The Siaga seems to be a love hate relationship. People get good ones that turn bad though, for sure. I think a lot of it is incompetence. But, I detest a lot of the "conversions" being touted as being as good as an actual AK platform from a reputable maker with a price tag to match. So, I agree.People say they are great? Everyone I have ever shot has been fun for a short period and then would start to malfunction over and over. They seem to be failure heavy from what I have seen. go with the 1919. They are supposed to be much more reliable and the manufacturing standards are higher.
Check Firebird Precision.
They make both. The 1919 is cheaper.
Unfortunately some of us live in "shotgun only" states/parts of states. I'm one of these people. I do agree with the smooth bore being poor for slugs. One can get around 4 MOA at 50yards with some guns and some slugs. I've yet to find better than that with the smooth bores. That's why I switched to a rifled barrel. Of course where I live we can use a muzzle loader during the shotgun season. That will improve accuracy a whole bunch.Your going to hunt Deer with a Siaga Shotgun? You know you can get a decent used lever/bolt action rifle for like $200 that will preform circles around that gun at deer hunting. Your going to have to get pretty close to a deer to kill it with a smooth barrel shotgun within 50 yards for a clean kill.
Here in Ohio the law states that you must use a shotgun with a plugged magazine tube so that it only holds 3 rounds total. Or it must be manufactured to hold three rounds.SHOTGUN ONLY STATE????? I didnt know that existed. That sucks. That doesn't even make sense to me. Why wouldn't the state prefer a clean kill? This has blown my mind. Thank the heavens I live in Texas. The grass is greener, beer is colder, and our women are hotter.
