In its final form:  

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

Day 1 with My new Saiga 12. It is facotry stock, hasn't been fired (yet). I got it today from Greg at Carolinashooterssupply.com. Greg is great to deal with and patiently answered my questions. I shot a Tromix Saiga 12 a few weeks ago, ans had to have one of my own. Mine is no Tromix, but I will be working on it!! The other pic is my 2 AGP "Build it yourself" 10rd. mags. For $5 more, they would've sent them to me assembled, but whats the fun in that??

An updated version of mine, the ladybugs add a nice touch, yeah?







Polished/re-profiled bolt, carrier and hammer, opened up the 3 ports to .093. No FTE's after about 500 rounds through that clear surefire 10 rd, factory 5 rd and the MD-20. Cut the barrel from 19" to 18.0625" (18 1/16).



Still gets all the attention at the range, 'specially when a full MD-20 goes on it.




:killer: Most addictive weapon I've ever fired.

Here's my Saiga-12: G2 trigger group, Krebs custom axis pin plate, SAW style grip, AR style stock, UTG quad rail, AR-Stoner broom handle, 12&10 round mags, BSA 30MM red dot(saving for the EOTech), Poly choke 2, Bolt carrier and bolt has been glass bead blasted and nickel plated, entire gun has been stripped and double gun kote on the interior of the receiver and exterior of the gun, also had 2 more gas ports drilled in the barrel to bring it up to 4 gas ports, and a recoil buffer. Pure 2nd Admendment bliss.

The "Vepr-12 Molot" shotgun is made on the basis of the Kalashnikov light machine-gun (RPK), produced for the shells of 12/76 gauge. "Vepr-12 Molot" (VPO-205, 430 mm barrel) is a multi-purpose semi-auto shotgun, from other versions of Vepr-12 it differs with an available detachable flame arrester installed on the barrel muzzle part and with a mechanism blocking the trigger and eliminating from the possibility of shooting, when the stock is folded up.


Original Vepr-12 Molot (VPO205) made by VYATSKIEPOLYANY MACHINE BULDING PLANT (Molot) was bought due to better quality then IZHMASH production.

Modifications were made:







Molot muzzle Attachment (Cylinder-choke) - Flash Hinder painted Duracoat Ultra Flat Tactical Extreme Gray (lower) &

Custom (two chambers) Muzzle Break-Compensator painted Duracoat Ultra Flat Tactical Black(upper).




Detailed pictures are here :)

Here is my CSS supplied Saiga-12, with the TAPCO Dark-Earth furniture. I wonder why they didn't call this color Desert Tan or something like that. Dark Earth it Ain't !! I added a side-quik-mount 978, and a 4 way red/green dot sight.


Got some extra 10 round mags and a v-plug to put in yet, but this is mine. One photo of the gun, and two of the sight and mount.

Well as I got off to a rocky start ( less asked the better for all of us .) I thought I would try to patch things up by posting one of my conversion jobs .


This little beaut being a personal build unlike a few of the conversions I have done for friends.


So there ya have it feel free to give me advice or pick it apart , choice is yours, and this one is still a work in progress.



Parts used, :

Chaos tri-rail

Tapco g-2 trigger ( Tromix cut & polish from Carolina shooter's supply ), CSS bolt on trigger guard

Cobra heat shield

Magpul AFG / Magpul rail covers /Magpul CTR stock

ACE internal trunnion and Ar style folding stock adapter

Enidine "shot stock"

Chaos US gas puck

Houge AK grip

and a 20 round drum from MD Arms


still undecided on muzzle device and if I will upgrade the tri-rail to a quad.( with H&K style sights. )

REALLY needing those double stack mags, Mike! "wink wink, nudge nudge" o.k , I'll shut up now..
