Okay, here's the deal. I have a completed Stag OLL, my first AR. I really want to get a Stag upper put on it, because I have never even fired an AR and can't wait to get out on the range. However, I also have a real bad itch for a Saiga .308. I am going to eventually convert it to accept standard AK furniture, but that will be in the future. I do already have a Vector AK, which is the same family as the Saiga. What do you think?

Of course Saiga 308.

ARs can wait. Saigas might dissapear tomorrow.

I think that you should probably ask the Calguns member who goes by Fantismo (or something close to that), he will definitely tell you.

I only have AR, so I am not much help here--but the more the merrier though!

Also, duenor sort of has a point.

I own both. Get a Saiga 308. Prices on those babies keep going up. Over $100 since last November when I got mine for less than 420 out the door after purchasing, shipping, FFL fees. The AR is slightly more economical and practical to shoot, but the Saiga 308 definitely has that fun "boom" aspect that people love so much.

That was my logic also. It looks like LAN World has the Saiga .308 in stock. I can get that now, then an upper whenever I get the chance. Even if some ban goes into effect, I will still be able to get an upper but probably not a Saiga.

Damn. I'm lucky I got my Saiga .308 (21" barrel) when it was like 380 or something like that. IMHO, get a Saiga as someone stated they might disappear tomorrow on the whim of the ATF.:mad:

Get a Saiga .308, and if you can, get the one with Wood rather than the black synthetics stock/handguard. I own the 21" .308 in all black, and I wish I had gotten the wood stock/handguard instead after seeing one in real life - it looks like it's much better quality, plus the wood gives it a better balance.

I own an AR as well, and it's fun, but the Saiga .308 has the fun factor, plus it makes heads turn at the range.

Also, you can buy an upper anytime.

Why not a saiga in the original 7.62x39? The ammo is cheaper.

Get the saiga, I know they are cheaper than finishing off your ar but any ak type rifle will be harder to get in the future because of the barrels being cut. The saiga .308 is a hell of a rifle to shoot.
