    Default WTK Does cutting S12 receiver for PG nut weaken receiver?

    I have cut a hole in my Saiga12 receiver to place a stock pistol grip nut and note there is now only about a 1/4 inch strip of receiver between the PG nut hole and the original "sporter configuration" trigger slot in the rear of the receiver. Was wondering if that was at all a concern? Was wondering if anyone else used one of these reinforcing plates as pictured below

    Thanks

    You're fine.

    I've read the reinforcement plate is beneficial for full-auto situations but I like adding them to my builds.

    Yeah you'll be fine, look at the nut, most of the force (torque) is on the ears of the nut which is on the left & right of the hole.

    If you want to add a plate, go ahead it won't hurt anything, but you really don't need it.
