  1. https://phobia.fandom.com/wiki/Dropbearphobia They do seem to have the potential to be slightly more terrifying than "cuddly"
  2. I mean that is likely the best way to do it. There is a fella on Gunbroker now selling one of Tony's SBS guns trying to find where the price point is.
  3. For the folding stock are you planning on doing the AK 100 series side folder ? https://atlanticfirearms.com/ak-100-series-side-folding-polymer-stock-assembly-plum-us Or are you thinking more of an ACE style ? folder https://palmettostatearmory.com/ace-ak-folding-stock-mechanism-with-boss-black-a500-k.html https://www.carolinashooterssupply.com/ACE-MPX-AKFX-Rail-Skeleton-Stock-p/ace-mpx-stock.htm Also if you go down to 12" you'll likely have to do gas block/ port work to run reliably.
  4. For anyone else who goes this route be prepared that the K-USA barrel is not chrome lined and the gas ports are drilled. The two cross pins for the gas block and the barrel pin in the trunion is not drilled. It's not the end of the world by any means but you have to stop and think a bit before pressing the barrel home.
  5. Ya know I always seem to forget that they sell spare parts. That barrel seems like a cheaper way out instead of paying someone to tig it up and the drill bits I may or may not destroy in the process. Thanks for the recommendation
  6. So I went and won a Saiga-12 on Gunjoker. It had a fair amount of mall ninja crap attached to it but nothing looked irreversible. Once I got it home I pulled the gas puck out to clean it. Dropping the gas regulator out I became worried as the chunks of gunk were pretty large. Getting more light on the subject revealed that some folks shouldn't be allowed near power tools. This is a 19" barrel so I'm assuming it was the three holes in a triangle pattern. Looks like someone went hog wild on enlarging the port. Took it out today, barely ran birdshot. It didn't choke on 00 buck on s
  7. Well, if you want we can start debating about when the Saiga-12 becomes a destructive device again. Or get Makc to unban McUzi, if he hasn't been incarcerated yet
  8. I mean, it's Bueller.....but if I correct you too much I'm liable to get banned. Or at least harassed for wise assery.
  9. So the camo ones didn't get imported by any other importer except EAA. The green was far and away the most common one. There is a brown camo that looks like fake wood as well. Overall they weren't as popular as most folks were not using Saiga-12s for hunting. When I found mine I paid $100 over the cost of the black ones. The last listing I found. https://www.guns.com/firearms/shotguns/semi-auto/saiga-saiga-12-12-ga-semi-automatic-20-rounds-20-barrel-used?p=877155&soldout=1 So really there are just so few of them it's hard to best guess what sort of price they would bring
  10. Is it a green or one of the two brown camo patterns? Do you have the matching 5 round magazine to go with it?
  11. You would need a .308 front trunion , barrel, gas tube, bolt, bolt carrier and different magazines. It would be easier to source a .308 than to find all the parts and then a competent enough gunsmith to basically build the .308.
  12. I haven't used any of the new Kalashnikov mags. Personally I stocked up on AGPs , some CSSpecs and picked up some Russian 8s that Kvar has has on Gunbroker right now. Centerfire Systems has some SDS Lynx 10 round mags for $29 a pop now. Probably won't find anything cheaper in that capacity. The forum has been pretty slow since the importation of the Saigas stopped.
  13. Romanian PAR 1 , PAR 2 or PAR 3. I think it depends on the caliber for the number. Sort of an odd duck since the pump manually cycles the action instead of gas being bled off from the barrel. I don't recall seeing the rear sight on the dust cover. I think the idea was an AK for "ban states". So it's the red headed stepchild of the WASR family.
  14. https://centerfiresystems.com/product/factory-saiga-12ga-2rd-mag-iz-222#product_detail Used to be rarer than hen's teeth. you can also cut down some other brands ( AGP, SGM)
