    Citadel RS-S1

    Haven't had my hands on one, but from the photos it looks like a clone of the Saiga Version 030, rather than a direct Vepr 12 clone. Trunnions are Saiga AK type rather than Vepr RPK. Furniture looks like it would swap out directly with an IZ-433 or Version 030. Many Vepr 12 parts will swap into the Version 030/IZ-433 with (bolt, carrier, safety, piston, LRBHO lever, and LRBHO parts assembly), although Molot went through great pains to make sure that its dust cover was just narrow enough to make using an unmodified Saiga 030 carrier impractical. Legacy states that the gun will accept 922(r) compliant parts off the shelf, which is positive. However, I would recommend that forum members check with CSS before buying Vepr specific aftermarket receiver blocks, and quad rails for this gun. At the very least, you will need a Vepr 12 RPK type lower hand guard bracket to use standard Vepr 12 or RPK type handguards and rails. Looking forward to tearing one of these down, and getting a first hand look under the hood. Mike

    Kalashnikov USA finally shipping Saiga 12

    So far, every KS-12 I've worked with has been top notch. I've got one with several thousand rounds through it at this point, and the gun runs beautifully. Still very impressed.

    Looks like the hammer's been profiled. Other than that, looks pretty standard. I'm curious about what if any other work has been done to the gun, As for the rear trunnion, I've seen this before on a Saiga that came in with the rear trunnion which had been run with several cases of 3" magnum shells on gas setting #2. We just replaced the rear trunnion, and educated the customer with regard to proper gas system settings. As far as I know that took care of the problem.

  5. Just means other retailers will make up the difference and profit from the opportunity, manufacturer orders will increase to meet demand, and consumers will get newer generation guns from vendors who actually give a shit about their business. How's that for Win/ Win/ Win?

    Personally, I hope we are using every tool at our disposal - with absolutely no holds barred. Obama's 'window dressing' efforts to appear to deal with terrorists from a distance failed miserably, and created the conditions for ISIS to organize and flourish. Appearances be damned. We have work to do. It is more about actually getting the target, and not providing anything to be used as propaganda. Drone bombings over the last few years often missed their targets, people would be marked as having been eliminated when it was some nobody that got killed.. I think at least a few of the high value ISIS guys that had been "confirmed killed" turned up alive and well months later. Obama was the most inept, ineffective, and downright incompetent leader we've had since Jimmy Carter (and possibly ever) and that is saying something. The man completely fucked up everything he touched - from race relations, for which he completely and single handedly destroyed 60 years of progress, to gutting local, and state law enforcement agencies, to his handling of the Middle East, North Africa, Iran, China, and North Korea. As a nation and the leading world power, we have never had the luxury of simply operating within the context of 'propaganda victories'. That strategy has always failed, and will always continue to fail. I agree that we need to make every strike, every action count. The message we as a nation need to send is that if you are a terrorist, a jihadi, or support those activities in any way, you are never safe, anywhere. We will identify you, we will find you, and we will take you out, by any means necessary. Let the chips fall where they may.

  11. Hope you are having a great 48th!
  12. Your question makes an assumption that there is no interest in Russian Kalashnikov pattern shotguns. Respectfully, that simply isn't true. In fact, we are finding quite the opposite to be true. There is still tremendous interest in the platform. Unfortunately, since the bans, supply is the bottleneck. Scarcity and rising prices for existing stock put the base guns (when you can find them) out of reach for many consumers who would love to own a Russian AK shotgun. There are plenty of Chinese clones floating around, but these will cost the average consumer $600 or more with tax, shipping, and FFL transfer fees. Honesty, there just doesn't seem to be much consumer appetite for Chicom copies which cost about as much as the original went for before the bans. With no end in sight for the existing bans, and tariffs likely to drive up the price of the Chicom clones, the one bright spot seems to be Kalashnikov USA's excellent S12 clones. Now, if they'd only make one in a Version 030 configuration, with an adjustable gas block....

    The fact that four deputies hid while children were being slaughtered is gut wrenching. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” JFK - quoting Edmund Burke
  15. Actually, he could pretty much do nothing about that issue and divert the attention to something else. He does it all the time. It works when he does that. He just doesn't have any conservative ideology. He's a big idea guy, and a power guy, and a poke the other guys in the eye guy. We all knew it, but some of us wanted to kid ourselves about it, because for the last 2 years he was mostly poking guys we didn't like in the eye. (Never mind the rest of his life...) The fact that hillary is worse never made him trustworthy. Well, this ^^^ Early on, when Dagen McDowell was asked to comment on Trump's run for President, Chris Christie was his (then) VP Pick. Dagen quoted her mother to the effect that "we dont need two finger pointin' yankees in the White House". We didn't get two, but we did get one.
