Twelve times twelve

Another Coal Creek Saiga with a 12-round SGM magazine. I haven’t chronographed this gun, but other people’s data indicates drop of muzzle velocity from 1250fps to about 1000. Seems like a reasonable trade for the small length. Fans of longer barrels can get a standard Saiga and put it into a Kushnapup stock instead.

    Have you ever seen a Saiga that runs well? Every time I see a guy shooting one it’s Bang, stoppage, rack, bang, stop rack, bang….

      I have: long Saigas run reliably in my experience. The shortie runs reliably when clean, requires regular maintenance.

      It all depends on how the gas system is configured and what loads you use – with the gas plug wide open on this one and heavy target loads in the magazine, going through an entire 12-round stick without a malfunction has been done, but is not terribly common.

      But that is an SBS. I understand normal-length gas systems are pretty much old hat these days.
