Originally manufactured in Izhevsk, Russia, the Saiga 12 shotgun has its roots deeply planted in the birthplace of its brethren, the iconic AK rifle. The Saiga’s obvious appeal to AK aficionados, combined with its ability to accept a detachable magazine, helped make it an extremely popular shotgun.
Saiga 12 shotguns are patterned after the time tested and reliable AK action, but chambered to accept both 2.75- and 3-inch 12-gauge shells. They also have an adjustable gas system adjust the operation for different types of shells. When Saiga 12s import into the U.S., they arrive no frills, which make them perfect for customization.
