Not being a real shotgun fanatic
, I've ended up with several. My first is an old family heirloom, this one predates my grandfather, an old break action singleshot H&R. I had a pump years ago, it went by the wayside in favor of an Browning Auto 5. Then I stumbled on a Saiga 12 when they were released, being an Ak, I couldn't help myself. I mean, come on it's an Ak, that eats big shotgun shells, what's not to love? And during the recent Russian import ban, I managed to dig up a Saiga 410, for $350, with some goodies thrown in
I wish they would make a Saiga 10
Oldie but a goodie, it still barks and kicks like a mule.
A classic beauty, made in 1961.
This is the 12, a big toy, but function is flawless, and it eats anything.
It's slowly evolving, and it also has the adjustable gas plug installed, it will now cycle the weakest loads with ease, and chew through the hot stuff. The drum has been flawless, a pain to load, and is heavy, but fun to empty
Nothing says "I love you" quite like 20 rds of 12 gauge buckshot, or slugs
The 410, I've run one drum through it, this was a condition of me buying it. No issues, so it came home to meet it's big brother.
