    Saiga Shotguns

    Anyone here own a Saiga shotgun??

    Opinions? Impressions?

    For a while now I've toyed with the idea of getting one for recreational purposes...wreaking havoc on inanimate objects, killing rabid watermelons, etc.

  3. if you're talking about the 12ga. semi......I've seen it and want one. My uncle shot one with the 20rd drum last week and said that with 00 buckshot it was quite the bucking bronco. I handled one recently and it felt pretty good. Oh well, if I can't afford it (it was $600 new) I guess I'll have to settle for the Mossberg 500 Pursuader. Not a bad fall back plan, huh?

    I saw the video the other day and it rekindled my interest. Had one in my hands today. Didn't buy it but I'm pretty sure I will after the holidays.

    P.S. OldOwl....showing me that video is like dangling a bag of smack in front of a junkie!

    What else can you tell us about it? What are your thoughts on build and reliability, possible trouble areas? Is it a Di or piston? I'm very interested in one of these. The price in the link I posted was $499 I think and $425 for the 30 round drum. I'm thinking buy it in NH with no tax, register it here and keep the drum in NH or Maine and have 10 round mags here. I'd have to sell my 870 to get it, so I'd want to know how reliable it is before buying one. I know I can hammer in nails and drag the 870 through the mud and it still works.

  8. Talking Saiga 12 ga.

    These are Kalishnakov based guns with a gas driven piston. They were designed originally for war so run best with High Brass ammo.

    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.

  9. I never bothered to look at the Saiga12 until I saw one mow down a 10 plate rack at the Zombie shoot @ DPMS. My friend and I looked at one another and said "WE NEED TO GET ONE OF THOSE!" I had mine within a week. The only thing that I have done to it is changed the fore grip, stock and put a SHARK BREAK on it. I did an initial cleaning and have not cleaned it yet. I DO NOT TREAT MY GUNS LIKE THAT BUT I WANTED TO TEST IT. I HAVE JUST UNDER 800 RDS OF 12GA THROUGH IT WITH ONLY LUBING IT. The only failures I had were due to the mag. Most come in a sporterized version which is nothing they just moved the trigger group back in the receiver and put a cheap rifle type stock on it. What you can do to modify the Saiga is just a matter of how deep your pockets are and if you want to spend the money. Just Google the Saiga12. You can make this thing look and function like an AR shotgun. If you do get one get Sure fire mags and the 20-30rd drums are cool but kind of bulky. There is not much you won't be able to handle with 2 12rd mags. I will stop babbling now. LET ME JUST SAY THIS...THE RUSH YOU GET WHEN YOU DUMP 12-20 RDS OF 12GA ON TARGET IS PRETTY COOL. I AM REALLY NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO CLEANING IT. I MAY JUST PAY ONE OF MY BUDDIES LOL. GOOD LUCK

    I love my Saiga 12 nearly as much as my Saiga .223...

    Not so crazy about the drum mags...both my friend who introduced me to Saiga and I have had quite a few FTLs with them.

    If you take the time to either do the mods or have someone like us do them, you will rarely have FTF, FTE, FTL.

    And cleaning the gun is a snap--not like an AR. Clean the barrel, clean the gas block up front and the tappet inside and you'll rarely have to do anything else.

    I have a .308, a 7.62x39 and 2, 12ga. all converted and everyone who fires any of them wants one.
    The .308 is a more accurate rifle than the .223 version in my experience.
    So is the 7.62 which I like more than my ARs.
