  1. You'll have to try a couple different brands on to see how they are cut and what fits you. I wear "loggers" and absolutely can't stand Carolinas, but Red Wings do alright. I wore Georgia boots when I worked for the gooberment, I wouldn't recommend them as the leather got thin quick. Downside is Red Wing makes almost everything in China now. For "hunting boots" I tried Rockys, which leaked quickly. I'm now running a pair of Muck brand with the maximum amount of insulation I could find. I also have a pair of Muck "Express Cool" pair for around the farm. They haven't leaked yet. I al
  2. I feel like I just saw that Federal got a new government contract recently. Nothing like adding fuel to the fire
  3. Did you chop the barrel and thread it yourself or did it come threaded?
  4. I've forgotten about those "Metro" barrel extensions. Well that will be another rabbit hole of "strange shotgun stuff", hopefully another 12 gauge doesn't follow me home just to get an extension for.
  5. I got into launching big chunks of soft lead out of a .450 Bushmaster. 300 grain, powder coated ran through the suppressor knocked a whitetail down with almost no report using Unique powder. I'd like to experiment with using Trail Boss instead because I think I can get a more consistent load. The .40 cal casings make great 275 grain hollow points. 10mm are bigger 350-375 grain hollow points, but swaging them down we broke a RCBS Rockchucker. So we probably won't be going that heavy again. The 275s won't drop as fast as the 350s but I'm a sucker for throwing bigger boulders when p
  6. you could measure the tab on the magazine that fits and compare it to the ones that don't. There has a fair amount of variation with mag catch lengths with the Russian guns. MD Arms had some pretty good instructions out there for his MD20 mags.
  7. So...other than driving up to Bloomsburg, where ya finding them? Also have you fired them out of anything short?
  8. Dude I completely forgot about that circus. Thanks for bringing that memory back up. Glad to see you're still down there and kicking
  9. A "converted" S-12 is similar but not exactly the same. The AK hammer has a wider tube where the pin rides through. Mostly for the manual bolt hold open to function. The AK trigger group will work, just need to be prepared to do some fitting. If you want one done up for a drop in there are vendors who sell them. A "sporter" S-12 is well...different, and goofy.
  10. So are the two "bottom" bolts large enough to catch the on either side of the rail to prevent movement from recoil? Other idea is the bolts "tighten" the mount onto the rail, but that seems like a bad idea/won't work. The top two bolts are confusing me since it looks backwards.

    Lynx 12

    Cadiz gun works did an underfolder conversion on a Saiga-12 years ago. The recoil was described as "brutal" if I remember correctly. Cobra did a polymer block external and slipped it on one of his as well. I can't recall much beyond that it couldn't open/ close over magazines. I put a similar polymer external block on my 7.62x39 without changing out the rear trunnion. It has the classic underfolder wobble, but if I get tired of it I can still go back to a fixed stock or folder.
  12. It has been pretty quiet. Not like the hey day with the new people asking the same questions every week. I miss the earlier days when we were modding parts out of whatever we could. Not saying the guys who spun up to make parts didn't do an awesome job. Just seemed like a tighter community of people who tinker. The import ban basically killed the tinkering/modding so there isn't too much traffic.
  13. Reading the description on the JTS M12, it was built on the RPK receiver. That is a 1.5mm receiver, so it would be closer to the VEPR not the Saiga-12 which is on the 1.0mm receiver. /sarcasm on now where's my flamethrower....

    Best Mags

    The AGPs are the closest you can get to the Russian 8's. If you prefer to go to a metal magazine look up CSS spec. I've used them both and I'm quite happy with them.
