Who makes the USAS-12? Do they have a website?

Nightcrawler, the USAS 12 is no longer manufactured. It was originally designed & distributed in 1987 by Gilbert Equipment Co. in Mobile, Al and actually made by Daewoo in South Korea. The last manufacturer was International Ordnance Corporation in Nashville, TN from about 1992-1995. This is strictly a Class III firearm. Hope this helps!

I saw another cool auto shotgun, a Saiga 12, in a gunstore about a year ago. I wonder if you can order those new?

They are still made, Ramo Inc. (www.ramo.com) produces them. They are A LEO weapon in semi-auto. I just picked one up last month...if you can, I HIGHLY recommend it.

To answer your Saiga question Nighcrawler... Yes, you can still get a Saiga. I was one of the unfortune idiots who didn't pick one up when they were running for $250 new from CDNN. Well they ran out a few months ago and the price has since moved ever higher. Hopefully we'll get someone to start importing them again, but I haven't heard of one yet. If you run into one for a reasonable price I suggest you pick it up, just keep in mind getting mags for it is kinda tough at a reasonable price(not impossible though).

(www.saiga-12.com) has a lot of info on them

hey Bros,

my USAS-12 is in need or parts.

it was made by international ordinance in Nashville TN.

I used to talk with them by phone, but have lost all contacts.

Anyone know any of the folks there from the old days of the 90's and how to get in contact?
