    Hi there.

    Here's some info about our most popular semi-auto shotgun - Saiga 12.

    Saiga 12 semi-automatic shotgun is intended for hunting, recreation shooting and self-defence. Saiga series is based on the legendary Kalashnikov AK assault rifle. This design utilizes a proven gas piston system and two-lug rotary bolt, similar to Kalashnikov AK. Saiga shotguns have the same ultimate reliability, simplicity of design and operation, which made the AK-series the most known firearm in history.
    Saiga 12 has proven itself to be the world's best weapon for 3 Gun and IPSC shotgun competition. On 2015 IPSC Shotgun world championship all the top shooters in Open division used different variations of Saiga 12 shotgun.
    The barrel, chamber and gas piston are chrome-lined to resist corrosion and extend the life of the shotgun. It also makes cleaning easier. The barrel features exterior threading to accept external chokes.
    Receivers are made of stamped steel, furniture is made of heat and shock resistant polymer. Manual safety is identical to Kalashnikov AK, but it has only two positions - safe and semi-auto fire.
    Optical and red-dot sights can be installed using special side mounts or Picatinny adapters, which can be attached to the side rail on the left side of the receiver.

    Hi and Happy New Year to everyone!

    I'd like to show you some upgrade variants for our shotguns which will help to increase ergonomics or allow you to mount a wide range of sights and accessories.

    Easiest way to add some Picatinny rails is to install UltiMAK M11 adapter (which is also available for Saiga rifles)

    or a bit more tacticool quad rail from Chaos US

    Here's also one good looking option with UTG quad rail and ATI Talon stock adapter, which can be easily installed without trigger mechanism conversion

    And here's my favorite set - Intrafuse from TAPCO with SAW-style pistol grip, available for both shotguns and rifles

    Only for single/double break open or pump actions.
    The features you mention on a semi make it a MSSA requiring endorsement.

    Any hardcore fans of conversion here?

    Were there attempts to modify the saiga according to the video manual?

    Thanks all and have a nice day!
