I mean you guys are having some weather. Dont worry about it. I think I saw you on the TV floating down the river...LOL...do not worry about me.....
I do not want to upset the process.....if you have 2 that are finished/tested and just need Oxide I will take them ...or go ahead and finish a batch...whatever works for you Mike.
Sarge; just wanted to let you know that you'll be very impressed with Mike's product. As long as you wait to get the adapter from mike before doing any work on the saiga, "So you know exactly what you need taken off", it will work perfectly. I've bought too many guns lately, so I haven't shot my saiga much lately. I took it out yesterday and put about 140 rounds through it. 7 USGI mags with 20 rounds each. "They're 30 round mags, but I find it easier to simply load 1 box per magazine". Anyway; I blew off all 140 rounds without one single issue. Works like a champ. It's nice to be able to bring the saiga and my M&P15 (AR) to the range together, and not have to worry about sharing magazines.
I have heard that the adapters; both mike's and that other dude's; are the happiest when using plastic magazines. I personally only have 20 round thermolds for home self defense. But at the range, it's always USGI aluminum magazines. Never had one problem with them. Anyway; just wanted to let you know that you're dealing with a first class product and a first class person in Mike. Later....
Thank you...yes I know about "the other dudes"......I took 3 of my Saigas out today and went through a few magazines.....just finished cleaning them actually.....I have a boatload of AR15 magazines and look forward to it.....
Yeah you can get them for under $10 all day long at various gun shows around here.
The weather co-operating with you Mike?
Is the mag well on an Arsenal SLR-106 too wide for this adapter?
Nope. They will fit. Lil trunion work...but nothing major at all.
Mike/Sarge: I had a TYPO and didn't catch it until I read your posts. Mike's adapter DEFINITELY LIKES THE METAL MAGS BEST!!!
It's the plastic mags that sometimes have issues. It's about a 50/50. But the standard USGI mags is what I normally always use. Like you all know, you can get them really inexpensive.
Oh, if you all are interested, brownells has 20 round mags; SOCOM Tan in color. Guess people don't like the tan color. They have them for 1/2 price. $7.99 each instead of $14.99.
