    Polly Choke for S-20??

    I use my 410 for hunting and it would be nice to have the adjustable choke set up on it. My S20 I just use for fun and to get my feet wet in the customization of the saiga products. Wish I could get a small drum for it, say around 12 rounds.

    Have one on my S20 and my S12, nothing for the poor S410 though.

    found a sar-1 at last

    My SAR1 is what started the AK bug for me. Still have it and it still shoots perfect. The insides show that the rifle has been shot a lot. Almost time to replace hammer as it started mushrooming around the edges some years ago and now pieces are starting to break off the mushroom. Recoil springs are very soft but the action is unbelievably smooth. Amazing what many, many, many cases of ammo will do for an AK. For some reason I don't get the bug to shoot my Sar3 like the Sar1 and I have hardly even fired my Sar2. Very nice find and a great price. For that price I would add yet another Sar to my collection.

    Prefer on the end of the barrel?

    Polychoke on my S12 and S20 because I use them for hunting and wanted the versatility of the multiple choke settings. I run the Poly choke slotted version on all my hunting shotguns so the saigas are not special in that regard.

    1st time to shoot S12, I was not impressed.

    Like with most all new AK's a little automotive valve lapping compound on the rubbing surfaces and hand cycling it about a hundred times then a good deep cleaning and all will be great. I do this with all my AK's rifle or shotguns. My S12, S20 and S410 will shoot the lightest of light loads with no issues. The 410 and the 12 are not modified at all. I tell those who want to skip this step to get several boxes of turkey loads and have at it on the lightest setting. Does the same thing as the lapping compound just cost a little more in shells. Other option send it back and let them tell you it works perfectly.

    Why is this rivet here????

    took a look at mine and I think I would have tapered the rivet. Should not take much to insure reliable insertion.

    why no cool parts for saiga-20?

    Not if it is not a drum

    Promag 410 drums are in.

    Works great but wish they would have used the 12 round drum body of the 12ga. version in lieu of the 20round body. Seems like such a large housing for so few shells. Still very happy with it.

    410 drum exists, pictures to follow.

    got mine today, did not take me long to get it loaded up. Will take it out this weekend and see how she works.

    Thinking about buying

    you should run your cases through the resizer and this would be a non issue. I am seeing more and more people not resizing when they reload. I guess I am just old school, I resize every single round be it 12, 20, 28 or 410.

    Have these things died out already?

    When you consider how long the Saiga line has actually been available to the US market it would surprise you. It took a long time before it gained the popularity it enjoys now. I bought my Saiga 410 at a gun show not even aware of what Saiga was. Just an AK and 410 freak. The two combined made it a gun I had to have. found the receipt the other day. $175 OTD new in box, should have bought a bunch of them. Just did not know what I was getting into. Now I can get 30 round magazines for it. Never even crossed my mind when I purchased it. Just wanted a little hunting gun.

    Two new AKDAL parts from Tromix

    that is the same design I used in my Saiga 410 to block the magazines down. Works great, rattles a little but I figure with the gun going off no one is going to notice. Really glad to see some items coming out for this new toy. Going to be interesting to see how people mod this one.
  13. There is no utility right of way in your home. the only right of way is up to and including the meter. After that it is all your responsibility. there is absolutely no reason for them to come into the house unwelcome. They can turn it on and check it for you as a convenience but not out of necessity. The next step would be to lock off the gas system to your house and have you get the local municipality to verify that it is safe to turn back on, This can get very expensive to have a licensed contractor come to the house and put the lines inside your home under test, then wait for inspection by the municipality. Even if you go that route you still have the right to be there when the inspections take place. They really have no business inside your home without your permission.

    12 then 410 what about the 20

    I know the horse is dead rotten and stinky but I have to ask Any word on S20 drums? The 410 drums seem to be getting good reviews and I know the S12 drums work very well. My 410 drum should be here soon and that just gets the bug for a drum for the 20 going again.

    S223 conversion with AR mag well

    I bought this Saiga with the idea of doing the basic conversion (trigger group, stock, pg). I ended up doing the conversion before ever firing a shot out of it. I took it to Ben avery to see how it worked and was very pleased then a member on another forum mentions the adapter. My interest was peaked so I ordered the adapter, which came without any instructions or place on the web to look for them. I was a little nervous about just grinding on a new rifle to make an, unknown to me, product work. Very happy I did though. The versatility of having lots of mags available is nice. I see some even put in the bullet guide. I chose not to do this. I have not had one single feed issue so I most likely will not add the guide. I have done the bullet guide on my 7.62x39 saiga so it would run regular AK mags. That is also an easy and very nice modification. Still looking for an alternative for the 308 mag. Will be interested to see what your results are. I have a couple buddies wanting it done to their rifles but would like to see if it works as well on others first.
