    Reading the description on the JTS M12, it was built on the RPK receiver. That is a 1.5mm receiver, so it would be closer to the VEPR not the Saiga-12 which is on the 1.0mm receiver. 

    /sarcasm on

    now where's my flamethrower....

    Saiga-12 is 1.5mm too. The bulged receiver (around the trunnion) is the main design difference in the V12 and S12 receivers. Saiga rifles had 1.0 thick receivers as well as most rifle varants.. 


    OP, I haven't handled any of the JTS product yet, but it looks to have the same front handguard retainer width as an AKM. You should email me. I will send measurements of a couple of handguards and you can compare it with what you have to shed some light on your options.

    I'm really sure it will break on the first try.  That is, a full magazine (heavy) and the recoil shock will tear the top off.  Too high of leverage forces

    These 1/6 scale trucks are fast and way more force is exerted on these than would be seen on a magazine. They sell and they hold up better than the factory A arms. People raise hell with them.

    I would terminate the idea with extreme prejudice.  That magazine won't last 10 seconds

    I know someone who is printing A arms for RC trucks and some of these polymer formulas are extremely durable. His last longer than the factory injection molded ones. I am sure that whatever he is using would make a usable mag.

  4. Funny story. I ended up with an AGP 10 rounder from buying a lot of things that were listed here. This was around 2010 or so. I used that mag and used it and used it, for a decade. It always made quite a bit of noise while loading it, but the thing ran great and I just figured that was how it sounded when loading from the spring bunching up, etc. Well, recently, I was doing some testing and heard something rattling when I picked up the mag. I figured it was some debris or maybe loose shot. Not even close, I pulled the floor plate from it and out came the spring is 6 pieces, yes 6 pieces. The spring had been broken the entire time and there is just one 6.5 coil piece doing all of the work with a bunch of other pieces rattling around in there. I stuck a spring from a XTR-12 5 rounder in it and the thing runs fine. I suppose the moral of the story is that even a broken magazine can run just fine for years and years. I say find an AGP mag, pull apart the two halves and you will have the geometry for the inside and the follower. Give it a shot, because you can ;)

  5. As for myself I have done almost nothing but push paper for two weeks. People around here are freaking out. People who hated guns are buying Glocks and AR15s. It is epic to hear them as questions about gear and see them listen intently for the answers! In some cases weeks ago guns were the furthest thing from their minds and some would have likely supported an assault weapons ban! It is surreal. Finally, people realize having a firearm to protect themselves with isn't such a bad idea after all.  I love seeing our community expand, but  have a lot of custom work to do.  I am looking forward to the moment when the smoke has literally cleared and I can work in peace. I'm already working against the odds.

    Yes he did, back in February.  He explained his situation but said he is ready to get back in the shop.  The thing is, it's June now and because of the virus going around and because of all these protesting, I sent 2 emails wondering about my parts. I still haven't heard anything. I don't know how else to reach out.  Do you know anything? I was thinking of starting up another post asking if anyone else in the forum is also waiting for their parts. 

    I can't speak for Shannon, but just about everyone in the industry is scrambling right now.

    Do you have a military AK100 kit I could buy? Only thing really holding me up from my conversion. 

    Edit to clarify: I’m looking for a military AK100 series rear folding trunnion only. Since it seems no one has modded a civilian version, it’s not looking like a good idea to try and I want the shotty to fire folded.  

    Where are you? 


    I have installed both the military and civilian kits. The weapon will fire when folded no matter which kit you have. The kits do not come with the linkage for the 'no folded fire' feature.

  8. It is likely about 19-3/16". There really isn't much to gain there without going SBS. I'd leave it as-is. If you are just bored and pretty good with your hands maybe it is worth it, but it definitely wouldn't be worth it to pay someone else to do it.

  9. I am not aware of anything that would be an easy install. Finally, I got to see a Tromix 8" SBS intimately and I was replacing the handguard with a bobbed Tapco unit. It was a lot of work, but turned out good. The customer wanted some rails and didn't want to modify the original handguard.  Not my style, but I thought it looked at home with the SAW grip and 8 rounder.urcShT9.jpg

    Thanks for the tip 🙄. I checked Westlaw and Lexis/Nexus for standalone 922R cases for individuals and couldn't find a one.  That's not to say they don't exist, but I didn't want to waste any more of time to validate what I already knew from extensive reading about it and previous research.

    What I did find, however, is (#1) the link to your own website in your signature doesn't work and appears to be for sale:


    (#2) in the handful of posts at the AK Files 37 in 7 years (with a literal 2-year break until recently) in addition to your posts here (6.6K) you come across as preoccupied, obsessed even, with bashing other vendors which is (#3) a not so thinly veiled attempt to drive business towards yourself which is (#4) laughable, considering #1.  I get it, you win the Big Fish, small pond award.  The work I have seen you do is top notch, which is what I'd expect from the exorbitant prices you charge (compared to some of the other vendors you're trying to malign), but with that being said I personally wouldn't  ask you what time it was in a clock factory and give you a thin dime of my hard earned money because of #1-4...

    Pauly, is that you? If so, I hope things are going great for you.


    I don't agree with your opinions, but you are entitled to them.  Understand me, you will not damage my business no matter what you say or do. You didn't make me and you definitely will not break me. My Father gave me this business. My customers pay what I  charge for what I do because the difference has no equal and is absolutely measurable. I pour out my heart in these builds and the customer can see and feel the love in it. I do have more basic service offerings, but few want that. You are free to have whoever you want to do your work, brother, I hope your build goes great and exceeds your expectations. You just aren't my customer and I'm fine with that. I'm not your shop, but you are angry and I can't understand it. Vote with your wallet, my friend. We all have our tastes and desires and some people want something really nice, well built, something that looks like the craftsman cared about it, and something that they know for sure runs great before they get it. I have raised prices many times to try and slow the flow of work, but it never works and I have given up. God bless you. I hope you can decide to be happy and have an outstanding day. Smile, brother, it's ok.


    My website? I think it is obvious that I am not concerned with it, lol. It has been down for weeks and I'm over it. I own the domain and many many others. When things settle down a bit, I will have it rebuilt and hosted elsewhere. I have no time to deal with it and it hasn't effected the flow of new inquiries. That crappy website didn't make me either ;)

    In the spirit of outrageous pricing...

    Ouch. Maybe I'll get lucky and someone has an oem barrel laying around from a upgrade 

    Email me and give me some detail about what is wrong with the barrel. I may ask you to text me some pics. I have spare barrels. Maybe we can work out a trade/cash deal. evlutionz@yahoo.com

  12. S17 8" SBS usually goes for $2k to $2.5k or so. I'd be surprised if anyone bit at a starting bid of $1600 on a non-SBS, right now. You never know though. He's not making anymore as far as I know and Russian guns that are unmodified or well built are getting a bit scarce.  However, Kalashnikov USA and SDS are making the scarcity of Russian Saiga-12s a non-issue. Start it at the minimum you would take for it. If it doesn't sell then you might be forced to sit on it or lower it. To further throw a wrench in things there are a lot of people who have zero fun money right now. Good luck with the sale.

    My understanding is MD Arms is no longer making their drum so the only way to buy one would be used/secondary market.  Like I said not a huge fan of a drum that...huge...! (sorry)

    Thanks!  I'm fairly certain from my research that I'm not going to have an issue with 922r, which only applies to importers/manufacturers anyway, which is probably the main reason why you've never heard of anyone getting jammed up for it.  There was a recent conversation about just that on the AK Files and with what I'm planning on it's a non-issue anyway...

    Having a few more Russian parts on a gun is not worth a federal sentence. Do as you will. When they decide they are interested in an individual they will be charging that person with everything they think will stick and then some. That individual will then cop a plea to have all of the lesser charges dropped and still serve 10 years. Not worth it.
