  1. i guess the best option would be to buy a saiga 12 completly strip it down to individual parts, keep the bits you want and sell off the rest, you never know it may be worth much more in parts than a complete gun(like cars are)
  2. He proably knows his suff but how many of the guns he worked on had chrome bores? i would be concerned at the possibility of the chrome lifting in the area directly in front of the machined area.i have seen pictures of chrome lifting from s12 gas ports, its only a tiny disturbed area and the pressure and gas wash are lower there due to the distance from the chamber.
  3. remember how powerful the soviet union was before it broke up! a divided America would be just what china (and others )would like.
  4. those are excellent drawings, that 4 year old has skill! i wasnt getting that kind of detail when i was 12. ,in fact i wouldnt have even thoughy of those cool designs, just copied something from a comic. i say well done for the kid being creative, using colours to highlight different parts, it even shows how parts interact with each other. the teacher involved should be trying to encourage creativity not kill it off!
  5. the engineers are pretty clever, the guy opperating the machines or doing the QC inspection in the factory may not be as smart or care as much about the final product (especially on a friday afternoon!)
  6. maybe approaching this one step at a time would be a better option? ie make several prototypes each a little more complicated than the last, that way you get a few small problems to solve each time rather than dozens try fitting a rifled blank to a saiga 12 using an existing S12 make a new front trunion with a quick change barrel option machine up a complete receiver ,fit existing S12 parts to it. each completed prototype can be sold off to pay for the next step, you learn from each one and the final model can incorperate all good features of the prototypes. people like you are the future of the industry, dont listen to anybody who says it wont work, wont sell, wont look cool, whatever! build it for yourself, learn from it, make it better the next time. DO IT!
  7. This guy seems pretty upset about not being able to own a firearm ? i have heard that in the US(im from nz) you can own any blackpowder firearm without a licence, if that is true why dosnt he just get a nice ruger old army and modern inline bp rifle, both are equal to most centerfire firearms in accuracy, slow to reload for sure and need some maintanence but good for any threat from 6feet away to 600 feet away. they may even be more usefull when centerfire ammo runs scarse? bottom line is 6 accuratly placed shots from an ROA will beat a mag full of rounds being sprayrd gangster style from a glock!
  8. enjoy it! its a chance to go to work, swan about and do bugger all while still getting paid. listen to a few speaches instead of hammering bits of jet engine together.you can play spot the security guy with your workmates. have fun !
  9. i got a tc encore barrel sent out to me in new zealand just before christmas(not from brownells), it arrived 3 weeks later, usps tracking still shows it still in america? their international tracking is sometimes spot on, i have read that it been delevered and its sitting in my mail box, other times its not updated untill long after the parcel has arrived.
  10. you are now the legal property of the person who branded you!
