    MD Arms Double Stack Mag Patent

    The DS mags are a hope that surfaces every once in awhile. I try not to think about them often because then I would just be sad they aren't on the market!

    Introducing The Chaos WOC-12!

    Good luck! That rendering looks amazing and the interchangeability from Saiga to Vepr mags will be great for those of us who have both!
  3. This is really exciting. This and the WOC-12 would create a matrix of box magazine fed shotguns.

    Bolt carrier wear normal?

    HAHA thanks. I realized later that that is the area of the BCG that pushes the bolt home when it is chambering a round and does not see the same amount of stress as other areas. I have relaxed a bit about it.

    Bolt carrier wear normal?

    Thanks. I am a bit neurotic and don't have the background to know if peening like that tends to get that way and then stay that way or just continually get worse.

    Bolt carrier wear normal?

    I took down my Vepr 12 in preparation for cleaning it and noticed some odd wear on the bolt carrier where the bolt lug first engages it to unlock. There is some obvious peening and moving of material here. I am surprised because I have about 500-750 rounds through it but they have been either Nobel Sport slugs (the cheap, low power ones that SG Ammo had in stock back in 2011) or Federal multi purpose pack so I haven't been beating on it. Is this wear normal and how much should I worry about it? Should I contact TGI? Below are two pics of the area in my Vepr 12 and then I have two pictures from the same area in my Saiga 12 which probably has easily twice as many rounds through it. Thanks! Vepr 12 area of concern: Same area on my Saiga 12:

    Dinzag Arms in Business/Is Brian OK?

    I got an email from Brian two days ago. I guess in the process of moving some of his emails around some of them got lost. This was good news for us since he does great work!

    Dinzag Arms in Business/Is Brian OK?

    I'm sort of tempted to write an actual snail mail letter and post it to his house. I would be genuinely interested to know if he and/or his family is OK.

    Dinzag Arms in Business/Is Brian OK?

    I am glad I am not the only one. I emailed him November 18 and 2 weeks ago. Not getting an answer makes me really hesitant to order.
  13. I have a 556 NATO Arsenal SLR-106FR with the side folding polymer stock for sale or trade. It is unfired and comes with a 20 and a 5 round magazine. Has original box and all the goodies inside of it. $1000 $950 shipped. Things in which I have partial trade interest: 1) SIG P226 9mm with German made frame and stainless slide. 2) Beretta 90-Two in 9mm. 3) Beretta 8000 in 9mm (not the L model but the one with the full weight slide). 4) Beretta 8000 Inox in 9mm.
  14. I've emailed Brian twice now over a 2 month period without any reply. I really like his work but want to have a few questions answered before I order. Anyone here have recent contact with him?
