    Added weight in my OU stock. Split my stock on the 40th something shot. It was an expensive lesson. FML.

    Cheapo Walmart scope. I thought I was going nuts with that thing.
    Never were the settings repeatable.

    I put a Kushnapup <link> bullpup conversion on a Saiga 20 gauge. I hate it. Imagine a shotgun with 90% of the weight behind the pistol grip. Handling it is clumsy as hell until you finally get it on your shoulder. And then there's the lack of a real trigger guard.

    One of these days I need to put it back to it's original configuration, but my GAS quotient for the job is at sub-zero right now.

    In the spirit of disclosure, I did similar to an SKS. The bullpup stock and the SKS was a great combination and I have no issues with the quality of the stuff.

    But magazine changes are more than painfully slow. It's probably the last gun that I would want to use for anything besides back yard plinking and having fun. For that, it's a fun gun. But I wouldn't want to use it for anything other.

    I like the bullpup design. I just hate that the mag changes are so slow.

    I filed the connector on my saiga12 drum mag, and it doesnt fit now. So I had to buy a new drum. But I still have the other one. Just in case....

    I tried the 15 round Pro Mag magazines in my Hi Point 4095 carbine. I shouldn't have. Better to have just left well enough alone. Take care. Tom Worthington

    I bought non Browing magazines for my 9mm Hi-Power. They were half price from the Browning mags. They would not feed pretty much anything. I removed the aluminum follower and smoothed the edges and polished it but it was no better.

    Cheap 33 round no name brand Glock Mag that will only hold 20ish rounds.

    Close second would be the plastic mag extension tube for my 870. The threads were in a metal insert set into the end of the tube. They were not square and it never did feed properly without catching the follower;

    I pretty much just leave all of mine the way I buy them. They seem to work best that way.
