Looks good nico! What the overall length with the muzzle brake welded on? And how much did he charge you to weld everything including the sights? Im finally getting my S12 where I want it, but the muzzle device is the only thing left to handle. Also range report on the Brake?

I took my saiga out for the first time since getting the barrel chopped, tromix monster brake welded on and hk sights installed and it was awesome. I ran slugs and 00 magnum buckshot muzzle rise was very little and the recoil was not bad at all, it was enough that my tromix charging handle fell off. with the shortened barrel it will not cycle birdshot even on setting 2. if you dont mind spending the $165 pick up a tromix monster brake.

wow i didn't even think of this. do you think it is the length alone is causing this or the combination of monster brake and length? i wanted to chop my barrel and slap on the ak74 dinzag brake but i don't want to now. all i shot is birdshot lol

I think its from shortening the barrel. I'm gonna look in to opening up the gas ports and see if that helps

"Sporting purposes" BS. They're imported as a shotgun recognized as sporting by the ATF.

And no, it's not a difficult process.
