Saiga 12

After seeing the "Abomination" thread, I realized I haven't posted a pic of my newly converted Saiga 12. The colors are a bit wacky I am goint to paint the stock parts a uniform od color. Here she is, relaxing in my fine Texas summer lawn:


take care,

--Dave

Nicely done- you touched up yours more than I did mine (complete with filling in the holes from the original trigger rivets).

I know this might be dumb question but, can you shoot slugs out of a Saiga ?

BTW Nice work.

well the fine work was done by Tac47 Industries, a great job and 3 week turnaround! I dig the paint job and the optics on yours Techno.


Yes slugs work great in the Saiga.

That is exactly how I would want one. A lot of the conversions I have seen neglect the sights. Would you mind sharing how much the job cost?

The conversion was (parts and labor) about 500.00. I have seen similar work that cost much more.

thanks,

Wish NJ would let us convert them. I love my S12, but it'd be so much better w/the PG...
