    Wrong answer. Measure them, the S-12 is about .040-.050 longer due to the thicker receiver

    Sounds like Russian manufacturing vagaries to me.



    I'm still waiting for the unicorn pix.

    Why?

    The same pins fit the old AK47 milled receivers that fit the modern AKM stamped receiver (milled receivers are thicker than stamped).

    Why would the Russians put another production line just to add 4 or 5 hundredths of an inch to >1% of their axis pin production?

    On the stamped receiver the extra thickness is inside (the crows feet) like the old Global/ERT&D 1.6 receivers. On the Saiga 12 it's outside. Why don't you just go compare the two, then come back and tell us your findings?

    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    You know, if He wasn't trying to be such a smart ass all the time, He wouldn't look so foolish when He's wrong.

    I don't know him but We have some mutual friends who say He's not a bad guy, but all his replies always smack of the same thing no matter which forum he is on.

    Now the only question is, is he going to man up and come back to this thread with his findings, or is he off in search of his elusive unicorn?

    Never met the man. Overall, I like him in spite of a sometimes abrasive feeling I get.
