my opinion

If price is not an issue, I would go with the M4 between the two. I've only shot a saiga a couple of times, so I don't have too much experience with them or their aftermarket mags. I know the M4 will go through 25k rounds without the failure of any major parts. I'm not sure how the saiga measures up to that. If a saiga and drum were put through that kind of test and pass, I may change my opinion. I really like the extra mag cap the saiga offers, but again, I would be a little worried about mag feeding issues. Quite a few guys on here own saiga 12's so they can speak on reliability and mags. You can sure dress them up to look good...

Wouldn't that be a bit on the heavy side, I guess it depends on what it is used for? and what did you want me to hook you up with? I have been in & out all over the place as of lately. JC

I wanted you to hook me up with the shit you were smoking, but after consulting my attorney he has advised not to after presenting the findings from the edgewood experiments. I'll stick with my own shit, thank you very much.

Heavy is subjective

I still do not get it, I guess I am a thickheaded asshole too besides the the thinskin. I am lost now. JC AllrightI think I know what you mean now. I have been just getting on and then off and on late again etc. My appologies to you sir. I did want to ask you though or Isd or anyone, but I figure you would now, very old pistol, no readable markings, Lady is blind and is for real 108 years old. She gives it to me for cutting her grass the last year, and never asking for a dime. I refused at first, but then she said if I do not take it some orderly will at the home her daughter is putting her in, with her. So I take it, the only info is when she was younger her & husband had a banana plantation in south america & chewed Coca leaves all the time legal then? But her husband carried it and said it was a 22 cal. Fine But what will it take, and how do I find out if it is a short, long, lr, magnum, or only one of them ? JC

.22 pistol

I'd spend the dough to buy one each (or heck a box each) of .22 Short, .22LR, and .22 WRM. That's one way (by dropping cartridges into the chamber or disassembled barrel) of figuring it out.

Also, .22WRM is a newer cartridge; if you post a pic some gun knerd here might ID the gun pronto....even knowing the maker or pattern might rule out one cartridge or another.

Good advice and will get to the pictures, and a lot more than that too. I have to show it because it is a revolver, but starting to clea up and silver under all the grime. I think I do have all but shots and maybe a couple of longs. I will try as soon as I get it cleaned up and get the computer and picture situation straitened out, thanks though John
