    Just thought it was funny there were no posts about the old Russian Hammer. I love mine, it's always great to take to the range and get looks like I just got out a howitzer.

    It's on my "Need It" list. How does that thing handle slugs?

    Both of mine have 18" barrels and since they have smooth bores, I don't shoot slugs that often. I shoot 00 99% of the time and the guns handle it great as long as you keep the gas setting on the low setting. If you don't you'll beet the trunnion to death.

    The S12 is a sledgehammer and will handle whatever you throw at them as long as it is not Winchester Universals. But then again I don't know of an auto that does.

    Check out IZHMASH Saiga-12 Shotguns and get on the Forums. I did all of my research through that site, the guys can be pretty crude but they love the Kalishnakov's.

    I'll be your Saiga 12 buddy.

    I love the little bugger.

    Best semi shotgun ever.

    I'd get one if they were available in my country. :(

    Semiauto rifles with removable magazines are forbidden here, so this kind of shotgun would be a fantastic weapon to have.

    I might just import one through a local gun shop, in the mean time I'll survive with my 870.

    Hey Robocop10mm, is that a door breaching attachment on the end of your saiga?
    Are you in enforcement with that shotgun?

    It looks like a Talon Breacher or a DPH model.

    I know how you feel. Living in California there are a lot of things out there we can't have. If you bought an S12, I promise you would not regret it. Plus their an investment. It seems everytime I turn around the price on them has gone up.

    )

    The stock is a Command Arms adjustable for a stamped receiver and the grip is CAA as well.

    The fore arm is a DPH tri rail that I am actually going to sell here pretty soon.

    The fore grip will go with the rail, it is a Leapers brand I think...

    That thing is a blast to shoot.

    Yes 4" breacher on 14" bbl (yes it is permanently attached). Custom, one of a kind design. Possibly coming soon (reverse engineered by a friend at Sprinco).

    LE? Well, yeah? That is my daily carry shotgun. Don't have to shoot it, It scares the bad guys when they see it. Oh, well, maybe I am the one that scares them.
