    I'm not sure what to think of it.

    Well, it does say 'any topic is welcome here'
  3. Sorry, I goofed. $400 to true and blueprint would be 4x insanity, lol.

    Knockdown power and pattern?

    At 15 yards away you may not be getting enough shot on the target. As gunfun said try some chokes, different loads, or combinations of both. You might even try some Federal loads with the Flight Control hull, but up close it may be like firing a slug. I haven't had the opportunity to do much experimenting with them, but they are impressive.
  5. Go here... GA Precision ETA: Edited for sanity. It is $100 to true and blueprint when they are installing and barrel at the same time. Barrel install is $290. Sorry. One can't even buy the tooling required to do this work for $400, so if I needed it done it wouldn't get done at my shop Out it would go... It is about $400 to true and blueprint an action and install a barrel (labor, no parts). These guys definitely know what they are doing. They do fluting and I would guess they do profiling, etc. but you will have to ask them.

    TriStar Bullpup shears bolt lug and injures shooter.

    It looks like the carrier skipped right over the locking cam on the bolt. Are the bolts really wobbly in these? I'm glad I wasn't there. The shooter is SO lucky none of that got the eyes, face, or unit (or did it?). That scarring on the arm looks like it may be worth a few bucks too. I'd like to see the manual and find out whether or not it states any ammunition limitations. 1.25 oz at 1700 fps is pretty hot. I'm not an expert on DE, but would hazard a guess that it is max dram. I was over firing 3" loads a long time ago. Too expensive and too punishing. If what I need to do requires 3" I'll just grab a rifle and fire more shots at whatever it is that needs to be utterly destroyed.

    K-USA non nfa s-12!!

    From my limited experience with the two... The KS-12 is beautifully made and is superior to the Russian guns in regards to build quality. Metallurgy? Rounds will tell. I want one of my own (I want to AOW a Comrade), but really need to offload some stuff first. I am finally starting that 6.5" build on a KS-12 for a customer. The Chinese guns (Lynx and Spets) look pretty good in regards to build quality and they have some well thought out deviations from the original design in a couple of spots. The trigger guard and safety are a little odd looking, but those are the only glaring dislikes that I have. the trigger guard is pretty easy to deal with and the safety just is what it is. I could get past it though. Both fullsize clones run impressively out of the box (the ones that I tested), but I can't speak for the short ones. I wish they would have done them with a short gas system, but on the other hand it affords me the opportunity to do some work on them
  8. They need to bring that stupidity to Yulee, FL. It would get squashed quickly. Citizens and Police would be on them like a sledgehammer.

    Lynx 12 Wood Stock?

    Wood can get expensive. You might check Ironwood Designs.
  10. People come to me from time to time wanting a custom bolt gun built. I always refer them the GA Precision. I've never heard anything but people being impressed with their builds.
  11. I think I'm digging that more than the MG.

    Looking for a steel vented gas tube cover.

    DPH used to make one for the Saiga 12, but it has been out of production for a really long time. You might grab a Mossberg heat shield and retrofit it. They are about $50 and you would at least have enough to do another retrofit later if the need arises.
  13. In the words of a very famous man "You gotta know when to walk away and know when to run". Very well done. I know you have to be glad you fled. It progressively gotten worse to the point of it looking like everyone a position of power is mentally deficient. I often wonder if they are simply trying to run off anyone who is of sound mind and has critical thinking ability, so they will have an even stronger hold on the power they use as a weapon against personal freedom and liberty. It is indeed a very very sad situation to see the place that symbolized freedom and prosperity in the eyes of many of our ancestors who immigrated here turn into the complete opposite. Should NY ever be taken back I will go there. Until then, I won't set foot there nor spend a dime there. My wife recently went to go visit her son in NJ and do some sightseeing in NY. She knew better than to ask me if I wanted to go. If nationwide carry is passed I might go, just to jab a finger in the eyes of those who seek to disarm us.
  14. I feel for you brother. I have nothing of that nature keeping me here should I decide to leave. Being stuck in NY or another state like that would be my worst nightmare. I love some personal freedom and low taxes and will go wherever to have those basic conditions. Well, as soon as you can defect you might be ready to jump before they make the punishment for leaving even worse.
  15. 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)
  16. I am seeing a lot of NY tags these days, just about every day on my very short 4.6 mile commute to work, sometimes multiples. It is very concerning. I hope they are not still voting for the party that created the liberal tax policies they fled here to seek refuge from. I am considering having some sort of bumper decals made to the effect of... DON'T BE STUPID If you moved to here to flee liberal tax policies don't vote for liberals and liberal tax policies here If anyone has a great bumper decal (stickers are for kids) idea that would convey this better or more efficiently I am all ears. I have a couple of accounts with places that make these things and I would be happy to send you a couple, maybe anyone here who wants one if cost is not too much. It would be a little bit before I do it, but it has been on my mind a lot lately. The effort to save Florida from the idiots that don't seem to be able to figure out if they vote like they did where they left they will have exactly what they left has to start somewhere.
  17. 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

    I can do pretty good drawings. I've studied it twice through the years. I've seen hilariously bad drawings, so I can only imagine what kind of stuff has been submitted to you. In most cases I would provide a prototype. It would probably be refreshing for your brother While I am here, thank you for the knowledge that you offer to the community here. I always learn something from you and I really appreciate it. I know I am not alone in that.

    Saiga Unlimited

    I may have to take you up on the offer you made to him, lol. Is it transferrable?

    Saiga Unlimited

    If it works, video will sell it.
  21. Looks that way. I am sure it is extremely difficult to stamp one really large one like that. Maybe CSSpecs can comment on that.
  22. 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.
