  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. With the pandemic raging, I wanted to take a minute to tell all my bros on S-12 to hang in there and don't let the fake news get you down. We'll get this licked. Stay safe.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. One thing this has, I hope, shown this country is that you can't depend on a hostile communist regime for many of the essential items a country needs to thrive and survive. China is not our friend and the faster we divest ourselves from dependence on them the better. Praying for all here and our country.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  22. 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.

  24. 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!!😁😁😁

  25. 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.

  26. I trust nothing about all that we have heard about this. I think it is the most significant 'slight of hand' trick every played on American citizens. They are trying to keep us distracted from something else or they are setting us up to be accepting of something we would otherwise never allow.

  28. I think we've had quite enough of Chinese curses for awhile. All counrties affected by this escaped Chinese bioweapon known as Covid 19 need to tally up the total cost of this pandemic as close as they can and subtract it from any loans they have with China, as well as use it pay off any money owed to them for goods and/or services, then bill them for the balance, payable immediately.

  29. Still able to get filters for my mask around here. I'm running a P100 rated for acid vapor. Entertainment business is tits-up. Snagged the last 3 boxes of auto match, and the buckshot and AR/AK are gone. Glad I put up 4500 in 5.56 strippers when I did. AK's and S-12's are on hot standby. Repacked the freezer while everyone was fighting over toilet paper and bottled water. Won't be too bad if this goes six months, but will need resupply if it goes longer. Don't want to hit the bunker if I can help it. Most of the stocks are holding pretty good as they're in foods and paper, so we have m

  30. I don't know what to say. Really. All these people hoarding should have their asses kicked. Literally. This shit is just unreal. Yes, China should be held accountable for this shit. Just as with the other shit sandwich viruses that came from them. But they will not. China's grasp is far too powerful. Now, as for the US, we CAN come away from this with our economic heads out of our asses IF we learn to start cutting reliance on them. We shall see. But I believe to many Politicians as well as Business's have deep pockets with them. AND I hope the media gets it in their ass for all of t

  34. 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

  37. 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....

  38. On a better note... a simple loogie out the window makes those pesky tailgaters back off fast! Would you believe I just saw two kids out riding their bicycles? Un-fucking believable. State-wide stay-at-home order, and they're out without a care in the world. I guess they inherited their stupidity from their parents.

  40. Wife sent me out for milk because she needs it to take some of her medication. Got to the local store before 8:00 am and a 2 block line was evident. Got in line and a person from New York City told me to get 6 ft away from him. The funny thing was he was only 3 ft away from the guy in front of him. I told him NO! just to give him a moment of helplessness. I then told him I will give you your space but you need to get a grip. If you are that fearful about getting sick, you should not be here in line. Beaches, Bars ,Food ect all closed.. The Snow birds are not happy . As for me,

  42. I'm not sure I see the point of a $200+ CMC or $300 Elftman drop in trigger over a Tapco G2 for $45 or an ALG for $90. Take apart your gun, convert it and learn about the AK fire control group. It's not that difficult.

  46. We always need to remember that... If involved in a 100% clear cut legal self defense shooting, you will still more than likely be initially treated as a criminal by LE. Be cool! Take everything with a smile and good attitude, say as little as possible and talk to a lawyer ASAP. Lawyer before statement if at all possible. Best to have already retained & talked to a lawyer, and know what he wants you to say.

  48. ? Did this get moved at some point? it's in the All Weapons - General Discussion -> Other Weapons - SHOTGUNS (non-AK based). It is in the right place on the forum for non-Saiga silly-fun guns. While I'm not sure it'd be worth fussing with a 2.75" overall length all-brass case for slugs out of a saiga, it'd be entertaining to shoot a 4ga. To be honest, though, I'm more interested in big-bore airguns than big-bore rifles.
