  1. Wow the ancient ones being summoned huh? Howdy old brothers! I'm still around and still doing top quality work on S-12, Vepr, and AK action components. I check PMs and lurk occasionally, sometimes make a comment or reply.... Hell I figured I'd lay off posting for awhile since even though I haven't much in years, my post count is still thousands above the next runner up I think...lol. Was last time I checked anyway. Yup still alive and well...somehow...
  2. Yep I'm still here. Sorry for the long silence I haven't even logged in here since last year sometime. Got behind on work due to some major catastrophes on the home front, so I decided to stop posting anything, anywhere online, until I could get things worked out here and get all my work caught up. Glad to say now that all is good, my backlogged work is completely CLEARED and SHIPPED (as of last week) , and I'm BACK! I'm doing some of the best work I've ever done! ...and with MUCH faster turn around times, so get in touch if you need your Saiga or Vepr running much better! I'll be posting a new thread soon with lots of pics of completed work, some recently shipped. Have a great weekend!
  3. Well I checked my email records and sent one email to a guy named Parker I did some work for 4 yrs ago. He already answered back and looks like it's not him. Only other Parker was an SBS's bolt job another year. Tried to help anyway... At first glance it sounds to me like he needs to test the gun with all original gas system parts, and if it's been converted make sure the hammer was done correctly. Also with only 3 ports large enough to "stick a paper clip in..."...that's normally not enough to cycle low brass well, but it should still cycle buck and slugs. Oh well good luck.
  4. I'm so very sorry for your loss JDeko. Hits close to home as I just found out my own Dad has seriously advanced lung cancer now and was just given about a 10% survival rating even with Chemo and Radiation. Cancer is such a horrible thing... Anyway I'm sorry he sounds like a great man and a great father.
  5. Wow Patrick thanks brother I appreciate the kind words and trust. I can guarantee you the work done will be second to none and your shotgun will run smoother and better. Looking forward to your email and happy to help with any questions you have about your Saiga. Shannon
  6. Yes I'm definitely still at it and currently turning out some of the best work I've done. Sorry for my absence from the boards and my facebook biz page... there's been good reasons. There was a huge backlog, some of which were jobs pauly didn't finish that are still filtering through here. There were also a few very serious issues at home last year, on top of an already full workload, which cost me dearly in available shop time and ability to focus. Of course the worst thing was the fact my former girlfriend of 9 years, business partner here at Cobra's Custom, best friend, and forum member Racegal20...(Sandi), was diagnosed in Feb with a very aggressive form of esophageal cancer. This hit especially close to home for me since she was my angel who kicked me in the ass every day and made me fight hard enough to survive this exact same cancer over the course of two years in 2009-2010. I was a high stage 3 when we found out I had it.... that's bad. Fighting Squamous Cell head & neck / throat cancer is an extremely painful thing for anyone, and agonizing to see a loved one go through. It takes everything from you and your loved ones. Sandi gave it her best through Dec and that's a lot. She was always the toughest woman I've ever met. Still...her cancer was pure evil and on the 10th of Dec we lost her. It was a couple of months before I could even function again. I am still trying my best to be there for her parents and three boys who are going through hell. Guys I would not even dare take an irreplaceable gun part to a bench grinder without being completely focused....ever... We also got hit last year with Hurricane Matthew right in my back yard. Huge oaks down all over the property, massive 100 year flooding (I live on a flood plain), multiple vehicles under water, no power for weeks...shop totally out of commission for a spell with months of cleanup... I did still do my best and get as many jobs as I could done when able, but the backlog was large and has been hard to get back down. I want to assure everyone who needs work done though, (and of course those still waiting...) it's back now to a reasonable level now and completed jobs are going out the door regularly again. I shipped out 4 over the past two days in fact, some of which are being delivered as I'm typing this. Also my policy is to get a good bit of the work done on every job very soon after it comes in the door, so finishing up jobs already half done and doing it assembly line style does take less time. It is my goal to completely clear out all jobs currently in house (12) by the end of this month. After that the wait times will be much less... like back to 2-4 weeks again like it used to be. To everyone who has been waiting a long time to get your parts back I humbly apologize, I certainly did not expect things to go the way they have over the past year and I'm sorry you were forced to wait so long. I'm back in full force now and It won't ever get that way again. You guys be on the lookout for tracking numbers. Looking forward to rocking 2017 with some new offerings as well so stay tuned. Will try to get back to having time to post pics when I can. I haven't had spare time to do any posting and have been wanting to post an update on what's going on for awhile. I'll more than likely copy this post to an update on my vendor pages to make good use of time. My welder is on the way here soon for us to knock out 4 custom charging handle jobs so that will have to be later. Ya'll have a great weekend and anyone wanting to inquire about work please email me at cobrascustom@yahoo.
  7. I really appreciate it guys. I'm sorry I've not been back here yet to respond, I haven't done much of anything at home even til yesterday...these past days have been extremely hard. We all really thought she would be able to kick that shit in the teeth the same way she helped me do, and same way she did every other thing that came up against her, her whole life. She was actually making progress and we thought after she had to have the trach tube surgery (something she has been firmly against ever having to live with and this going back many years as a smoker...) that things would turn around. It was just an extremely aggressive and progressive cancer though and no matter how hard she fought, or how much support we all tried to give her,,, her poor little body just could not go any more. I'll spare y'all the details of the past few weeks and just how bad things got but it was excruciating for Sandi and for all of us too having to see her hurting so bad. Hell she was my whole world and since this began in Feb I've been a total wreck. Been trying like hell the whole time to keep positive, help her and the family, and keep up with my work and responsibilities in my own life too. That's been nearly impossible, not just because of how close we are and how much I care for her and her family, but because we both went through all this shit together already with my suffering, the cancer treatments, and especially the long fight and recovery period that followed. It saved my own life but ended up costing us both dearly...and quite alot. Never has losing someone close been quite like this one though. Thank each and every one of you for the support and kind words. She loved you guys and when we met she openly embraced and thoroughly enjoyed all the time I used to put into this site. It was her that pushed me and gave me the confidence originally to actually try and make a business out of my enjoyment modifying and improving the platform. The work she did organizing how everything would then be handled and all the office and shipping... well I can never thank her for that enough. Part of her will still always be here though in that way as well. Still gonna put some good pics of her up here I just haven't finished searching hard drives and putting them in new files yet. Her immediate and extended family can't wait to get all I want to share. Not only was she a great mother of three boys, but was also "Mom" to most all their childhood friends. Their house was always grand central for everything from birthday and family gatherings to Nascar and football. Her wishes were to be cremated and instead of a regular formal service we are planning a celebration of her life next month out at her Mom & Dad's place. Things have been especially hard for them as well of course. No parent can bare to see their children suffer and having to bury them is unthinkable. She only had one brother, he and I shared the same birthday. They all had to suffer through losing him already. It's so sad. Thank you all again and I will return to post some happy stuff next time, I taught her everything she knew about firearms and that girl was totally amazing with them straight out of the gate. Many many great memories seeing her progress. She was a natural especially with a pistol. For now here is one pic of her firing my S-12 on her very first day shooting, 2007 and I remember it like it was yesterday... She shot my S-410 first and wanted to just skip right past the S-20 to get to the 12's! That's my girl!!
  8. Thanks for the kind words Squeaky Sandi will be sorely missed by so many people. Family's really struggling still to come to grips and every holiday from now own is going to be rough for sure. I surely understand what you're saying about seeing it all from the other side man. I can't even imagine what that has to be like all the time but especially over the holidays. Thank you for all the work you do and the good you guys all do.
  9. Hey guys. It is with very heavy heart I come to share the news that one of our older members, my best friend, business partner here, and my former everything, has lost her intense battle with the evil cancer she's been fighting tooth and nail since she was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma in Feb of 2015. In 2009 I was diagnosed with the exact same thing at a high stage 3 level. In my throat the same as her... Through her strength, courage and help along with some of the best doctors and modern medicine, I was luckily able to win my long battle. There's a long thread about it somewhere on here. The outpouring of support we got from our gun buddies here was awesome and so appreciated. She really loved participating as a member here and made lots of friends she continued to follow and keep up with later in life and on facebook. Sandi hasn't been active here for a couple years but used to be quite active with thousands of posts all over the forum. http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?/user/5613-racegal20/ Just thought I'd come in and make a post about it for all you who knew her and used to talk with her on the forum. She went peacefully in her sleep at 12:15 AM yesterday, 12/1016. She will be greatly missed. . .I may come back to post some pics but til then, everyone stay safe out there and try to have a Merry Christmas.
  10. Looks awesome man! Still enjoying turkey breast sammiches here from the one I smoked for Thanksgiving. The Carolina Reapers from the garden really added a nice spice to the flavor the smoke, the apple, and my custom rub imparted. For a smoked bird it was especially aesthetically pleasing I thought lol!
  11. PM sent brother nice hearing back from ya.
  12. Nice work as always Chile! Gotta try this one myself using all fresh venison with my home made venison sausage. Yum. You workin' on that cookbook yet bro? E-books have actually gotten very easy to do I've a buddy with one out.
