  1. Absolutely perfect, just ordered two of them, thank you so much for the information
  2. I have a couple hundred 2 1/2" shells that I'm interested in shooting in the Saiga 410. I haven't tried shooting them out of the factory magazines which are designated for 3 inch shells. Does anybody know if they will work in factory 3 inch magazines? Are there any 2 1/2 inch magazines available? If so, please let me know were I can find them because I have looked extensively and not found any on the Internet. Thanks all.
  3. I just purchased the kushnapup kit and I have to admit that I don't see any way to make it work. The screw hole for the front forearm does not line up with the screw hole in the kushnapup. So there's no way to attach kushnapup frame to the barrel. See attached a photo. Any suggestions? I just found a thread that addresses this same situation so, it looks like I have a lot of grinding and fitting to do.
  4. I want to do a bull pup conversion and it requires a unconverted shotgun to start with. I want to use the 410 because it's primarily going to be used by my wife for home defense. At the moment I have a converted 410 but it is awkward for her to maneuver in tight spaces. I'm not interested in buying a new one because the prices have skyrocketed from the mid-300s to the mid-600s or more. If anybody knows of a bullpup conversion that can be used on a converted shotgun then that would be great.
  5. I know this is an old thread but, ATI has this one available Sorry apparently I can't post the picture of it
  6. Here's a short video of our converted Saiga 410. I posted some pictures earlier. It ended up costing a bit more than I expected but considering how well it shoots it was really worth the effort to do the conversion.
  7. I'm looking for a 20gauge for a project that I'm doing for my wife. The 12gauge is too much for her and the 410 that I put together isn't quite enough. Since I am disabled, She did most of the work converting the 410 and I'm sure she'll do most of the work this time also. Hopefully I can find something. Thanks all
  8. Finally got to shroud back with the holes drilled in it! Looks great I think, here's a picture the only other thing I might consider doing is drill some holes in the forearm
  9. I've seen this advertised in a few places and I'm wondering if it will do the job for the Saiga shotguns. I'm tempted to give it a try but was wondering if anybody has any experience with it. http://www.froglube.com/roothome.htm
  10. I'm going to try shooting some stronger ammunition and see what happens. I definitely agree that polishing-reprofiling the internal parts will make a lot of difference. I don't believe I can put it back to the sporting configuration even if I wanted. I don't believe converting it has any effect on how it cycles. Anyway, I thought I was putting it back to 'normal' when I converted it.
  11. So what you're saying is the factory plug has no relief cut for the #1 one position? We checked the ports with a paperclip and they seemed to be fine. I am pretty sure we followed the instructions correctly and a settings were easily readable. Per the instructions the puck has to the letters facing the piston. I suspect that either the ammunition was not 'hot' enough, or it needs to be broken in more. I am going to order some OOO' or OO' shells and hopefully that will do the trick.
  12. I might have a problem with my 410. On the first outing we shot 40 rounds in Remington #6 express long-range and 50 rounds of Winchester #6 expert game loads (all 3"). Nothing would cycle on the #1 setting. So I chalked it up to it being a brand-new shotgun needing breaking in. But after putting 90 rounds through it it wasn't happening. Everything shot just fine using #2. I removed the plug-in checked and there seems to be plenty of 'powder residue' in tube so the ports are not clogged.When I removed the Factory Gas adjustment knob I noticed that there was no notch for setting #1 I'm attaching a picture, maybe somebody can tell me if it's supposed to be like that. Anyway, I ordered the MD ARMS V Plug and Gas Piston (Plug). Went back out for another test. And we shot: #4 3" Winchester Sup X High Brass (50ea): #4 3" Golden bear (5ea) Slugs 3" Silver Bear (8ea) #6 3" Remington Express (25ea) Using the new MD Arms plug-in piston, NOTHING would cycle on #1 (FTE, couldn't even tell if the slide moved) or #2 (FTE, stove piped) only the #4 Winchester would cycle reliably using #3, everything else needed to be set at #4 for reliability. Maybe I am just using weak ass ammo!
  13. Hello all, Not sure where to post this but here goes. I've never done this before but I decided to give it a shot. I am paralyzed Vietnam veteran and basically bedridden due to an automobile accident in 2003. I look for projects to keep my mind occupied and in a positive place. My wife and I work together, she does most of the physical stuff (and takes care of me) and I take care of everything else that I can using the computer. Thanks to a voice recognition program I can navigate my way around the Internet and do research and get information from various sources, i.e. this forum! We just finished converting a .410 for home defense and it came out just fantastic! Now that it's finished I am looking for our next project. Since my wife and I are basically on a fixed income (my Social Security check) I'm hoping that somebody has a used Saiga laying around that I can purchase for a reasonable price or, they would like to donate for a worthy cause Thank you all for your consideration, Paul (Themajickman)
  14. Yes all the failures were FTE. Worked extremely well on setting 2. I don't think I had any real powerful 3" shells so I'm going to try again with some hot loads and see if it makes a difference. I'm also ordering a MD ARMs adjustable gas plug to see if that helps. It's real hard finding any 3" shells around my area except at Wal-Mart, and their selection sucked. It's becoming more obvious that the 410 ammunition is both expensive and hard to find. If you buy it online the shipping makes it ridiculously expensive
