Finally picked up my shorty Saiga yesterday. I bought this gun in January, or maybe December. The Form 3 was sent in back in February. Seems like this has been one of my longest transfers.
I think I got lost in the shuffle of the move to WVA.
Anyway, I can't wait to try it out. Should have a chance tomorrow hopefully.
This is my first SBS. I had been kicking around ideas for a shorty shotty with a higher round capacity. I just don't like the idea of facing a Zombie attack with only two or three rounds, you know?
So, when I saw the Tromix Saiga with a detachable box mag I knew I had found my gun.

What's that you say? This thread is worthless without pictures? I know, I know. Tonight when I get home I plan to post a picture. I figured I had to wait over six months to get the gun, you guys can suffer for a few hours waiting for a picture.

Thanks to Tony at Tromix for a fine-looking, and I'm sure it will be fine-shooting, shotgun; and thanks to Todd at Ohio Rapid Fire for another smooth, hassle-free transfer.

Sounds awesome I'm jealous.

Preemptive "I hate you" before the pix arrive.

JohnnyMcEldoo shares my sentiments, I'm sure.

Awsome man. That will be a cool zombie gun for sure. I still have 5 5rounders left since I might get another one one of these days. Tony makes some neat stuff.

Sorry to take so long. I just got home. So here she is...









Sometimes, rarely, but sometimes, shorter is better.

Im still partial to the Mceldoo cranium busting flash hider. Ive still got a galil style hand gaurd left that would look good on that shotty

Yes, your flash hider was one bad mutha.
I think you're right about the Galil hand guard too.
I'm curious to see just how fast this thing is.

Yup, those pics confirm my earlier suspicions.

I hate you.

Girth is always a factor too. The 12 has plenty of it.

We can do anything in Indiana except SBS, this is the "fun gun" I wanted to have. If it will cycle with low recoil rounds like the Federal stuff this gun will be so low recoil too.

I am now acting out my name.

I saw it in the flesh today.

PHAT.

Sexy.

Very nice Randy. What types of food does she like? Can you shoot slugs too?

Didn't I hear you mention shotguns in your email to me? (NOTE: plural items)

She loves 3" magnums, but I'm not so crazy about them! Ouch.
It won't cycle light loads as is, I need to change the gas setting.
I haven't tried that yet, but it is easy enough to do. Slugs should be fine.
I did say shotguns didn't I?
It isn't quite as sexy as the Saiga, but here it is...

Very nice Randy. Looks like fun. I can't wait to shoot 'em......uh, I will get to shoot 'em, right? Please say I'll get to shoot 'em!

I'm sure we could work out some kind of a trade... I'm thinking classic, drum-fed, walnut and blued steel, all-American subgun icon. oh yeah.
