  1. Perfect fit, after some filing. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jan 2018

    I purchased two 8-round mags for my new Kalashnikov USA KS12T. I had to do a few minutes of filing each one, but the diagram directions were clear, leaving no ambiguity. It fits perfectly with no wobble. I haven't taken it to the range yet to assure it feeds properly, so I'll give it 5-stars for now. Loading the mags were not problematic, so I'm somewhat confident that the mags will feed perfectly. I've used Csspecs mags on my Vepr .308 and I was impressed with their work. The strong steel construction makes me confident that these mags are worth the money.

  2. Solid Product 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2017

    Had to do some filing for proper fit, once completed, locked right up. A bit on the pricey side, yet night and day stronger than plastic.
    I was informed (from a friend) cycling issues would resolve with a metal clip, it did not correct the issue unfortunately.

  3. saiga 8 round mags best I have seen 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    I have both a Saiga 12 and also a DDI 12 after trying the different plastic mags with not good luck I did some research on line and found the metal csspecs mags so I purchased some and was at the range yesterday. No problems at all mags fit perfect, with the Saiga I did have to file very little to get them to fit but no problems and both guns ran 100% mags look great very tuff and would highly recommend

  4. Reliable and tough as nails 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2017

    I bought two of the eight out magazines for my Saiga 12 conversion project, I took the base model and did all the work myself to remake the Saiga 12 shotgun how it should be, not that joke to make it acceptable to import.
    Fitting the mags to it was very simple, I filed a little and checked a few times and tinkered with it till i was happy with them. i also took off some material on the front feed lips for ease of feeding the mag into the mag well.
    Feeding the mags into a closed bolt can be a bit of tricky business but it is doable and the shotgun has never had a failure to feed, just running out of ammo and thus I need more of these mags.

  5. The best mags for Saiga 12 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2017

    There's no question about the quality of these magazines. Everything from the packaging to the finish is top notch. I had to file ever so slightly on the back lug to fit this 8rd magazine perfectly. It fit once it arrived but was a little too tight for my liking. I am very impressed, and I'll be purchasing more soon!

  6. Only Saiga 12 mags worth buying 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Mar 2017

    I've been struggling to find decent quality mags for my Saiga 12 since I bought it. Other mags may be cheaper, but the quality and durability of these steel mags cannot be touched by other manufacturers.

    Best part is they fit my shotgun with zero fitting.

    I definitely recommend them for anyone who seriously uses their Saiga 12 shotguns.

    Definitely ordering more.

  7. Just perfect 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2016

    2nd purchase. Tried one if each of the 8 round and 10 rounds magazines before they went out of stock months ago. They both seated into my saiga and locked up tight with no fitting. Absolutely no issues at the range with FTF or FTE hangups. They were and continue to be "just perfect". Bonus is, they will outlast any polymer mag you have by years. These babies are not fragile.

    Had to buy more when they came back into stock. I'm one happy customer.

  8. You want precision? This company has your Magzine 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2016

    Fine quality craftsmanship in a steel magazine.
    Yes. You have to fit these mags to the individual VEPR12. And that is to your benefit. Instructions are included to perform the fitment. Takes about 5 to 10 minutes if you're being careful and mindful. The result is a magazine that fits as well as you'd like it to.

  9. Better than stock 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Aug 2016

    I'm in the process of doing a Saiga 12 build for my you tube channel Kelteclover. So far these are top notch mags. Judging from what I see they are as good or better than factory mags. Mine took very little fitting and they run flawlessly. I only have one complaint and it's the same as the rest of the reviews and that's the pinch weld on the back is a little sharp and needs to me smoothed or covered with some door edge guard. When compared to the price of the competition these are comparable and a much better value than genuine Russian mags. All in all very happy and will be buying some more as soon as I can.

  10. Great Magazine 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jul 2016

    I received my magazine very quickly, and I was impressed by the quality of the packaging. The bags for the magazine would probably last as long as the magazine, for sure. The magazine itself was fantastic, and only required minor fitting. It functions flawlessly and feels much better than polymer mags. A word of advice: be sure to use oil on the follower occasionally to avoid rust, as hulls tend to scrape off the finish. Great product overall!
