    Default Looking for Saiga 12 barrel length to gas port size and location info

    Does anybody know where I can find some good information on Saiga 12 gas port size, number, and location info for shortened barrels of various lengths using both the factory gas block location and a shortened system. It seems like a lot of people are doing these conversions, but definitive gas port information seems to be escaping my searches.

    check Saiga12.com

    IIRC, there are 2 varients, one uses like 3 ports, the other 2. I believe there is some good articles about opening them up to function with lighter loads and shortening them too.

    There's also a couple companies that post over there that do SBS S12s, they might be nice enough to share info.
    As for the 2 & 3 port, it's most common for a 19" to have 3 ports and and the 20 something" to have 2 ports. Some of the older 19"ers had 4 smaller ports but I don't know when they stopped doing that.
