Picture Post, Lets see your Saiga 12!

Recommended Posts

Lets see your 12's! Mild to Wild! Lets try and get a post in some of the caliber forums showing your gun and a list of the mods you have done. I know alot of the new members like to see what can be done to modify there Saigas. Lets try and have no replys, if you need to ask a question or ooo-ahh, email or PM the poster. Maybe these can be stickyed or put in the New Member/Tech section if it pans out over time. I have the pic posts started here,7.62x39 & .223 forums and will start one in the 308 forum when I get one of my 20rd mags :lolol: . Bear with me, I'm on medical leave and I'm board to tears!


Pointer this is a good idea for a dedicated picture thread but there are so many beautiful weapons being posted with so many different mods and options there are sure to be well deserved compliments and good questions that deserve answers. I think we should also start a sister thread just for that purpose. People can

copy and paste the posted gun or at least the post number for reference and put all comments and questions there. They can be stickied together... hmm that sounds funnt...lol.

If anyone has questions about how to post a pic, send me a PM and I will try and set you straight. we need to sticky that too really...



I agree.The reason for this thread is pure gun porn and a refurance to a posted guns mods.With no replys in this thread it stays real clean without ending up in twenty different derections.A sister thread would be great for the questions.

In its final form:  

My daughter does modeling and she did a shoot this week with firearms. I let her borrow my Saiga.

This should be a good topic to make my first post in. I've been reading this forum a LOT since my registration. The FAQ has been a big help for me, so I gotta say thanks! :)


Anyway, here's mine.




It's pretty mild, but it'll suit my needs.


IZ-109 S-12 (19" threaded barrel)

NATO length KVAR stock

Tapco SAW grip

Tapco AK Galil handguard

Dinzag lower handguard adapter


Buffer Technologies buffer

AGP 10 round mags


I'll probably get one of Tony's cool shark brakes someday. B)


I was planning on sending the shotgun to Tromix, but the more & more I learned, I discovered that I was capable of doing the conversion myself. I'm a mechanic and have all the tools to do it.


I own several AK's, but this is the first time that I've ever gotten deep into one, meaning removing the FCG & such. It's really easy to do all of it.


It's a lot of fun to shoot. I think every AK fan should consider purchasing a S-12.

Well here's mine. Quite standard compared to some maybe. Has a Warsaw pact stock, TDI pistol grip, Rusmilitary flash hider and fore sight, ex WWII Mauser rear sight, Jerics LRBHO (and very good it is too!) and also his mag release extension (ditto). Barrel is back to the legal minimum here of 24" including the flash hider. Plus the Buffer Technology mag clinch


And I just love it!

Cool idea!

Ok, picture may not be the best (enlarge it), and it doesn't compare to some of the others, but I did it.........well Cobra vented my forearm.


-Tapco saw grip and T6 stock with an a recoil pad from AIM (don't remember manufacture). Doesn't really reduce recoil but is more comfortable.

-Bulgarian triggerguard and selector stop.

-Tapco trigger group

-Tromix shark brake

-Arclite JR has pressure switch (came with a barrel clamp for $5 from AIM)

-Russian folding vertical grip

-Forearm with weaver rail attached from pointer, modified by Cobra....vents and moved sling swivel to the side. Thanks dude!

-Green blackjack buffer

-Black AK sling


And coaching from Dinzag!


This site has great people with loads of knowlege. I'm glad I found it. My wife and bank acount on the other hand.............. :ded:

Here is most of my black collection. It is an old pic and is missing my tromix shorty. It is decked out. And missing the agp mags. I'll try to get a pic of it up. And a better pic of everything else. 6 Saiga-12's and 8rd mags in the pic, 3 converted, 3 unconverted. The rest of the guns was to take space.

The first one has a CobraVented Russian tactical forend, G2 FCG, Ace cut the dang tang and folder, fiber optic green bead, Rico light, Tromix gas piston and a BJB. My backup now sports a T-6 stock not shown in the photo and also has a CobraVented Russian tactical forend, G2 FCG, fiber optic green bead, Tromix gas piston and a BJB. Both of them will have Jeric's LRBHO installed very soon as well.

Didn't want to post until I had the 10rndrs installed, enough procrastinating....


Generic, DIY "Bolt-on" stuff...If nothing else, an example of easy stuff anybody can do.


Halo Rail,


ACE SOCOM w/internal hinge block,

TROMIX piston,

TROMIX Shark Brake,

TDI grips,

Tango Down rail covers w/ pressure switch indentations,

Eotech 552 holosight

Loads of assistance and patience from Cobra and others to guide me through....
