  1. Thanks for the offer on the scope mount but I did some more research and found a 5th gen mount. the biggest difference is the lever mount feature which allows quick mount/dismount o the mount and scope. I have also purchased a holographic red dot scope. If the mount and scope work to my satisfaction then to hell with the raised front sight. Maybe I can luck up on a muzzle break at some point in the future.
  2. I have been checking the e-store regularly since last October and the raised sight/muzzle break for the Saiga-12 remains out of stock. Can someone tell me when these might be in stock? Also can any one tell me where to get a side scope mount?
  3. I found a similar grip and light holder on Sportsman's Guide for ~$69 (a little less if you are a club member).
  4. Thanks for the helpful hints. I agree that I need to use the lowest gas setting. How to set mine is the problem. The manual that came with my Saiga-12 clearly states that "Position 2 is for Magnum, heavy loads. Position 1 is for non Magnum loads." This seems to be the reverse of what everyone says in the forum. Any ideas how to clear this confusion up? If I understand correctly, I can depress the locking detent and turn the gas nut clockwise until it will no longer move. This should be all the way in closing off most, if not all the gas. Then rotate the gas nut counter clockwise to the first number be it #1 or #2 and this should be the lowest gas setting. Agreed? Also regarding sight adjustment, do I move the rear sight to the right (if looking from the rear of the gun) to move the shot pattern to the left?
  5. I am new to the forum having just purchased a Saiga-12 recently. I am a bit confused regarding setting the gas system. The manual that came with my Saiga-12 clearly states that "Position 2 is for Magnum, heavy loads. Position 1 is for non Magnum loads." My Saiga came set on Position 2. This seems ass backwards to what is in the posts. So far I have only put about 10 rds ea of Remington 00BK and Win Ranger 00BK and 20 rds of Win AA Super-Handicap 7.5 shot. All these rds were 2 3/4. All rds cycled with no problems. I have read that having the gas setting wrong can damage the gun, so what is correct? I have upgraded to the TAPCO stock with the SAW grip but still have the stock iron sights. My Saiga is shooting low and right. I have figured out how to adjust the front sight (no thanks to the manual). I have tried all the way up and the pattern is tight but still low. I have not figured out how to adjust left/right. Suggestions?
