  1. My contest entry from a few years back...
  2. I'd be interested in a sanely priced belt fed system for ARs and AKs. Be a fun conversion for the AES-10B. Probably not personally as interested in a 12ga version, but that's just me!
  3. What rear sight setups would be compatible with the deluxe tall version?
  4. Hey guys. A couple different companies sell AK-style AK front sights for AKs, some of which seem to be taller than the factory front sight the gas block. I'm planning on SBRing my S12 to 10" and I'd like to run such a front sight. The question is, what are the rear sight options worth considering for these "tall" front sights? I presume something rail-mounted would be too tall, but without buying/trying, it's hard to say. Most retailers selling these are short on compatibility details...
  5. JC, just make them! Plenty of S12s and compatible guns out there. I'd prolly buy $500+ of them myself.
  6. New Saiga's may not be coming in, but DDIs and the eventual Chaos shotty are. I don't think the S12 is dead. There's certainly a large installed user base, almost all of which would kill for a double stack.
  7. If the design works, he's throwing away $$$ by not licensing the design out to one of the manufacturers. With the right agreement he could make good money from his design. Honestly i don't care how they come to market, so long as they DO come to market...
  8. I'm fine with F/O for a front sight, I just don't like my front sight mounted half way down the bbl. I also don't think of AR stocks as collapsing... more like slightly adjustable for LOP. you are dead on that no gun satisfies everyone. I'd like to get one of these guns, they just don't appear to be perfect in stock form. Speaking of which, I'm really not sure what I'd do with the stock. I'd never put an AR stock on there, that's offensive to my sensibilities. Prolly keep it stock or figure out a way to convert it to AK style... probably at great expense. Meh.
  9. I'm interested. I LOVE the safety, rear sight, and LH charging. IMO all semi auto long guns should be LH charging. The STG 44 was LHC for a reason. I'm not biased against China. They can make things there...the question is just what the QC is like. If you can make iphones, smart TVs, xbox ones, split the atom, and launch people into space, you can make guns just fine. The question is, will they? What I don't like is the stock set up or the front sight. I'd much rather see a front sight set up like a normal AK for max sight radius. On the stock front, it's horrible design to use a buffer-tu
  10. Potentially dumb question: would these work in combo with the H&K style rear sight from a chaos rail system? Or are they yoo differeny in height? I'd like to maximize my sight radius and add to the "AK look" of a FSB type set up...
  11. I've never shot my S12 with a 5 or 8 round mag. 10s and 12s only...so that's what I am "used to". my vote remains the same: a mag no longer than the 10 rounder, whatever the resulting capacity is.
  12. I wouldn't worry about the aftermarket. Look at cars. You can still find newly manufactured parts for muscle cars from the 60s and 70s. There aren't that many of these cars left on the road, but the demand is there and as a result the manufacturers are also. We should be fine. Obama will just cost us more money, which is his standard MO.
  13. make a mount that is S12 compatible and let the bird absorb all the recoil. Problem solved!
  14. I'd rather he be slaving away in the shop to get shit done than spending all day trolling the introwebs.
  15. I've heard good things, and I'm sure these are great mags, 8 rounds just isn't enough for me to be interested when 10 rounders have been around forever.
  16. Don't like them on most guns. That said, if the gun has significant recoil, then I kind of do like them. Helps me reacquire sight picture faster when dumping 3" slugs on my S12.
  17. maybe, but let's get some evil black ones on the market and worry about pretty colored ones, and ridiculously long comp-shooters-only ones later.
  18. exactly...inconclusive. In some of the ammo types, the no-brake was superior to a brake...and the control wasn't even an effective control. A better control would be to hang a weight on the end of the bbl, identical to the weight of each brake. You're trying to find out if the brake is effective at reducing the vertical rise of the bbl....as opposed to trying to prove that hanging a weight on the end of the bbl will do the same. If a brake would make a significant difference, I'd cut my bbl down some and perma install one. I'd like proof before I make the effort though. Being as low pressure a
  19. I love me some muzzle devices, but I am highly skeptical of their utility for either controlling recoil or suppressing flash in a 12g with a 19" bbl. Could be wrong, but the factory thread protector is free...and short.
  20. The single stack 12 is to long....along with several other people here, my vote for DS capacity is "whatever will fit an not be any longer than the AGP 10 rounders." Something in the 14-16 round range is awesome, and good competition for the recent pump action dual-tube guns like the KSG and UTS. With these DS mags we get just as many rounds but much faster reloading. Winning.
  21. Best news since my wife said "yes". Take my money dood!!!
  22. coming up on the 4 year anniversary of 'the tease'!
  23. at this point I just don't see it happening. If MD doesn't want to make them, I have no idea why he doesn't sell the design or license it or something. We need to flood the market before any potential ban is passed. License someone to make them and demand $5 per mag royalties or something and call it good. Might as well get some $ out of all the design work. Alternatively, we could let the Obamunists win.
  24. if you're following the thread MD, this AWB ain't gonna happen. They don't even have the votes in the Senate....but that doesn't mean they won't after the 2014 election. What I'd like to see is preorders for doublestack S12 mags made available. Just make one kind....preferably something in the 16-round range...and make as many mags as you can between now and whenever the bans come down (if ever). They will all sell. Doesn't really matter how many you make. Even if you had 100,000 unsold mags the day the ban came down, so long as they were grandfathered in, you'd sell every single one of
