Because I am an attention whore, I figured I'd post up a separate thread on my S12 conversion. Actually, I figured the pic post is for pics only, this thread is for questions/comments.

Here is my S12 conversion in process:

And before the haters jump in, the UBR is permanently fixed/pinned in place so it does not collapse/expand. If you look real close at the rear most hole, you can see where I drilled a hole through the stock and the buffer tube and some of the spillover from where I epoxied the roll pin in place.

fits on most AK carriers,




Your S-12 looks like its got some money into it!

How's that mag-lock working for you? is there any play on it?
Maybe you can post some close up pictures of how it's mounted because the ebay pic sucks, for others who might be interested.

I do have a few bucks into this beast.

Around $500 for the base S12. I picked up the UBR on sale for $200.00 shipped a while ago. I was going to put it on a SPR, but went with the LMT SOPMOD instead so it was just sitting in my parts box. I could've went with an airsoft knockoff if I looked around (especially since I was going to drill it), but it was just collecting dust.

I got the HALO rail used for about $200 on ebay, Chaos rails are $175 with the HK sights (that's on my other build).

The barrel shroud was around $85 IIRC, and the red dot was around $60 due to it being a blem. The clear mag was $50.

The mag lock is actually secure. It has a little rat tail in the back (towards the trigger guard) that fits in one of the holes in the receiver after you take out the stock T/G. It pivots in place and then is held in by a bolt that goes through the mag catch and replaces the stock pin. There is no side to side or front to back movement. If it were just held in place with the mag catch it probably could wiggle back and forth, but the tail locks it in place solidly.

I think I have an extra one laying around that I was going to use for a Tromix conversion but never got around to. I'll see if I can post pics tonight.
