Saiga 12 MD Arms 20 Round Drum Magazine Fitting
In this video I show a quick DIY mod in order to properly fit the MD Arms 20 round drum magazine in to your Saiga 12 semi-automatic shotgun.
The MD Arms 20 round 12 gauge drum magazine is designed for use with the Russian Saiga 12 semi-automatic shotgun. It is a reliable magazine which significantly increase firepower of the 12 gauge shotgun compared to standard single stack magazines. 20 rounds of 12 gauge in a semi-auto platform gives the Saiga 12 significant advantage over other semi-auto and pump shotguns in action/sport shooting.
Due to the tolerance in the construction of the Saiga 12, the magazine may not fit "out of the box" and may require slight modification. In about 50% of Saigas, the drum magazine should fit without modification. MD Arms wisely errs on the side of caution, making the magazine with slightly more material. Otherwise, the other 50% of users would have a loose fitting magazine which can impact reliable cycling and feeding of 12 gauge shells.
