  1. I opted for bolted, so I could remove it myself later on if I wanted to. I like the size of the trigger guard, I need that extra finger room.
  2. I wanted a larger trigger guard to use winter gloves with my gun (Winter can get harsh here). Later down the line, can one trigger guard be switched to another without drilling?
  3. Looking back, that would have been a wise decision. However, to save face, I'll probably just let him finish the job. I'm really reluctant. I've used this guy in the past for other things, and it's been fine every time, no complaints. He was upfront that he's never done a saiga conversion, but I thought better him with his experience than me with none. I took it to the range anyway. Still cycles birdshot like a champ. But still, that's a pretty big thing to miss...probably shouldn't have just dropped it off stripped down to nothing. I have really bad luck with guns. Oh, the Cadiz guy? Yeah! I've heard alot about him. Yeah, that would have been a better option. But this ruise cruise has set sail, and I'm the captain.
  4. So, in conclusion, it's fixable? And no. Not alot of Saigas in my region.
  5. Every AK has a pistol grip that lines right up with the guard. I just hope it's repairable.
  6. I just hope its fixable. Well, with gunsmiths, you have well known places with FFL transfers where you have to ship your guns, or local places. I've used this one in the past, but I wasn't expecting this. A converted AK is not supposed to have that gap. I just pray to God it's fixable.
  7. Hello. I'm back again. Picked my saiga up from the gunsmith. Everything went well, till I installed the pistol grip. I'm using one of those overmolded grips. When I put it together, I found quite a gap. Should I send it back to get the grip moved forward?
  8. So are we going with the M5-.8 with the 10-15mm pitch (buy both screws, see which one is correct)?
  9. I think I'm gonna stick with JB welding the cover, sanding it down, and using the color GunFun recommended. If it's under a vented cover, it shouldn't stick out too bad. Thanks!
  10. Thank you for the suggestion. My only fear is the paint wouldn't match the finish of the rest of the gun
  11. Greetings Fellow Enthusiasts, When I first bought my s12 a few years back, I made an excellent decision by buying a cheap quad rail on ebay, and torqued down the wrong screws, putting two large dimples in my gas tube. Gun runs great, but I don't like looking at the gas tube. I don't want a quad rail anymore, I want a standard foreend that encapsulates both the barrel and the gas tube (all i can find only cover the barrel). A rail on the bottom would be nice, but not required. I've spent a couple hours looking, and can't find one. Can you help a newbie out? Pic related, How badass I felt when I got the quadrail because oper8r as fuq
  12. As the title implies, I want to buy a saiga 12 gas tube. I know they're pretty rare to come by, but I figured I'd at least give it a shot. I'm not really familiar with the exact details of a conversion, but the gas tube would need to work with an unconverted s12. The old one still runs great, but i damaged it cosmetically pretty bad (a complete hurr durr moment, but I digress). Any response would be greatly appreciated. I'd really like to keep it under 50 dollars, preferably via paypal. Thanks for looking.
  13. Quick Question: When a saiga 12 is converted (standard conversion from any gunsmith) what happens to the gas tube? Is there a gunsmith who switches gas tubes when he converts a saiga? The only reason i ask is, I definitely found a way to dent my gas tube (and look like an ass while doing it). While the quad rail hides the imperfection, I still know its there, and want to have it converted some day
  14. If one could promise the reliability to match my s12, Id purchase in a heartbeat.
  15. Can I get back to you in a year or two? Its too close to call. I love my s12. Mine ran great out of the box, but I still wanted to fork out money for accesories (like getting something bigger than a 5 round mag) and picking up my "Crapco" Stock (go to hell, I love mine) For the record: I have not shot, but have handled the Akdal 1919. Performance doesn't matter to me in this personal opinion, as it can only be equal to or less than that of my saiga (she's jammed literally three times in the past year) Lets be realistic though. A plastic-feeling Turkish made shotgun? With no aftermarket potential as of now? (we shall see). And even if they came out with 10 rounders, a drum would never be made (the feed lip profile is so low, It'd look to awkward/get in the way). Saiga 12 has an established reputation as a quality Russian firearm. Russia is known for firearms (more like taking 1 design and stretching it out over 60 years, but who's counting? I've never hear of Turkey producing anything, let alone firearms. And the AR fanboys will be all over it because it looks like the beloved ar15, even though the action is not even close to that of their rifle. If the saiga never came to be, I'd be inclined to get a 1919. Necessity breeds invention. But there was no need for the 1919...... it's an answer to a problem that wasn't there.
