Do you even know what an AOW is?
This is a cadiz .410 AOW. Same thing on a 12 gage but you need to start with an RPK blank instead. Smooth bore pistols are AOW's and do not require a forward grip although they may use one. Cadiz's price on a 12 or 20 gauge AOW 12" barrel is $1825. Posties ( Post 86 dealer sales samples ) are machine guns. AOW's are not machine guns.
I meant for Leo or military use.
Lets get this straight real quick. I am talking about a factory saiga, not one built on a virgin receiver.
And yes, I do know what an AOW is.
Looks like i got all you riled up but hey, it's ok.
It's time for bed, have a good night.
Tom Cole is the only authorized Izhmash warranty repair guy in the USA.
Do you consider it possible that he might have a supply of virgin Izhmash receivers? He is a manufacturer and can import such items, you know.
Oh wait! Is this a freaking gun forum? I meant to talk about gingham shirts.
Its an RPK receiver with 12 or so spot welds that have to get milled out to remove the side rails. Theres 2 center support rivets that get drilled out. Take the rails out of an NDS-7 and relieve the receiver for the Saiga trunion , open up the mag well Put the rails in the NDS-7 and spot weld in. Rivet in the center support with ejector and do final finishing. Or just bend a 1.5 mm flat and use the Saiga rails.
"scuse my ignorance, but what exactly does AOW stand for??? I "think" that I know, but I'm not 100% positive.
Freedom is not free. Some will perish to preserve it for the many. Just as our Forefathers did before us, we must take up the battle and not waver. Victory is our only option.
I'm not 100% sure, but I think the ATF now considers the front trunnion on Saiga shotguns the "receiver", since that's where the serial number is stamped. Perhaps CGW is just making a new trunnion?
So you CAN or CAN'T build a Saiga 12 receiver from a flat?
