    Default Saiga 12 gas tube settings

    ok, so the poorly written and poorly translated owneres manual tells me the wrong thing...II think.

    what setting should I be using for normal 2 3/4 shells?
    and for magnum shells?
    thanks

    Anyone try the MD Arms 4 position gas regulator yet? Overkill, or just what the doctor ordered?

    Gunfixers Improved Gas Plug - MD Arms


    Did I do that?

    Setting 1 restricts the gas flow (less pressure) setting 2 is wide open.
    The rule of thumb is to try setting 1 first. If it does not cycle correctly on 1, go to 2.

    Thanks for the information. I just picked up a Saiga 12 and was also wondering what the manual meant. My next purchase is a choke and 12 ga ammo of course.
