What mags are those?!


Those appear to be steel mags from Csspecs.

Christ, I've been a member here since 2007 and never added to the picture post? WTF? This is WAAAY overdue.

Work on this one was performed first by Cobra back in '07, then myself several years later, and finally rendered into its present configuration by Leland at Sierra Ordnance Company.

 

Current specs on this S12: paracord wrapped ACE folding stock attached to weld-on backplate, old FCG holes filled and smoothed, bolt profile job, RAM extended mag release, Izhmash pistol grip, JP R&L magazine guide, purple recoil buffer ( I know. It works fine.), K-var RPK handguard with lower forward rail section I made myself, SKS gas tube cover, Gunfixr gas plug, Krebs ghost ring rear sight aperture, elevated front sight post with clamp chopped off and welded in place, KNS crosshair front sight post, Tromix flash hider permanently attached at 18.25". Pictured with Izhmash 8 round mag and Csspecs steel mag.

These steel mags are simply awesome. Gotta get a few more.

This small piece of rail section is an easy DIY upgrade. All you need is a ~2" piece of pic rail and a couple of hex head screws of the appropriate length. Easily added to the K-Var HG retainer. Kinda surprised its not already an option. Also note the smooth undersurface of my front sight post.cool.png

I would also like to call attention to my sight setup because it is a bit different and I find it works quite well for me.

It is a Krebs rear ghost-ring and a Krebs front sight tower with a KNS crosshair sight post. While this may seem a bit cluttered at first glance I've found that in practice the crosshairs themselves disappear when you focus on the target with both eyes open. The sight tower "ears" superimpose over the rear ghost-ring. This just leaves the two concentric rings to line up. This seems quicker to me than trying to line up a post within a circle or notch.

 

It is very difficult to get a photo of what this looks like in person. This is the best pic I could get of this effect, although it is zoomed in a bit more than normal so the "ears" sit inside the ghost-ring instead of being superimposed. When it is properly shouldered and lined up, all you see is two concentric rings. No ears, no crosshairs.

This makes for a very fast target acquisition and is even effective on moving targets. I use this for skeet and trap regularly. It works great. Oh and you can also focus on the front sight (like on a rifle) in order to use the crosshairs for slugs. I need to experiment more with that to see what sort of drop I get.

Yes it's a $250 shotgun. No, I paid $550 for it. Yes, I did a lot of work to it. Sure, I can build you one just like it for $1500.

Ok, so I've added to my Legion-converted Saiga 12: a ten-round magazine, slotted barrel shroud, slotted muzzle-flash hider, and flashlight. Still not done!

The latest version of the Fitty%TACTICAL Saiga12......new additions include the CNC Warrior/Bonesteel folding stock and two Noveske K9 barricade stops.

 

A video review of the Noveske K9 stops are up on my YouTube channel and sadly I can no longer post my videos here anymore.

I'm pretty much done with this gun with the most recent working being sending bolt, carrier, and FCG to Cobra for an awesome job of profile and polish.  He also did a great job adding the left side charging handle.  The gun will now cycle the crappiest loads I can throw at it.

thumbhole stock is not defined in NJ therefore IMO it could still be considered a pistol grip....

Ive heard you say that a million times here and at that commi ran nazi forum njgf... a tru thumb hole stock u can not shoot with one hand... so it would not fit the criteria. Also the tapco kits that sit behind the action imo would be legal. Nj law states under the action in regards to a pistol grip. I would rather have a true thumb hole rather then a cheap and ugly tapco stock/pg combo hense why i just dont do that. Bye Vlad. Tell Jon i said hi.

the law is intentionally vague... it states one hand firing... you could technically fire just about any long gun with one hand... and the same with beneath the action.. if you think the Tapco pistol grip that sits slightly behind the action is legal you are out of your mind.. I know for a fact that a store in NJ had to stop selling the Benelli M4 because it had a pistol grip.. and that grip is off the back of the gun similar to the way the Tapco would sit... if you want to roll the dice you are more than welcome to... but I would not considering the track record of similar shotguns (the M4) and the anti gun climate in that state..
