Recommended Posts

I just joined today. I'm from Orlando, FL. I saw a saiga 12 for sale at my local range. I'm planning to buy a saiga 12 in the future but want to know all the ups and downs. I can see this forum has it all. My main concern is not buying a cheap clone or something like that specially in a pawn shop or gun show. I will continue to read and get educated in the subject. I currently own a custom Mossberg 500 but will love to have a reliable saiga. The plan is to buy a saiga 12 and if I like it I will then sell my mossberg. It will be mostly for home defense and range shooting with 00 buckshot, birshot and slugs.

I'm pretty new here, just bought my first S-12. I've been lurking around a bit and reading just about every topic that is recent (within 3-6 months), searching for all the stuff I don't know and have questions about, and learning a lot. This is a great place for information and so far I've really only read the S-12 section...I'll have to move on to the rifle section at some point.

Hi my name is Chris from louisana, I have been shooting and working on guns for a long time. I just purchased my first Saiga 12 and have to say I am thoroughly enjoying it. I have been lurking here for a while and reading just about every thread on here, I just want to thank everyone for the detailed writeups and pointing me in the right direction. Will post pics of before and after when I finish the conversion this week.

I'm glad that you have taken the time to welcome newbies such as myself and help by explaining that searching for things can be easier than starting a thread. I am new to forums and to modifying guns. My saiga 12 is the first one that I have worked on myself so this is going to be a invaluable site. If anybody would like, please feel free to check out my gallery and leave and comments or suggestions you have. Again, thank you all and I am pleased to be a member here.

Hi everyone! I'm new to the Saiga. So new that I probably won't be picking it up for a couple weeks or so (paying it off over the next couple pay checks). Anyhow, just wanted to check in as I'm sure I'll be spending plenty of time here. Not gonna keep it stock for long.

Hello everyone. New today as a member. Have been looking over the site for a while. A lot of good information here from what I have seen so far. Not new to firearms just new to Saigas. Picked up my first Saiga 12 last week. All I can say is SWEEEET.

man it still takes me awhile to fully appreciate the Saiga 12. Its russian, stamped metal components, lil slop - and HEY! WTF! twisted wire for my hammer?!

Ugh! I got the price of ammo down to about .60 per round - but blowing through 20 round drums (pro-mags) is too easy. Of course everyone on the range has to come over and beg to try it out.

 

I like to train practical/tactical - and trying to figure out a loadout for the Saiga 12 is tough - I cannot see it as a primary weapon due to the limited amount of mags and rounds I could carry if I was hiking. I see the Saiga as a vehicle mount or building mount weapon so you can just reach in to a locker full of mags. So I carry a glock and AR15 for the best loadout for humping.

 

I did have reliability issues with the pro-mag - but just like the articles suggest - just file away a tiny bit of plastic and it will fit nice and tight. Fire off a few drums and it will shave the final bits of plastic off it needs.

 

I am working on the stock options now, as it came with the faggity sporter stock, no pistol grip. I need to install a rail system for a red dot optic.

I did purchase the barrel shroud to protect the thin barrel of the 12 gauge on training exercises. $99 http://www.mississippiautoarms.com/ms-auto-arms-saiga-12-barrel-shroud-tube-p-627.html

 

I wanted the ACE left side folding stock. Out of order right now.

 

Glad to be here - it gets one pumped to go shooting!

Welcome new-comers! beer.gif

 

The evening of the election/early next morning, I was in chat and noticed 4 or 5 names I hadn't seen before. When I said "lots of new faces in here", one of the new guys seemed to take offense. Not sure why. But regardless, it's nice to see everyone.

Probably got something to do with my big mouth telling people about my new S 12. :rolleyes: I know at least two people who have bought them since seeing mine and more who will, and I tell them about this forum. Still LOVE mine. Don't have the time or money to play with it right now, but at least I BOUGHT it while the price was right. I'll NEVER get rid of it. Polished the innards and put it away.

 

Kidding aside, I bet the Sons of Guns had something to do with boosting the addicts. Jeez! They were using S 12 's for EVERYTHING in the first few episodes!

also the atf "study". people get all worked up when they think something wont be availible anymore.

 

Someone WILL correct me if wrong..........I'm pretty sure that Red Jacket was a business member here before the show ever started.

Add one more new guy to the list. I live in the Florida panhandle and just traded for a brand new S12 yesterday. I'm no stranger to guns or shooting, but this weapon will be a new experience for me. I have browsed some of the threads and hope to use this forum as my central reference in all my Saiga escapades. Thanks for producing and contributing to this place. I'll be shooting mine for the first time on Saturday.

Yes looooooong before the show. Will was very active in the forum before the show was even thought about.

I joined the board a few weeks ago and failed to post to the new members section. I am from NE Pennsylvania and have wanted a Saiga 12 for some time. I bought my first one about a week before finding this board. Thanks to all for such an excellent resource.

 

I am about 50% complete with my first conversion and will post pictures when finished. I try to stop by Cabela's a couple of times per week just to see if they have anything new or interesting. If anyone would like for me to scope out anything for them while I am there, just send me a PM.

Also new to posting here. I've had a saiga 12 for about 2 years and have just started doing my own conversion. I've finally got all the parts I need for it, and have git to the point of removing the old fcg parts. Now just two hold-ups, blasting the receiver to repaint (duracoat maybe, sounds easier than cerakote), and polish the bolt. I will be studying that thread so I don't screw it up. The rest looks pretty easy.

Hey everyone, have been a Saiga 12 owner for a year now and frequented these forums and hope to learn a lot more by talking with others and hopefully contributing. I had an account created a year ago, but I had some issues and I could never view or access anything while logged on, weird...
