    If you have the correct tools, it's not very difficult. My first problem was using too small of a hammer. I bought a 4lb hand sledge that worked beautifully. I also bought a large brass door hinge, and used the pin as a brass drift punch. Oh yeah...I'm not sure if it was able to penetrate, but I hosed down the gas block with PB Blaster before whacking. Based upon my gun, just having unclogged ports doesn't mean squat. My 3 ports were only 1/16"...not nearly big enough. A couple other things I think may help...I used aerosol brake cleaner to clean off the PB Blaster. Then rubbed dow

    Today was a milestone for me, and I'd like to share some of my excitement. I got my Saiga 12 around 5 years ago. In all that time, it NEVER ran worth a crap. That was a particularly tumultuous period in my life...new job, child with special needs, divorce, etc. I tried a couple things, maybe putting 300 rounds through the gun since new. 100 rounds of 00 Buck to break it in...didn't help Recoil buffer...didn't help Re-profiled bolt...didn't help CSS Reliability kit...didn't help MD Arms V-plug...didn't help I knew of Jeff D's FTE thread, but could never seem to find t
  4. After 2 months, repeated unanswered emails, and a phone number that doesn't allow messages, I contacted my bank to stop payment. I realize that the Saiga 12 market has kind of died, but if MD is no longer in business, they shouldn't have a website that takes peoples' money. It's a shame. MD made some nice products.
  5. Well guys, I finally got around to attempting the gas port and gas block fix. First off, thanks so much for the excellent write up. It helped a lot. Like several of you guys, I had a heck of a time getting the gas block off. The pins weren't that bad, but using a shelf bracket and my ball peen hammer had no effect at all. When I read through every post, I found a couple nuggets of great info. First off, you need to use a big enough hammer. I went to Home Depot and snagged a 4lb blacksmith hammer. I also ran to the door aisle and grabbed a large brass door hinge. I scavenged the brass h
  6. You shoot 500 to 1000 clays every time you go to the range? I'd love to see a video of someone shooting 970 out of 1000 clays in one trip.
  7. Does the TimberSmith set fit on the VEPR 7.62x39 with no modifications? Thanks, Brad
  8. I bought the SGM adapter and an RD adapter, but neither have arrived yet. I really want to try out the Canis as well, but they're back ordered at the moment. Thanks, Brad
  9. Hello all, I've just purchased my first VEPR and want to convert it to a more traditional appearance. I've noticed there are quite a few adapters made to cover the slant cut at the rear of the receiver. Which of them seem to have the best fit and finish in your experience? Thanks, Brad
  10. The stock Saiga gas tubes don't have the handguard retainers.
  11. Do you need to use those two tension springs when fitting this stock set to a Saiga? Thanks, Brad
  12. Dang, that's a sweet 20 gauge. I have no interest at all in a .410. I think I'm going to pass though. My wife didn't even like holding my S12. It's too heavy for her. I'm guessing a 20 isn't a whole lot lighter. Thanks, Brad
  13. Hello all, My wife is really starting to enjoy shotgunning. So far, I've purchased a Mossberg 500 and a Benelli Montefeltro for her in 20 gauge, and she's really becoming a good shot. She likes the look of my converted Saiga 12, but she's a little intimidated by 12 gauge, so I was thinking of converting a S20 for her. I've been looking, but the best price I've found so far is $599. Does anyone know of any better deals out there? Thanks, Brad
