Speaking of which . . .
Since the 20rd drums aren't allowed even in Open division, do you think the Saiga shotguns with 10rd box magazines will have a significant impact on Open division shotgun?
I can see how they would be faster for people who have not mastered speedloader tubes, but given how long it takes to reload an AK (and a Saiga has to be similar) and how fast a lot of people can use speedloaders, I'm skeptical that reloading would be any faster (or even as fast) for someone with comparable skill with both.
And for stages that mix shot and slugs, the tube-fed guns have a clear advantage.
I know some semi-big dogs are using Saigas now, but are they really going any faster overall?
And for shorter stages where reloads are less of an issue, it seems like a true shotgunner could probably go faster with a traditionally configured shotgun vs. a Saiga with a pistol grip and sights well above the boreline/
