New to the site. Looking forward to learning some things and I've been researching a bit on my own.

I am under the impression that a....
Semi Automatic
Smooth Bore
26.1 Inch Overall / 18 Inch Barrel
Fixed Magazine
Fixed stock
Pistol Grip

Can have a one thousand round magazine?

Im thinking about a fixed mag Saiga and thought if I'm going fixed mag I might as well get a big one.

If you are speaking of a million round magazine that you currently own, or can acquire through legal means, then you are correct. There is not a specific capacity limit for shotguns.
However, ALL magazines are subject to the import ban.

Is it legal to make my own magazines?
What about the legality of making whole shotguns from scratch?
I can find any info on the import ban, what does it include?

The magazine capacity law specifically mentions manufacturing as a no no.

no. It's illegal. You can't have a synthetic stock.

That's only against the laws of good taste. ;)
