Yes, it's made to look that way. I've heard different things about it, many say the quality is poor and to get a saiga 12. I haven't shot one myself. I haven't seen one since the gun grabs started.

I shot one, it worked, but I prefer a Saiga. It was one of the harder kicking 12ga semi autos I've shot, not sure why but felt recoil is very high.

the M1919 Akdal or whatever? Yeah they look interested, and yes I would much rather have a Saiga 12 or better yet a Molot VEPR 12

Wow, worse than a Saiga?!?! That's interesting because the AR looking 12g had caught my eye and I can honestly say the only Saiga 12g I ever shot sucked balls. The owner said it had to do with the gas adjustment, but wtvr the case, the damn thing just didn't run right.

There's a guy in Longewood FL that does Shorty conversions on 1100's. If I wanted an auto, that's the route I'd go

Saiga 12's are weird like that.

Typically the "new" ones just don't run right until you've run them hard for 200-300 rounds, then they start to run great.

When a Saiga 12 is running right, it's a thing of beauty.
Damn near the perfect shotgun.

Yea, plus he plans on sending it to Tromix for all sorts of work (including SBS I think) and says part of the package he's getting will be to work out the cycling bugs. IF it did cycle as expected, yea, I can definitely understand the attraction feel the exact same way about the weird ass AR guage thingy.

Made by Turks.

That's all I need to know for me to not spend money on it.
