  1. I don't agree. I don't conform to my R&R Saiga. I just snap it up and the sight is there in my face can't miss it. What I really like is the much much larger field of view inside the optic which helps me with airborn clays. To each his own. Pat You don't agree it doesn't work for me? That is funny! Do you have the Arredondo Sight Mount or the R&R Sight Mount in the Dove Tail? I have been manufacturing the reflex sight mounts that bring the sight to the rear of the receiver for six years and I agree it is very effective but I can not move my head forward with the Arredondo sight mount the way I like to do. But there again, I am building a new shotgun for Taran Butler, National Tripple Crown Winner, and he likes the Arredondo:) Jack Travers JT Engineering I don't agree that you have to confrom to the gun with the Arredondo mount. I can't say what works for you obviously. Here are my guns.
  2. I have all sorts of chokes (rem chokes for my R&R Saigas) but I use LM for most stages and I use Improved modified for harder steel targets like pipes we use which are hard to knock over at 20 yards or so. Pat

    broken mag!

    You know I have read this a 100 times but my real life experience has proven it to be false. Mostly dealing with pistol mags in particular Glock mags. Leaving them fully loaded and only cycling them out when officers qualified the mags springs would stop locking the slide back at around 6 months to a year. Downloaded by 1 round and the issue went away no longer had to replace springs. Another issue with leaving polimer mags loaded is feed lips can spread from the constant pressure. pat Funny you bring up Glocks. I have my .45 mags loaded at all times and my carry mags only get shot twice a year when I rotate ammo out. Ive yet to experience this issue that you speak of. Same for my girls 9mm Glock. My experience comes from training other officers with Glocks and carrying my own. Be glad you have not experienced this but I have numerious times to the point I now put it in policy to down load our mags by 1 round with Glocks to prolong spring life. Problems went away. The Glock 21 mags were some of the worst. I hated being forced to carry that gun. I now carry a 17 in 9mm by choice. But to each his own. pat
  4. I also had some problems with the Fast Fire 2, but on a pistol not on my shotguns. Good thing is that Burris stands behind their sights and replaced mine within a few weeks. The switch I made to the Aimpoint was to get a brighter dot and to prevent problems in the rain and the position does not bother me. I like the look of the Arredondo, but I shoot with a short stock and was worried I'd end up with the sight stuck in my face. Doug Doug, I tried them when they initially came out, Arredondo sight mount, and it wasn't for me. It makes you have to conform to your presentation of the shotgun, rather than the shotgun conforming to you. Jack I don't agree. I don't conform to my R&R Saiga. I just snap it up and the sight is there in my face can't miss it. What I really like is the much much larger field of view inside the optic which helps me with airborn clays. To each his own. Pat
  5. Got a second one. Always lived by the rule 1 gun is none and 2 guns is 1. Pat here is the older one.

  7. The rifling on a slug is cosmetic it does nothing to make it spin. Slugs are stablized like a badmitten birdy. By having the weight of the slug up front. If you want a slug to spin you need a rifled barrel. Why would you use steel shot unless your hunting ducks. I don't think most of us have our Saiga's for duck hunting. Pat
  8. I run a Delta Point on a Arredondo mount now. I busted the original Fast Fire 2 that came on my R&R in one season. I went to the AImpoint R1 (same as the H1 but silver) for a while and its a great sight but I did not care for the forward mounting of the dot. I went with the Arredondo mount because it sticks the sight close to my eye giving me a maximum field of view and this mount also lowers the sight as much as possible to help with off set issues. I use the tip of the triangle sighted in for slugs and I use the whole triangle like a red dot for close in shot targets. Pat
  9. We just got done with the 2nd Annual Birchwood Three gun Champion Ship up here. There were 4 R&R Saigas and 3 Firebird AKDALS and 1 Remington 1100 with a Xrail on it. The Saigas and the AKDALS ran fine. The Xrail was a jamamatic. The only stage it worked on was the aeral clay stage where the gun was held up pointing skyward most of the stage. I think he has a magazine spring issue. I got 3rd in open mostly because I bombed a rifle stage where we had to shoot at clay targets. Never use clays for rifle or pistol targets anyway. Here are the videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSk2AYeDRew http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tYej2tb770
  10. Both are comped. The AKDAL has an end of barrel comp and my R&R has a mid barrel comp that is the major difference because shotguns don't have much gas pressure to work with so the comp further back does much better. But I have read that Firebird says a mid barrel comp won't work on the AKDAL due to the longer gas action. Pat
  11. I think the Saiga from R&R has another huge advantage as well. Far less recoil. I fired my friends Firebird AKDAL with the same ammo as my Saiga and his kicked like my Tac Optics Benelli. The Saiga from R&R is far flatter and softer shooting. Congrats on the placement that is impressive. Pat
  12. How much does that target cost. Looks great. Now need to figure out a way to ship it to Alaska. Pat
