R&R Targets Saiga
R & R Targets custom conversion of the Saiga-12 was featured by the Harris Tactical Group in their Special Weapons for Military and Police magazine. Robert Wright from R&R has not rested on his laurels however. The company’s new design is called the Enforcer. It features a 13.5-inch barrel with a collapsible buttstock as well as rails on the front sides of the semi-auto shotgun’s forearm. Robert completely disassembles the Saiga design and then makes it more user friendly by making it operate more like an AR platform and function flawlessly. The Enforcer points really well with plain iron sights with the addition of a small red-dot it could really smoke. Robert and R&R Targets are good people check them out at randrtargets.com or give them a ring at 503-551-7283.
