  1. Sorry man, just came on here to update it sold locally. At $50 nobody wanted it for a few days, at $47 I got PM's on 2 message boards and a local guy off Armslist within an hour and a half lol
  2. Did just that.......got one of the fixed tubular stock models from K-var ordered, (2) factory 8rd mags, (2) factory 10rd mags, Magpul pistol Grip, CSS gas puc, and the ALG / Tromix trigger I already got a JTE comp muzzle brake and ill just need to get a US handguard to make it compliant with the OEM 8/10 rd mags
  3. I thought the DDI's were all American, not imported saiga parts. Pretty sure the AK's are American made but still using imported parts the shotguns are completely Chinese made (not Russian) and DDI just puts their name on them
  4. SOLD SOLD SOLD Parting with my DDI-12 shotgun so no longer need this. Paypal gift or add the 4%. All items will be shipped USPS priority with tracking and the standard insurance coverage it comes with. Items are cross posted ***shipping in CONUS only*** 1) Pretty much new Pro Mag 12rd compact drum for Saiga 12 / DDI 12. This one has the semi see through smoked rear cover. Got it from sportsmansguide 2 days ago, and it had 12 rounds fired through it today - $50 shipped (Saves you about $20)
  5. Well guys, it looks like it might be the gun itself, seeing that I just got home and noticed the extractor is completely broken off the bolt. It may have been already broken at the time I was trying the drum causing hangup when trying to charge the weapon.
  6. Trying to determine what might be going on. I just took my DDI-12 to the range with my new Pro Mag drum and a few other mags and the Pro Mag drum did not work. Whether it was fully loaded with 12 rounds, or half loaded with 6 rounds, when I would seat the mag and try to charge the gun, the carrier would stop short before fully chambering the round every single time. Before the range, I noticed when messing with the mag that the follower / dummy round is very hard to push down sometimes, and noticed the same when loading it with live rounds. Some of them loaded easy and others you really had to push down on the prev round hard for it to push the follower / dummy round down and off to the side in the drum. The mag seats / positively locks in place whether empty or loaded, so I am not sure whats going on. I do notice the rounds take a bit of a push to strip by hand. The feed lips really seem to be digging into them. Do these require fitting in this area? Here is a pick of where the carrier is stopping every time I try to charge the gun with the drum inserted
  7. Thanks for chiming in, Ill have to try to make it to an outdoor range somewhere in central FL that allows the public This particular indoor range only lets you shoot that exact federal birdshot i posted, and the other indoor ranges I go to only allow buckshot / slugs, no birdshot at all. So I really cant test other types of birdshot unless I find an outdoor range you do not have to be a member to go to
  8. Perfect, thanks. Just beamed my surefire x300 down the barrel and there are deff (4) gas port holes with light showing. No idea if they are the correct size, but the (4) go through
  9. from what I was able to see looking into the front of the gas block with the puck / regulator removed, it looked like it had (4) in a diamond shape. I could not see in there good enough to see if they were all drilled all the way through though. Using a flash light with my extremely limited view, none of them look like a clean hole that goes all the way through but the viewing angle gave did not really allow me to tell
  10. Nevermind guys, I saw a video on youtube of a guy who drilled / tapped his for a set screw to hold the the retention screw in place and he showed how to put it back together I do have another quesiton though, if taking it to the range this weekend with buckshot, should I start with the screw backed out a decent amount and only tighten it up for more pressure if need be?
  11. I just got back from the range for a quick test since getting my gun back from DDI........The good news is I had no issues with the action locking up like before sending it in. This range is a joke, you can ONLY shoot this particular birdshot shown below, or pay $10 for (5) rounds of federal buckshot. I wound up buying another 25rd box of the birdshot, and (1) 5rd box of buckshot (my ass still burns from the prison style rape) just to calm my racing mind. My gun would not cycle the birdshot for nothing, even with the gas on the furthest open setting (4 / large dot). It was the typical fire, manually rack back to eject spent shell, fire, repeat repeat repeat lots of people have experienced with Saiga / VEPR 12's and low brass loads. It shot the whopping 5 rounds of buckshot just fine so at least thats good, as this is an HD gun and realistically I never plan on putting birdshot through it after these tests. I will be back at the range Saturday with 125rds of Estate 00 so time will tell how that goes. What I did notice with the bird shot was the spent shell pretty much stayed in the gun (as shown) until I manually racked the action to eject it. On my VEPR 12, the shell at least always made it half way out the ejection port when the carrier would slam shut on it. This happened across both 5rd mags, an 8rd SGM, and a 12rd pro mag drum. Is that of concern? Besides the 5rds of buckshot, this gun has had ZERO heavy loads put through it, this pink birdshot crap below is all the gun has had ran through it since being taken brand new out of the box. Is my gun 100% diagnosed as under gassed at this point, or do I need to put more heavy rounds through it to break it in before expecting these light loads to run reliably, regardless of gas setting, and making that determination? The ammo What would happen after every single shot
