Hello people, I made an impulse purchase on a Saiga 20 with 1 5rnd mag at a gun store that was closing down.  I got it for 500 dollars out the door, hope that was a good deal.  I later found out that this platform had very little accessories for it, especially magazines.  I can't seem to find any website that sells them.  Am I too late to the game?

Csspecs makes a high quality metal 10 round magazine. They are currently retooling but hope to have them back in production by end of the year.

Your best bet to get it to cycle well with cheap rounds, is to shoot the hell out of it. I used my first s20 during a trap league, one summer. By the end of the league, I not only shot my first perfect 25 with it, but it cycled EVERYTHING I could run through it... Mind you...were talking 50 to 100 rounds each outing, plus that much at practices... So a couple hundred rounds a week, for three months... But no work on any parts was needed...just kept it lubed, and relatively clean, and everything works wonders!

I can't fine any handguard for the 20g that I like. I read somewhere that you can use a 308 handguard and modified it to fit. Is that true?

The gun will handle 3", or 76mm, length shells just fine.

The issues arise with magazines. Use the proper mag for your corresponding shells.

Unlike the 12 gauge, the 20 is very temperamental with regards to feed geometry with the long and short shells in an incorrect magazine.

ETA: what is on the side of your mag, 20x70 or 20x76?

You can use the wooden 308 furniture on the S20. I had one set up like that...just gotta do a lot of sanding to get it to fit...then drill a hole for the screw...but it WILL WORK. ☺
