  • DDI 12ga AK-Style Shotgun At Classic Firearms

Brutus' Description

This is DDI's new entry into the shotgun market and I must say that it is both rugged and reliable. It also has a ton of top notch features and accepts virtually all of the standard Saiga mags and accessories that are so very common on the market place. The DDI name has become synonymous with quality built AK rifles. Now that same quality and reputation can be applied to their new AK style shotguns. Affordable and chocked with features.... What's not to love. 

Chambered in and designed to reliably feed all 2 3/4 and 3" modern shotgun shell loads. Comes complete with 2-5 round mags. Accepts all DDI brand 12 gauge mags and all factory and aftermarket Saiga mags. Threaded barrel accepts all Saiga muzzle breaks. 

This shotgun is taking the industry by storm.  Made in China. Imported and Warrantied by DDI.

Outstanding, for 499$ plus shipping which was like 25$ plus my transfer fee of 25$, I have a gun that in my personal opinion is as good or better than the saiga 12. That being said, if you compare everything, price, quality, functionality, this is hands down the better deal bar-none. 550$ total for me and I have bought the stm 12rd mags, and the 20rd drum. 20+1 rounds of 12 guage can't be beat. Basically, F everything in > direction LOL. classic firearms did a great job of shipping the gun FAST, absolutely flawless, best price on the internet or anywhere for that matter, the magazines and drum I bought elsewhere, word of advice for classic, if you guys are going to sell these guns or other guns, you should stock the things that go with it that people are most likely to buy because they will most likely buy them from you since they are ordering a gun from you anyways to save on shipping. Atleast I would have. Especially since the mags and drum were not cheap I think 2 12 rd stm and 1 20rd drum was 180$ shipped, but they work. Everybody loves it, just one word of advice, if your shooting slugs, or pretty much anything out of the gun, your gonna need to have a butt pad on the end of the stock because the stock it totally plastic, there's no rubber on it. But that's like 20-40$ for a quality butt pad and your good to go, even with all those accessories, even a rail and flashlight, you would STILL be far below the price of a saiga 12. ***** stars for classic and DDI's 12 guage. Nice job everyone! Gun was spot on! Keep that **** up! Because we will all continue to come back!
Very Good Buy

Purchased DDI 12 gauge shotgun after much research and seeing the review on Classic. Please never stop providing open, straight forward honest reviews on the weapons you offer. I was looking for a Saiga/Vepr, the first no longer available the second now more expensive than I want to spend for a knock around close quarters shotgun. That led me to the DDI and one other. Ordering they have my go to FFL on file, delivery was fast for a holiday season. When I opened the box to inspect the first statement for the dealer was that looks like a Saiga. The weapon looks great, action is smooth and overall craftsmanship is good, fiber front sight a bonus. If one is picky the only point would be the charging handle is not as blued/black as the weapon itself. Me, not picky don’t care. Also the stock has no recoil pad, it is hard plastic. Replaced stock with a recoil reducing Fab Defense GL-Shock B mated to a commercial buffer tube. The fact that most Saiga 12 accessors fit the DDI is a very strong selling point. I purchased additional SGM Saiga 10 rd magazines. A very light sanding/filing to the end of the magazines that locks into the well area was required at least on this weapon to more smoothly insert and remove. SGM has info on their website. Again not a big issue. I didn’t buy the DDI to rebuild my biggest concern was the quality of the DDI trigger currently there is next to no information. Right out of the box mine tested an average on ten measurements of 3.808 lbs. Pleasant surprise expect to improve after a few hundred rounds. Pull and break is crisp very nice. Will follow up with additional info when weather allows a day at the range. So far I am very impressed, Classic has a winner to replace the ever increasing cost of the Vepr.
GREAT shotgun at a tremendous price
Review by barbarosa on 8/6/2016

I am an almost retired FFL holder who is most likely on his last license renewal and ordered one of these from another vendor for my Son who of course allowed me to have some fun with it. We ran several hundred rounds of Sellier&Belloit 00 buckshot through the shotgun and had nothing more than an absolute blast without a single failure to fire or feed. We are both very tall and having the ability to telescope an AR type butt stock is simply outstanding as we both require extended length of pull buttstocks. It is surreal that you can buy 2 of these DDI shotguns for the price of one SAIGA. This is most definitely a "best buy"
As good as Saiga 12
Review by Brian on 7/26/2016

Parts and Support:
I owned a Saiga 12, and found that "Russian" parts are tough to get. I found this DDI 12, and talked to DDI about support and parts for this shotgun, and they explained that when they "get caught up", that they will be fully supporting this gun, which is good to know. With that, I purchased my first one. I shot it, loved it, sold the Saiga, and bought a second DDI 12 from Classic Firearms. (advantage: DDI)

Price:
Bang for your buck... it can't be beat. Saiga 12 that has been converted starts around $1000 (used) and goes way up from there. DDI 12 comes converted at $599. No brainer. (Advantage: DDI)

Operation:
DDI improved a few aspects over the Saiga. The charging handle is on the left side. Obviously, this is key for a right handed shooter, and not so much for a left handed shooter. This allows you to keep your hand on the fire controls while you change magazine and release the bolt. This is even more handy when using the "bolt hold open" latch, which is located above the trigger on the right side. With a Saiga, you either have to reach over the top to pull the bolt, or use your right hand to pull the bolt and stretch a finger down to actuate the latch. There are other ways, but it is simply easier to accomplish this with a left side charging handle. (Advantage: DDI)

Performance:
The Saiga was reliable with heavy loads. I added an auto gas plug, which eliminated the need to adjust the gas plug for heavy and light loads. That helped a lot with both heavy and light loads. Still, the Saiga had an occasional "stovepipe" shell. The DDI, has been very reliable. Between the two that I have, and several hundred rounds, I may have had one "stovepipe". Overall, the Saiga and DDI are great shooters.(Advantage: DDI)

Accessories:
There is a pretty good selection of accessories for the Saiga 12. The great thing is that most seem to fit the DDI 12, too. However, I have seen where the DDI has interference issues with Saiga accessories that are meant to go on the left side due to the DDI left side charging handle. I also found that the Chaos Titan rail that goes from the handguard over the top of the dust cover and latches with the dust cover latch does not fit the DDI. The distance to the dust cover latch is about 1/4" longer onb the DDI. I made modifications to my rail to get it to work correctly. I have noticed that Chaos has started a line of rails for the DDI 12.
(Advantage: Saiga)

Nice Feature:
The buttstock for the DDI fits to the gun with a tube adapter like an AR rifle. The Saiga uses a more traditional AK connector. My personal preference is the tube style, since there is so many options available in that line stocks. There are adpters to convert the Saiga to a tube style, but the DDI comes that way. Nice!
(Advantage: DDI)

Addional Note:
One awesome and absolute must for my own shotguns are the Mesa recoil reducer tubes. I use an ATI scorpion stock with the Mesa tube, and the shotgun beating goes away, and it becomes more fun to shoot.
Awesome Shotgun !

I think this shotgun may actually be as good as what you read in reviews about it. I've owned many shotguns in my time and never have I had one as fun to shoot as this one is. I was a little worried about how hard it would be on the shoulder after a couple of mags and how reliable it would be with cheap ammo. So I decided to address those two issues from the start. I put a barrel shroud-muzzle brake combo on it and a Mako Fab G-Shock buttstock and oh what a difference in felt recoil, it's a dream to shoot now! Multiple 10 rnd mags are no problem and it runs the cheap 2 3/4" Federal #8 birdshot with very few issues. I do get the occasional stovepipe with this ammo but with the heavier #00 buckshot and slugs I've had no issues whatsoever, The more rounds I put thru it the smoother it runs and more reliable with the light weight ammo.
Lovin' this gun! 4 star rating simply because the finish on the gun is a little on the weak side, but I painted it anyway so no biggie there.
