My Saiga 12 arrived today, and i am very pleased with the fine workmanship you have done. Even when i called a couple times while it was being customized you took the time to answer my questions. I appreciate the excellent work and good customer service.
oh...and it fires off like a mad momma bear!
Hi Mike & David,
I finally got out to shoot the Saiga with the Mako stock you put on it for me.
Since my rotator cuff surgery, my shoulder hasn't been strong enough to absorb the recoil of the gun. (I tried various shoulder pads but it didn't help.)
Well, the stock you put on worked like a charm. I was afraid it might absorb too much recoil (and stop the gun from cycling). But, as you assured me, it worked perfectly.
I pounded off about 150 rds of 12 gage rifled slugs out of both the 20 rd drum magazine and a 5 rd stick mag. My shoulder didn't give me a problem, and the gun didn't fail once! This is the best! It's more than I thought possible! - Just FANTASTIC!
Attached are 2 photos of the gun as I have it configured. - I thought you might like to see my handiwork. - That's a Hensoldt & Wetzel 2x Magnifier ZF2x17° mounted behind the Eotech, both mounted on LaRue QD mounts, and a metal reinforced pop out bipod.
I'm really looking forward to the Origin with that same stock!
Thanks a lot. - You all are the best!
I purchased the P22 45rd. drum and love it.
I was wondering if you could offer it for the Sig Mosquito. Looks like it wouldn't take much looking at the Sig mag. Just a thought. Oh, love the Saiga drums too! Keep it up!
Just wanted to write a letter of thanks to the whole team at Alliance Armament for a job well done. I recently picked up one of the Saiga 20 drums and I could feel the quality out of the box. I put over a hundred roiunds through it on the first day with no problems whatsoever. Not only did I receive great service but I received a great product that makes my gun look bitchen and also blast to shoot. My Dad always told me, "Buy quality and you'll only buy once." Thanks guys, you definately do good work. Also, I always like buying from a company that promotes the NRA because as we know our gun rights are challenged more and more every day. Thanks again!
Comments or Questions: sold a number 4 saiga conversion today with poly choke, carbon copy of the gun you sent me recently. will be forwarding the gun by mid week. My example runs on anything that is 2 3/4 12 ga. Outstanding!
Thank you for the clips, although a 5-round would have been sufficient. Finally got a chance to take it out and run a few slugs through the drum and 10-round mags. I am very pleased, in fact, I was surprised at how smooth the Saiga fired. Both the drum and magazines performed flawlessly. Attaching the drum is still a bit cumbersome, but I assume with a little practice I’ll get better at it.
I receiver my order yesterday Invoice #-----, In the box was two dust covers, I only ordered one and was charged for one. I'm sending the extra one back.
P.S. Love my Saiga with your conversion, you should see the looks and comments I get at the range.
I wanted to express my appreciation for not just a great product but your kindness and generosity as well!I feel as though you guys have helped make my firearm unique and effecient.Thank you for the couplers and I look forward to more business very soon.
I got my Saiga-12 back a few days ago and it exceeds my expectations! You guys really do know what you're doing, and I am nothing short of impressed, A+ guys! I sent the check for the $135 remaining on my account, I hope it got to you, it was worth every penny.
I only have one complaint about my new shotgun. It doesn’t come with a rag to wipe off all the drool! At my FFL everyone wanted to handle it and wished they were taking it home with them! I have had a blast and the 30round drum is incredible! I would recommend this product to everyone except my enemies! I have also gotten 3 offers for my weapon the first day I took it to the range. This is by far the best shotgun on the market!
I bought a quantity of 20 round drums and I stored two 20 round drums fully loaded for over a year to test their reliability and durability as I wanted to use them with peace of mind and confidence in my home defense weapon. I took them out to the shooting range this weekend, there was no damage to the drums and they continue to perform flawlessly. This product is so reliable that I trust it to protect my most precious asset which is my FAMILY. These drums are so much fun at the range and they really turn heads causing crowds to gather. I have been using these for over a year and a half, weekend after weekend at the shooting range with no issues. I have also purchased some 30 round drums and they are proving to be just as reliable. I look forward to developing a history with them as I have with the 20 round drum. Thank you Mike Sr. and the rest of the crew at Alliance Armament for providing GREAT PRODUCTS and Great Customer Service. My family and I sleep better at night and feel safer knowing with confidence we can meet the challenge of protecting ourselves from the bad guys out there because of you and your American innovation. Again, THANK YOU MIKE SR.
What is the turn-around time for your reliability service on a Saiga 12. I have several of your drums and need the service on one of my Saiga's so the drums fit and work properly. I ALSO need the magwell modified slightly because the AGP 10 round mags are too tight a fit. You fixed another of my Saiga's and it worked GREAT afterward with every kind of ammo imaginable. Let me know. Thanks! P.S. I would like a couple more of your 20rd. drums. When will they be in stock?

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for helping to get my Saiga to shoot and eject correctly.
After talking to Mike and explaining the problem I was having, he suggested a accelerator piston. I wasn't sure if that would do it. Well I was very pleased to find that my Saiga will now shoot light or heavy loads with no issues at all. Infact my father-in-law had me order the same part for his Saiga today, to avoid the same problem with his saiga not ejecting light loads correctly.
Just wanted to write and thank you guys for taking the time to come out to Knob Creek for the Kel-Tec Konvention. It was a real treat for everyone there. We got some pretty good pictures and video of the three of us lined up blasting away with the Wraithmakers.
It was very decent of you to come out and hand deliver my slicked up Saiga 12. And it was a pleasure meeting all of you. Please tell the guy with the full auto Colt thanks again for me.
I meant to write before now, but I'm just getting settled back in after unloading two dozen weapons, cases, ammo, and accessories. Still haven't got them cleaned.
One of the guys has posted this video on YouTube of the shoot that day.
I think you'll enjoy it. About halfway through is where we lined up with the 3 Saigas.
Again, thanks to all of you!
Hey Mike Sr and Mike Jr!
I took my Wraithmaker converted Saiga 12 out to Knob Creek today to
shoot for the first time since I got it back (I know, what took me so
long?) and man what a shooter! I mixed a clip of low brass Winchester
#8's (el cheapo Wal-Mart) high brass Federal 00 Buck and some Lellier
& Bellot 00 Buck (which is longer than a standard 2 3/4" shell) and
set the gas regulator on position #1. I wanted to know if the low
brass would function at that setting. It ate them up! I then loaded
my Wraithmaker drum with the el cheapo Wal-Mart shells, left the
setting on #1 and it didn't miss a beat! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! I'm going
to need another drum, I sold my Benelli M1 Tactical so I can buy
another Saiga 12! 8-D
Thanks for tricking out my Saiga!
My recent order for a modified Saiga 12 shotgun with Wraithmaker drum was easy and problem free.
The gun was delivered on schedule and arrived in excellent condition.
Alliance Armament owners were available throughout the process and always had quality and customer satisfaction as their highest priorities.
I'm sure this is not an original email for you but You have one more satisfied customer. Since I've had the gun (maybe two monthes now) I've been to the range twice and EVERYONE asked what the hell is that thing. When I tell them a converted Saiga 12, only a few have heard of it but they ALL want one when I'm done shooting. The look, the feel, the handleability of the gun just keeps them in Auhhh. You guys did a great job on the gun and it really makes the difference even with the few people I know that have the rifle. When we all go on a Saiga trip together, they all want to have their guns done like mine.
Like I said, I'm sure this kind of reaction is no surprise to you, but I'm glad I found someone that knows what they are doing and truely produced an excellent product without a hitch.
Thanks again Mike Sr.
Your fellow collector
Hey Guys! You did an Outstanding job of reworking My shotgun.Shotgun,drum,and all other magazines work well with any 2&3/4 high base loads I put in it.It has an added benefit.It looks SOOOOO Politically Incorrect! It scare's The bejesus out of the regular trap&skeet shooters at My Club.They are a bunch of Sissy's anyway. This thing should send Hillary,Diane, and that bunch into a screaming hissyfit! Great job Guys.
