    Inserting a Mag

    GOB Thanks for your reply, but unfortunately, I cannot get the mag to lock in when the bolt is closed, so that a shell will not be chambered. After trying for a while, I looked at the top shell and that is when I saw it was deformed. I tried again with a new shell on the top and the bolt closed, and again it would not lock in. The new top shell was also again deformed. The mag locks in just fine when the bolt is retracted and a shell is chambered, but I want to lock in the mag and NOT chamber a shell. Jack

    Inserting a Mag

    I want to travel with my Saiga with a mag inserted but no round in the chamber. I lock the bolt back and insert the mag. How do I now let the bolt go forward but not chamber a round? I had tried simply pushing the round down as I let the bolt go forward, but for me, that doesn’t seem to work. If I try to load the mag with a closed bolt, the top shell deforms somewhat on the crimped end. I am using a 10 round AGP mag with 10 rounds loaded. How can I do this? Thanks for your help. Jack

  7. Howdy, so I have picked up a few saiga's to convert and some of these have some wear and i wanted to restore finish, etc. I have a nice paint that i really like, but my question is the writing / serial number. How are you guys keeping these looking good? The paint finish looks great but kinda covers the writing. Do you etch it back out after the paint cures?

That is what the IZ-433 model designates. -This factory configuration is very rare, as few were imported in this configuration before the new US Russian import ban took effect in 2014. You can see an old web page on Atlantic Firearms describing the IZ-433. -No parting out. -Are you the original first owner? YES -Fired round count? ~500 WALMART BIRD SHOT and 20 SLUGS -Who install the AK-100 folding stock? LOCAL MACHINIST/FABRICATOR -Who install the trigger? OWNER INSTALLED -Who install the muzzle brake? LOCAL TIG WELDER -Any blemishes, chips or damage? WHAT YOU SEE IN THE PICTURES -What is included? Box? Manual? EVERYTHING IN THE PICTURES AND THE BOX WITH ALL FACTORY ACCESSORIES -Why are these Federally banned? POLITICS. -What makes this California legal? The installed MagLatch gas port plug converts the shotgun into bolt-action, conforming with all requirements of SB 880/AB 1135. With the gas port plug installed in California, the shotgun does not need to be registered as an assault weapon, can use the factory magazine release without a tool, and can have a folding stock. MagLatch Gas Plug has not been approved by the CA DOJ. This device is designed to conform to the law as written in SB-880/AB 1135 which states: “Semiautomatic” means a firearm functionally able to fire a single cartridge, eject the empty case, and reload the chamber each time the trigger is pulled and released. Further, certain necessary mechanical parts that will allow a firearm to function in a semiautomatic nature must be present for a weapon to be deemed semiautomatic. A weapon clearly designed to be semiautomatic but lacking a firing pin, bolt carrier, gas tube, or some other crucial part of the firearm is not semiautomatic for purposes of Penal Code sections 30515, 30600, 30605(a), and 30900.

  11. I'll reply when get settled this evening. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of what might work.
  12. @evlblkwpnz I appreciate the offer and I'll definitely take you up on any info you'd be willing to share...thank you. I just sent an email titled "JTS M12AK"
  13. Saiga-12 is 1.5mm too. The bulged receiver (around the trunnion) is the main design difference in the V12 and S12 receivers. Saiga rifles had 1.0 thick receivers as well as most rifle varants.. OP, I haven't handled any of the JTS product yet, but it looks to have the same front handguard retainer width as an AKM. You should email me. I will send measurements of a couple of handguards and you can compare it with what you have to shed some light on your options. evlutionz@yahoo.com
  14. Thanks for your help!! Much appreciated.
  15. Except for the gas plug/puck it is the same as any other AK. There are plenty of printed and video tutorials on AK maintenance to be found.
  16. Where can I find printed instructions about how to disassemble and assemble my Saiga 12.

    Poly, AGP Steel, CSSpecs
  18. It is amazing that those parts hold up but the geometry of that is different and the forces have more dampening. With the magazine, the geometry of it relative to the recoil and the shockwave having no dampening, it puts the material is at a big disadvantage

    Factory Izhmash or Csspecs
  20. Are there any markings? Are the locking lugs metal?
  21. These 1/6 scale trucks are fast and way more force is exerted on these than would be seen on a magazine. They sell and they hold up better than the factory A arms. People raise hell with them.
  22. I appreciate the follow-up because I want to add a different handguard. I just wasn't sure what it would be closest to in design. For the sake of asking, do you have any handguard recommendations for the M12AK?
  23. Reading the description on the JTS M12, it was built on the RPK receiver. That is a 1.5mm receiver, so it would be closer to the VEPR not the Saiga-12 which is on the 1.0mm receiver. /sarcasm on now where's my flamethrower....

    The AGPs are the closest you can get to the Russian 8's. If you prefer to go to a metal magazine look up CSS spec. I've used them both and I'm quite happy with them.
