Any comments on the AK47 Saiga I found one on Atlanticfirearms.com for 359.00 seems to be a great deal just wondering if it is an OK gun to buy? Anyone have one they can drop some intel??

Thanks

Does this member operate a shop in the LA/OC area?
If so, I'd prefer to go that way when I'm ready to buy my own.

What he said. But if you have very specific questions, just ask.

Quite true. When you pop the cover off just take a peek inside - you will see the pistol grip hole and proper trigger hole cut, just waiting to be used. :D

I was going to ask about that.
I was looking over the site the describes the modification on the 223, and it was moderately involved, including adding a half-pipe behind the chamber to guide the round. I couldn't really understand that, since the modifications are all in the trigger group... but I've not looked inside one so I don't know.

So would I be correct in assuming that any standard AK furniture and accessories (other than mags), including AR style stocks, Israeli pistol grips, and AK bipods are a bolt-on... including the AK bullet button?

I think the Saiga is the absolute best-value AK you can buy, especially for its price.
