  3. I love the idea of using a mid-barrel comp to maximize pressure scavenging, but will the gun still cycle with the regular gas system/gas ports? Does anyone produce a shortened gas system? Or would DI include that in the comp package? Any projected price of the entire kit and caboodle? Thanks!
  4. Wow...it's like prom night. Nice work!
  5. Late reply...I don't make it around the forum enough. I stuffed the 11oz 4"x7/8" into my 20ga and loved it! So then I put one in my S12 too. It does reduce recoil some without the annoying "SPROING" noise of mechanical buffers, but it's not night/day difference in recoil. The main is the improved the weight balance for what starts as a very front heavy gun. However, it is a bitch to make fit, so prepare to spend some time filing out the diameter of your stock hole and pounding the recoil reducer in. Unfortunately, if you pound fairly far but your ID isn't uniform deeper in, you'll have a helluva time getting it back out. So go slowly and check it bit by bit to be sure it's moving deeper while staying snug. As everyone else warned, be careful of how much force you apply to convince it to fit in there--if you break open a tube, you won't be a happy camper. As over-reactive as it sounds, call a Hazmat crew and get it cleaned up right. However, the mercury is encased in solid steel rebar and can take a pounding. I beat the hell out of mine, and though I dented it around the top, I didn't do any damage. Two tricks I learned the hard way: (1) throw your stock in the oven for a bit at 175degrees. It won't be enough to hurt it, but it can move the plastic molecules slightly further apart to make it easier and improve snugness when it cools to room temp; (2) lube your recoil tube up. Also, check the depth of your stock...I think on the Tapco AR stocks it's about 4.5" deep, so if you go with a 5" tube it may stick out when you're at the shortest stock position and that will HURT! But from the picture, your stock adapter looks slightly deeper than the AR, so you may be good to go.

    Atlantic Firearms

    Not to toot their horn too much, but Atlantic runs a tight ship and do really good work--from my experience, they take personal interest to esure each of their orders is successfully completed. One of my orders got lost in transit and someone personally called to answer my inquiry email, then called a week later to make sure that everything was delivered successfully. In a world of slow, impersonal emails and lackluster responses, Atlantic's customer service impressed the hell out of me.

    NY Gun Laws

    I LOVE southern winters. I'm in NC right now, it was about 70 and sunny here too. My friend just got back from NYC today...she said it was cold, bleek, and supposed to snow/sleet.

    NY Gun Laws

    One of my friends is soon moving to NYC and was curious what types of gun-laws were there. Are they super strict? Is concealed carry an option? If so, is it a super-hard option? Thanks for any info!

    NY Gun Laws

    i'm afraid it takes a lot more than a governor. it'd take a paradigm shift. let's just hope the supreme court will lay the groundwork. i'm actually moving to NYC this summer and probably going back after i graduate. bye bye guns.

    NY Gun Laws

    HAHAHA, you rule. I just hope Heller v. District of Columbia comes down in our (2nd Amendment advocates) favor, which may hopefully make gun laws a bit friendlier in places like NY.
  11. I want to get a second, knowledged opinion to be sure I'm not wrong in my interpretation of 18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3),(5), 922((3), and 27 CFR 478.29. I'm a NC resident, working in WV, and I go to school in KY. Can I buy a long-gun in the state of WV? Pursuant to the exceptions listed in 18 USC 922(a)(3) and 27 CFR 478.29 for the sale of long guns and shot guns to non-residents, can't I? As long as I purchase from an FFL, face-to-face, and it conforms to all three state's laws and regulations? (the gun i'm purchasing is legal to buy in NC, KY, and WV) I've fought with every gun-store operator within 25miles, and finally traced the problem to the local atf representative. He's telling everyone that they can't sell guns to non-residents unless they go to school in WV or have a WV state identification. can a non-resident purchase a long-gun? last note--there is no WV law or regulation prohibiting the sale of firearms to non-residents, so it is based entirely on federal law. thanks for any help you can offer!

    Gun Laws Question

    Crap...took me so long to respond, I'm sorry. I had no idea what busy was until this past year and summer. Ugh. Anyway, as mentioned, I can't give legal advice, but after reading the statutes and regulations, my analysis is that it is NOT legal for a non-licensed individual to sell a gun to a non-resident citizen, or to a citizen that the seller had reason to believe was a non-resident. I have reached this conclusion based on the following: 18 USC 922: (a) It shall be unlawful-- (1) for any person-- (A) except a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer, to engage in the business of importing, manufacturing, or dealing in firearms, or in the course of such business to ship, transport, or receive any firearm in interstate or foreign commerce; (3) for any person, other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to transport into or receive in the State where he resides any firearm purchased or otherwise obtained by such person outside that State (5) for any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) to transfer, sell, trade, give, transport, or deliver any firearm to any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) who the transferor knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in the State in which the transferor resides; 27 CFR 478.30: No nonlicensee shall transfer, sell, trade, give, transport, or deliver any firearm to any other nonlicensee, who the transferor knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in the State in which the transferor resides. The statutes and regulations contain numerous exceptions, but the exceptions have been edited because they are inapplicable. I previously listed the phone numbers of the ATF agency in NC, so they may be able to give you more advice than I can, or you may wish to speak with a licensed lawyer who is familiar with 18 USC 922. Goodluck in your decision! Sorry I can't be of more help and that I am the bearer of bad news.

    Gun Laws Question

    When do you need to know by? I'll check on yours. I got hold of the ATF today and they said that I was right on my last query. I can't guarantee I'll be right about yours, but I'll look into it and give you my non-legal advice (I can't give any form of legal advice until I am licensed). But I *think* that you can NOT do a FTF transfer to a non-resident unless you're an FFL. But if you can, it'd have to conform with both states' laws, it could only be for a long gun, and I think you'd need to the atf background-check form filled out. As I say, I'll double check and let you know this weekend if that's not too late. Also, you can call the NC ATF at 704-716-1830 and check with them. You'll also need to check with VA atf, so ask the NC agent for a VA satellite office's number. Goodluck!

    Gun Laws Question

    Both allow it. Thanks! I spoke with both state's ATF agents and got both to admit that it was legal. So now I have to convince my FFL to call the same agents with whom I spoke. But now I'm one step closer.

    6 inch versus 8 inch S-12 (pic)

    remind me not to fuck with that firm...
  16. Well...RI_shotgunner got my S20. He has been super-nice and very patient as I took a while to ship because I was in the process of finishing finals, packing, and moving. My new housemates misplaced the payment he sent, yet he patiently and calmly waited until it turned up. If it had been me I would've been pissing thumb tacks, but he was understanding and polite. So the take-home message is that he paid promptly and he's patient, understanding, and nice. Thank you!!!
  17. 73cj5 got some parts from me. he paid promptly and was polite, patient, and an all-around good buyer. thanks!

  21. (HUD not included) For all the information go to: http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?showtopic=12836 This is my pet-project S20. I think I have it cycling all loads fairly reliably. The last time I shot, it fed 14rnds as fast as I could pull the trigger without an FTE or FTF--but I haven't gotten to confirm 100% reliability because the neighbors were beyond pissed at me. It was made to be a gun for sport/competition because it kicks a lot less than a 12ga, and there's enough magazine selection to go from 2+1rnds at the trap range/hunting, to 15rnds for those open-class stages in tactical competitions. The polychoke will let you go from X-tra full for the long shot to Xtra open to shoot quick from the hip. It's basically made to be a fun-to-shoot toy that allows gals and kids to join at the range as much as it allows for low-recoil/high capacity competitions. It's not Tromix quality, as I'm not a master at conversions, but it's still nice. With some refinishing, it likely could pass most gun-snobs standards--but it's made to be shot, not to be displayed.

    67 Million dollar pants...

    The judge in the case is considering sanctioning him for failure of good faith and fair dealings and malicious prosecution. He embodies everything that's wrong in this world. The cleaners offered $13,000 for a pair of pants (as settlement), and he refused it!!!! I hope karma gives that guy his due.

    Is there any word from C&S if they plan to produce the adjustable gas setting? I think it precludes the use of Jammer's C-more mount, but I'm not sure. A low, forward mount optic is tempting, but gas adjustability is too...
