jjjxlr8 0 Posted September 4, 2008 Report Share Posted September 4, 2008 I was looking at two Saiga shotguns today - a .410 and a 20G - and noticed a strange difference in the bolt carriers. The .410 looked just like any other AKM bolt carrier while the 20G had a slot in the top of the hole where the recoil springs fits. It also had a thin sheet metal cover that was fitted on the recoil rod and moved with the carrier. The cover seemed like it was there to cover the slot in the bolt carrier when the recoil spring is compressed. Is this normal? What is the purpose of the design? These are the first Saiga shotguns that I have inspected. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
