    Has maybe 300 rounds through it, runs beautifully and is fairly accurate for an open sighted rifle. I was able to put 10 rounds into a 3" group at 100 yards.

    It is set up to run off Bulgarian 223 magazines, however it will run on the single Galil steel magazine I have as well. Includes the Romanian wire folder stock which is apparently not so readily available any more and not pictured but has a MOE RVG rail installed and an Ergo VFG mounted.

    Looking for $600 in Vancouver only. You must pick this up.

    TRADES
    M&P 45 - factory threaded barrel option preferred but not required. FDE is also preferred but again.. not required ;)
    CZ 452 or 455 Varmint + some cash, depending on model and condition
    Savage/Stevens centerfeed action + cash
    Colt M1991 or Springfield Mil Spec or GI 1911
    Beretta 92

    Includes the pictured Bulgarian Circle 10 223 magazine, Galil Steel Magazine, and a modified factory 10 rounder. The factory bolt hold open device is installed as well.

    I am kind of surprised this has not sold yet.

    Saiga's run around $350 to $400 now in sporter configuration. This one has been properly converted with a CSS trigger guard and bullet guide that is installed via drilling and tapping the trunnion. It feeds silky smooth and the Bulgy mags lock up tight but insert and remove easily. You won't find a better 5.56mm rifle at this price.

    Yes it is :) I thought I responded to your earlier PM regarding the trade?

    Still available and now that I don't *have* to sell it the price is firm :)

    That is a nice looking Saiga and a very fair price. Don't know why this one has not sold, way better rifle than most of the "kit" AK's on the market and Saiga's are a bit hard to find and all the work is already done.

    To bad you are not further north.

    Good luck.

    Thanks! It's a nice shooter.

    The only partial trade I'll consider now is a CZ 452 or 455 Varmint. I bought the 442 I wanted so I don't need any handguns.

    Still available. An M&P 9 or 45 with a factory threaded barrel might interest me.

    I've been bombarded with requests for more pictures but haven't had access to a camera again until yesterday...

    It's in excellent shape... there is some rubbing on the factory PAINT but nothing substantial or ugly that I can find other than a little scratch on the FSB. Apparently the Russians parkerize these then paint them. Ceramic engine enamel is a perfect match as well as you can tell from the pic in the first post where the factory trigger plate was removed and the exposed metal under it painted.

    I should add that it takes unmodified GALIL steel or Bulgarian 223 mags. Bulgy 223 mags are the best as the GALIL mags are often worn out when we get them here in the states. The GALIL steely that comes with this runs perfectly in this rifle.

    Is this tapped or can it be tapped for a picatinny rail?

    As long as this thread is not locked, it's still available. There are some trades listed in the first post too.

    Final bump. This is still available and price is still firm. Little more flexible on trades.
