    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    I would suggest looking into a Primary Arms RDS with the TRS25 mount pattern. Everything i have read about the new TRS25's says they are junk and not built to the "quality" that the older versions were. They just don't hold up like the old ones did. Bushnell somehow allowed the quality to take a shit, on what was once considered a quality optic for it's price range.

    Yeah, definitely wiping the sweat from my brow about the whole side rail shimming thing.....WHEW! Bad thing is, unless you want to swap uppers again, you're stuck with some slim choices, due to the mounting pattern of that RDS.

    trigger group help

    Nothing. They function the same. A double hook won't fit in an S12 unless you modify it or the receiver to accept it. A double hook can have some potential advantages tho, if you aren't scared to modify it some.
  4. They all have the same drivetrains, whether its Silverado/Sierra/Suburban/Tahoe/Yukon. 4.8's, 5.3's, 6.0's, 6.2's backed by 4l60e's, 4L70e's, 4L80e's, 5L80e's etc. etc. I would stay away from the models with DoD (Displacement on Demand), AKA; cylinder deactivation. They can/may develop lifter and cam shaft problems. If looking at a vehicle with a 6.0, pay close attention to the exhaust manifold bolts at the head. They are very commonly known for breaking off, on the drivers side especially. The all aluminum 5.3's found in '05-'06-'07's with the 8th digit of the VIN a B, are really good motors called L33's, a 325hp, 325ci V8. Figure out your dollar amount and go from there.

    Carry Belt

    SOE (Special Operations Equipment) makes nice stuff but the lead time can be long. They are customizable, with different buckles and stitching. DeSantis makes heavy rigid thick leather carry belts that aren't too terribly expensive.

    Leather or Synthetic? Options are endless.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    I traded a PRO for an RMR so i can give it a try. Debating on trying the AK302M lower so i can swap it over to my 107UR when i want, or just sticking with my old 301. First world problems. Anyone want to buy an RS 30mm upper mount?

    Mag conversion

    Gotcha. I searched a little bit and from the handful of threads I came across in the Vepr forum and AKFiles, no definitive answer about the conversion. But I didn't dig deep. Seems alot went to ban states where the use of standard capacity OG AK mags is a no no.

    Mag conversion

    Standard Saiga mags don't require a bullet guide. They have a feed lip built into the front of them. I think there was a lengthy thread over on the AKFiles about using standard AK mags in the Pioneer and Super.

    You'll be happy with it once it's lined out.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    It wouldn't be if that rear sight wasn't there. My mistake for not taking that into account early on.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    If you are okay with the real estate that your current lower would leave exposed and unused, then just sell or return/exchange your current upper and get the upper that matches the different RDS. You'd be able to put it far enough forward that it would clear the HK sight upon removal. Otherwise yeah, your new plan will work too and look a little cleaner.
  14. Mullet Man

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    None of that matters because if the HK sight was not there, he could quickly, by the use the of a quick throw lever, remove it in a few seconds. Then upon re-installation, it would return to zero. I'm not even gonna address the shimming nonsense that you keep bringing up.
  15. Mullet Man

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    Yeah with that setup that's what you're gonna have to do. With the forward bias of the 301 mount and a 30mm upper, you're able to remove the dust cover with it installed. With that HK sight and super long picatinny upper, you're pretty well fucked for quick removal. Try cheating the RS upper as far forward on the lower as you can. Then try and remove the dust cover.
  16. Mullet Man

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    Oh damn that looks like a pain in the ass. You have to remove the upper to remove the whole thing because of the HK sight?

    Gotta give it a try and lob them in there.

    25yds and irons? Mine really likes Sluggers too. Out of the 4-5 different brands I've tried it liked Sluggers and Winchester Super X the best. http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?/gallery/album/841-s12-slug-practice/ 75yds and irons ^

    Post up the results. What is your lead of choice? Since we can't own SBS' where i live, i still rock the OE length 19" barrel. It does surprisingly well at 100yds.

    I really think you guys are reading way too much into this. Fake news is Fake news.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    When you are able to stretch the S12's legs out to 100yds with slugs (like i often do), a quality mount comes in very handy. Shifts in zero with the recoil of a 12ga and a 1oz slug can be huge at 100yds. Especially when the group is already going to be a 5" or so spread.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    Actually I said, I don't think you understand what you are saying, when you state that the side rail likely may need fixed. Which you obviously didn't or don't, because the majority of Saigas do not need them fixed and that a quality side rail will return to zero. You don't have any experience with one that does, so why say all side rails will not return to zero? People looking to mount an optic on their Saigas side rail, will potentially read this thread and see that you said their gun will likely need fixed. And in order to do so will entail a fair amount of work to get it done correctly. Guess what, now alot of people will potentially give up because of that false statement. I'm well within my bounds to state correct information in rebuttal to that. Edit: You had the OP worried that he was gonna have to fix his, before he even had an optic mount to try out.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    The fuck? "I am just helping out here." So am I. There wasn't a single attack by anyone in this thread. I countered what you said with fact. Fact, Cheap AK optic mounts have proven to be failure prone and cause wandering zeros. Fact, the overwhelming majority of Saigas DO NOT need their side rails adjusted. Fact, i can remove the dust covers on my Saigas and Bulgarian Arsenals, while the RS 301/30mm optic mounts and Aimpoint PRO's are still installed, it's tight but doable. Fact, they also hold zero when i remove and reinstall them.

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    Do they cost $48 as suggested by HB, above? You get what you pay for. Perhaps the garbage mounts are why HB "had to" fix his side rails? Sorry.
  25. Mullet Man

    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    Again HB you don't understand what you are saying. With a quality mount, not UTG garbage, it will return to zero after every removal and install. OP, it's literally a matter of swinging a lever to remove and install the MI and RS mounts. A real difficult task. I'm super curious as to why MI said their mount is not made for shotguns? I wouldn't hesitate to put one on my S12. It's the cheap optics I'd be worried about. BTW, when you say the side rail "likely may" need shimmed, you are implying that of the thousands of Saigas that have been imported, the majority of them need their side rails adjusted. That just isn't the case.
