A full breakdown can be found in the blog, but essentially this is a kit to retrofit into your lower, which enhances specific components/ parts of your lower to stand up to the abuse that the 12 gauge shell. 

CHOKED BARRELS

All barrels come with SAIGA external barrel threads, and we do not offer internal chokes standard. If a internal choke is desired then we can add internal threading to accept Tru-chokes or Briley. This will not be a substitution to the external threads, so you will have both. Adding a internal choke will limit you to lead shot only... no steel shot. This is a custom option so contact us direct after your order or prior, and we can quote the custom work order. 

WHAT BARREL LENGTHS DO YOU OFFER? DO YOU OFFER RIFLED BARRELS?

We have 2 standard lengths: 18" and 10.5"

We have tested barrels down to 7" and can do NFA SBS builds or custom Firearm/Pistol builds if you do not see what you desire in the store front.

 

At the moment we do not offer rifled barrel. Just smooth bore.

Fiocchi ammo is the only brand of ammo we do not recommend. As long as it is 2 3/4" or 3" and 1145FPS or higher, you should be good to go.
