    I’m looking into a Saiga 12 pattern ak I know on the Saiga you need to enlarge the gas port to function correctly. But I’m looking at a Chinese knockoff it is supposed to be a fairly large gas port with a adjustable gas block any chance I can shorten the barrel without messing with the gas port? How short can I go? The specific gun I’m looking at is the jts m12ak it’s suppose to be a Chinese Saiga clone.

    On a Saiga, you really can't shorten the barrel at all without enlarging the gas ports and/or moving the gas block rearward. They barely run as it is with standard field loads.
    I don't know anything about the knock-offs and no longer work on any Saigas.

    Tony,

    Didn't know you were on here. It's a shame you no longer work/build those. I had the pleasure of shooting one of your 8" "flame throwers"...what an amazing gun. You do some FANTASTIC work.
