I picked up my 2nd S12 from Tac47. A converted no-nonsense gun that I wanted as a smooth-functioning backup to my shop-bought first S12 that I keep screwing around with and that has also had a lot of problems. I posted a more definitive review of this in the Tac47 business section, so this is really a few more pictures and then some comments from my wife.

This is the wife and her experience and observations:
Attached File  sm_Ry_and_Loki.JPG   79.83KB   49 downloads
For date night, my wife and I went out to the range and shot about 150 slugs through both the S12s. My first S12 was store bought and has had some troubles and part of these 150 slugs shot was to confirm that it's truly all better now. I'm leaving it in sporter-configuration.

In mid-July, Tac47 finished up a converted S12 for me. We were shooting the Tac47 one for the 2nd time. My description of the excellent job Tac47 did is listed here:
http://forum.saiga-1...showtopic=43240

This was the first time we shot them side by side. There have also been a lot of "why you should (or should not convert) you Saiga" topics throughout the forum. Shooting the 2 side by side, I'm totally on the side of converted. What a difference it makes! I had gotten so used to the sporting trigger pull, that I was compensating for it without realizing. Without focus, my shots tended to go right of the aim point. Converted and using Tac47ís gun, without all the trigger movement and levers and springs and lions and tigers, my shots (once I realized it) were actually going where I aimed the gun. Iím sure this never happens to pro shooters, but it was to me and Iím so glad itís not an issue anymore.

My wife also loves the Tac47 gun. Her love falls into the "it's a better looking and cooler gun" category, but she also felt that it shot way better - in every way - than the store one ever did. She gets a kick out of the Saiga 12 but hates how much it kicks. She made the observation that the Tac47 converted one didn't have as much recoil. Since we didnít do anything in the build to reduce the recoil, Iím going to notch this up to the very professional conversion and gunsmithing work Tac47 did.

We aren't in the habit of keeping our targets, but it's worth noting that my wife could get 8" clusters at 75 ft with the sporter and got 5" clusters with the converted Tac47 gun shooting 2 3/4" Remington HV slugs.

Tac47 TCS has the following add-ons:
  • Chaos Tri Rail and Rail Covers
  • Chaos Puck
  • Chaos Warthog and Barrel Nut
  • HK Sights
  • CAA M4 Adjustable Stock
  • Tromix Charging Handle Bolt
  • Shown with Izmash 8 Round Magazine
  • Shown with Blackhawk Storm Sling

I dressed the shop S12 up for the pics. The only real things it has permanently are:
  • UTG Graphite 3 rail
  • RAA Skeleton Adjustable Stock
  • Tromix Charging Handle Bolt
  • Krebs Sights

Both shoot well but the Tac47 gun shoots much much better. I'd guess that if I had bought the Tac47 first, my wife would've fallen in love with Saigas as opposed to pump-action shotguns. If any of you have questions about these guns or their parts, etc. feel free to PM me or post to this thread.

Eric you are one lucky bastard! Not only on the new gun but for having an awesome-sounding wife. My wife won't even touch a gun, let alone go blast some caps off with me.... Nice new piece!

Don't I know it! She's often surprising that way. She really likes the tacticool guns and gun accessories... so we have many gun accessories at this point. Her dad was a Marine so maybe that influenced her a bit as well.

It's more of a shelter from the work world where, at least in my current position, good performance is rewarded with pay cuts and witchhunting. Loki, the german shepherd, doesn't care about that stuff but he's vicious with sticks and frisbees. It's nice to get out and blast targets. This Friday is going to be particularly bad and so the instant work finishes, we're going out on a date.

When both of us can dis/reassemble the S12s, in the dark with distractions, in minutes... that'll be a dream world.

So now you are going to do a home conversion on the "sporter," right? Or you could get some nice wood from BRG3...

Loki's an easy one... we threatened him with the single most fearsome weapon in the entire world... An old woman with white hair - which for some reason he is afraid of, and by afraid I mean terrified. The vet who nuetered him must've had a white haired assistant or something because we can't figure it out.

Loki was the runt of 7 and my kids fell in love with his lion-mane. All of his siblings are growing up to be police, bomb, EMS, and assistant dogs. Loki's job is to keep us safe from frisbees.

Eric, where in MD are u? Over in Bowie here. I recently got my S12 back from Tac47 also. Had to send to Oregon for some other work... Tac47 parkerized it, but I got mine painted an HK black, just wasn't a fan of the gray from parkerizing.

Close enough in Germantown. That's funny that we both had Tac47 guns in queue at the same time. Which model did you pick up from them? I'll have to go check it out on their customer wall. You should put some pics in the forum here.

I used to live in germantown, off of warring station rd.(sp?). I sent my S12 to Tac47 to get converted after it was at Cadiz getting repaired for only having 1 port hole. Now its in Oregon. Lol, I bought the S12 in April and have had possession of it for no more than a week.

I love the RAA skeleton stock.

I was surprised at how well the RAA skeleton stock felt on the S12, pretty comfortable for a non converted saiga. The only problem I had with it was findng a recoil pad.
