I'm wanting to do a saiga shotgun conversion, specifically on an 11-87 if possible. I was wondering if anybody knew all the legal stuff involved - As far as things like what parts are legal and such. I plan on using an 18" barrel so I'm not too concerned there. I'll probably go shorter once I have acquired my FFL. Any info would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Either you are totally confused or I am.

A Russian Izhmash Saiga-12 shotgun is a totally different animal than a Remington 11-87.

Could you clarify?

Hi Pard,
The Saiga S-12 conversions are done to IMPORTED shotguns -- so,to make them a "look alike" Ak47 -- you MUSt change X number of imported factory parts WITH USA made parts.
The Remingtons are USA made and you can change them to a folding stock etc. with no restrictions EXCEPT brl. lenght and OAL .
Good luck -- Bird

He must mean he wants to make a a Saiga look-a-like? A real Saiga is an AK-47 Receiver with a 12 Guage barrel and a magazine that takes 12 Guage shells. Folks then put an AK stock and pistol Grip on them ....

That's exactly what I'm going for COLT6721A3. I know about the parts swapping but are there any specific parts that have to be in the gun for it to be a legal conversion or "look-a-like" in nthe US. Sorry to confuse everyone. I'm used to AR's and Pistols. Starting to dabble in the shotguns now - still learning. thanks

A Saiga conversion takes a Saiga shotgun and makes it look like a AK47. There are no limitations on US guns (ie:11-87) so you can change all the stocks, grips, etc, without breaking the law.
