View Full Version : saiga 12 mini hunt report

took the s12 to the desert, used 5 rd commie mag, in search o jack rabbits. ammo - fed 3" mag #4 plated shot turkey rounds. 1st round fed off the mag snagged a bit on the end but chambered on the 2nd try. fired 8 rounds with no issues, fed & ejected ok. wacked 2 jacks @ about 20 yards each. missed some quail because the pattern out of the 18" cylinder bore barrel was too disperse to hit the little birds. s12 carries very well, just need to get used to that funky ak safety. recoil felt light, the kalashnikov soaked up the recoil very well. might get the 3 choke set to tighten patterns, but 2 thumbs up. carry on.

I need a 5 round mag for mine. so over all you liked it for small game. what about big game?

Thanks for any info.

i have fired fed 2 3/4" slugs out to 70 yards, about a 6" group or so, would use it for deer & elk out to 50 yards with iron sights with confidence. it has an ak optics mount so a low power scope would help extend range a bit maybe. it fires 2 3/4" 00 & slugs reliably.
