  1. They have them listed here, but the link is dead and you can't put it in the shopping cart. Maybe call them. http://www.armsofamerica.com/magazines/saigamags.html Hard to find, unless someone else out there has a source. So no 15 round 2 1/2" mags? Well, there goes my hopes for the gun, and commonality with my judge....sigh.
  2. What about the surefire 15 round magazines? Will they cycle the 2 1/2" shells?
  3. Bought a new .410 Saiga, and was very excited. Imagine my dismay when I went to fire it for the first time, and found failures to feed! The first shells I tried to fire were my friend's hand loaded 2 1/2" tri-ball loads (three .395 round balls). The rounds looked like they were fed up at too high of an angle to be properly aligned with the barrel, the bolt would then mash the rounds hard and deform them slightly. So I figured my problems must have been my friend's reloaded ammunition, even though he loads high quality shells. I decided that I had to test it with factory rounds to be sure. I bought some 2 1/2" tri-ball loads from Noble Sport (three .400 round balls at 1,200 fps) and was able to test these out earlier today. I had the exact same failure to feed problem as with my friend's hand loads. I am not sure what the deal is, but I am very upset and dissapointed so far. Maybe it's the magazine, but I am using the factory 4 round magazine. Could the magazine be one of the 3" only magazines? The gun was produced in 2009 with it being test fired in from the factory in 05/09 so I doubt the gun itself is one of the earlier 3" only versions. Any info or help would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  4. can Mike just make the cartridge an 8 gauge necked down to 12 gauge to fit the bore? so we'll get more girth?? and it'll still fit in the second run drums? I think that'd be great. and when is he coming round to Flagstaff so he can hold my baby boy at the ticker tape parade? thanks Mike!! Nice attempt at humor, but there are a LOT of 3" shells out there as it is a common size and most shotguns and shotgun mags can accept both, and it's not hard to do since the shells are basically the same size (in fact, many roll crimped 2 3/4" shells are as long or even longer than must star crimped 3" shells). Mike stated himself that he was considering making his drum able to accept 2 3/4" AND 3" shells right out the get go but then decided for some reason to start with a 2 3/4" drum only and then release a version that can accept both (can prob make more money that way). So I wanted to see how far along in the 3" version he's come so far.
  5. What are your thoughts, Mike? Had a chance to look into this at all yet? Thanks!
  6. I remember Mike stating that he could have made his drums functional for both 2 3/4" and 3" shells but he decided to limit them to 2 3/4" only???? Mentioned that instead he had planned to make a second drum that was also compatible with the 3" shells. Questions are twofold. #1. Why doesn't he simply make both types of shells function in his new mags? #2. When does he plan to release the 3" drum??
  7. I MUST have the 3" drums..... I must shoot the 3" buckshot shells!!!!
  8. I need the 3" drums!! I must shoot the 3" buckshot shells!!!! No 2 3/4" will do! It can't be that hard to convert those drums to 3", eh Mike?
  9. Mike, you said that when you are taking orders for the first shipment of 3" Drums that you will offer a similar discount price to first orderers as you did with the 2 3/4" drums, correct? Because I really want a drum, but I want the 3" model!! (24 pellets .30 caliber pellets from 3" #1 buck per shot!!)
