    I look forward to hearing how it goes. Thanks for weighing it. i wouldn't imagine that the failure to eject is related to the LRBHO...though I guess you see. Good luck!

    Among those who installed it, how has the Cadiz LRBHO worked out?

    MDARMS X CSSPECS steel dbl stack mag alive or dead?

    I'm still hopeful, with cash in hand when they come available.
  4. I was in my office seven blocks from the White House surrounded by colleagues. We had the TV on and were all trying to figure out what was going on and working to determine what we were going to do. At that time, my best friend of 30 years was stuck in bumper-to bumper traffic on his way to work when American Airlines flight 77 flew over South Washington Blvd about 200 yards ahead of him and crashed into the Pentagon. Someone I went on a mission to Taiwan with perished in the Pentagon. Finally getting out of D.C., I saw the Presidential helicopter fleet heading north from D.C. to, I presume, Camp David, following their usual route. One thing was different, though. This time, it was being orbited by an F-15. Never saw that before or since.

    Tac-47 Auto Plug: Cleaning frequency?

    Mine self-disassembled. I needed to back the screw out a lot, because my BCG was so well profiled and polished it runs very efficiently.

    Tac-47 Auto Plug: Cleaning frequency?

    Does anyone know if a replacement adjustment screw, spring and ball are available? Mine adjustment screw backed out and the parts launched into the grass...gone. I tried contacting TAC-47 but got no response.
  7. It's a real shame things are drying up. I learned so, so much from this site, from what to do myself to convert several S-12's, and also which vendors to trust, which parts and supplies I needed, who to rely on, and so forth. Without all that, my Saiga 12 experience, and those who relied on me, would likely have been extra expensive, or a disaster! I hope the US variant and clones are good enough to carry on the mag-fed semi-auto shotgun tradition created by the S-12, until the S-12 returns!

  9. Mike, thank you for bringing us up to speed. Facts, whether encouraging or discouraging, beat the hell out of rampant speculation. Don’t blame yourself for not having a perfect crystal ball. We do the best we can assessing risk. If doing something seems like a banzai run, that’s great, but it’s got to work, because you need to live to fight another day. I’m glad you didn’t commit a fatal misstep, so you can continue to conjure up more shotgun goodness. As an entrepreneur, I am thrilled you maintained control over non-Mossberg double stack applications. I guess they made you an offer for the whole kit and caboodle that you could refuse. It also tells me you see other applications for the mag. Maybe between the Saiga 12 and its clones there will be enough of a market to justify production. FYI, even thought I already have six of your drums, I would buy double stacks without any thought of how many drums or other mags I already have. As far as I am concerned, I cannot have enough mags for my AR’s, nor double stacks for my S-12’s! Best wishes to you, and for coming up with a brighter shotgun future. Keep on keeping on!

    MD Arms ceases drum manufacturing and sales

    STOP IT! Now it's a gun porn thread. IDK about a better designed mag fed shotgun coming along and dominating the market. Technology does not always rule the day. I am old enough to remember the Beta vs. VHS videotape format war. Beta was better, VHS won. I don't need Miss America to be happy...just a handful of DS mags to keep my drums company

    MD Arms ceases drum manufacturing and sales

    With the positive reports on the Kalashnikov USA Saiga-12 copies, their faithfulness to the Russian originals, and the ability to use the aftermarket parts designed for the Russian Saiga 12, I would think that Mike and the others are energized at the new market that is coming along.
  12. I just received this email from MD Arms. They have exited the Saiga 12 drum business. Is this a step toward preparing to offer double stack mags?? We wanted to let everybody be know that we will not be producing the MD-20 drum magazine anymore. We thank everyone who has bought and enjoyed one! What’s out there is it so think hard before you sell one... We have also sold our entire remaining inventory. The buyer has offered a $20 off each coupon to all of MD Arms’s past customers. This discount will only be available for a limited time or limited quantity, which ever is reached first. If you want another one for yourself or know someone that wants one now is the time. When the remaining stock drys up that will be it for new in the package MD-20 magazines. The MD-20 will know doubt start demanding a premium on its original retail price before long. You can view and purchase the remaining drums for sale at https://www.deguns.net/saiga-drum-858578003018-p/md-20.htm?CartID=1. Don’t forget to enter your $20 off each discount code.

    Muzzle Brake Testing Video

    I did one of those, and was going to mention that to Vadim. I can say that even doubling the weight had very little observable effect, but even light comps made a huge effect. It isn't the mass alone, or even primarily. That old wive's tale can die.Thank you. Yea I was amazed at how effective all the brakes were. I should have indeed tied a brake to the muzzle after the bare muzzle Test just to smash that myth once and for all, but honestly I was very pressed to do my filming that day and wanted to do the important stuff. Also, note that the lightest brake had the most effect on muzzle rise. Bad boy gunz has moved into full production of the 4oz aluminum brake. The first run was the steel one. He let me crank about 2000 rounds through that one and beat on it during competiton use to make sure it was absolutley durable. And it is. Thanks for watching guys! -V Thanks for putting it together. Your well thought out and executed program made for some real myth busting!
