Here is my shotgun that is in need of updating. Something about the conversion is just lacking.

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.

HG has been modded with a Velcro patch for attaching the remote switch when running a light.

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.

Got my annual bonus from work yesterday: a Saiga-12, converted by Legion, pictured with Triple-K leather 4-box/100-round ammo carrier and Spartan 00-Buckshot.

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.

Krebs has the sights your looking for. And your safety stop is upside down.

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!
