  1. My mother was born and raised just 2 blocks from where the riots have burnt a good portion of it. I was born close to the area and remember spending the summer with my grandparents there. It was a great place to live. But like all cities the middle and upper middle class moved out of downtown Minneapolis and went to the suburbs. Minneapolis has become like many cities only attractive to the lower class. Crime is high and tax dollar intake is not enough to sustain it. It will take years to rebuild this area if it ever will. Now they have voted to end the police force? This city is no

  2. I've been a member here since 2008. Don't know how many are still around from that time, but I'm guessing there are still quite a few who may remember me. After a devastating house fire in 2014, in which I lost nearly every thing I owned (got a few tools out in the aftermath, and a few firearms, two of which were my S12 and my 7.62x39), I had to start over completely. Been doing a lot of different things in the last 6 years, but thought it was time to get back to my AK roots. Hope you all have been doing okay. You'll see my ugly mug hanging out here again.

  4. So a dream of mine has always been to have a safe room. Living in the southern portion of tornado alley, many us either have spaces that are reinforced or underground. Moved recently and finlly converted our reinforced tornado shelter into a gun safe room as well. It’s not all that big at 80 sqft, but the only way to get to it is via a secret entrance, and it also doubles as my man cave and reloading room. Still some more work to do.

  5. I'm pretty sure I had this crap in December. I ran a fever off and on for a few days. That coupled with some other issues was really clobbering me. I had a dry cough for weeks and never thought much about it. A lot of people around here are saying they had a similar experience before this stuff got sensationalized.

  8. There is a gas puck in there, it is like an intermediate gas piston to cycle the bolt. A regular AK doesn't have that. So it could be that had been stuck before with dried grease and you just loosened it up. Why not just take off the gas plug and pull out the puck and see if that was it.

  9. Cadiz gun works did an underfolder conversion on a Saiga-12 years ago. The recoil was described as "brutal" if I remember correctly. Cobra did a polymer block external and slipped it on one of his as well. I can't recall much beyond that it couldn't open/ close over magazines. I put a similar polymer external block on my 7.62x39 without changing out the rear trunnion. It has the classic underfolder wobble, but if I get tired of it I can still go back to a fixed stock or folder.

  10. It has been pretty quiet. Not like the hey day with the new people asking the same questions every week. I miss the earlier days when we were modding parts out of whatever we could. Not saying the guys who spun up to make parts didn't do an awesome job. Just seemed like a tighter community of people who tinker. The import ban basically killed the tinkering/modding so there isn't too much traffic.

  16. At work we're having trouble getting parts from suppliers (Defense). I'd think Shannon's in the same boat as the rest of us, maybe more so, as he's just a little guy, not a huge .gov contractor. He's a stand-up guy. He'll do you right.

  17. Just loaded 400 rounds of 300 blackout and 400 round of 556. Went to our Local Farm store Rural King to get pork rinds and the the gun department was packed with dozens of people filling out paperwork or buying ammo. One way or another things will even out. The real truth of Life is we all have a capacity to Hate. Getting over it is the real task even when we know we will always be hated. Defeat your enemy's and then move on. This is what will bring us to normal

  18. It is likely about 19-3/16". There really isn't much to gain there without going SBS. I'd leave it as-is. If you are just bored and pretty good with your hands maybe it is worth it, but it definitely wouldn't be worth it to pay someone else to do it.

  21. Did you do this with a full mag? Try downloading the mag. Start with ONE shell in the mag and see if it loads right, then work your way up from there. You could just have issues with a stiff mag spring.

  23. Highpockets... Someone spent a bit of money to put it together that way from the original factory configuration. Change anything you don't like, and keep what you do. If it's the way you like it...then you scored a great find!! You didn't have to mess with it to get what you wanted! It's only more desirable to someone who wants their rifle set up that way. If you're happy with it... It sure beats having to source all the aftermarket parts and do the work yourself... You get the benefit without the hassle!!😁😁😁

  24. A brand name only impresses snobs. I've shot many guns others have brought to the range, name brand, off-brand, and homebrew. Stars and clunkers both in most of them. Look how people used to turn up their noses at a Savage Tactical, but spent $$$ for a (insert high speed low drag name here) that shot the same give or take a very small margin. ...bless their little hearts.

  25. I actually forgot that I still have my Saiga 308. I have a couple of surefire 20 round mags. I noticed my dealer has a 4 more of them. 3 25 and 1 20 rounders. I think I should grab those.

  26. That looks like a UTG AK scope mount. It slides onto the rail on the side of the weapon, and then the lever on the bottom locks it in place. I have the same mount for my Saiga 12.

  29. Yeah probably for the best. Nothing stopping me from the MKA-1919 and clones, except for a HUGE lack of consistency with the guns. I can't afford to fix that mess.. There are products we have walked away from because the original makers botched their quality control to the point that it is too costly to fix the problems, people have this idea that shipping stuff back and forth is cheap, how much profit is left shipping a $40 item back and forth a few times at $11.95 per trip? Nothing. I can and do make stuff that is not for guns. I like making gun parts, it's fun. But I'd rather weld

  30. Been a while. I miss the old days when we were all working on some Saiga project. My father recently passed, and in his gun collection I found a NIB Saiga 223. I have converted x39's, but never the 223. Any tips, suggestions, warnings? IIRC, there were different 223 models that required different conversion parts.....or am I mistaken? Does the 223 require a bullet guide? I know there is a company that converts saiga 223's to accept AR mags....is that a good option? Just really exploring the what if's right now. Thanks!

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  36. Thanks for the info. I wanted to update this thread and anybody who is interested, I was contacted back by rusgunmaster. He said he’d send me a tracking number soon but needed a few days. Today I received a tracking number from rusgunmaster. He warned me that during this pandemic, unfortunately there are interruptions in air traffic and the operation of mail services, a delay may happen but I don’t need to worry. He will always be in touch with me. I’m now pleased with all this and it’s been good business so far. I will update on if I received my parts and if everything is there that I ordered

  38. I recently picked up an unconverted Saiga-12 from my LGS and found my way here by way of the AK Files, the consensus there was this was THE place to learn about all things Saiga-12. It was a consignment sale and came complete with a Wraithmaker 20-round drum, two 5-round Izzy mags and one 10-round AGP Arms magazine. I was quite surprised when I initially handled it as I thought it was new, it barely had the typically safety lever scratch which normally happens after wiping the safety up and down a few times on any AK. The salesman at the LGS said if I was at all unsatisfied with it that

  40. Patriot, you are correct. We NEVER HOARD and damn if it almost didn't bone us this time. I have 8 and 12 year old girls (recent bdays for both) and as I said, luckily we had enough of what we needed. But fuck hoarders and I hope they choke on the shit. But that's just me....

  41. It does help some. Pair it with a good recoil pad and it should make your experience better. Mine did cause issues when running light Winchester target loads, but those rounds were garbage anyway. I changed my configuration so I'm no longer using my hydraulic buffer, it's used but in good working condition and if you want it I'll sell for $90 shipped. (It's the Enidine branded version, looks like a buffer tube and takes standard AR15 stocks.)

  42. Two years... Really?! Damn, I really do miss the days when this place was active as a kicked ant hill. My thread, my problem I guess, and by request. Beef Wellington. A bit labor intensive, but well worth it, time well spent. I've learned that the three primary ingredients are all very important and worth every effort to do right. The Beef needs to be a center cut of tenderloin for it to be an even thickness and tender as butter. When you sear the beef have that pan smoking hot and use minimal oil. The Duxelles need to be minced pretty fine
