please post bigger pictures. Thanks
Jury is still out if the saigia is reliable enough for 3 gun. Many of the ones we saw at SMM3Gun choked and turned into bolt action shotguns. The RnR racing guys seemed to have them figured out. They are pretty much rebuilding every part they reasonably can. I'm going to see if Robert will let me run some shells though his at Ironman or the nationals.
info on the safety?
I have a 22" monitor and usually don't complain about large pictures, but jesus christ.
Any more info on it? Looks pretty neat.
Mine is going to come out looking a lot like that except less gay. In fact, mine is getting painted that color this saturday.
I honestly don't know too much about the saigia but this is what I can see.
Judging by the cut out on the mount looks like a burris fastfire optic. Big crazy double compensator ala what jp rifles used to do on their rem1100 open shotguns. Fitted for extended choke tubes. Some sort of magwell. Different grip magwell and stock. Looks like modfied AR stuff.
Furious Mike and I am going to yellow the lettering.
pretty damm interesting
umm... it's saiga.. not saigia.
Looks like it's a blast for anyone not directly behind it...
I've never seen a brake like that before on a shotgun. You say JP used to do something like that? What was the story on them? Good/Bad, Gay?
To be honest I've never thought shotgun compensators, or porting did very much. Granted they do do something but not anywhere as much as they do on pistol or rifles.
I never really see them very much, save some of the saiga conversion.
Kinda makes sense though, as shotguns are fairly low pressured rounds. Maybe just not enough gas pressure to make them work reliably?
Probably why that one is mounted so far back relative to where it would be on a rifle or pistol, so that it has enough time/gas to work.
The biggest factor for recoil management with a shotgun is technique. If your doing the run and gun stuff that means moving your feet. You can't just pivot on your hips and roll your knees like you do with pistol and small caliber rifle. You got to move your feet when you move the shotgun.
The second thing is the gas system. A gas gun is softer than an inertia gun which is softer than a pump or some sort of break action.
Third is weight, more mass sucks up more felt recoil
Forth is a good recoil pad like limbsaver.
Fifth is backboring and lenghtened forcing cone.
Last is porting and comps. They do something but not $200 of something. The jp style brake that R&R copied probably does more than strait up porting mostly because of the extra mass.
My Rem 1100 has vangcomp style porting. Don't think it does much. It is kind of cool looking though. Plenty of labor even if you got a fixture.
Gamers and their silly colors
Benelli Vinci > that
Muzzle break/compensator. Yes I know it's bigger than those on some artillery pieces.
Yeah if your into a 4 shell max capacity benelli. Like anyone here has ever handled or shot one. Just from the specs I think it's all hype.
I've done both. It's the greatest auto loading shotgun i've ever used.
