7.62x39 - $399.95
just a heads up
dang. they sold 100 Saiga 12g in 2 days at 599 a pop...
man i want one of the saiga .223's ..... if you can believe it i just dont have $370 to spare....
i offered 350 to a guy selling a used one a while back and he thought it was too low... that was back when i did have the money
those things are hella popular...i'm thinkin' the saiga rfiles they have won't least the week.
Good site - lots of interesting stuff on there. Thanks for posting.
Has anyone here shot there rifles? I'm particularly curious about how the .223's do.
i havent personally shot the saiga .223 but i have gathered a few things due to the fact that i personally want one and did some research
same reliable AK action
the gun is actually chambered for 5.56 so it will take both .223 and 5.56
some accuracy issues due to a large moving bolt causing a lot of dynamic motion and momentum, but still "generally" accurate as long as you do your part
tons of mods you can do including moving the trigger guard up to accept pistol grip, and retrofitting the mag well to accept AR mags
I owned a .223 saiga for 3 years and it shot SUPER well! Tight groups and it didn't fling all my brass 10 yards away like my other AKs. Just a nice little pile about 10 feet or so away. Accurate as any AK I've ever owned as well.
I had a 7.62x39 saiga, it was the best built of any AKs I've owned, only downside is that it's "sporterized"
