High-Capacity Shotguns Compared

By Woody published on in Chronicle, Guest Posts, News

In association with Cheaper Than Dirt!, the Gun Tests/GunReports.com team shoots a quartet of high-cap shotguns, with surprising results. The head-to-head findings detailed in the video below compare a Saiga 12-gauge autoloader, the Kel-Tec KSG pumpgun, a Red Jacket Saiga Conversion, and the Akdal Arms MKA1919 autoloader with an AR-15 design.

    I own a KSG and it works just fine. I think this guy was deliberately trying to bash the KSG by fabricating a problem. What a waste of bandwidth.

    So I guess no one owns, or has seen, the 1st Saiga’s folding stock? I was curious if it could be purchased separately and installed onto any Saiga?

    I apologize for the “Double” Post, but my original one-line post seems to dissappeared in the sea of comments.

    Seems to me these gun manufacturers are going the ‘Microsoft’ way of manufacturing, and letting their customers do the ‘debugging’ and what is supposed to be pre-release quality control testing. It might be ok for Microsoft when your life doesn’t depend on what you’re doing, but in this industry, they are just asking for lawsuits putting out junk like this without making sure it works flawlessly. I used to own a firearms store, and when I purchased firearms like this and sold them to customers, if they had this many problems (multiple and ongoing) with them, I would refund their money, take my plasma cutter and cut the gun up, post the pics on the store’s website, along with the details of what went wrong, and then boycott the manufacturer by never buying another firearm from them again. I can only hope other store owners have the same sense of responsibility instead of just wanting to sell junk at any cost to ‘make a buck’ just because the guns look ‘cool’. It’s a disgrace to the industry and does nothing but put peoples lives in danger.

    Hey Garner! What the hell are you on, Pal? Your brain is obviously fried.
    People want to legalize drugs — then we’ll have a whole generation of Garners we’ll have to take care of because nobody would hire a brain dead person.

    As for the review, I have been drooling over the Kel-Tec KSG but my THREE Mossbergs will do just fine (two in the house — next to my bed and near the door — plus one in my truck). Best, most reliable and most reasonably priced Home Defense shotgun out there. And a shotgun is the best, safest and most effective (massive stopping power) Home/Personal defense weapon if you train and learn to use it right.

    Best shotgun ever is a Winchester 1200 8-shot. I made a sling clamp toward the muzzle and added some port work. It will eject a round on its own if fired one handed and is so fast it makes autos look slow.

    I own the 1919 and have had no problems with it. I have fired the saiga and the kel tek and have had loading & ejecttion problems at least once on every load. I love the 1919.
