12 Gauge Flare Conversion Insert is rated 3.6512 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fits! Contrary to many negative reviews of this insert with respect to its use in the Yugo flare pistol, it fits perfectly inside the Polish gun, and accepts standard Orion 12-gauge flares. Also, the cost is substantially less than similar products found for 2-3 times the SG price elsewhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from As Shipped, Doesn't Chamber in Yugo M57 Wish I had read the reviews, but somehow I overlooked them. This thing doesn't fit in the Yugo m57 Flare Pistol I ordered at the same time from the guide.A couple minutes on a grinding wheel fixed the issue, and I already have some aluminum black on order... So I guess it works out this time.Still, for $19.99, added to the cost of 12 guage flares... Right now surplus 26.5mm is the way to go. This thing will be nice to have once those 1980s stockpiles run out though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why are you still selling this item This item is suggested when you buy the Yugo flare gum. It does not work with Yugo gun. The diameter of the rim of the conversion insert is larger than the diameter of the breach of the gun. All of the reviews say as much. I wish I had read the reviews before placing my order. I am disappointed in the Sportsman's Guide for this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from now I can't find 12 gauge flares ordering was easy, delivered in 4 days, DIDN'T FIT GUN. Was able to fix it thou with a couple turns on the grinding wheel and a shot of black paint. Now to find the flares. not as common as youd think, even Sportsmans guide doesn't offer them

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine price for a paper weight. I already reviewed it below, noting, like so many others, that it doesn't fit the Yugo M57/M58 flare guns. I wanted to add that mine also didn't come with the outer markings shown in the photo. Not much of a problem, considering the mill work needed to get the darn thing into shooting condition!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the price, not the usability. The product arrives in like-new condition, with an impeccable appearance. Unfortunately, that is where my satisfaction ends. Either the unit I received needs to be turned down/tapered, or my M57's barrel needs a light honing to accept this conversion. I knew the chamber would also be short, which I will correct as well, to allow me to use common 12 -gauge to magnum pistol conversions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not fit 26.5 mm flare gun I bought this conversion insert along with the Yugo 26.5 mm flare pistol. The pistol barrel is actually about 29.9 mm, so standard 26.5 mm flares fit well. But this insert is 33.5 mm OD, so it will not fit in the pistol barrel. Also, the insert's short chamber will not hold Orion standard 12 ga aerial flares. I will have to hone the OD and file the ID.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The 12 gauge flare conversion insert will not fit the Yugo flare gun. They only go in part of way, Appears as though the Yugo chamber is tapered down smaller farther in or perhaps flare insert is too long.
