  1. Awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th May 2016

    Received my magazines with lightning fast shipping. EXCELLENT Quality. Very minor fitting required so the mag catch would seat. Super easy to do for a guy that's not very handy. Functions superbly. I like the size and durability MUCH better than SGM mags that have worked for me in the past. Buy with confidence.

  2. Good to go 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2016

    Have several of these. Never failed. Runs smooth as silk. Will last the life of the gun in the most adverse conditions. Just as good as factory mags, but a bit heavier. Well worth it.

  3. Great Mags at a Great Price! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jan 2016

    I just bought 2 CSSpec metal mags for my Saiga 12. I love them. Each of them took about 5-10 minutes of minor file work to fit properly, but instructions made it simple. They are solid and so much stronger than the plastic factory mag. I will probably get at least a couple more.

  4. Don't fit - Sending back 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Nov 2015

    Mags don't fit my Saiga 12G with or without a shell in the magazine.

    Csspecs: Fitting is often needed on Saiga-12 magazines due to firearm variation, they come with a fitting instruction for that reason.

  5. Awesome! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd May 2015

    Cravat: I have not been to the range yet, However these mags are of incredible build quality and finish. Also CSSpecs is incredible in their service. These move the Saiga 12 into the realm of a legitimate defensive weapon like the rest of its AK brethren.
    I am a very satisified customer.

  6. worth the money 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2015

    Very high quality

  7. Great mags, great service. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Apr 2015

    Mags work great. Plastic mags seem cheap, these steel mags make the shotgun seem more legitimate. Remind me of factory HK91 quality, maybe better. My Saiga runs like crazy on Walmart Federal 100 pak.

    The mags did not require much filing. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but now I fully understand the desired result and it is actually very easy. Good instructions and a YouTube video were very helpful.

    I got five of these for the Saiga, but I just found out about the Vepr and I want!! I guess I'll have to order a pile of those too!

  8. Rare High quality product made in USA 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jan 2015

    Plastic is cheap and easy, but do you really? want to bet your life on it? Unlike the plastic ones on the market now,you won't have to pretend, rationalize or lie to convince yourself that your mags are "real deal". These are solid, well built professionally designed and executed magazines in a market niche devoid of such. If you dared to dream of HK quality in your Saiga mags, these are the ones. Pricey but worth it. Forget Mag failures. Some significant metal removal but really simple filing/fitting required for my gun. Rock solid lock up achieved first time no problem. As said prior to my small review- "I simply would not change a thing!"

  9. Perfection 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Dec 2014

    The mags are perfect in fit, form, function, and looks. I have some drums as well, but the drums make gripping the gun awkward and are very cumbersome to perform a reload and move the with gun while running an actual tactical course. Not so these awesome mags! The are expertly made and will take a severe beating. I don't imagine replacing them unless I lose them. After a couple of minutes of file work, they fit my S12 perfectly and snug. They are easy to handle and reloads on the fly are easy. They look awesome on my gun - and that's important no matter what people say.

  10. The only aftermarket mags I use. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2014

    I picked up 2 of these a few months ago and after testing them with different ammo types, weights, and lengths, I haven't experienced any feeding problems or hiccups at all. I now own 5 of these magazines and plan to order more soon. All 5 only required about a minute of light filing to clear the mag latch. All of my other brand mags are now in a box collecting dust and I've been spreading the word about csspecs magazine quality to other Saiga owners. These are now the only magazines I ever bring to the range (other than my MD-20 drum).
