I had recently purchased a new Saiga 12 from www.K-var.com, the SGL12-08 imported by the FIME Group. Waited about a week and picked it up at my local FFL, took it out and shot it 2 days in a row and nothing but Federal High Brass was working, thought maybe a good cleaning would work and decide to take a look at the gas ports. Got it apart, looked at the gas ports, there were 3 gas ports visible from inside the gas tube and inside the barrel, so I used a paperclip to see if they were clear. Some how the gas port holes were completely filled with something, tried to clean it and there was no way
On a Saiga 20, 22". If I chop it to 18.5 or so, how much do I need ream out the gas ports? Is there a formula for this sort of thing; expand X for each inch of barrel, for example? I did do a search but didn't find anything relating specifically to port size. I assume there's already a tutorial on block removal and all that, but if you have a link handy it would be helpful.
