Usually firearms fall into three categories.
First there are work guns for the public servant, hunter or for personal defense to protect your yourself and others or to feed your family.
Next are fun guns for plinking or use for competition.
Finally, there is a category for collecting unique guns that will turn heads at the range and for no other reason than to say that you own one.
The Saiga-12 shotgun is one of those that could be in the personal defense department, but with it being a full automatic. This changes everything, this baby is in all categories.
Think the biggest thing about this Saiga being full automatic is just pure fun of shooting it, we all love things that goes full auto.
On the serious side of caliber the Saiga delivers 00 buckshot pellets and it comes with 30 round drum.
Or another way to look at it is.
If you have one shot with nine buckshot pellets, then a full-auto burst of 30 shots will yield an explosive 270 hits.
That is some serious firepower for close quarter that packs a punch.
If you like shotgun and you want it on an AR platform.
You probably wished you had a Saiga 12 shotgun.
With a Saiga12 you can load up a 20 round drum to it.
What’s even more impressive is to see what it can do against a concrete wall with a steel door.
Youtuber Florida Guy is having fun blasting his Saiga12 against the concrete. Its amazing to see the sheer power of 20 rounds of 12 gauge. Its like playing a video game where you have to get through the concrete wall to reach the next objective.

Watch Larry Vickers of Vickers Tactical gets a chance to shoot this sweet highly modified Saiga-12 shotgun. This particular one is the shotgun of Andrey Kirisenko, considered one of the fastest shotgun shooters in the world. This shotgun is the master blaster in the 12-gauge shotgun world.
Hey next up here is Andre’s personal three-gun shotgun. He’s a championship extremely fast three-gun shot shooter.
This is one of their production models, it’s a version of the SIAGA 12.
It has a collapsible buttstock as you can see, pistol grip with a palm rest, push-button side-safety, mag release is really set-up for right-handers, for right here to use his thumb and drop the mag right here -a left-hander can do it by coming across-, dual-charging handles left and right side, picatinny rail on top, Freeflow tube, and a very highly effective compensator up front.
Not necessarily the gun you would use for combat use, but it is a highly-effective competition gun. Here we go, goin’ hot.
