Thread: Saiga Shotguns

  1. After the work we do on them and the addition of a Magwell--they load just like an AR and fast. That's why a LOT of IPSC gunners use them.
    Also 20 round mags saves them time in the contests.
    There is nothing like them. Out of the box it's another story.

    What on earth is that on the gun on the right? It looks like something from a vampire movie!

  4. That is a Porcupine style bayonet by another company--Chaos. They no longer make it. It retracts when not needed--as if it's ever needed.

My FFL called the distributor, and was told that the next importer will raise the price by $150 right out of the gate. I wanted one of these 2 years when they were just $375. I just paid $550 plus tax for mine here in sunny cold CT.

    I won't be using mine right away. I plan to smith and smooth out all the guts to make it flow with low go ammo.

    Tried to find Saiga 5 round factory mags, but they seem to be the most scarce. 8 and 12 round mags no prob, 12 and 20 round drums are available. I'd just like one more 5 round mag... If I can't get it done with 10x12G, I may need to use plan B
    Range report:

    Flawless out of the box, dead on balls accurate with a 2moa Barska red dot. 1oz rifled slugs make a 2 inch hole through the bullseye at 100 yards at a rest. Recoil is manageable with the original butt stock. Poured through about 100 rounds of slugs from 1oz to 1 1/2 oz. Alternated between the 5 round factory and a 10 round SG. No failures of any kind.

    It's a keeper

  6. Try some low brass target loads and see if it's just as reliable. They rarely are but sometimes you get lucky.
    We make them handle with all types of ammo not just the easy stuff like slugs and high brass.

  7. I would sure like to have one.I have been out of the loop for awhile so wondering it they are indeed on the Ban list.thanks

  8. They are not on the ban list--yet.

    We have them in stock @694 + 35 SH/Hand.
    And we do conversions on them as well.

    However we sell, shoot and convert these guns so that they have the FCG moved forward, new stocks and pistol grips, polished internals and different recoil and hammer springs. When we are done they are just as reliable with low brass and bird shot. And are full 922R compliant.
    There are tons of add ons for these guns, brakes that will reduce felt recoil by 15%, all manner of rails, stocks and fore grips.

    They are extremely reliable guns and a lot of fun. After we do what we do, it is an entirely different gun then what comes out of the box when it comes to eating any ammo that you put into it and even the charging is smoother. We grind down the bolt and carrier and polish all friction surfaces so that it will load on a closed bolt, reshape and polish the hammer and lower the trigger pull.
    We'll sell them for $474.00 stock to members of CCR plus SH of $30.00 and we have 20 round drums for $86.00 delivered by the most reliable drum maker in the business. These are 2nd gen drums. These are guns right from the factory before we perform the optional services on them.
    The changes that we do can run between a few hundred and 1200 depending on the options chosen.

    We will also sell you the parts should you be a DIY type.
    We also sell a fair amount of the Saiga .308 as well in 21.8" barrel. $459.00 plus $ 35.00 SH
    Any questions leave a message here and I'll try to answer them. Better yet leave me a PM.
    [/SIZE]This is exactly what one of my buddies had done to his.

    When purchased stock, out of the box, was a great gun, yet jammed periodically with certain ammo. He asked around, and after saving the money needed, he shipped it off to New Mexico, to have have it rebuilt, and customized.

    He had to wait a month for everything to be finished, but once he got it back. Well, it is now a beefy, mean, flawless, ammo eating machine.

    If you want a semi-auto shotgun, that takes magazines, and drums. I'd recommend. Especially, If you've got the money to get it torn apart, and dialed in by a competent gunsmith.
    Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that's real power.

  10. Thanks all.Gotta sell the HK P9s first.

  11. I just finished finally refinishing the Saiga 12 Shotgun I converted years ago. Gloss black Alumahyde and over a month cure time. I bought mine early in the game at $269 or $299 from CDNN.
