  1. Just saw this on another forum. Atlantic Firearms has a few of the Kalashnikov USA Saiga-12 copies and will start testing soon. I just realized that Atlantic is no longer a vendor here (appears that way, at least) and if there is an issue with me posting this info, please simply delete it. I thought it was good news for the community. If they are around $900 or less and decent, it should be a great deal for a Saiga 12 that doesn't need to be unsporterized. Let's hope...

    Saiga Unlimited

    If it works, video will sell it.
  3. Looks that way. I am sure it is extremely difficult to stamp one really large one like that. Maybe CSSpecs can comment on that.
  4. Why is there a cheek rest on a gun that already has very low sights?

    vepr12 ammo

    Winchester AA loads commonly found at Walmart vary from 1200 to 1300 fps. I'd buy a box of 1200 fps, 1250 fps, and 1300 fps and see which is the weakest it will run then go back and stock up. It should easily run Win AA 1300 fps. If it doesn't, there is something wrong with it or something wrong with the way you are supporting the weapon.

    Side profile of a good shotgun hammer?

    As I understand it, there is at least a slight difference from how one might modify one to work in a Saiga or Vepr. CSS sells them specifically modified for Lynx. I haven't gotten to the point in my workload where I'll be doing anything to a Lynx yet. I'm still eyeball deep in Saigas and Veprs. A good start would be to remove your Lynx FCG and compare it to a Tapco G2 FCG. That's usually how I start, by eyeball first and then document relevant measurements taken by calipers.

    Kalashnikov USA finally shipping Saiga 12

    Look at the left side of the barrel hood. That is likely what it is contacting. There is supposed to be a slight bevel on the hood. It may be a fine detail they have missed.

    NEW US Made Magfed Shotgun...Coming Soon

    Well, with certain parts redesigned it might be ok. I have had one here for a good while and haven't had time to address everything about it that needs attention. I hope to catch up soon and devote some time to it.

    AK-style front sights?

    For me, it is a mainly a matter of comfort. I don't like the feel of the recoil impulse when I am all of the way down where I can see the sights and I have fired enough to hit with these things without sights, which is admittedly quite a bit compared to most users. Really though, it doesn't take much effort to point shoot with non-slug loads at close distance with a little practice, assuming it is done fairly often. On top of that, the sights aren't all that generous a means of aiming. After noticing how long it had been since I had actually used sights on these I decided the value of decreased snag potential and a cleaner look was greater than the use of the sights that probably were not where the weapon would hit anyway due to the lack of reasonably precise alignment on these things. I trained past not having sights long before I didn't have them I do have one with sights (IZ-433), but have never fired it. It just sits waiting for me to figure out what to do with it.

    Notch vs Rail

    If you are easy on things and need to use the gun for something that would require more accurate aim then the 108 sight is fine. However, I have seen a couple of them broken or missing parts and it is pretty hard to find that stuff now in the US at least.

    What to Get Next?

    PSA pistol lower with SBA3 brace, Geissele 2 stage trigger (pick one), PSA 12" 6.5 Grendel upper, a decent 8x or greater optic that isn't too large (Primary Arms 1-8x with ACSS is nice for the coin), and a YHM Resonator. I am actually wanting to do this, but my miserly boss refuses to pay me enough to have any fun money.
  12. They don't have to be factory built, none of mine are. Pistol: Glock (it works and there isn't a lot of crap on it) Rifle: AR15 (kind of hard to argue with the ergos and modularity of this) Shotgun: Saiga-12 (I am not aware of anything that even comes close to the durability and potential of the Saiga-12)
  13. Starting Wednesday night 04/11/2019, I will be taking a week off from communicating. Thursday after next I will start working on the backlog of comms between now and then. I do appreciate your patience and understanding.

    centerfire called about the drum for the veper

    Yeah, let's see that. This crap SGM 25 rounder can't keep up. Does a really good job of dust collecting though.

    Second range report on my Lynx 12

    Manage recoil, shoulder has a lot of flesh (more flesh = more sore and bruising). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17s9wLi1gDk&t=51s

    AK-style front sights?

    Best fix = knock out sight, weld dovetail full and blend. File front off

    Side profile of a good shotgun hammer?

    There isn't enough left on the Tapco G2 to make it like a factory hammer. Factory hammer is a better profile.

    K-USA non nfa s-12!!

    I agree, it's a little weird. I don't have any interest in a pistol caliber AK, but years ago I would have been all over it. They waited too long, lol.

    K-USA non nfa s-12!!

    Well, others are beating them to the punch on the 9mm. Even PSA has one now.

    K-USA non nfa s-12!!

    They knew people would be sending them to me for radically short AOW builds, so the barrel was getting chopped and threaded anyway

    K-USA non nfa s-12!!

    I would be surprised if they entertain that idea. Most of these companies will keep selling it the easiest way as long as it sells. Most will wait to improve things until the item runs out of gas sales-wise before they would even give it a second thought.
  22. I view them as weapons. They are not only used as a weapon, but that is the fundamental purpose of them and they will be the first thing we would like to have in our hands should things go bad. Basically, if I could only grab one pistol, one rifle, one shotgun, and roll, those would be my choices. They all feel just like home.

    AWS Spetz 12

    LOL! $20 shipping... whatever, I need one on hand

    AWS Spetz 12

    That's it. I think I'm about to order that tap too. Even Saiga-12 gas blocks are a bit goofy. This could save me some time.
