    ............just joking with ya. It's just a Bulgarian sidefolder with an APEX pad. I thought you'd also bought a pad from them ???

    Do you have a front latch on it for the side folder? If so are you using the bulgarian or the one made for the saiga?

    thx.

    Hello Who makes the good Saiga 12 mags, I hear people talking about breaking the plastic mags off while shooting the shotgun. Does anyone know where to find a steel mag for the Saiga 12? Most AKs are using steel mags, it makes sense to have a solid strong mag. IRONMULE

    I don't have a front latch on it yet. Was waiting to see if the Russian Saiga12 latch would become available again or someone started producing them. If all else fails could make one myself. I've never seen dimensions listed on any forum though.


    Did I do that?

    No steel mags for these that I'm aware of

    The factory mags, along with the AGPs and the MD drum are steel where it counts, in the locking lips. Others are not. There seems to be a real problem with the 12 round mags. Stick with those that are 10 or less, except of course, the MD drum.

    That's what I think is so weird, I've seen several people make there own and some lucky ones that got originals but no one wants to give any info. I guess it makes them feel special or something?

    Nice, how hard was the rear trunion to install?

    I looked at the bulgy side folder kits, I decided to go easy and saw off the tang and install a adapter block and use the ace side folder adapter...
