Shotgun! Blast!

Saiga with 8" barrel and 20rd MD drum, 1/320s exposure

KSG with 18" barrel, 1/400s exposure

As you can see, both recoil energetically. The difference in muzzle flash is mainly due to the barrel length, as they were firing the same ammunition. With both guns, you get to throw lead at the target by the pound, in fact, the payload of 20 rounds of 1 1/8oz slugs adds up to nearly pound and a half!

    I liked the saiga.I personally did not find the recoil objectionable. It was a blast (pun intended) to shoot. It would make a good household defense weapon. From what I have observed, the Saiga is a more reliable weapon than the KSG.

      Leave 12 gauge rounds under tension in a magazine for a number of weeks, and re-test reliability.

      That round needs to be redesigned to be un-deformable to survive long term storage in a box magazine.

      The Keltec ( and other more traditional shotguns ) are not effected by this since they stack rounds vertically in tubes.

      Although drum mags can get around this, if the drum is designed properly.

    Regarding the shooter on the top, that backward lean was a result of several rounds fired, or the initial stance?

      Lack of familiarity of shotguns. Recoil on that gun isn’t bad, but it does rise and this guy held it like a smallbore rifle.
