Has anyone here ever seen an aa-12 full auto shotgun?

    I like the Siaga 12 better myself.

    But we can't own a full auto AA-12. And I bet even a semi will be prohibitely expensive. Now, a lowly Saiga with a drum is more "accessible", and the recoil is not so unmanageable, as I found out a couple of months ago and as this young chick demonstrates:

    And with the right muzzle break, who knows?:D

    I always thought the AA-12 looked clunky and huge. Also they are probably vaporware, I haven't seen anything about people manufacturing them yet. I dunno about you guys but I'd rather have a benelli m4 or if I wanted box magazines--saiga 12.

    The nice thing about the AA-12 is not necessarily the full auto part. It's a very long stroke on the bolt. So, basically, all the recoil is absorbed at a slow rate, allowing you to keep the sights on the target while firing even the heaviest of loads.

    I hope CMMG's AR shotgun prototype comes out since you could start doing the same thing with the AR's long buffer tube.

    I agree the magazine insertion technique sucks. You can't do drums and go with an AR-type magwell. I'm thinking a mix of rock 'n lock and magwell, similar to an H&K 91/G3 would be more appropriate.

    Really, I guess I didn't realize that a semi was being produced for the civilian market. Good news!

    Well, if you're interested in doing some duck hunting, you could always use a Punt Gun.

    I am working right now on putting together a full auto saiga-12 for testing.

    The AA-12 has a lot less recoil on full auto. the saiga-12 is fine on semi though.

    The next machine gun shoot we put together I will probably have the Saiga out there.
