New Here Looking for a Conversion Company

Recommended Posts

Hi I am new here and looking for a reliable company to do a Saiga 12 Conversion. Can any of you recommend some reliable companies. I have ran across some that don't specify you are getting for the price of the conversion. Thanks!

I had a long wait for my Red Jacket (back during the panic), but I like it a lot. Good warranty also.

Unless you're looking for something "unique", you can do your own conversion easily.

If you're squeamish about doing it yourself, check some of the forum's sponsors who do conversions.

First off welcome to the forum. I don't know if you are at all interested in doing your own conversion, but if you are there is a wealth of knowledge here both in the members and the material. If you don't want to try it there are plenty of buisness members here that can do what you want them to. Just check the material here and there are a few video's on you tube. Check that before you make up your mind because if you are just hitting the basics it really isn't that hard.

I highly recommend Lone Star Arms.

 

Mike is a true professional, and a pleasure to do business with. He absolutely loves his work, and it shows in every gun he works on. Some of the work Mike does to make the S-12 reliable with all shells is truly unique. Here's what you get for the price. That's a good general description, but you really should contact Mike for specifics:

 

Michael Rogers

Lone Star Arms

Saiga 12 Performance

2501 Baylor SE

Albuquerque, NM 87106

505-263-8822

lonestararms@yahoo.com

 

Tell him Will sent ya. :)

 

You should also check out the other threads in his biz section for testimonials, demo videos, project descriptions etc.

 

Here's a short vid demonstrating my S-12's performance after Mike worked his magic on her:

That's el cheapo birdshot on (customized) factory gas plug setting 1. After LSA works on your S-12's gas system, 1 setting is all you need, for all shells. :smoke:

I absolutely LVOE my Red JAcket saiga-12.

 

I have nearly 1K rounds through and haven't cleaned it ONCE. I Literally pulled it out of the box and started shooting it immediately, and I just keep shooting it every day. I haven't had a single FTF or FTE yet - flawless! At first I just didn't clean it knowing I was going to shoot it again tomarrow, but now I'm sort of curious to see how far/long I can let it go - I will say it looks pretty hairy in there when I look under the dst cover, yet it's still running like a top! I couldn't recomend Red Jacket enough!

 

I posted about my gun here;

Hope that helps!

we are on a 30-60 day wait, and we will install the patented last round bolt hold open from us for a fee, of course

 

the guy Im pimping, Tom Cole, is a 37 year Master Gunsmith, and we hold the current warranty contract for the saiga importer...

Tromix is the best.

 

Bob,

We all know Alliance Armament is the best.... :grimace:

 

 

OP,

I'm only joking. Stay away from Alliance Armamment and that will be your first great decision in this process.

I think if Chaos and Tromix combined forces these guns would become so amazing to the point where they'd be illegal from too much badassery :lolol:

I say do yer first one yourself to learn the workings of the gun...

 

P.S. one of these days i will get around to uploading the iraqveteran8888 video of the conversion. He walks you through the total conversion (screw build and reusing the trigger guard) explaining everything very detailed like and it is a great learning experience... its also on youtube look up Saiga 12 gunsmithing and find the one by iraqveteran8888
