    Vepr 12 Rear Trunnion

    I'd just put a Magpul MOE AK stock or Zhukov on it and call it a day. Minimal effort, minimum expense, and maximum result. Those stocks are quite comfortable, lightweight, and nice looking. If looking for some LOP adjustment, the Zhukov offers it.

    Slide fire?

    Seems like there would have been a 'deactivation' etc. clause in there somewhere. What if someone pins one like collapsible stocks are pinned in ban states and it s no longer operable?

    just liked the look

    Good. Keep it light.

    Buy a barrel extension. Legion may have a few.

    Jamming issues

    +1 Support is key, especially with weak loads or taming the recoil of strong loads.

    Lynx?

    It is a little tricky getting the carrier back in. Not that big a deal to me though. As long as it isn't a big a PITA as putting an old Ruger MKII pistol back together I'm happy, lol.

    We may not see it during our lifetimes, but there will be another bloody fight for them sooner or later.

    Slide fire?

    Looks like some people are going to learn how to do it with a finger.
  9. Merry Christmas! Hopefully, I get to have some fun in 2019.

    Ks 12 and dove shot

    I can't wait to chop it and do a 100 round dump with it

    Federal Flight Control in Drums?

    For the win!

    Federal Flight Control in Drums?

    Unfired case length being too long and rolled crimps are the main common reasons certain loads will not feed correctly in drums. You need to know unfired hull length and check it with the old table. You might contact Federal for that info. I would be willing to bet longtime member Gunfun has a link to that ammo table copied and ready to paste
  13. I think my favorite of all time might be the Saigatech Krink 12.

    sko-12 shorty

    I just caught the post about #31 drill bit. Seems like fouling would be rapidly accelerated with ports that large. What size were they to begin with?

    What is your favorite Saiga 12 build ever?

    That's a really great idea. I may offer it as an option.

    What is your favorite Saiga 12 build ever?

    Are you talking about an additional means of disengaging the safety toward the middle of the selector? If so, the customer could send a Krebs (the original style, IIRC) and I'd work with it. I made one for a personal gun that was similar to the Vepr 12 unit that can be quickly bumped with the top of the hand. It works great, but adds a little width. The only reason I was going through any additional measures on the selector with that gun was for multi-gun matches, but that doesn't happen around here anymore.

    We all have brainfarts, lol. Not a big deal. No, that amount of travel is all it takes and I do some other work to reduce the amount of trigger travel with the selector in the safe position, so it is technically 'safer'. I'm not sure why no one else thought of a finely tuned short-throw selector. It takes time and a little attention to detail to perfect and that is probably why we don't see it elsewhere. It's a detail that I ran on my own gun for a long time and figured people would like it on theirs. I like the absence of an exterior stop and the level look of the selector when in the fire position. It looks like it should have been that way from the start. I wish Mikhail was still around. I'd like to hear his opinion on some of the work I have been doing. I think I do the AK based shotgun a little justice, in a tasteful manner, no crap on his AK

    Safe is up, fire is down. It is in the fire position.

    What is your favorite Saiga 12 build ever?

    It is for speed and precision. What goes in customer guns is for speed. I want to bring it to market. There will be one in every build at that point.
  20. Quick and dirty, you could use some 400 grit sandpaper wrapped around a precision file in the following places... trigger hook hammer where disconnector contacts hammer where trigger hook contacts disconnector where hammer contacts If you have good eyes or a magnifying glass, you might look for any significant burrs or significant rough areas and knock them down with the file first.

    Ks 12 and dove shot

    Yes, I have seen some really bad ones with really bad ideas implemented and nearly ruined parts. It usually comes from regular gunsmiths trying to work on one or a shop that would like to do Saiga 12 work, but isn't really up to the task. When the economy was bad I think a lot of shops would take anything in even if they didn't know the platform at all, just to keep cash flowing. Thankfully, I haven't seen much of it lately.

    Same video as the "can't hit without sights" thread. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_68wZDsoTE

    Ks 12 and dove shot

    XTR-12 shotgun and ALG AKT trigger are prime examples of what you are referring to in the 'engineer' commentary. They already know it all, why would they bother to listen to a jeweler or a pool builder, lol? As far as winners and losers go, I think receiver to trunnion alignment has everything to do with it. It is the one thing that can vary the most on Saiga 12s. I haven't handled enough KS-12s and Lynx to see if they vary as much in alignment.

    Radically short Vepr 12 SBS

    You're right. However, I have limits just like anyone else. I needed to hear that and I sincerely appreciate it.

    Radically short Vepr 12 SBS

    As far as I know, this is the shortest Vepr 12 with video of it actually running. This was the second test fire of this weapon. The first time it ran so well that I decided I needed to get some footage of it. I figured it would be one of those things that I would pick at in spare time until it ran acceptably, but I am pleased to admit that I was wrong about that. That weird back and forth wobble during the first mag is a result of me being so used to the AK100 stock and the Molot folder throwing me off a bit. The angle of the comb and the resulting placement of the butt while firing does not feel like home to me. Enjoy!
