Finally put one on order from Welcome to Red Dragun Weapons, LLC which is owned by Brian, aka US_Dragunov here on Gunco.
Factory magazine feed chute and that bolt stop to function like an AR shotgun. Fun times! Here is what it will look like is coming in:
INCREDIBLY, the ATF only has a problem with the picatinny rail on the gas block.
The reason I got this NOW instead of later, is that this is the only shipment with the rail that we will probably see. The ATF is trying to figure how to cut off that rail, but the amount of metal left isn't enough to support the gas block. The future shipments will PROBABLY have the rail either welded over, or somehow machined away to keep EVIL FLASHLIGHTS from being mounted. My point is, that if you want a collectible Saiga, this will be the one!
So, when it arrives, I'm going to convert it to a folding stock, add 922r parts, and stick it in the safe! Since the Saiga-12 needs only 3 parts, I will do good with the trigger internals and (maybe) a flash hider from DPH. At least that will do the trick for 922
The real kick in the pants is that the USA magazines won't use the last round bolt stop due to the use of new followers in the factory magazines. There may be a modification to get new followers to work in USA magazines, but that remains to be seen.
I hope these will be arriving sometime this spring, but with overseas shipments who can tell. Just so it arrives by Christmas!
