Hey NC,

Another S12 newbie here located east of Raleigh in Zebulon. Just got my first S12 a couple of weeks back (Perrys Gun Shop, Wendell, NC) and it is now with Jack at JT Engineering for basic conversion. That summer special was too good to pass up! Got a bunch of other goodies from CSS that I'll handle myself once I get it back from Jack. Both Greg at CSS and Jack at JTE are excellent to deal with as I'm sure most of you know.

Like others in this area, I do most of my shooting on friend's farms or at the Wake County Range.

Glad to see NC represented....

I just now saw this, I assume you're close to Chatuge then? I used to hang out at Jack Rabbit and Hiawassee all the time when I was younger.

I live just outside Charlotte. Not a Saiga 12 owner yet, but have been doing some research. Bunch of information to assimilate, and I really haven't stumbled across a one-stop shop for it all. Planning to add a PG, folding stock, and tri/quad rail to a base 19" model to start with. Trying to decide if it is better to buy parts and do it myself, or just go with a mod version to start with. Suggestions?

I reccomend doing it yourself, I have no knowledge on the S-12, but I can tell you that my 7.62x39 was a snap and was good to learn how the gun worked and what to do if anything failed. So far though I have not had any malfunctions and I am no mechanical genius by any means. By the way CSS has very fast shipping and you can get parts in as little as two days, they are located out of sc so you can get parts at your door quicker than I can and I am 3 hours north of you.

If you have the money though and dont want to get into dissassembling the gun then go for it, either way you win so get one and enjoy.

Yeah - been looking at a lot of parts at CSS. Pretty comfortable with everything except the fire control group. Only other bit of concern is inconsistency between stock builds and their ability to digest anything you feed them (or not). I see posts where people have "cleaned up" the gas system, but much in the way of specifically what was done. I still have a bunch of info to sift through, threads to read, and videos to watch. If anyone has favorite Saiga info repositories - lay em on me! :D

the fcg may take a few trys to get it right but it is not too bad, just take the time and watch the videos that helps a whole lot.

I live in Raleigh, nice to see some people from NC on here. Anyone know where I could get my Saiga converted? Or at least someone to help with the process. I have a 7.62 and my shooting buddy has a 12g. We are both looking at doing the conversions, but I am scared that I will ruin my rifle. Send me a PM if any of you could help. If you are willing to help, you can come out to our "range" and fire all you want. If you are enough help, I am pretty sure you may have the chance to try to lumber jack a tree or 2 with a 50 BMG!
