View Full Version : City-arms in Pacifica now has RAA Saigas

Not affiliated with them, was there this past evening.

Now they are stocking RAA Saigas, there was one on the wall in .223. They had a couple in 7.62 x 39, but they sold out quick. Couple years ago I tried to get them to transfer a Saiga from CWS, but they refused. I guess now they see the light!

They had double star lowers for 160, charles daly 169 and several brands for 220. Couple of uppers, but didn't get the price/caliber.

Good prices on the lowers. Good people as well.

How much for the saigas?

04-21-2009, 8:09 PM
575 I believe was the price.

They usually sell them anywhere from $550 on up.

That's funny, jchen must have been there at the exact same time I was; they sold the last 7.62 Saiga out from under me.

Quarter - I was there at 6:30, next time I'll wear a nametag with my calguns call sign.

Small store; I was probably standing right next to you.

7.62x39 went for $499, where as .223 $529. Note, these are the new California Compliant model from the factory (stamp on the receiver) I too awhile back ask
about a transfer but they didnt wanted to deal with a " modify " California Compliant firearms, cant say I blame them. I asked High Bridge in SF and they were happy
to do the transaction for $75. So we're all happy campers :thumbsup:

Its always a pleasure dealing with D and Uncle V, Prices are very reasonable, they are up front and honest and funny as hell :)

Oh, yeah. and I was probably standing next to the both of you and didnt know there was Calgunners in the house.

We need a secret handshake or something.

Was there yesterday doing a OOS transfer at the time the Saigas were being sold. I can appreciate them even though they are not my thing.

Even if I were miles away City Arms would still a shop solidly on my goto list for various reasons.

This thread reminds me that I need to call uncle V.

Jeez louise, what, was it ALL calguns yesterday? I wish the old Pacifica gun range was still open; it would make a great place to meet up and put a face to the name.

What is this california compliant stamp that you speak of? Saigas are already california compliant if you leave them stock.

^It's just a 'CA' stamp next to the Cyrillic model number on the receiver. Doesn't mean a thing really.

I thought about picking one up to use as a range blaster, since I already have a ton of old 30 rounders and 75 round drums, but I wasn't aware the 'CA' model uses proprietary 10 round mags. Looks like the mag well is shorter and wider than a standard AK type.
