    SDS Lynx 12 help

    I just bought an SDS Lynx 12g shotgun (Chinese Saiga 12 knockoff) and want to put a milsurp Hungarian AMMS underfolder stock on it. I have access to a drill press and mig wilder and various metal cutting tools. How hard of an install would this be? Stock info. https://ak-builder.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=30635Thanks for any help.

    Lynx shotgun/Kushnapup compatibility

    I just bought a Lynx 12 shotgun and was wondering if anyone knows how easily/difficultily/possible it would be to convert it to a Kushnapup stock. If this has already been addressed I apologize for starting a new thread. I searched for an answer but didn’t find one. I know the location of the trigger can/will be a problem as it’s not where an imported Saiga trigger would be. Thanks for any help.

    Bigger, thicker, harder - Saiga M Series

    Bought this same gun a little while ago, and I really like it. Looks gorgeous, very comfy, not a bad shooter either. When I finally got it to a nice range with benches and sandbags I was reliable hitting a 6" circle at 100 yds, using just irons. I put a 4-12 redfield revenge scope on it, using a Kalinka low pro BP-02 mount. This mount is perfect as it sits directly over the center of the receiver, and is quite low, yet not so low that I can't remove the rear part of the rifle for cleaning. Using cheap TulAmmo, from a bench, I'm getting 4" groups at 100 yds. Pretty happy. Only two complaints. First, I found the trigger pretty mushy. There's a good amount of take up before there's any real resistance in the trigger pull, and after that it seems there's a 5mm range of trigger pull where there's no discernable break. The gun will just fire somewhere around there. Makes consistent shooting a pain in the ass sometimes. Two, even with the large wood screw in the stock fully tightened, the stock still "wobbles" up and down inside the receiver. When I'm holding the rifle this will sometimes cause shooting hand to rotate the entire stock down about 3/4 of a centimeter. I can deal with it but I hate the feel. Any ideas on dealing with these two issues? Will a new FCG from Tapco be superior/crisper? Or do I need to get a nicer FCG? And how do I keep that stock from moving. As far as I can tell there is only one point of connection with the receiver and it's not getting any tighter. Thanks, and good shooting.

    Scope opinions for Vepr. 308

    So the MI-AKSM doesn't quite sit in the middle of the gun? That's a shame. I'm wary of UTG stuff since it looks so cheap and flimsy. I was also contemplating a Kalinka BP-02 low profile mount. As for the scope I found a nice deal on a Leupold VX-2 3-9x40. Going to use some Warne Maxima 1" weaver rings. Also, how much more of a gun would I get upgrading to a Vepr Super 308? Built in muzzle rise compensator and comes with a nice scope mount. Well, thanks for the info!

    Scope opinions for Vepr. 308

    Thanks for the opinions guys, keep em coming. I've been looking for .308 specific optics with BDC but they're all in the $500+ range. Right now I'm leaning towards a redfield 4-12X40 Revolution scope with Accu-Range. It's $260 and I've seen nothing but great reviews on it, and it has generous eye relief to boot.

    Scope opinions for Vepr. 308

    Hi all, back again with some noob questions. I am contemplating buying a .308 VEPR in the near future, probably one with the 20 inch barrel. I'm primarily getting it for ranging shooting, and because I absolutely fell in love with my 7.62x39 VEPR. I live in the Colorado Rockies and there is a large hunting culture here, so I'd also like a rifle that I could trust to kill an animal at 300-400 yards. I am not an experienced shooter by any means, but I'd like to get better. So my question is, would I be better served buying a kalinka 4-12x PSOP scope, or going with a midwest industries AK scope mount and a decent redfield 4-12x? I generally shoot 180 gr. remington rounds, but recently bought some 150 gr milsurp at a great price. I'd like to be able to shoot a 6 inch group at 400 yards. I assume the rifle is capable of that, but would scopes under $300 USD be capable of that and is that a reasonable goal for myself as a shooter?

    Mossberg 500 mystery

    Just got home and looked at it. Etched in the left side of the barrel it says, "Chambered for 2 3/4 and 3 in shells. 12 GA. - 18 1/2 in. Accu Choke ®". All in the same type font. I'll work on a pic.
  9. So I just bought a used Mossy 500 from a classified. At first I thought it had the normal 18.5" stubby barrel that you see on the home defense models. On closer examination, I found it had threading for a choke, and was considerably heavier than my other 18.5" barrel that came on my Maverick. Any idea what I got? I haven't seen a barrel like this advertised for sale anywhere, and have only found one mention of the barrel in a 2+ year old post about them being on sale at havlinsales. Where did they come from and where did they go?

    WTB Saiga 308 Ver. 21

    I've been looking to buy one of these beautiful guns ever since I saw a picture of it. I have the 7.62X39 version of this rifle, with the diagonally cut receiver back and wood thumbhole furniture. However, I haven't seen one for sale outside of a few, expired, 2 year old links. Checked RAA and MAA, Centerfire Systems and Classicarms, nothing. Any headsup would be great, looking to spend no more than $600.
