  1. Thanks guys! It's truly a labor of love... or OCD. I'm currently turning the factory "rail" into swiss cheese by drilling and tapping three more hole in it to mount a full length 12" rail on top so I can mount MagPul backup sights. After I do this and I mount the flashlight/laser, she'll be ready for the prom and I'll post some more pics. It now feeds Winchester SuperX 000 and slugs like a champ from any of the three 15rd. mags. Any low power or easily deformed hull shell ("the Bears") do not perform well. But because of the cost of ammo, I'm also playing around with the idea of han
  2. Now if anyone has one with a BHO, a non-adjustable gas plug, and a modern gas puck... just to confuse things further
  3. My guess is that the receiver was a 1993 that Izhmash exported in 2001 with a modern gas tube, hence why it still has no BHO.
  4. Yarp... for better or worse, I enjoy the tinkering... getting it just so. And truthfully, what good is a weapon until you can get it the way you want it and 99.9% reliable.
  5. Or maybe the guy is just trying to figure out when the first one was imported or who all the importers are? Unfortunately I never bought a .410 so I can't play along Not a registry... just a history. The Saiga 410 has several quirks about it that are not really documented anywhere. That makes finding parts or the right parts difficult. This is mainly to help new owners figure out what they got based on what others have. After gathering some information I want to outline a generation break-down of what was offered and when for the Saiga 410, and possibly a guide to help in updating,

  7. The Saiga .410 is the first shotgun imported by Izhmash and their second AK-style weapon after the 7.62x39mm. But the question comes up about the generation dates and specs of the Izhmash Saiga .410. I was hoping we could compile a list of specs from our pool of .410s to get a better idea. Suggested format: Manufacturer Year (Prefix): 094 Importer: Big Bear Arms, Dallas, TX (1993-1994) Import Year: No stamp Gas Plug: Single Setting Gas Puck Style: Old Recoil Spring Dust Cover: None Bolt Hold Open: None
  8. Weird... I assumed the post-99s were "GEN2", with later the "GEN3"s adding the BHO. It may be that the importer got or had a 1993 receiver with the newer gas tube... dunno.
  9. Sorry, I was at work on break when I said that and had 5 people asking questions when I was trying to respond. I meant BHO Lever. It would be nice to have a LRBHO!! My lab can be a madhouse at times!! No Worries... I got excited I want to make one... but need to do more research.
  10. LRBHO? Are you sure? If you put an empty mag in and draw the bolt back, does it lock on its own?
