    S12 OEM magazine springs: where to purchase?

    Hey Scott it’s been a long time! I just emailed you. Note: you probably have my old Florida phone & email.
  2. I haven’t found any offerings online for our 5 round mags. Does anyone know of a source? Thx

    I will take pics once Tony returns the bolt & carrier along with any instructions. The swapping of the forward recoil spring first using the OEM Plug then the Tac47 both still experiencing the SP’s only to be apparently resolved with the Gunfixr plug does not seem logical. I want to see another 35-50 rounds of Federal BS then 10-15 slugs on the 1 or -1 Gunfixr function 100% before any other spring changes. I realize all your feedback is not to resolve the SP’s. I do have a NIB Saiga complete recoil rod assembly or I can purchase a couple new full power springs from CS. BTW: what gas plug do you use on your builds? I’m open to how to resolve the SP’s.

    Still just my hands but I think I'm getting real close:

    Why I do it? Doing custom work on the Saiga 12

    I had been away from the forum for sometime so I’m not aware of the apparent purging. I appreciate what you’ve all shared. I’ve been serving my clients for over 37 years and feel blessed to say how much I enjoy what I do after so many years. There are certainly times when the utility value of the money earned is secondary to truly serving while hopefully exceeding my clients expectations. If anyone reads my post on my bolt head damage they will quickly , as I have, understand your hearts. Your desire to all help me is unprecedented not to mention my testing your patience...

    I believe these two photo's are better. I did not focus on the level. It is resting on the side and did my best to hold it level with one hand and take the pic with the other. Please let me know if I need to get another set of hands to deliver the right pic. Hoping I'm at least getting closer.

    I purchased a straight edge square with a level attached. It’s hard to balance the gun while holding the straight edge level and take a pic. My guess is these pics aren’t exactly what you need so I’ll have to borrow more hands. I will get what you have been so patiently waiting on!

    Yes sir! I doubt I would attempt any mods other than a fine file to smooth out a burr. I do work on other platforms. Does it seem odd that the stovepipes stopped, at least for 35 rounds, once I put in the low recoil forward recoil rod + the Gunfixr plug?

    Haha no offense taken. Dirty Harry nailed it when he said “ every man’s got to know his limitations”...I’m more visual so pics are appreciated. I’ve got my grand babies this weekend but I’ll work on it ASAP. I appreciate everyone’s patience. School is in session.

    Thanks for trying. Is the pic below the area that you want the straight edge photo? If so then my ruler is about 1/8" too long. I'll work on getting a shorter piece:
