  1. Nice work but looks really out of place on the otherwise all black gun. If you're targeting the AK market, you'll do better with high quality matched furniture sets, grip, and upper and lower hand guard as a matched set.
  2. That was a "Titan" rail made by CHAOS, and had to be specially modified for the .410. I don't think they're being made anymore. I've looked high and low and can't find one in stock anywhere.
  3. Lone Star Arms needs handguards to fill ongoing orders! Do you have factory Saiga 12, Lynx 12, or Cheetah 12 factory hand guards laying around? Lone Star Arms will trade new condition Kalashnikov USA take off hand guards in exchange for factory Saiga 12, Lynx 12, and Cheetah 12 hand guards. Here's the deal... Send us your Saiga 12, Lynx 12, or Cheetah 12 factory handguards, and we'll send you an essentially new condition Kalashnikov USA factory hand guard in return. The hand guards we're offering are top quality hand guards, embedded with threaded steel receptacles for Kalashnikov

  5. Sold! I'll take it in a heartbeat. Please call me to make arrangements.
  6. Had a KS-12 in the shop with receiver/carrier alignment issues, and although the fit and finish is generally much better than the Russian export models, KS-12s clearly aren't immune to these issues. Lynx seems to attempt to address cycling issues with generally weaker springs, a blackjack type recoil buffer at the rear of the receiver, and a couple of extra gas settings. Once again it looks like yet another manufacturer is applying band-aids and Appalachian engineering to address problems inherent in the engineering and assembly issues copied from the originals. Receiver alignm
  7. "ive had -2-3 russian shotguns over the years that would run birdshot without futziing around. i shoulda kept 2 of them. they were just so buttery smooth! and light recoiling. not sure what made those guns so perfect. i guess they were just perfectly in sync". So true! The biggest issue with Russian shotguns and their many recent clones has always been that the way the parts fit and work together in the real world is often very different than the workings the engineers envisioned when they designed these guns. What is baffling is that with nearly every clone produced, regard
  8. All of the parts on the KS-12s I've worked on have been top notch US Made parts. In many cases machined from bar stock, where Russian parts are cast/forged. Have swapped in Russian Bolts and Carriers to test compatibility with KS-12s and vice versa, and its always 100%.
  9. "I was running 2.75 dram loads reliably in stick mags and 3 dram bulk pack loads in MD-20 drums. These things are winners right out of the box." Have rebuilt a number of these guns, and so far I've seen one KS-12 that ran this way out of the box. My advice to the owner was to leave it just as it is mechanically, and enjoy it. Right out of the gate, Kalashnikov USA guns have been head and shoulders above their Russian siblings in terms of build quality and performance, and K-USA appears to be continuously striving to improve the quality performance of the guns.. Still love the R
  10. "Do any of yall run recoil buffers on your rigs/do you recommend them?" We don't usually install them unless a customer specifically requests it, and this is exceedingly rare. Black Jack buffers are primarily sold as a recoil reducer, and for that purpose they aren't effective at all. What they are effective for is preventing your bolt carrier from hammering and deforming your rear trunnion. If your gun is tuned properly for the ammo you're shooting, you probably don't need one.
