    Default Saiga-12 Magwells in stock at Rusmilitary

    I just received mine, took about 2 weeks to get them! They didn't charge my CC for about half a week, so I assume they don't have a large inventory of stock. I ordered only the magwell but they have it and the magwell/magazine combo listed as "in stock"!!!

    Grand total delivered to my addy $85

    A few observations:

    - The front retainer tab appears to screw into a slot and is secured with a 90-degree turn of the screw. Interesting... need to figure how to secure that.

    - Comes with an extra-long magazine retaining pin

    - This thing is nice and beefy... I wonder if I can mold a master.

    Cool.....thanks for the heads up. Might have to pull the trigger and pick one up.

    BTW - received my front latch hdwr from the same place. Just need to get excited enough to install it.


    Did I do that?

    Does the latch hardware have instructions? I found the online "template" isn't that accurate.

    I'd recommend getting the mag combo so you won't have to be like me and have to try to figure out how exactly to mount it. Looks like there are tabs on the back, where the retainer latch is, that needs to be sanded down to fit just right. I don't think I'm expected to cut into the receiver around the latch.

    Also, the're a slide on the front that needs a cut in the front of the magwell opening in the receiver to make it fit. At first I thought it was just a tab from the molding that needed to be cut off, but now it looks obvious that it keeps the front of the magazine from sticking in the front retainer area.

    Mine didn't have any info with it.
    This is from the Saiga12 Forum, it's in a thread started by sKott, I think. The measurements are from an actual 12C, I used it when I did mine, the only thing I can suggest is to leave the front a little short and open it slowly until it seems right.

    Coils you're spot on! I found the hole to be too high and slightly exposed the very bottom of the trunion. Could have been a little farther down. Measuring from a riveted-in piece assumes all rivets to be identical, which I think is the problem. It really needs to be measured from a straight-edge set along the top of the receiver.

    Thanks for posting the dimensions for the install of the front latch along with the comments. They will be very useful


    Did I do that?

    One thing to keep in mind is that the lever will extend into the magazine well. This can block you from engaging the latch when a magazine is loaded. If you look at factory mags, and the factory magwell, they have a bevel that lets the latch engage. I'm pretty sure you'll need to grind on the aftermarket magazines to get them to fit like factory.

    You know, now that I look at it, there's a recess for the folding stock hinge pin on the bottom of the magwell.
