FAQ About Magazines Drums
Will drums work
with the JTE Magwell?
The JTE Magwell will not work
with any drums.
For mags for the
Legion Saiga 12, do you start with Saiga mags or VEPR mags?
For the Legion model Saiga,
there are two types, one with a factory magwell and one without the
magwell. For the magwell version, use
VEPR12 magazines, for the non magwell version use Saiga 12 magazines.
Why should I get a
magwell and do I need to do anything with my magazines?
It is much easier to load a
magazine on your Saiga12 if you use a Magwell. A magazine loaded
into the Magwell requires about 90% less force to lock it into position. The
magazine is inserted straight in which disperses the pressure across the top of
the first round evenly to compress the magazine spring, as compared to the rock
and lock style which places all the pressure on the tip of the first round
trying to compress the spring unevenly. Saiga 12 magazines must be modified
like the product page shows to work in the Magwell.
I am having issues
with the feed on my 410 Magazines
410 ammo has many variances
in shell size and lengths. The magazine manufacturer has found they work
best with the list below. Note: the

American Eagle – Bernaul –
Brown Bear – Federal – Fiocchi – Golden Tiger – Hornady – New Lake City –
Remington – Seller & Bellot – Speer – Ultramax – UMC – V Max – Winchester–
What sort of
modifications are necessary for the magazines offered for the Legion
Saiga? Is there any way for me to order magazines that have been properly
modified by your company for a premium?
The adjustment is pretty easy and should not require a
gunsmith. If you have a dremel tool sanding bit you can shave off an
amount of material to match the factory mag. Hold them together and use
the factory mag as a template to mark your new mag. Then remove the material a
little at a time and test fit as you go.
When will the 25
round drum for the VEPR 12 be available for purchase?
We do not know as of now, SGM
