  1. I guess I was one of the lucky ones. I sent my S12 bolt to Pauly, I guess it was before he went down hill. I got it back and he did a fantastic job on it.
  2. All I can say about the new Krebs sights-WOW! Absolutely fantastic.
  3. Got my Saiga back from the local gunsmith. He installed my Krebs Combat sight set. Took her out back and ran some rounds through it and it seems pretty much right on. I bought a 12 gauge laser bore sighter and it seemed to help zero it in. Looking forward to running some more rounds through it before the bowling pin match comes around again.
  4. Got a 12 gauge laser bore sighter. Figured it ought to make it fairly easy to adjust new Krebs sight when I get the gun back.
  5. Decided to drop off my Saiga at my local gunsmith to have the Krebs combat sights installed. I didn't want to muck up my nice gun. They are going press the rear sight out and the new peep sight in.
  6. Use a dremel to cut across the sight almost all the way through. It will come out much easier. Will the new sight (peep sight from Krebs) go in relatively easy?
  7. How hard is it to remove the factory rear sight and replace it with the Krebs part? Any"tricks" I should know about?
  8. Ordered a set of the Krebs Combat sights for my Saiga 12
  9. I like to shoot in bowling pin matches. Gun shoots high with OE sights, have to compensate by aiming low.
  10. Any body got any suggestions for improving sights on my Saiga 12?
  11. ^ Gotcha. Sorry to disrupt your vacation. OK, I see the two spot welds on the follower. ^ Please contact me when you get back to work. Thanks Jim Ray
  12. I have tried many times to call CSSPECS, left some voice messages and tried to email them with no reply. Are they still in business?
  13. I think I got that updated follower-I'll check and see how many it holds.
  14. I have a CSSPECS 8 round steel magazine that I bought quite a while ago. When I first got it I ran some rounds through it and it seemed OK. I haven't done anything with it in quite a while, but I loaded it up yesterday and tried to use it. I first loaded 5 rounds in it and all 5 ran fine. Loaded up some more and now the first round "jams" and will not load. Took that round out and tried again, same thing. I took those rounds out and put them in a different mag and all ran fine. loaded up another mag and it ran fine too. Loaded the CSSPECS mag up again and the same thing. Puzzeled. I am goi
  15. Santa brought me a shiny new Ruger Mark IV for Christmas. Wow! Wow, what a cool gun. I installed HI Viz front FO sight and a "V" notch rear sight, an Eagle's Talon extractor, a pair of American Walnut grips from Eagle Grips and I have an Accurizing kit on order from Volquartsen.
  16. Received my new design follower today. Popped it in, no problems. Thank you.
  17. So, if I buy a new 10 round Saiga 12 magazine, will it come equipped with the newest designed follower?
  18. I have one of your 8 round magazines. How do I go about getting the new follower?
  19. OK, what's the deal with the retrofit followers? I have one CSS metal magazine-why should I get one? What's the advantage, or what problem does it fix?
  20. No, I was one of the lucky ones that got my bolt back from Pauly, kind of before the stuff hit the fan. He did a really good job on it. I go to Pin Matches once a month in Southern Ohio, it's called The Miami Rifle And Pistol Club. It's one of the oldest clubs in the country. The first part of the match is for pistols (any caliber), .22 rifles, You have to knock the pins (5) completely off the table in 20 seconds or less. You're going against the clock. After all the pistols & .22 rifles are done, the last part is for shotguns (obviously, the shotguns tear the pins up pretty bad). You
  21. Understood. Will do. Shows how long I've been away. Thanks Doc.
  22. Haven';t been on for a while. Been using my Saiga 12 in Bowling Pin matches with some success. It always gets a lot of interest from other shooters. Did the Pauly thing ever get settled?
  23. Once you get it broken in, enjoy it. These guns are a blast to shoot when running right. I had to do some work on mine, but she runs like a well oiled Russian machine now and I love it. Like others have advised, shoot it in factory condition, then, if needed, start working . There are plenty of threads here that will tell you what you might want to do. Congrats.
  24. When I converted my Saiga 12, adding a pistol grip-it seemed to really make the perceived recoil considerably less. I assume it's because I'm holding the grip and that's taking some of the energy of the recoil.
