Williams Shotgun 12 Gauge Slug Sleeve : Barrels at GunBroker.com

I wonder how this would work with a Saiga-12. Current bid only $5 so it may be worth trying it out. Is there the chance this could shoot off? The clamp looks rather snug with the three bolts.

I can't find anything about these, not sure if they would be good for a Saiga or not?

Don't know, never seen or heard of this before?
Maybe it's one of those things that were made before rifled slugs were made for smooth bores?

I remember reading on them 20/25 years ago when I was SCATTERGUNMAN.
From what I remember they do put some spin on the slut to help stablize it.
Mossberg was the first to mass produce rifled slug barrels and I went with that.They say you must use sabots in a rifled slug barrel.The old Foster slug
will not benafit much from the rifling.
PS: When the 12ga rifled slug barrels first hit the streets,some thought the ATF
would shut them down.(High Powered Rifle over .50 cal):cheers:

I've seen the ads in old magazines. Basically, it was popular before threaded choke tubes became the standard. Polychokes were also popular, but required a gunsmith to install. These were a DIY proposition.

Meh, didn't work like we expected. Threw them all over the place! Was using Lee slugs with a normal wad, not sure how this would affect the results. Don't plan to try with non-wad slugs as I'm grouping well enough without them. 5" group of 5 shots at 50 yards :D

Most of my 12ga shotgun hulls are ACTIV and Winchester comp. formed plastic and I loaded them with 23gr of unique under a WAA12F114 wad
under a 525gr Lyman Sabot cast from WW from the used tire shop.This was a fold crimp rated at 1271fps.
