    Kalashnikov USA finally shipping Saiga 12

    I think it’s just a 10/32 screw through the handguard. I want a komrad, at least for receiver/trunnion. May have to rework gas to run on something other than buckshot. But will still be fun
  2. hmmm i have noooooo i dea... the only things im thinking about are it shouldnt really matter? i turned a barrel OD down for a 3-4'' gas system shortening, and it takes aloooooootta meat off it back to near where the forcing cone is. folks do it, so i assume it doesnt impart "grenade" characteristics
  3. so normal wads are kinda weird, if i remember right, as they dont completely seal, thats the reason for hte gas check. or it doesnt seal the top of he powder completely. i wanna say hte nitro card is actually an 11ga (available at BPI etc). that maybe the reason for the 730 bore, to have no obstructions...? sorry for not addressing everything, watching kids etc limited time to look away
  4. barrel is like 730. or at the high end of .72x" ive been wittling at my bold little by little and mold one and see if it drops down easy. i would like to see if we could rifle one of these barrels. or, maybe just convert to 12 ga or something... as far as loadings go, the components they used past the gunpowder are pretty forgiving. the nitro card and the squishy plastic disc thing (name eludes me, kids frazzled my brain/interfere with garage time) are forgiving. i think the hull and base wad of the hull is the most critical part, or the part thats gonna get you into trouble. the BMG brass would prob take the 2" slug, but i dont wanna waste MY shoulder on it, haha.... gonna lighten that one, btw, no way im shootin over 1-1/2 oz without a fixture etchahahha i would suggest teh cast-boolits forum, they have some folks doing fun stuff with shotguns/slugs etc... good group of guys too.... helpful not like facebook/ar15.com where mostly folks justabuncha snarky poo flinging gremlins, hahah
  5. and where your upper come from for $150? thats a great price haha
  6. i have a lathe, but like everyone with one of those i am getting ready to move, so finishing landscaping and getting ready to sell is higher on the priority list... i thkn you could do the drop in slug, yoyu just use a regular wad, with the lee mold anyways... i will try and screen cap some of the facebook mag mod things that run with no nose cone later

    Vepr 12 mag release

    I’m gonna be in Loveland on mother’s day, lemme know if ya wanna get together ya, modern gunsmiths in stores basically mount scopes and clean guns. Not that I hate them, I just think most folks don’t want to pay what an actual smith would want. Plus dealing with the smiths particular “attitude of the day” is a lil off putting. Granted, my experience is coming from being that punk kid who undervalues the guy who has put in the time.
  8. mike bush is the original engineer on these. i thik he is at "vuduu tactical " or something in idaho/utah etc. i dont know how much he can say based on the patents on it or something? i was emailin him or a while, dont reemeber what all info i got out of him. will look back over them as far as nose cones, the are 18 or 18.5mm model rocket cones, but i dont know where from. (china) im sure they could be bought in bulk, if we could talk to the right person. 3d printing them would prob be an option as well. or ive tried makin them outta paper mache. thats time consuming for sure
  9. hahah i knew someone would be interested eventually!! somewhere someone posted 32gr of mystery powder, i think? dont know where i got that info. ive been using 28-30gr of 4756... i havent tried launching those nosecone cloned slugs yet. the slug in the picture weighs 2oz or so. the facebook group sucks. not any good discussions in there. somone posted pics of modding a mag to run with a spacer in the back to delete the nosecone.... i plan to mod a lee slug mold to have lands that will ride in the full bore, and somehow make it a slight hollow point... maybe just with a drill press as some on here or somewhere else may have suggested
  10. Here’s some progress. Why Aren’t you guys buying these?
  11. no per side markins this is the derya mk12. or thats what they go into canada as.... in america its the vr 80 and this bullpup. the tristar is made by diff company.... but really they kinda all the same, imho.... its up to the importer to demand quality.... like china and allegedly the lynx 12

    Ah! Such a kidder!! Buy the fastest, heaviest, cheapest load, Usually Walmart have a handicap load made by estate. Got some rio from academy that surprised me in my sko12 shorty that Hardly likes anything...

    Original 1 Gen Saiga 410 recoil spring

    Ya standard fuddery where folks “just have to take it apart”. Then it acts funny after that happens, cause the parts went “wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee” across the room under spring force.... ask me how I know. Buuuuuuut, I don’t just sell the gun without telling folks that I have no confidence in it anymore because I lost parts, I fix it!! Or find the lost part, haha
  14. (Ak 47 mag) palmetto Ks-47 complete lower, another ras-12 upper off gunstroker, some rio 1250 1oz. run good in the sko-12 PGO with 13” barrel. What’s the theories on 1250 1-1/8oz vs 1290 1oz. Or however the math typically is? I’ve been buying the heaviest and fastest stuff I can find for the past 6 month( reclaiming the birdshot in v trap) and was surprised the rio stuff worked...

    Kalashnikov USA finally shipping Saiga 12

    Holy cao!!! How much per round!?
  16. Dunno what cost gonna be, but it’s not Chinese and it has SBA-3 on it already! Gross stock adapter, maybe that’s on there for OAL? http://www.gunsholstersandgear.com/2019/03/14/kalashnikov-usa-komrad/?fbclid=IwAR1q9KhNYhNLWHVZ0I3EPpoj7bGPh6q_ko84HMxT9C1P4bdeYsUOj53nhhk

    K-USA non nfa s-12!!

    why go blowback? do a radial delayed like the cmmg guard!
  19. i just wanna get on that low recoil band wagon! obiously opemn bolt outta the equation, but could a semi auto gun be engineered todo the same type of thing? 3k (or even higher, thought was $4500) for a semi version of the AA is silly. kinda like how that JTS-12 ak has longer receiver, couldnt the long travel be duplicated?

    Lynx 12 Mods Saiga 12 true clone

    man, with that Turkish Grenade you posted, i just scared of anything at the moment! i did call SDS last week... they said their parts dont interchange with russki stuff... or at least bolt and carrier. said maybe gas block and tube would work...

    TriStar Bullpup shears bolt lug and injures shooter.

    shhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyIIIT! that is nasty! company makes half-assed product, tells folks to run atomic stuff in it, gun grenades. gee, couldnt see how this was gonna end up i am glad the guy is "alright".... my SN was below 400, maybe there wont be alot of these floating around to hurt folks. i sold mine yesterday, riveted normal trunnion on, sent it down the road. damn now i gotta send him this so he can watch for a recall or whatever.... my carrier had voids, they replaced it... no other parts were addressed.... could this have been barrel obstruction or " user error" ? bolt would rotate enough when you could miss the receiver guide rail with a lug, but i dont know if it would go near battery to get a round to fire.... has anything like this happened before on the russian guns? these things are bad luck, i caught a ricochet (shooting at a piece of steel, vertical steel, im a dumbass, i know... had safety glasses on though, ha!) the first night i had mine...
  22. ^ blasphemy!! Haha. I really dig the sw shields. They cheap, reliable, shoot great, carry a couple bullets and are compact and light enough that you don’t have an excuse not to wear it. “Rifles” I like AR pistols. They can be in my car loaded out here in colorful Colorado, and the incognito factor is nice if you want it. I would like to see pof release parts to their new DI revolution line, cause spending premium dollars for name isn’t my bag shotguns I like the vepr. Magwell, lrbho hinged top cover, doesn’t have that front lip like on a saiga. Have had a lip shear itself with 3” mags on a 12 rder. (A nono, I know now...) but I think that’s irrelevant on a vepr?

    K-USA non nfa s-12!!

    I think they just need to start selling anything. Need funds. Been working at stuff awhile with nothing in bank to show for it. And to offset payroll. That’s what the new mossberg ceo is doing? Throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks. That’s my feeling anyways, as this stuff feels kinda half baked and under planned?

    K-USA non nfa s-12!!

    Now they have a century type under grip buffer adapter on their website. With horrible finger grooves every where.... wonder what focus group said that was the way to go, or were those accessories the cheapest???
  25. Well put some sockets in the tube. Didn’t feel any lighter on the recoil. Needs more work. This is the vid from this morning On a side note, I don’t like the evil empire that is apple, but dang this formum and the phone interact well! Also, ivideo on phone is kewl! Turned the slow mo video into a minute instead of 4 and the interface is just real easy to use
