    K-USA non nfa s-12!!

    Slightly off topic, but the thread took a few turns and evl and mike are involved-do you think it's a fair statement that it's better to regulate how much gas is flowing through the port vs bleeding pressure off after the fact (taken from a discussion over on the AK files PSL, but should be a cross over to the shotgun platform). And second, since you guys brought up AK pistol calibers, is there any advantage or innovation that a AK blow back has over an AR blow back or any other blow back design? Just a little curious as to what the take on this forum is.
  2. WTB a original (1st design) Chaos Saiga 12 Tri Rail. Contact Mark killerbombo@aim.com
  3. I'm just going to throw this out there, because the term "this forum always" and the other thread about old members checking in. It's the general discussion forum here, and pretty much any forum that seems to be a the place to bicker. The shotgun and rifle sections were always, and continue to be a place to help other members work through issues. Since the imports are gone and several companies have stepped up with aftermarket support there's really not as much gun related stuff to talk about, so people generally show up in, well, the General section to fuck off and play. When forum traffic was heavier, and more moderated, stuff like this would have just got kicked downstairs to the "I want in" sections and let boys be boys. Boba, the only thing negative I could think that you did (and I might be wrong but I'm not going to waste time searching for stuff) is that I thought you had a habit of posting things like 'hey, look what I'm building or bought" and not too long after it became "hey, look what I have for sale. The what are my two guns worth has that smell to it. Ben gets beat up on all the time, and trueth be known, that guy really put a lot of time and heart into this place from the very beginning. Sometimes you either need to be very thick skinned, or very quick witted on any forum if you want to play in the general sections. I don't know why that is, but it seems to be a thing. Oh snap, I just looked over at the the reputation rating and I'm "666", I must be the devil.
  4. Thanks for the "Dirty Money" Nexflix reference. I watched the VW segment and the two following it. It's a very well thought out and educational show...made me want to punch a few people through the TV on the Payday loan episode. Not a bunch of VW's in the fleet, but my German buddy in the bay on the other side owned a Jetta TDI wagon when all the diesel gate stuff hit. I never knew the half of it. Man, he took me on some rides in that thing like we were on the Autobahn. Being originally East German he now owns a Mercedes C300 that VW helped fund. He loves to beat on U.S. cars so I love to push his buttons that my big ass Taurus SHO has more options and he won't run me. If he ever moves up to a AMG I'm going to up my game with a methanol tune. Then again, my GTDI engine only averages 22mpg. Enjoy the new ride, if you put a tune on it, that thing should fly.
  5. So let me get this right. You bought not one, but two rifles that seems to be your norm, you have nearly 2000 post on THIS forum, and YOU don't know what YOUR OWN rifles are worth....who's the real dumb fuck. Why not just refer to the membership as deplorables jackass.
  6. Hard to believe at some point they won't be back. Takita made shit airbags (safety recall) for millions of vehicles and hardly a whisper, VW plays with emissions just a bit and got hammered. Completely unrelated but damn funny, the guy in the bay next to mine called me over to look at a scan tool reading on 2017 VW Turbo Gasoline Bug about a month ago. It set a emissions leak detected P0455 code at 145 mph. First, 145 mph in a bug is just crazy, and second, I can't believe it ran the test at that speed but it logged it in freeze frame.
  7. For the most part, events on the forum in the past should stay in the past, we've all moved on to better things. Time's were definitely different, we live in a much more friendly gun environment despite liberal attempts to take advantage of every crisis. Remember that in November.
  8. I can't comment on the older models, but today if you want mileage and horsepower VW turbo diesel's are hard to beat. I really don't know why anyone would give electric cars a second look with these around. Turbo's just give everything a little more excitement. Pretty fun to put your foot in it isn't it!
  9. Cameron can explain things better than I can remember, but I think initially he was looked at as some type of AA mole account. He had to fight a pretty harsh crowd at first to prove himself, but in the end his integrity and skill as a machinist proved itself. Hell, besides the daily battle with AA, Mike Davidson was initially beat on because of the fear that a 20 round drum was going to put the Saiga 12 in DD territory.
  10. Nobody's dirt napped me yet, mostly lurk these days to see what guys are turning out. If you ever want to have some fun, start searching ancient posts. After the sunset of the AWB I found the platform and this place. I was drawn in by conversions that Shannon and Dinzag had done. Bvamp was probably the only mod at the time and was fond of killing snow men, not cleaning his shotgun, and trading punches with a jackass named McUzi. Good times! Maybe one day The U.S. and Russia will kiss and make up and allow trade to resume, although supply has always been sketchy through the year. And drama, oh yes the drama. We managed to run off AGP, Red Jacket used to be a no name good guy, the drum mag wars with Mike D and another jackass that owned AA. Cameron (Chaos) got the shit kicked out of him when he first came on the scene for no good reason and had integrity to hang in there and build his business, Tony Rumore built a huge following around this platform and has since stepped back due to dwindling supply leaving Lonestar and Evl to fill the void for quality builders. Last, I'll leave you with the crazy old mofo from the past who's name escapes me for one of the most entertaining picture threads I ever ran across years ago. Azrial, if you still have the same profession, watch your 6 and keep the bad guys at bay. Thanks for posting this, I'd like to see who else checks in.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    I haven't been on the forum for a bit, so I'm late to the party, But give the XS Big Dot HK sight set a close look since you already have the Tromix mounted HK sights. The rear is a much improved peep style that mounts to the HK base and the front is..well Big Dot tritium. Fast, compact, light, and no batteries. https://www.xssights.com/Products.aspx?CAT=8511

    Excellent!

    The Mossad has been doing it for years. Eliminate the problem and their whole family tree. It's like using Round Up on weeds.
  13. ^^^ That's how Chicago comes off looking better than smaller cities. Below is a great break down that I always enjoy... https://heyjackass.com/

    Happy Birthday Makc!

    Belated Happy Birthday Makc..thanks for building us this playground. Cheers
  15. Before the ban expired, at $200 you couldn't give a Saiga away and for years the only product support came in the form of Dinzag ,Tony, and anything you could fab up in your garage at home. Russian Krink kits would have been a good investment. I built a Yugo M92 at a fairly steep price only to have Serbia release it's clones at a bargain basement price a few years later.
  16. ^^^What Mike said. I jumped on the bandwagon when the Clinton AWB expired and we were able to put a pistol grip back on these once $200 shotguns. Back then it was pretty much the only choice for a box fed shotgun, now the tides have turned. My interest is still there if they ever start letting them back in the country. If I knew then what I know now, I wouldn't have built so many kits from other countries and would have stacked boxes of Saiga's high.
  17. I just find it amazing that someone who came here as a tree trimmer has accomplished things multiple times that the major firearm manufacturers couldn't on their own. By definition, "Just living the Amer I CAN dream"...

    Safes

    Point taken Chile, "cheapest" was probably a poor choice of words, There are plenty of good safes in the $900-2000 range in my mind that will keep curious kids and the typical break in crack head out. I'm also looking at things through the eyes of someone living in suburbia with neighbors in close proximity. For those out in the country I can see this being a whole different situation. The other thing is "how much is your investment worth", or in a worse case scenario, the life of your kids or our gun rights. Unfortunately, far too many think keeping there gun tucked away in their underwear drawer is a safe place.
  19. I always enjoyed a show called "Seconds from Disaster". The jist is that in almost every case, it was a series of events, not one single item that lead to the particular event being investigated. I wish there was a show that used the same approach to shooting sprees/mass casualty events. The first thing anti gunners want to do is ban, I'm thinking most of these events, just like plane crashes are caused by a series of failures in the system that need to come to light. Unfortunately, I doubt there's anyone out there with the integrity to take an un-bias look at the facts that leads to the mass casualty events that the media feeds on.

    What is your favorite Saiga 12 build ever?

    I'm thinking it's a toss up between Evl and Mike. Both of you seem to have a great understanding and put out quality work. Tony is probably the Goodfather of all that is today.

    Safes

    Look at fire ratings and don't advertise what you own. No bumper stickers, no casual conversations about how many guns you own or what kind of safe you have. There's no reason for someone to break into your house with tools to defeat a safe unless they have a specific reason and are planning on spending an inordinate amount of time trying to get inside. Liberty will do fine to keep 99% of threats out (I pulled that number out of my ass, but you get the point). Even the cheapest of safes is better than nothing.
  22. My fear is when the next spray and pray jackass discovers a binary/Digi Trigger It's not going to be good.
  23. It kind of makes you wonder doesn't it. ATF, the usual bad guys, have signed off on blade stocks, bump stocks, digital/binary triggers over the last few years. All of which pretty much circumvent NFA SBR/FA restrictions that allow them to collect tax stamp money. Is this all leading up to something bigger on the horizon? They were all approved by their own definitions, but it is kind of mind blowing in the scheme of things.
  24. On a completely different note, I found myself challenged by a BMW on a completely empty road on a 18 degree afternoon. My Ecobeast SHO was happy happy happy as it passed him well into the triple digits and still pulling strong. I haven't been that stupid in about 25 years but it was fun. Cold dense air+ turbo charged engines=a noticeable increase in power. See, cold isn't always bad.
  25. Slightly off topic, but my heavy barrel 10/22 is remarkably quiet just using sub sonic .22's. Most of the suppressed pistols I've been around still have a clacky action noise to deal with. I'd really like to shoot a bolt or lever action just to see what level of quiet is really achievable,
