Yup, single notch on both. Looks like they're both full choke.
Is there a way to adjust the gas system? What passes for a manual that came with it is pretty useless.
I had to buy a third party 3-postion regulator for my Siaga to shoot such loads. I'm willing to spend a bit to buy something to shoot the cheapest ammo as its more than good enough for my purposes. It'll be a lot less fun if I have to buy ~25-50% more expensive ammo to get it to work.
I can only find gas adjustment info on their Lynx 12 and Cheeta 12 (AK style). Pretty sure you're going to have to buy a third party regulator.
Here's part of what the info I found said:
Similar issues the first time I ran it. I went back out with 3" 1400FPS high brass. My shoulder took a beating but after about 40 shells I was able to cycle a full 5 mag of 2.75 1250s. Seems like the spring just needs to be broken in. It doesn't really like the 3in shells. FWIW.
This lil thing is all the fun I expected. I just need to find an outdoor range where I can really run it. And a 19 rd mag.
Any ideas on adding a flashlight?
Used range ammo and 00 buck. The KS7 and BLP M12 ran beautifully, my Norinco I short stoked 3 times, it requires an aggressive racking.
The Chinese must have messed something up in their reverse engineering, because my Saiga has almost no recoil at all. It’s more like shooting a 9mm PCC than a 12 gauge!
It has an adjustable gas block which I imagine would reduce the recoil if I messed with it. I prefer reliability over a range of shells vs soft shooting. Also putting a longer Magpul Zhukov helps as well. The oem stock is pretty short.
Since they returned it from repair I have been extremely happy with it. It had been 100% reliable with every type of ammo I could find from 1 oz #9 to 3" 00 buck (althoug I only shot a few of these monsters) for a bit over 500 rounds blasting steel plates until last time out.
Unfortunately the "Extractor Spring Pin" (#12 on the parts diagram) broke making it useless except as a single shot. Contacted their customer support again, they were very responsive, but seems my one-year warranty had run out (they didn't extend it for the ~5 weeks they had it for repair) Shouldn't be a problem I'll just buy the part, right?
Let this serve as a warning to anyone looking to buy one of the Turkish shotgun brands. This is what I received from them, seems spare parts are unobtainium:
It shouldn't be too difficult to fabricate a replacement part, but if you are not an accomplished gun mechanic, you should avoid these brands! The only parts listed on the web site he refers to are for the Tisas 1911.
