    Hey everyone, my name is Mr B (until we go fully public). Me and a good friend of mine are currently looking at producing a belt feeding device for Saiga 12's, AR-15's and 10's, and 7.62 AK's. We're currently working on prototypes at the moment, and seem to have a proof of concept. This being said, me and him are pursuing a patent for our design and intend to take precision machining classes this coming fall to help produce it, and production within the next two years (hopefully, I don't want to make promises I cannot keep). I wanted to see how interested the Saiga community would be in purchasing a product like this. The device allows you to feed a belt holding 100 rounds (these belts can be clipped together). We currently have a functional battery operated prototype and are working on designing a spring loaded design. This device feeds shells into the Saiga while consecutively ejecting the belt (by one slot) every time a shell is ejected. Obviously the largest market is the AR and AK markets, but I feel like you guys are hungry to pop off 100 rounds of birdshot without reloading. Please let us know if you're interested in this project. We're both young entrepreneurs and want to build you guys something incredible. Again sorry for the vagueness. As a side-note, this product is not legally defined as a high capacity magazine by California law etc. The feeding device is intended to feed a belt in and out of it, and it may hold shells if you choose to do such.This being said, we intend to sell this product to every state in these states united. With this being said, it is also a clear, hard, and large screw you to the states that like to restrict your fun. As another side-note, this belt feeding device will not require modification for your firearm (upper reciever etc.), and will work with any firearms that take standard Saiga magazines. Price comes out to $100 or so

    Depends what your looking for. If I can't do it, or I think I'll be too expensive I'll tell you.. I might have a suggestion for another shop or two depending on what the part is. I gave a price to a company back five months ago, and I felt like I was too high at first, but it was what I could do.. Well last week they came back and gave the green light for production, along with asking for quotes on three other parts.. So apparently I'm the cheapest option around for those parts... Surprised me. Asking is pretty cheap (free).. Just try to have a drawing in my hands so I know what I'm looking at, a pencil drawing on printer paper is OK it just needs to have dimensions on it otherwise my brother gets really pissy.. And if I know what price point your going for I can help cut costs or increase quality depending on the goal.

    Well I'd suggest trying to get a single well made product off the ground as quickly as possible.. I think you'll find the AR-15 crowd to be very large. Shotgun shells are difficult. Our first couple times tackling shotgun shell magazines did not go perfectly and it took multiple attempts to get it right, rifle rounds are significantly easier. As for a patent, be ready for a cost as high as $10-15K, the file online patents are basically worthless because your claims have to have a very specific wording to work.. Also expect to find a few similar devices, because belt feed conversions of box magazine rifles have been tested back as early as the 30s, most of the time they worked well but took to many modifications to the original rifle to be worth doing... So if you get it worked out to be plug and play you probably have a winner of a product. If you want some general suggestions on manufacturing google my user name.. My contact page has a phone number and an email address. I've been making gun parts for a decade and can give you some tips on how to get your product off the ground.. Just don't tell me much or anything about it until you have it protected.. I have a cnc mill, cnc laser and am happy to do short run contract manufacturing.

    Mostly a mill. The stepped hole for the gas tube was done on a lathe.

    Agreed. I’ll try anything once. If it works well, I’m in!

    Sounds interesting if the production model works reliably

    Pressure is greatest at the chamber, and decreases as the bullet travels down the barrel increasing the volume that the gas has to expand into. I would be hesitant to turn a barrel down too close to the chamber.

    I haven't acquired a new long gun in awhile and figured it was past time to do so. I looked at my rather long Wish List and decided it was either going to be a AR15NM or an AK47. Several rifles caught my attention but i finally settled on a brand new Arsenal AK47 SLR-107FR. Top of the line Bulgarian stamped goodness, I'm happy as the proverbial pig knee deep in slops. And here she is with the rest of my AK platform long arms. Saiga ver.21 .308, Saiga 12g, Saiga AK47, Arsenal AK47 SLR-107FR

    I believe that the closer we get to the 2020 election we will see civil unrest in this country on a scale not seen since the 1960's. The Red/Blue separation comes down to one simple question: Do you support the United States Constitution, Bill of Rights and Rule of Law or don't you? We live in interesting times. Keep your powder dry boys.

    I don’t think you have to worry about the country dividing. The most likely senerio is we kick the shit out of those areas and when the dust settles they emerge from their basements with a whole new level of I better shut the hell up. You have all heard the sentiment growing. A very large percentage of their supporters won’t fight for themselves let alone a nation or idea. We are the working class, we are the farmers, we are law enforcement, we are the military, we are the gun owners... They are the pansies, the felons, the lazy, the dependents...

    To Ronin38: Thank you Sir for the info. about Pennsylvania and New York. It is encouraging to know what you wrote. Therefore, I hope the cars I've seen with plates from PA and NY are being driven by "Red" folks. Please understand how down in the southern states we tend to generalize the northeast as being "blue" country. I have relatives in Connecticut and they're all "blue" folks. Anyway ... regarding my original post that begins this thread, I'm just worried how the left seems to be "balkanizing" our country. It wouldn't surprise me if the map turns into a "blue" left coast, a "blue" northeast, and a big "red" region in the middle that are three separate countries one day. The folks in Chicago seem to be at the tip of the spear for all of this. I hope folks in PA keep making long rifles!!!

    For the record, PA (like NY and a few others) is NOT a "Blue" state. It's a Red state that has to suffer through all the crap forced upon them by the Blue hordes in a few big cities in that state. I know many people from NY who would be ecstatic if they could just wall off everything east of I-295 so they could live a good life in the real world. Everyone I grew up with in PA, just east of Pittsburgh, is most definitely Republican.

    What’s wrong with Chicago?...It is run by Democrats. Period. Show me one thing, anything that they touch that does not turn to complete crap. We have liberals moving into AL by the droves from the craphole cities they just left saying it is too expensive to live there and there is no opportunity. Out of the other side of their mouth they complain about why AL hasn’t banned plastic bags and ‘Vote Blue in 2020’ It has to be a mental disease! They can in no way make the connection that the very party and policies they vote for turns their community, city, and state into the autocratic high tax spawn of hell, they want to leave. NY just killed a bill to help members of Gold star families go to college, while just a week earlier they set aside millions to help Illegal aliens go to college? People actually defend killing a baby at term citing “choice”? It would seem that this country is marching straight toward Concord (Version 2019), and I would hate to be one of these American hating politicians if that happens. Regardless, at some point soon accountability has to come. Apologies....Rant over! Sincerely, Pissed in Alabama

    SLR-107FR Decided I liked it better with a triangle and Bakelite furniture. My thanks to some of the guys in the AKFiles Marketplace. Now to find some nice Bulgy mags and bayonet in Bakelite.

    In my opinion, a gunsmith's #1 skill asset is the ability to swing a hammer with power and precision. Without it, one is really painted into a very small corner of potential activities. Your local 'smiths may be a little short on that asset. Either that or they can't figure out how to get the catch and spring back in there at the same time, which is fairly easy with a slave pin.
