    Nobody buy any products from Mike now or in the future. High plains says so mmmmmkayyy. If he don't need or want em, neither do we. Mutating zombie effects may occur.....oh yeah, stay paranoid

    You guys paranoid much? MD is not going to stop production of a product that sells. Christ, he would have to follow through with the production of double stacks before that occured and that isn't happening anytime soon. Haven't you noticed that he popped his head in, posted a few pics and jumped back down the rabbit hole? Stay paranoid my friends... Paranoid....lol Mike said himself that he is highly considering stopping production of the md20 and sees no point why people would want them with the double stacks being released as "they will be better in every way and much more affordable" Besides, who wants only 1??

    I love my Saiga 12!

    Sounds like my saiga when I got it. I took out all the aftermarket parts that it came with, profiled and polished the bolt and carrier myself, lube, and kept shooting it. I was very close to pulling the gas block off as 1 of my 4 holes is ever so slightly covered by a hair, but ended up not needing to. It stopped giving me problems and I'm at 450 flawless rounds and counting! Shoots low brass of all brands. Thanks again to all the reputable and knowledgeable forum members who helped me out!

    Vietnam Vet

    Very well said. Even if the wounds aren't physical, they are definitely there! Ask a veteran, you'd be shocked to find the one who is willing to share his story. Pay your respect. Freedom is not free. Max years. M60 gunner. Boss status. Live n kickin. Thank god.

    That's awesome. Veterans love that you acknowledge that, especially the ones who wear it loud and proud! My father and his brother both served max term Vietnam and he absolutely loves it when people give him thanks and respect. Even a brief 5 second "thank you" makes their day!

    16" barrel preferred. Converted or non. Get back to me with full details about your rifle.

    now cycles low brass

    Yeah it definitely could be too narrow. I really had to dig that shell out. I don't have either of those but the csspec steel look nice and heard they operate great

    now cycles low brass

    500 rounds later and after some polishing work she is working great and spitting out federal 1145fps no problems. Since shooting last time I did the extractor mod and removed metal from the bottom lip, removed all the sharp edges and polished, I procededed to removing MORE metal from the carrier and bolt and re-polished both of them and also gave receiver rails a polish. I then lubed the carrier and rails lightly with brake caliber grease applied from a Q-tip. Any of that polishing could have done the trick, but I also swapped out the "nippled" CSS puck for the stock puck which I believe is what made the difference. Stock puck weighs about 17 grams more than CSS puck. This time around I cycled over 160 flawless low-brass shots 4 different brands (estate, Winchester, federal 1290& federal 1145 fps 7 1/2 shot). Last time shooting the federal 1145 wouldn't feed for shot on a maxed out auto plug and now I have 2 turns of adjustment left and it are it up just fine. Before I had a 160 round flawless feed I only had about 3 failure to ejects and 1 failure to feed(the shell jammed up top where the extractor foot sits, I have slightly removed and rounded the material better since) I'm stoked that I have been able to get her running good and had the time off work to get it done, hopefully she stays running this way. Pictures? Chaos tri rail, vented shroud, auto plug, CAA adjustable stock

    now cycles low brass

    I am starting to think that this 1 particular agp mag is giving me problems, BUT it may have possibly been from bent shells from hand cycling/reloading. If it is the mag can it be rebuilt? Is it worth rebuilding? .

    I don't think so either since this is my first self modded gun and I've been trying to take it easy but I think my work is done, for now anyways. .

    How Difficult is it to Customize the S12 and S20?

    I've had no previous hands on gun smithing experience til I became a saiga 12 owner and was edumacated by fellow saiga nerds. My saiga has been modded and started "running" from the work/different set ups I have read and learned about along with other advise. Just read. Just as anybody else would say. Seems to be a forum favorite everywhere.

    New saiga problems cycling

    First time taking the saiga shooting. Picked up some federal 1 1/8 oz, 1oz super x slugs and estate 00 buck which I had the most problems with. I was having more failure to feeds than fTE's. I have 4 gas ports which are aligned just okay, tax 47 auto plug, reduced recoil spring, CSS puck. The auto plug adjustment is maxed out. I'm assuming I have more problems. Is over sizing the gas ports overkill if it is not what MY saiga needs? What can I do tomorrow to get this thing running like a champ.

    Anybody have a link for re-profiling bolt, carrier, and hammer?

    New saiga problems cycling

    How common is it to mod this area to resolve feeding issues? I have all tools to do so. Or should I wait to shoot a couple more times? http://www.dinzagarms.com/downloads/polishing_saiga-12.pdf

    New saiga problems cycling

    This is 1 way shells fail to feed. Caused by the agp mag? The shell hull is wedged between the two humps. Is it safe to lightly remove metal from either of those humps?

    Evlblkwpnz; You own countless saigas, how many of them required gas mods?

    New saiga problems cycling

    I got the plug and gas tube really clean and took it shooting. Css puck,tac47 auto plug(was bottomed out shooting federal 7.5 shot 1 1/8 oz), stock spring was put back in and the rails were lubed. I have also done a light polish on the bolt,carrier and hammer. The best it did with the light loads was 9 consecutive shots! But only once. Failure to eject and to feed. The shells get stuck and stop the carrier motion. Should I follow up on the tutorial to polish the barrel lip where shells feed? I had much better results shooting 00B & slugs. Only a couple failures after I backed the auto plug out to re-adjust for the heavier loads. I was actually impressed this time after it continued cycling slugs without failures. Any tips for the mean time? I'm going to stock up on heavier shots and hold off on modifying.....until next time. All 4 gas ports are clear of build up, the 4th hole is sitting just a hair behind the gas block......
