    S12 FTF

    Hi all, long time no see. Since we last spoke me Saiga has been in the case. However this past weekend I took it out for prep of a weekend shoot. The trouble is I had 4 FTF out of 20 rounds; 10 were 2-3/4 bird shot, and 10 were 3" triple buck. Funny thing all 10 of the 2-3/4 fired and cycled without issue however 4 of the 10 3" had a light primer strike. I don't know why. I have installed JTE PERFORMANCE POWER HAMMER SPRING /MAIN SPRING FOR ALL SAIGA AND AK VARIANTS, this replaced the factory tqiated wire spring. Any answers as to why this may happen or solutions. Maybe just bad run of rounds? Oh and I did try to re-cycle them and fire, no dice
  2. Hello all I am hoping you guys can point me in the right direction because good glad has failed me. I've notice a number of saiga what what is can call and enhance manual bolt hold open, the one you repress when the bolt os in the fully back possition. As far as I can tell it it ode tial to factory with the exception of the small bar that protrudes from the bottom of the weapon has what I can only see crib as a curved flat bottom button as opposed to the classic single flat bar sticking out the bottom. I don't look at it as coat tic just simply am improvement on the design that allows for a more firm depression of the piece be a sue it. On tact more of you thumb. The closestate I've found is one that says it is for a non converted non pistol grip unit in the link below: http://www.saiga-12.com/Parts.asp

    manual bolt hold open levee qiestion

    Hehe The weapon is done, hence why I haven't posted, but wanted to check on LRBHO and where it is in production or a diy from a forum member. I will post pictures I should have e'ssaid it was drugs or alcohol that lead to that first post, of which I do neither. Led to the post, I do neither. Had to been half asleep ...maybe all the way to sleep

    manual bolt hold open levee qiestion

    Jesus H, been forever since I thought to log on but I suspect this is a result of a exceedingly late night gunsmithing which should have ended in sleep. Not unintentional gibberish. Wish I'd seen it earlier but logged in a while to notice it. Forgive my prease

    Saiga 12 cosmetic fix

    Need help from the forum guys and gals on something. I had a friend cut my square for my saiga rear grip nut hole. He did a fine job but in the process he slipped and put a knick about 1/16" of an inch deep and about 5 mm long (if even that) next to the grip once it was installed. Meaning I have a small blemish now that the weapon is completely back together. Now to the question: Short of getting someone to weld in the cut and grind down the excess what other options do I have? Like is there a compound that I can use to fill it? I.e. an epoxy compound? If it helps I'm looking to get the weapon coated (plasti, parkerized etc. Still deciding. Again thanks in advance for any help you may be able to lend.

    Oh I forgot, I have access to solder and associated tool for these types of small divets...anyone have experience with type of filler question is, will the duracoat or cerakote adhere to such a compound?

    Saiga 12 cosmetic fix

    I'ive done just that to for blemishes on my ar and it work great. In my case though the guy used a grinding wheel on a dremel and knocked it far enough down to creat a deep best as I can describe a cut. Happened so fast I can't blame him but that doesn't take away the fact it is there. If you stick a toothpick in it to gauge how deep it is it goes down a 1/16 or 1/8 inch. Since I intend to coat it I can only imagine it will show more apparent more once done. I'm looking in the metal impregnated epoxy because that seems the best route, thanks for the patience but of hasn't asked I would have never heard of or thought of it. Thanks again all To the poster below a ralize these guns are supposed to show wear and tear (see the circle made by the safety, which doesn't bother me. I would just touch it up with a sharpie marker and call it good I've done just that to for blemishes on my ar and it work great.

    Rather than start a new thread which coat would you suggest: cerakote, dura coat or parkerize? I know all have their pluses and minuses but of the three if it was your saiga which would YOU choose? LIke I said I value the opinion of this forum.

    Saiga 12 cosmetic fix

    ok...it's roughly 1/8" Long if that helps. In the end guys I'm looking to get the gun coated in either cerakote or something in the same line (suggestions are welcome). I really like the look and feel of the coating that has a textured feel but I don't know the name of it. Bondo I assume would not adhere to such a coating or mabye it will, I claim ignorance on the subject, I simply do not know. But please take my qustion seriously, seems every time I come here for advice I'm met with discord or flat asshattery. I respect that you all have miles and miles of experience that I can only hope to get to one day. But it will never happen if all I get is negativety ever time I ask a question. It's easier to just stop asking.

    VEPR 12 LRBHO swap into a S12

    Let me preface by saying I used the search function to try to get my answer and while some things are cleared up I'm still not sure I completely understand the information given. So to the question. Would it be possible to purchase a LRBHO kit from VEPR and drop it into a S12 with minimal effort, or even maximum effort if that what's it takes. I can get me smith to do it. But the question is...is it possible? Thank you for the patience with my ignorance on the subject.

    VEPR 12 LRBHO swap into a S12

I have the following markings on mine: SAIGA-12 (obviously) 12/76 18,3 Bolt has a 530 stamped in it CANTA-12 and I believe a seriAl number ending in 14530 Those are all on the outside of the weapon, if you k ow where exactly I can look to find the model number be it I side or out I'd appreciate the info.

    Question on rear stock handle

    Hi all, I recently purchased a FAB defence rear handle and when it came it had as best as I can describe a "T" shapped nut (though it has two 30 is degree beveled cuts in the vertical portion of the T). It's made to be recessed, lays flat on the inside of the weapon and the threaded nut extending out from the gun at a slight angle, pullin the grip towards the trigger guard as its tightened up. The other option is to get a traditional grip a simple nut inside the gun and a long bolt going up through the handle and bound by the nut. Mine is set up this way (but i really want to use this grip i just purchased) but I need to modify the hole to accept the new grip. I say this because the ergonomics of the grip os the perfect fit for my hand and fits with the feel of the weapon. Long(ish); story short I would like some advice on how best to cut the square hole needed. Make a stencil of the required square hole and use a cutting wheel of my dremel & fine file to perfect square or is there a better way. I tried to upload a pic but camera was to high resolution. It's basically a standard nut with a 2 stage bevel. Right now my gun has simply a drilled hole for the handle. I just want to make sure I'm doing right before I go cutting on the gun to get to nut to fall in and I can grip installed.

    Question on rear stock handle

    Really? Thanks for the info...could you point me in the right direction, not out of laziness on my part but more that you guys know more than me Never mind! Found it! Thanks a pile man Found a pic of the nut: http://www.carolinashooterssupply.com/product_p/css-grip-nut.htm

    Question on rear stock handle

    Really wish I could post pics so you guys could better understand my delima.
  16. After speaking with mako I ended up getting the Recoil-Compensating Collapsible Buttstock Kit for AK-47/74 part number SBT-K47FK. They said the spring was stronger for the S12 recoil. However if you'd rather have the tube only and put you own butt stock you can purchase the recoil reducing tube by itself; part number SBT-K47. I can verify it is better for Saiga 12 compared to the GL-SHOCK. I have the GL-SHOCK on my ar and it perfect for that.
  17. Mako makes many different types of stocks and I was wondering if you would be so kind as to tell me that mako part number you purchased. Thanks in advance.

    Question on a part

    Ok one last question today, promise. I've been looking at the show off thread to about half way point. My question is that some have what looks like an extra pinned piece on the left side of the weapon. Just opposite the charging handle, on the other side. Most look like they are stamped and have what looks like a raised "t", low tail, long horizontal T. Like this one Anyone able to identify what that is?

    6 position gas plug

    Great info, as simple idea as I've seen but I wouldn't have thought about it without you input. Thanks

    6 position gas plug

    I installed a 6 position CCS gas plug kit and the first two mags cycled @ setting of 3. Now I see on CCS website that 6 is the low bras (I.e) cheap ammo but today 5 rounds jammed on pos 3 so luck ran out. I mean everyone of them. Silly question should I utilize the 6 position or should I try each setting till it recs properly. Alternately I could reinstall the 2 position plug. All help would be greatly sppreciayed. Thanks

    Saiga 12 bolt and slide polish

    So I've gotten as far as stripping the black coating from the slide and bolt. Now I'm looking for your collective knowledge on how to get it to shine ( I mean it shines now but not like choming it) can someone with experience lend their expertise and give me tips. As always thanks in advance for the advice. 1200 grit sandpaper and finish with 2000 or start with 600 and 800 and work my way up. Pending a generous poster to get to the desired shine...what is the best way to keep it that way. OR, can some or all of you point me to someone who can chrome without breaking the bank. One other question...dremel while time saving it just couldn't get into the truly tight spots. They are very very few but it there a chemical that could strip the rest prior to a mirror polish. I value your opinions so please don't short change me with a "look it up. It's that fastest way to shy me away from the forum which I don't want. I like it here. I know search is my friends but you guys are friendlier. Al heard flattery gets you somewhere I hear... DR
