too old, complicated, no parts availability

get a M1 super 90 and never look back, or a M4 of you like switching between pump/auto

SPAS-12. Summary: Ugly, heavy, costs too much, complicated, and generally useless.

Who did your conversion? How hard was it, what'd it cost?

I had one for the cool range factor.
Got rid of it after a few short months. It was fun to play with though.

Thank you

I did the conversion. Wasnt very hard but I had good tools. Took me about 2 hours and had to buy new trigger group, folding stock and pistol grip all US made. Worth every penny too.

I am so stupid, I almost asked you if that AK was legal.

Damn AWB screwed with my brain!

They look cool and work like shit. Way too complicated for what it does. Youll be flipping buttons while the other guy gets a bead on you. Benelli all the way.

They work just like an AK. Aim and pull...no pumping either

Hey JohnnyMcEldoo, would you do us Michigan members a favor? Please???

Next time you have her out, put a tape measure on your saiga12 when the stock is folded. What does it measure?

In Michigan, we have to register anything under 30" as a pistol. So I'm just curious how much red tape it would involve to get myself something like that awesome little toy you have there.

Thanks.

A SPAS12 requires one to train and drill with it, because it IS a little complicated.
Like any banned import, parts are rare. ...but they're there.

For combat, I'd prefer the Benelli.

But the SPAS does not "suck". It just has too much personality, that's all.

I owned a SPAS for several years. I actually enjoyed it. I didn't think it was too complicated to operate but it was kind tricky to disassemble. As far as parts, they are hard to come by but with enough digging they can be found. I didn't think it was that heavy but then again I used it for home protection so I didn't carry for long periods. Every time I sqeezed the trigger it went bang. The only draw back in my eyes was the fact it only chambered 2 3/4 " shells. For the cash your gonna shell out for the SPAS I would go with the FN auto loader. My .02.

There is a SPAS for sale locally, I handled it and I greatly preferred a Model 97 Riot Gun. It's weight and handling reminded me of a 1956 Buick Roadmaster.
