  1. if you look at the magazine itself, where the latch of the gun is supposed to engage it....

    you take a fine file, and ONE SWIPE AT A TIME take a swipe from the back edge of the built out nub, then one swipe from the underside of the built out nub  where the magazine release lever rests. like was said one at a time until it just barely fits and locks in.


    this is normal. take your time it will lock in nice and tight.


    edit to add - i threw my factory lynx magazine out. it caused many FTfeed issues due to poor tolerances on the metal feed lips.... i was also the factory warranty holder for saiga here in the US for some years, so i know a little bit of what im talking about.  look at the back nub of the mag on the back of its neck. thats what you shave...fitting is common and that is how you do it. go to loawez or home desposit and get a cheap 5 dollar file and use it carefully.....

    you may be tempted to take a round jewelers file to the front throat of the magazine, but dont...take it off the back of the neck where we are telling you to. DEFINATELY not off the front/throat or the magwell.....the front notch of the locking point of the mag takes most of the shock of recoil, so dont touch it.

    im trying to give this clarity so that others may see it another ten years from now and know how to properly address this issue

  2. when you get your gun, with the factory mag, try to physically wrench it in place by hand. some AKM types the rivets and pins that go through the gun are set slightly off, and will make a difficult magazine lockup happen, which will go away over time. dont modify anything until you muscle the mag into place a few times... if it wont muscle in place then do the above suggested maintenance. i had this problem with my last scratch build, and it was similar to a few saiga12 issues i saw over the years, and manhandling the mag into place actually fixed it without modification to the latch tab/mag release or magwell....


    edit - this is actually a good thing, you have a tight gun.....


  3. this i think, is mainly a lack of consequence of action understanding.

    what would the heritage of any of the victims or the shooters be 300 years from now??

    maybe one of these people would have cured cancer, or thier great grandchildren found the cure to cancer?

    moral decisions are ones from the heart and soul. this isnt being taught any longer, as it is no longer PC.

    happy holidays? for real? curse me out on the internet because its a box? for real (what do you do when i show up at your doorstep and ask you to repeat what you said to me).

    this started with the hippies and all the nonconformist crap that led to punk rock and then on to the tech boom where noone gives a shit about the reality of the world and thier fellow human being. my generation X is no exception.

    General Washington gave away cannon and arms....you dont see anything in history showing that some nutjob shelled a town with them....

    because im pissed off at the world and everyone and everything, does not give me the right to inflict suffering on others because of it. my conscience tells me otherwise, and its that is what is lacking in this society, and will continue to, until it is addressed.

    do your job, mom and dad,  brother, sister, cousin, friend.

    you are not alone in this world, and you arent the only one who is angry or lost at times....we all know what the issue is, but who the fuck knows how to fix it in a way in which everyone agrees.

  4. i am going on the record. where i am from in NY, we were the third largest per capita gun ownership county in the entire
    USA. then the handgun permit renewal thing happened, that was part of the downfall, then the taxes, then more gun laws that dont work, we left.; wherei grew up and was taught my ways, it wasnt 2 or 3 or 4. it was 20 30 40 that you even talk about. at the time i decided to leave ny, i think dutchess county ny was beat by somewhere in cali, and somewhere in texas, fourth place was penn somewhere.


    i love my country. i am not giving up my basic beliefs for some political crap or  some soccer mom up the street that a i never met.


    so i came to florida

  5. stand up straight with a stiff shoulder....its a combat shotgun

    get us a picture straight down looking into the stripped action. im almost wondering if the ejector is flawed.

    have you tried heavy loads or slugs in it?

  6. finally shot mine, went well, even ejection pattern. stupid buffer in it took a beating on lowest gas setting and 3" cannon rounds, will have to look at that more closely. op rod rusted after one week (i actually cleaned all of guns yesterday), be sure to check yours.


    i am definately going to change the safety lever, i hate it the more i look at it.


    i agree, the trigger is nice, but i did pull mine and the hammer and reworked them to my standard on a stone.


    i think it was a nice touch to use a crook instead of a spring


    still having a hell of a time putting the bolt carrier back in, guess im trying to do it like my saiga.....anyone else notice this?

  7. as you can see, all in all, its  good gun. this is a handpick with matching case an paperwork from classicfirearms. my gunsmith was stoked at the condition when it got here as well. check it out. well worth the extra 20 bucks for the handpick, and DEFIANTELY worth the matching paperwork and case to the serial # for the case and paperwork.


    grab em. im glad i did. thought i would share
