  1. I know two who perished that day, one in the Pentagon, and one in the south tower. I know someone who should have been in a room that morning where everyone died, but as fate would have it, they overslept and missed the fatal meeting where friends and colleagues died, and had survivor's guilt for a very long time thereafter. A dear friend, I was best man at his wedding, saw American Airlines flight 77 streak over South Washington Blvd just a few hundred yards ahead of him and slam into the Pentagon, his shouts into his cell phone piercing the ears of another friend with whom he was speaking at that moment. Late that morning I ventured out of my office just blocks from the White House. Driving north out of DC I saw the standard three helicopter Presidential fleet flying their usual route over the Maryland suburbs toward Camp David. This time something was very was different. They were being orbited by an F-15. Never saw that before or since. We are just a few who shall never, ever, forget.
  2. Other sites I've joined recently have a vetting process where you apply to join and the mods check you out in a very basic way before they let you post. Cuts down on the riff raff.

    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?
  5. I'm still hopeful, with cash in hand when they come available.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!

  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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. Just enter in the coupon code field to receive it. Thanks again everyone and we hope you had a very Merry Christmas!!!! Mike Davidson MD Arms, LTD Copyright © 2017 MD ARMS LTD, All rights reserved.
