Here are two Saiga 12 gauge AK47 style shotguns side by side. The one with the folding stock has been modified to have a pistol grip and standard AK47 trigger. The modifications to the Saiga 12 require a few US made parts to be used on the new shotgun to remain 922r compliant. The US made magazine offers three US parts, the pistol grip and trigger group use another 4 US made parts, these pass the 922r test and a foreign made stock can be used. This example uses a Romanian wire side folder, US (Galil style) SAW grip, an AGP US made magazine and a Tapco trigger group.

Tromix Modified Saiga 12

I had the chance to review and photograph a Saiga 12 shotgun made by Saiga (Izhmash) in Russia. This one is modified by Tromix. This Saiga 12 shotgun is used by Gabe Suarez for testing and evaluation of the Tromix modifications. I can not speak for Gabe, but I was impressed with what I saw when I took a look at this unique Saiga 12 re-designed for fighting from the ground up.
