Saiga 12 semi auto shotgun, bought it NIB from gunbroker today.

Payed a little more that I would have liked, but they seem to be a little scarce right now.

Am planning on getting the 10 rd mag, 20 rd drum and putting a (gasp) ATI Saiga thumbhole stock on it.

Funny thing, there are 2 different drums made, and at this time both only shoot 2 3/4 inch shells :cry:

Will post pics when I get it.

Im gonna have to get a movie clip of putting out 10 - 3 inch 00 buck shells as fast as I can. Ought to be interesting LOL

Do slugs kick as hard as 00 buck? I may have to pick some of them up :D

I have a vid of me shooting 10 3" 00 buck as fast as I can pull the trigger. Great fun. I also have a pic of my boss's boss shooting them. It was his first time shooting anything. Man you should see his head whip backwards from the recoil. Nice buy man!

I will post the video of me shooting and then the pics of me in the full body cast LOL

Heck, I figure even if I use number 2 3/4 inch #4 shot in the drum, with 20 of them shot as fast as you can pull the trigger, that is a lot of lead flying downrange.

If you plan on buying a 20 round drum, plan on adding a 200$ DD fee and concurrent paperwork.

SW
Could you please point me in the direction of that law?

I am not doubting your word, but the people over at www.saiga.com seem to think that at this time one is not needed. :?

If it is that will put a screw in my works, because it makes the drum pretty darn expensive :cry:

From what I understand, there are some shotguns that have drums that are on the DD list, but the Saiga shotguns have not made it yet.

I just won the auction today, will be sending the funds out day after tomorrow, so it will be a couple of weeks before I actually have it in my sweaty palms.

I promise pics when I get it.

Sorry, didnt mean to be a tease. :twisted:

You get yours from Alantic Firearms?

I got my last month from them. Awesome gun. If you were a member of www.saiga12.com forums, they would have given you free shipping.

Anyways, fun as heck gun!!!

And you do not need to register the drum as a DD device yet. They haven't done anything like that, but the ATF could at any time change their minds.

I love mine. Currently its my only shotgun but I will probably get a mossy one of these days.

I want to get 2 drums next month.

I called Atlantic firearms today and they are out and will be until the last of November.

I ended up going to gunbroker.com and there were only 3 of them so I bought the one that had a buy it now price.

I am going to get a drum, a couple of 10 rd mags and the thumbhole stock (I dont want to mess with having to move the trigger assembly to put a pistol grip on it)

I have a Mossy 500a and if you want a pump they are a great shotgun. I also have the 18 1/2 inch barrel for it and that makes it better :D

I am really looking forward to getting the Saiga

Some people on Saiga forums think the 20rd drums will be the nail in the coffin for the Saiga12. But as of right now its not a DD. Oh and convert that thing man. I converted my saiga 7.62x39 and love it. Or send it to Tromix ( warning saiga12 porn ) http://www.tromix.com/Welcome.htm . I would love to have one of their 8in barrel saiga12's. Of course I would have to have an extra $1600 plus $200 for the stamp :(

How much did you pay? I can get one local for $389.00, is that a good price?
That is a very good price. If you can get them for that its a shame you could not buy them and sell them on the internet.

I payed 475 for mine, which is a little steep but they are scarce right now on the net and I cannot find any locally.

I plan to, I will probably get a 10 rd mag first, and plan to put 10- 3 inch 00buck through it as fast as I can squeeze the trigger.

Afterwards, I will supply the name of the hospital, and get well cards will be appreciated :lol:
