Where can I find a Saiga 12 GA bolt head?

Recommended Posts

Hope it works out for you. If  you need to repair yours, Cobra's customs is probably your best bet.

I just acquired this Saiga. The guy that sold it to me misplaced the bolt head. So I'm on a mission to find one.

Did he happen to mention a guy named Pauly?

 

There are one or two guys around here with a spare, you may be able to make a deal.

Watch GB and the For Sale section here for somebody parting one out.

 

R&R is probably your best bet though.

 

Good luck, hope you find one.

Pauly is a guy who stole a lot of his customer's bolts and bolt carriers. The comment was basically inquiring whether the guy you bought it from might have been one of his victims. 

 

IMO, just suck up the cash and pay R&R their asking price. It will be better quality than stock, and you will still have an awesome shotgun at a bargain.

Awhile back R & R Targets was getting close to marketing S12 complete Bolt Heads AND complete BCG assemblies?  One can imagine you get what you pay for.  Very high quality?  Bring all the money.  I am saving up mine.  HB :)

Keep an eye on pawn shops too.

 

If you can find one in rough shape and swing a deal on it, you can pull the bolt and

part out the rest of it yourself.

 

It might be worth putting in some time online looking for pawn shops that do a volume

in Saiga's. A shop that does a lot of new/used Saiga sales may have a junker around.

 

Check with Tom Cole and Tromix too, they all have parts boxes and you may get lucky.

ouch! if you part it out and do it right, you might have enough for a working saiga. what did you pay? seems to me that you either repair, make or hire out the part once you break or loose the guts of a saiga. The only other route would be to buy parts off a donor gun.

R&R currently has threads selling both OEM bolts and their custom ones. Pick your flavor, they sell them.

They have carriers.  I don't think they have the bolt itself for sale yet.

Oh you are probably right on that. I had thought they had threads for each of these.

Bolt heads are in testing but waiting for the OK to advertise for sale.  We need to make sure they work and hold up before selling to the public.

Unlike a bolt carrier, a bolt head is NOT a drop in fit. Replacement bolts NEED to be lapped into the lugs, and re-headspaced.

Replacements should probably be slightly over long in the locking lugs to allow some lapping without needing to set the barrel back excessively.

Well, I'd dang sure hate to send my only working bolt to anybody but maybe there would be a way to take a measurement with some kind of headspace gauge and someone could custom make each bolthead to customer specs. I wonder if they do anything like that with other aks. I could probley see people buy one if it was that simple just to have a spare if price was right.

I too bought a S12 missing the bolt head about 2 years ago at the wanamaker show. It was brand new in the box for $400 (didnt realize at the time how hard this would be), they said it was received without one from their distributor. How the hell does something like that get lost?! R&R, I as well just messaged you before writing this post. I just joined and saw this posting. Im excited about the prospect of finally finding one after several years of checking GB, local shops and calling several importers. Thanks everyone for the info!!
