Saiga 5.45 ejection pattern

Recommended Posts

New to this forum,have a question about where the spent casings are thrown-- My Arsenal (5.45) tosses them about 4:00, and my new plain jane Saiga 5.45 cases are closer to 2:00!! Is this a possible problem? They both shoot great and function fine, Arsenal has about 1500 rounds thru it the Saiga is new with 50 rounds thru. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Can't say for standard Saigas. My SGL 31 throws empties about 12' at 0200. Seems to be fine.

There are a lot of reasons why rifles might eject differently.


- Ejector positioned differently

- Extractor claw wear different

- Extractor claw spring strength different

- Chamber wear (loose vs tight) or laquer thickness on shell casings different




If it ejects and shoots reliably, I would not worry.
