They are excellent guns as long as Ivan wasnt drunk the day he built yours.

Luckily warranty repair is pretty simple. Just be sure to test fire it plenty before you do any conversions.

The saiga (pronounced sega by the way) rifles do tend to run better out of the box.

Have 2 of them and both have been AK = Perfect

had the barrels cut to 18 1/2" and both still run perfect with all loads.

20 round drums are a hoot to empty , mine have been perfect ,relatively cheap right now.

A LOT OF FIREPOWER!

They are getting harder to find as production at the Ishmash factory in Russia has haulted plus RAA is no longer importing them.

I wish I had bought a ton when they were $300 each.

Jimmy's Pawn Shop in Ft. Walton got a Saiga 12 in today, but price went from $599 to $850. Had to pass it up. If anybody is interested call them quick before it is gone.

The best drums seem to be the MD-20 by MD Arms. They had a great sale on them a few months ago.
