    While I agree, the Saiga is a completely different animal with removable mags/drums. I prefer removable mags and bought a S-12 just before the latest ban scare drove the prices up... again.

    Holding out.

    I have my order in for my TROMIX® AR-shotgun. Costs less than a Safe-queen 1911. Dao.

    Not really a true AR, but it is styled as such and probably uses the same lower...the following is an image from their site. If you have further questions/interest I'd send Tony Rumore a PM (Note: I am not, in any way, affiliated with Tony or Tromix).

    Why isn't it a true AR?
    Anyone know if it is gas or piston?

    It shares very little with an AR mechanically and uses a piston situated below the barrel.

    Anyway I don't know if I'd buy an MKA-1919 but the idea of an AR style 12 gauge shotgun is a lot more interesting to me than a bullpup pump, hopefully some American manufacturer steps up to the plate with one of their own.

    Look at the upper...it extends past the front of the lower (now that I look more closely, the lower is a bit longer too), the charging handle is attached to the carrier, and the handguard is larger to accommodate the larger bbl/gas tube. It really has little to do with the AR design other than appearance.

    Pretty sure it uses a short stroke gas piston, as direct gas impingement would likely be to difficult to properly adjust for different loads.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the only AR compatible parts were the sights.

    The lower, pistol grip, and stock are all a one piece plastic casting. The telestock in the pic above is a custom modification.

    I found a disassembly pic. My guess is that it's most of the guts of their sporting semiauto shotgun shoehorned into an AR style shell and modified to feed from a box mag.
