    I'm not sure if these guys have what you are looking for, but they have one of the widest variety of parts I've found so far. http://www.dinzagarms.com/

    Here's a popular forum to ask specific Saiga questions. They have a Saiga 20 section. http://forum.saiga-12.com/

    i appreciate the links.im not finding out what other sights besides what came on it marked with 1-3 hundred yards only will work with the length of this barrel.it seems to me this may be a critical factor,and can only find rear military sights in 16 inch and rpk barrel length.would the rpk be "close enough"or way out there?im not really experienced in this area.i really hope to even just have the standard 1-10 scale,let alone a windage adjustable sight.not too keen with peeps for some reason.my vision seems somewhat off,but ok with the rear leaf.my other has a scope,so am i trying to do the undoable?thanks for the input.

    Being a shotgun, its possible that windage adjustable sights are considered an impractical addition.

    I'm fairly new to these Saiga shotguns myself. I'll be purchasing a Red Jacket Classic Saiga 12 on Monday, my first after fairly extensive research.

    You're right, I did. I saw the Saiga 20 and stopped absorbing information right there. :eek:

    well i think ive figured out the deal today.i compared the sights on a wasr and the saiga.they are the same .the wasr has the standard 16 inch barrel who would of guessed they would or could work on a 20 inch barrel also,ill be picking up an adjustable bulgarian sight from copes soon .does anyone have a better place or better deal out there? im new at the ak stuff thanks
