Gas port problems.

Recommended Posts

I keep hearing about alot of saiga 12's with gas port problems. Is this a very common thing? I have been trying to save up some money to buy one but im not sure now. I dont want to buy a gun that I have to work on out of the box, unless im converting it.

Mine has problems with low brass....the cheap Federal walmart stuff that I want to shoot for fun. The high brass cycles fine, the low stuff is FTE everytime. I have one hole showing. Instead of sending mine in, I think I am just going to do some polishing and high brass shooting and see if that fixes it. I can see where it is rubbing on the piston rod where it comes out of the gas tube. It sounds like some people are having luck with getting new ones back from RAAC, while others still have issues. I am not giving up...there is nothing else like a Saiga 12.
