactly each party's obligations, so it's apples vs. oranges.

    Why I do it? Doing custom work on the Saiga 12

    There are times when it is rough here, but sometimes it really feels like a community of people who are on the same team. I am proud to be just a small part of it.

    Saiga 12 Bolt Head Damage

    It looks kind of like you are doing it right as far as where the straight edge is placed. Looks significantly out of whack. However, if it runs well and the bolt head damage doesn't get much worse, keep on rocking it. You might take a picture of the bolt now and another from the same distance and angle after the next few hundred rounds and see if it looks any worse. Pictures never forget what something looked like.

    Still just my hands but I think I'm getting real close:

    Why I do it? Doing custom work on the Saiga 12

    I had been away from the forum for sometime so I’m not aware of the apparent purging. I appreciate what you’ve all shared. I’ve been serving my clients for over 37 years and feel blessed to say how much I enjoy what I do after so many years. There are certainly times when the utility value of the money earned is secondary to truly serving while hopefully exceeding my clients expectations. If anyone reads my post on my bolt head damage they will quickly , as I have, understand your hearts. Your desire to all help me is unprecedented not to mention my testing your patience...

    Kalashnikov USA finally shipping Saiga 12

    Thats good news! At least they are taking it in, hopefully they will get you right.
  25. Think of it as cheap preventative-medicine lawyering, rather than the expensive cleaning up a cancerous mess after it is probably too late kind.
  26. For him to protect his patentability, he would need (not want. Need) a written NDA. Prior disclosure can be an absolute bar to patent. Mike needs a standard NDA form based on the work he does. It's also a good tool to keep excited inventors thinking straight about what to do and not do while fundraising, etc.
  27. I hope this picture doesn't constitute evidence of a breach of your agreement with mossberg, Mike. I'd hate to have you get burned on something like that. If you are worried about recoil, why not tack on a reinforcement plat in the critical areas? Did you have to cut a lot of meat out of the mag itself? Also, why
