  1. I have a few guns I am no longer interested in keeping. Prefer cash and local sale at a local barracks or FFL. I am willing to ship to FFL, but I will need to double check the laws and fees. This list will eventually be cross posted to some other sites (armslist, GB, locally, etc...), but first dibs is here. Match the tag number in the list to what is in the picture. If you have questions or want more pictures let me know. Most guns are in good to like-new condition (a few are new). G21 and G55 have cosmetic damage. "na" is for parts/junk and I'll throw it in for free/cheap with any other purchase. The list: Prices are negotiable. I might have valued these inaccurately but they should be in the ballpark.

  2. I got the "blemished" lower on the Black Friday sale. Seriously, I can't find a blemish on the "outside" (the visible side). There are a few slight imperfections that I found on the other side that are well hidden when mounted. Added an MRO which was $353 shipped, from a (reputable) seller on eBay. All in all, came out to be just below $500 for what should be a near first class optics setup. There is no way I can co-witness with the sight up front, despite the extremely low profile. Mounted in the rear, I can barely cowitness. I can see both sights and line them up in the left/right direction, but not vertically. Won't be able to aim if the dot dies, but that's what quick release is for. And I just confirmed I have an astigmatism... I was sure it would show up since I barely need to use glasses. Using glasses fixes it, and even without glasses, the dot distortion is bearable. Now I'm forced to pony up for contacts or wear my glasses when I shoot.
  3. Not that it would be a deal breaker, but does the MRO co-witness the s12 iron sights (around the bottom third), or does it sit too high? I am pretty sure the RS is among the lowest mounting options. It would be nice to have that option or add a space if I didn't like it.
  4. 303m because I can always chop off whats not needed, and it would be identical (my workmanship aside) to the 301 or 302. I wasn't sure where I wanted the optic mounted so that model left me options for mounting, and the option to move the setup to a more appropriate rifle (and add a scope) if this is overkill for a shotgun. If anyone has experience with comparable parts on my list and has a preference or something better in the same price range, I'm all ears. MRO looks nice with field of view compared to the Aimpoint pro/t1. I usually shop car parts on Black Friday, but the car is done... good call. I found a deal on the RS and Aimpoint as a package that puts it under the price of a Rakurs. I hope Black Friday puts it under/near the PK01-vs, then its a done deal. MRO + RS looks like where I'm headed. Still have a few days to decide.
  5. After a ton of research here's what I have come up (and some thoughts) with for as options for my Saiga 12. Anyone want to weight in with thoughts/experience. Main goal is to have something better than iron sights that is effective and reliable. I know it is a shotgun and not a sniper rifle, so any overkill would have to be adaptable to a more accurate gun. 1) PK01-VS can be had for ~$320. Very simple, all in one solution. (Skipped the PK-AS, as it appearantly might break on the S12) Low profile. Can co-witness if desired (I think). Support is non-existent. (only con?) Reasonable price for the quality. Rakurs is too expensive. Should retain zero after R&R. 2) UTG Pro (MTU-016) plus any RDS (see below...) Cheap ~$45 Probably has decent support. Not easy to R&R because of tolerances. Tightening mechanism deforms the mount (con) Some reviews state quality is subpar, others swear by it. Can hold zero "well enough" (this is a shotgun after all...)? 3) RS regulate AK303M (~$207) 30mm (lowest possible profile with Aimpoint Pro) or Rail (more universal? but higher mounted) Seems to be the undisputed best. Sturdy and non-deforming clamping mechanism. Holds zero as good as anything with R&R Expensive (only con) Adaptable Can be adjusted to be perfectly center over the barrel. Runner ups: Midwest Industries (might not be centered, deforming clamp?) KV-04s (did I read about one or a knock off breaking?, does have a non-deforming clamp) SM-13 (seemed similar to MI above) NPZ Universal (hard to find?) BP-02 (can't find one, gamble on center) If I go with anything besides #1, odds are that if I ever get a real long range rifle I could just transfer the red dot to it, and hope it plays nice with a scope. So in summary, I'm having a tough time deciding. Too many options. Need a second opinion on what is realistic. ~$500 seems reasonable. I would need a damn good reason to go closer to $1000. Anything decent/reliable for less, I'll take. Budget option ~$100: UTG Pro and a Aimpoint CLONE (Primary Arms?) (haven't looked too hard into pricing...) A step up ~$150: KV-04s + Aimpoint CLONE $350: PK01-VS $500-800: UTG + real Aimpoint pro or T1/T2 ~$650: RS regulate + aimpoint pro
  6. Im pretty much sold on the BP-02, in the low profile flavor... I assume that TZ-ZEN is using the low profile variant and not the original "high rise". Also, does a folding stock clear/fold flush to the side or does it fold the other way? (It look like it folds towards the bp-02 mount) I will be doing the conversion eventually, but for now I have a stock s12 and I want to proceed without any regrets/setbacks later. thanks for the Primary Arms red dot recommendation. Until that I thought I was stuck spending 300+ for EOtech or Aimpoint... And is a red dot good enough for hunting or somewhat long distance aiming like 100-300 yards tops? If it will work (since this is a 12gauge...) at those distances accurately, It might just be worth it for the aimpoint (youtube vids def make the aimpoint look worth the price). Or am i better off with a 1x-7x ish scope for the longer distances? I guess russian optics are out of the question for now. Again, Thanks
  7. so a red dot could be mounted anywhere? even at the front of a front top rail? but a scope has to be mounted closer to where the eye will be, correct? Also, has anyone actually damaged a barrel or anything by putting 1000's of rounds through a S12 with the chaos or UTG front quad rail? Im not too interested in anything beyond some sort of sight. Maybe a flashlight for HD when the sight is off, Maybe a bottom mount laser for kicks. Maybe a fleshlight attachment to tell zombies to eat pu55y! Main focus is a sight/mount or sight with built in mount. I assume the russian sights built on top of mounts are probably higher quality and more expensive than even my budget (250 tops) correct? And I imagine a $150 shotgun sight would do just fine on a $50 rear mount. Is there a superior rear mount sight in the 30-60 range? Is there a superior scope/red dot value at around $80-$150? I know its sort of a "point and shoot" but i'd really like to work on some sort of range. and thanks for the input, seriously anything at this point will help. I hardly know jack sh!t about guns, except paintball . I kinda just added this to my hobbies.
  8. So I did some more searching... I guess I missed the part where most quality sights have a mount built in... and they are all quick disconnect. that solves a lot. So now the question is... Which one should I get? I have a saiga 12. Its gotta take the recoil. I will be using it for target/fun/plinking, and probably "hunting" whatever I can find on friends/relatives private large lands (be it deer rabbit duck whatever) My budget is around $150. If decent quality is found at $70 ill take it. If there is significant utility to push to 200 or 250 please justify it with reviews. Sorry about the long winded original post. Im pretty sure Im going rear-mounted sight by now, thanks.
  9. I am a new Saiga 12 owner as of last week. Im pretty anxious to get a sight so I started looking into rails... I saw the chaos and the UTG front mount Quad rails that seem to be of decent (read: solid for a good amount of rounds). /then I saw the rear mount top rail or optional side and top rail. (listed below) Then I read about how the UTG and Chaos (or utg only at least...? idk) could over time distort the barrel by solidly connecting the gas chamber to the barrel. ( yes I am aware that there is a connecting peice at the end of the gas chamber already... So the pro/con to me seems to favor the rear mounts (please correct me if i am blatantly wrong, I could be. Front mount w/ top extension: Pro: Tons of options, Flashlight/laser mount etc... front vertical grip solid... Con: Expensive, Potential barrel damage, heavy, kinda mall ninja excessive (would prefer a top/bottom only rail option) Russia doesnt make them, must be a reason... mounts to the "shaky-est" part of the gun which could be bad for calibrated scopes/dots etc... Rear mount, with possibly side rail, and further possibly a bolt on the bottom of factory front grip rail (picatinny) : Pro: Cheaper (~50-70 opposed to ~100+) russia makes some and there is a mount for it... seems solid, mont damage anything, mounts to a less shaky part con: no top front mount? oh well. Could be too far back for red dot maybe? (i wouldn't know) I found some here... any other solid/better recommendations?http://store.carolinashooterssupply.com/servlet/-strse-147/AK47-SIDE-LOW-PROFILE/Detail http://store.carolinashooterssupply.com/servlet/-strse-1075/AK47-Saiga-Scope-Mount/Detail I also have a few questions about compatibility... Will the rear mount interfere or make a conversion uncomfortable/awkward or impossible? Will it block the dust cover removal? (a non issue with the quick release models) Is it too far back for a decent scope or red dot? Will the chaos/UTG really damage my barrel? Is the rear mount really straight and mount straight each time if removed (I read about one on amazon that is so far off that one cannot zero some scopes correctly.) Would bolting something like a Picatinny to the front grip be solid enough for a front grip, flashlight, laser, all 3? Thanks
