Here is one of the two conversions I did for the first time this past week. I have only known about the Saiga 12 for about a month, and in that time i have done a hell of alot of reading here, and decided to take the plunge and get one myself. A buddy of mine also figured he would jump on the train, which is why I converted two :). Ive never worked on a gun before, but this was a nice project, and Im almost bummed that its coming to an end. I may have a port enlargement in my future though. The gun fired pretty damn good with the 1325 FPS 1-1/8th oz #6 shot, but it choked pretty bad on the 1oz #8 winchester stuff pretty bad. It probably FTE 1:5 or so. I also need to do the mod in the picture below because I had 3 or 4 FTFs as well because the shell got snagged by that sharp edge, preventing it from going all the way in.


Mod to fix FTFs that I need to do:



Here are pics of my monster :)

My S12 has been stockless and gripless since I moved to SC last July, but I took it out the other day when I was messing with my phone's camera. I'm still debating on a stock and grip to replace the thumbhole I had on it in NY (no pistol grips allowed on S12's in NY). I have it narrowed down to the DPH skeleton stock and MD Arms Molot clone grip, or just using the spare Magpul MOE stock and MIAD grip I already have laying around. We'll see.

Finally got it back together, thanks to CSS for the parts I needed.

Magpul ladder rail covers

Tapco FCG


That's just a mock up for now. Still need to do a hair more filing where I cut the tang. A minuscule amount of material is preventing it from seating 100% flush right now, so the mounting holes on the sides are a touch off. Also need to cut down the grip screw a tad.

Here is my latest addition. I am happy thus far....missing something, just haven't figured it out yet. I have ordered a short flash suppressor and MD Arms V-Plug/KA Trappet. Polished the bolt, hammer, etc. myself but needs more work. Installed the BHO and seems to function well. Had to bend the spring to keep it from slipping. Will probably notch it to make sure it stays, but don't think it will be going anywhere as is. Although it doesn't look like it, I can see the sights/bead just fine.
