  1. Does anyone know a dealer that has both the MP5 & MP5K B&T stocks 'in stock' right now?
  2. I recently acquired an Izhmash rubber buttpad to add to a 12C folder. My Google Fu is failing me as I have yet to find a picture or procedure for installing this. I've read the older threads on this site regarding some issues that can arise with these... What I need to know is how to install them. From what it seems, you poke holes through the rubber to be able to install the screws to mount them. FYI, it replaces the Metal buttplate. I'm looking for confirmation/experience on how to install this buttpad. UPDATE: I sent a couple emails out to RKIs on the S12 platform; turns out if you
  3. Thanks for posting the rental site... Similar to jojo, I've passed on some dbl bbl shotguns due to dented barrels. It's not that I didn't know about the tool, but rather that I didn't want to pony up $500 for a new tool. I've looked for used dent removing tools, but I have never found one for a price I was willing to pay... Especially when I don't/won't buy one without having a true need for it. It's real nice to know that I can simply rent one as needed.
  4. Looks like the factory Molot 8rd mags are back @ $99 each tonight.
  5. From NY Dicktater's... Ahem... Governor's website Q: If I modify my gun by removing all design characteristics that makes it an assault weapon, do I have to register it? A: No. If you modify your gun so that it is not an assault weapon, you do not have to register it. The modification must be permanent however. This includes, for example, removing the bayonet lug by cutting or grinding, grinding off the threads on the barrel, removing the foregrip so that it cannot be readily reattached, or any change that cannot be reversed through reasonable means.
  6. I am looking to sell an original (Halo) Monolithic Arms S12 quadrail forearm with integrated sights. This is much heavier than most products on the market and helps with muzzle rise. No longer produced... as the company was acquired. I installed it on my S12 and used if briefly, but decided to go another direction with wood furniture. The forearm only has slight wear where it was installed/contacted the 'trunion' of the S12. Asking $175. Please IM if interested. (thanks for the reminder on 'Halo' Cobra... I actually forgot that was the original name)
  7. I originally posted this question to Carolina Shooters Supply, and they recommended that I contact you directly. Is it possible to get a Tromix stock with no mounting holes? ( As an FYI, I do not have a Tromix conversion) I'm interested in cutting the stock at a 3 degree angle, then drilling the holes to mount to the folding mechanism. This would easily allow for mounting the stock at the correct angle... And when folded to the right... provide the necessary clearance for the factory charging handle. I could always cut/sleeve/re-drill my current Tromix stock, but I'd prefer to just
  8. There are somem AK type firearms with the information on the trunion.. My Saiga 12 has the serial number on one side and the model, importer, city and state on the other side of the trunion. Granted... Those are very big trunions. Regardless, I do have a letter from the Tech Branch regarding the trunion. Once riveted to the sheet metal receiver, it becomes part of the receiver (basically considered as permanent as the metal strips in polymer framed firearms). If the trunion contains the original manufacturer's serial number, then it cannot ever be replaced because doing so would remove the
  9. I bought this fun NIB in 1998 directly from the importer (Kalashnikov USA) when the were initially showing them at a Tampa Bay gun show. I waited six years and then personally converted this shotgun the month after the AWB expiration. So, I know this is magazine release is factory because I removed the shotgun NIB from the box. I have no clue why it would be that short, but my original 12C LEO from 1999 has the newer style release as have all of my other S12s. From what I see in my other S12s, I have the same opinion as you... That the receiver block is the same... But that pin is almost c
  10. Is it possible to get a Tromix stock with no mounting holes? ( As an FYI, I do not have a Tromix conversion) I'm interested in cutting the stock at a 3 degree angle, then drilling the holes to mount to the folding mechanism. This would easily allow for mounting the stock at the correct angle... And when folded to the right... provide the necessary clearance for the factory charging handle. I could always cut/sleeve/re-drill my current Tromix stock, but I'd prefer to just cut and drill once and be done.
  11. Well... After years of running my S12 SBS with a factory magazine release, I'm interested in replacing the factory mag catch with an extended mag catch from JT. I have a 1998 Kalashnikov USA import and noticed that the spring and rear contact surface of this 'older' S12 is different than even the more recent imports. In addition the actual original lever is shorter than the more recent imports. For reference, the old style mag release has a typical coil spring (similar to a firing pin spring) that presses against the back top of the mag release to create the tension. My question is,
  12. I've been looking for a US made flash suppressor for for a Saiga 20 with the original Russian 20 threads. I've found a couple options on muzzle attachments, but none that mimic the Saiga 12 slotted flash suppressors. I'm looking for a flash suppressor type extension - not a choke, nut or AK-74 muzzle brake design. Question - Is anyone manufacturing these at this time? Thanks.
  13. To summarize all the posts above and add a bit more detail: In short, you can't make a 20 gauge or 12 gauge pistol due the 'smooth bore'. Smooth bore 'pistols' are not pistols... they are AOWs and subject to the NFA. Regarding the diameter of the bore. 'Pistols' with rifling are no longer pistols at 20gauge and 12 gauge diameter. So, if you want 'pistol' with less than an 18" barrel, you will need to register it as an AOW, Destructive Device or a Short Barrelled Shotgun. I haven't seen anyone register an S12 as a DD... and frankly I think most of us would prefer if everyone just steers cle
  14. First, the serial numbered part - by itself - is not considered the receiver if the BATF Tech Branch interprets the structure of the Saiga 12 the same as it has for AKs in its prior letters/rulings. Technically, when the 'trunion' contains the only serial number and it is 'permanently' riveted to the sheetmetal portion of the 'receiver' it becomes part of the permanent receiver. Both parts - combined - make up the receiver if the trunion has the only serial number. With AKs, the ATF will not allow you to replace a trunion (even though they classify serial numbered trunions as TRUNIONS) if
