    Question Barrel Length Legalities on Saiga 12?

    Where do I find the rules concerning barrel length, or do you folks know what is legal. I'd sure like to cut the barrel down and rethread it ,on my Saiga 12, to go along with a side folder stock. Keep it as short as possible, and still be legal. Thanks in advance,

    Fed law sez min 18" bbl length and 26" overall length. Bbl length is measured by dropping a rod down the bbl against the closed bolt and marking at muzzle end. Overall is measured with stock extended. It is best to have some "extra" as the guy measuring it in the field might be off a 1/4" or so. if you permanently attach a muzzle device, the device is measured as part of the bbl.

    That's Fed law, state and local laws vary MI and Kali have some weird laws concerning bbl and overall length.

    Thanks Kernel ! I thought it was somewhere around that length, but I wanted to be sure. I certainly don't want any trouble with "da man"!

    Tax Stamp... cut that puppy down. That's the plan on mine... about a 10" barrel. Gotta file the stamp.

    ATF Form 1 and the ATF certificate of compliance.

    Read up, it's the same process for a short barrelled rifle and costs $200.
