Here's the first Tromix SBS 14" prototype of the MKA-1919. I left the back of the receiver a bit long since I was not sure what I was dealing with. I just got the gun yesterday afternoon. That will be trimmed up 1.5" and the external stock adapter block will be replaced with an internal affair to clean up the lines where the stock joins the receiver, but you get the idea. The gas system has been modified a bit on the bypass side of things, but the gas ports are still the original size. Runs great on stout birdshot, but with a bit more tweaking I can probably get it to work on lighter stuff as well.

We'll be building the new internal stock adapters for sale very shortly.

This gun is the next big thing. Mark my words.

There's nonreason it shouldn't enjoy more popularity than the S12. After all, the AR is more popular than the AK and this gun addresses pretty much all of the Saiga's shortcomings.

And before you guys go nuts giving me a weapons history lesson, remember we only sell in the US.

Nice work, Tony. How is the felt recoil and muzzle rise on this gun compared to its SBS Saiga counterpart?

I hope your right while I want to get one or two and have a few AR's I am still a AK man and if everyone starts to buy these maybe just maybe the Saiga price will go back down if the demand falls. It probaly won't but I can dream.

DogMan, this gun has steel mags, a magwell and a BHO that works exactly like an AR; same release switch, same reliability. Straight-insertion mags and they drop free. And an AR-style selector. And threaded for Remchokes. And the action is very smooth as received, I believe the QC is much better than Izshmash.

What is the price point on them. My local gun store is asking $900+ for a stock S12. I can see a lot of potential in this gun and high S12 prices should really help them out. If the after market can produce good mags and compliance parts I can see them really taking off.

I like my S12 a lot but I'm pretty interested in this gun. Nice to see a different stock could be added.

That shorty looks very cool and cleaning up the rear will make it very nice.

Bob's off on the chokes a bit. They install with the same tool as Rem chokes and look the same from the front end, but they are shorter than Rem chokes.
But who cares....the gun comes with an entire set of Turkish chokes and a tool to change them.

And how much would you charge?

Repost from another thread.


Russian American Armory is the sole U.S. importer, and my understanding is they air-freighted the first 100 guns into the country at a considerable cost and are now shipping single test units to various people for evaluation. If all goes well, they will then bring in a container full on a cargo boat. I don't have any specifics as to when that might be. I don't know if the single test units that were sold to a few dealers and distributors will be resold or not. I suppose that is up to the dealers.

But my guess is that most dealers will shoot the gun a few hundred rounds and then cash it in on GunStroker.

I assure you....I am keeping mine, this thing isn't going anywhere.

I gotta quick question.

Tony, any chance we could see the shortened handguard there with a weaver rail on the bottom for stuff like a vertical foregrip? I have the one you guys vented and added a rail to it for the S12 and love it. Light weight and the rail has been very nice to have.
