After the Shizuoka Hobby Show 2023, we have all the details about the Saiga 12K shotgun replica by Tokyo Marui.
Filling in the missing information, Tokyo Marui has provided more details on its website: the replica uses a 19 mm diameter piston, has fixed hop-up system installed and only the single fire mode available.
The replica will have a vertically adjustable front sight with a dedicated tool for it and the use of optics will be possible with the AK side mount. As you can see, there are also markings of the real firearm, with cleverly hidden warning signs.
A rather unusual approach was taken towards the magazine, where it is possible to quickly replace its interior. The magazine has feature of locking the bolt after the last shot, a dedicated option for shooting without BBs or an external thermometer indicating the temperature of the magazine.
In addition, the price and release date, which will take place on June 2, 2023, were provided. The price on the manufacturer's website is only 54800 ¥ for the replica and 4980 ¥ per an additional magazine, which is about 400 USD for the replica and 36 USD for an additional magazine.
