    I bought one about 2 months ago from my local FFL for $89.95 + tax. Still haven't run it yet, but it fit into the magwell just fine with no adjustments necessary. Nice and snug, with no slop. Dang this Saiga is heavy with 20 rounds in her!!!!

    Just noticed that this is the 12 round drum. I got the 20 rounder from Promag for the same price. For 12 rounds I'm not sure that I would want a drum over a stick. Can't wait for MD Arms to come out with the double stacked stick mags. (Sorry, off topic)

    I'm waiting to see what comes of the MD Arms double stackers too.
    But a 12 rnd drum would be a lot shorter then a 12 rnd mag (mono-pod actually)

    Agreed Coils - I'm sure that's why the factory only has 8-rounders. If you can't fix a problem with 8 rounds of 00 then you're asking the wrong question!

    I wonder can these drums be un-shimmed to go all 20 or are they limited some other way to 12 rounds?

    They're physically smaller than the 20-round..

    they have the nickname over at saiga-12.com of "the nutsack" because that's the proportion.. those that have tried them say they're very compact & sturdy.. a contrast from other promag offerings..

    Coils, with me it's the width that I find ungainly, not to mention the fact that when firing from the shoulder I typically grip the mag with my left hand for stabilization. The 20 rounder was strictly for fun for me. I kinda like my 10 round stick, but it would be better as a double stack. Keep the length down to a little longer than the factory 5 rounder and shorter than a 10 rounder and it would be about perfect for my taste. :-)

    I know what you mean 2nd, the 20 round drums are wide and does feel wierd while shouldering the gun, I think the 12 would be more comfortable since it's smaller.
    That's why I wanted to see something about the double stack mags (hopefully a pic will show up soon), I'm guessing an 8 rounder should be about the same length as a 5 round single stack (most likely just a little longer).
