  1. I've had time to reflect on good advice I found here. The Fury 1 upgrade is essentially in maintenance mode now, and is shown in the pic with a Bulgarian AK-74 (No-Dak Spud) for reference and size comparison. It weighs about 9.5 pounds by my guess. I should go weigh it, but I was already used to carrying an M-60 back in the day. I've tried many loads and it is rock solid with all the slug or buck I can find moving faster than 1250 fps. I did adjust the set on the TAC-47 a bit for more consistent performance with a magazine of mixed manufacturer's ammunition. That was about 1/2 turn in (righty-tighty). From 1250fps to 1600fps I've seen no performance issues. The TAC-47 does exactly as-promised, and well. Extraction and Ejection are consistent and clean. Recoil is positive but not harsh: it is more a long impulse stroke. Oddly, it really shoots the Olin milspec buckshot very well. That is commonly available here in the Academy Sports stores @ $4.99 for a box of 5. Good plinking and HD ammo. I have not tried any shot yet, but after another 50-100 rounds of solids, I 'll see what the TAC-47 can do. I'd like to know how BB and 4-ought performs for curiosity, but the house load is buck. The scope is an inexpensive 1-4x (good, not great) with a Chevron "ballistic" reticle. At 4x, the optics are clear and sharp, and the objective can be adjusted for focus. I can hit 8" plates at 75 yards 5/5 from a rest or prone. I have not adjusted to 1x to check POI change- I leave it in 4x for distance work. If I change ammunition, I can use the chevrons consistently to hold over for the slower ammunition, as I zerod the gun with the fast Winchester 1620 fps slug. This gives a decent 50y zero, and POI is about 2.5" low at 75y. I have to lift off the cheek weld slightly to use the scope as-shown. The straight bore/stock line makes that painless, but less precise I suppose. I have not zeroed the iron G3-style sights yet, but they are easy to see through and probably good for buck at household distances. We did some initial smoothing of the bolt/carrier assembly per your instructions here. I may go back in and smooth any nicks I find at 500 rounds. So far, the gun has not shown any metal distress. Parts recap- Most if not all of the kit is from CSS The stock and grip are Magpul from my local guy The fixed sights are Chaos, mated to the OEM and handguard rail sections. They are below my plane of view in the scope, and the QD on the left side of the scope lets me ditch it quickly for iron sights. Failure- at about 150 rounds service, the gun failed to Extract. It was locked up, so I cleared the magazine and carefully ran a dowel into the muzzle and determined I had an empty husk on the breech. I fidgeted a bit, and then realized that tilting the gun resulted in some rattling in the gas block. I removed the TAC-47 and discovered the CSS puck had failed into three pieces. My gunsmith picked it out carefully: there was no internal damage to note, but he did flap the gas tube lightly. The puck appeared to have suffered a material failure I'd associate with a grainy casting. They sent me a new one quickly, asserting I was first of a kind. The new one has a different surface appearance overall compared to the original. I have another 100 rounds through it without any FTEx/FTE. Changing the rock-n-lock magazines is not fast, so I am not convinced it's a 3-gun candidate. Even my 1980s vintage 1100 is faster. The gun is smooth to shoot for a long session. And if I get the chevron holdover right for 200 yards, the sound of hitting a metallic silhouette ram with a big slug is very satisfying! I've been traveling a bit, but I appreciate the good advice and coaching I got here. I now have a hankering for a Saiga in .410. Help me, Obi-Wans. And thank you, again. Hm- pic did not "attach". I'll go figure that out. My apologies.
  2. 07/06 UPDATE: Need to sell this quick, so price dropped by $15 to $50 (shipped)! Hi Guys, I am selling a lightly used Carolina Shooters Supply manufactured Saiga-12 Bolt-on Tactical Sight Set that my buddy had on his S-12 for not very long, before he had H&K style sights welded on by a gunsmith. They are in great condition and come with everything that they came with from CSS. Please, check out their product page for more information on these. I am asking $70 $50 shipped (via USPS Priority Mail to Continental US). Payment through PayPal. I package well and ship quick. I've sold plenty of stuff here before and never had an unhappy buyer. First person to post "I'll take it" and PM me, gets the sights. Feels free to ask any questions and thanks for looking! Pics:

    Cannot fit pistol grip on converted Saiga

    I was just finishing up my conversion I bought the CSS conversion kit, I bought a Hogue grip for my S12 and I cannot for the life of me get it on. I have taken off the trigger guard and just tried to attach the pistol grip to it, nothing works. The pistol grip lug on the trigger guard does not line up with the screw. Has anyone had this problem, any help is appreciated. The second picture is where the screw is supposed to line up, and it is not lining up.
  6. I just received two of the small versions of the AR forearms to go onto a 7.62x39 and 5.45x39 and as always the service was outstanding. Anyways when I installed them on both weapons the clamp that goes around the barrels does not clamp down tightly over either barrel. The forearm is pretty stout and seems nice and sturdy but there is a small amount of play at the barrel clamp, I'm wondering if this is normal and the way they are designed. I just wanna make sure that I didn't get the wrong size by mistake. It seems that as long as the back of the forearm stays put and does not work it's way loose then the extra play at the front clamp will be actually beneficial since it will not interfere with the barrel expanding and contracting as it heats and cools. I'm really looking foreword to getting out and putting some rounds though these guns with the new AR forearm. If it preforms as I think it will it will really be a God sent as far as fairly lightweight and heat proof forearm that allows a much better forward hand position to mitigate recoil and swing the gun (competition style grip). I'm going to attempt to put a thorntail flashlight mount from haley strategic on it too so I'm let you guys if that works out as well.

    new s12

    hey everyone. got a "like new" s12 on gb by "accident" a few weeks ago. i have really been lurking on the forums since before christmas. i did a simple conversion with some parts from css (+1, thanks greg). i got the tromix diy trigger guard, the modified g2 fcg, and the internal receiver block from him. i got the saw grip and hand guard from mulletman. and i got a tromix skeleton stock on the way. I've loved shooting this gun before the conversion and am stoked to get the stock and be ready to give'r again. here's my parts and price breakdown s12- 545 (+45$ shipping to alaska) for 590$ tapco saw grip + tapco hand guard for 50$ tromix skeleton stock for 60$ tromix diy trigger guard, css internal receiver block, and tapco trigger for 130$ and thats a total of 830$ holy smokes that adds up fast. but i am glad i have done it and its worth every penny. it was fun and i learned a lot while doing it and reading through the forum and watching all the videos. http://forum.saiga-1...age/6341-s12-1/ http://forum.saiga-1...age/6342-s12-2/ (somebody please help with the pics?)
