I think yes! :drool5:

What do you guys think? Which should I be looking at for my second gun? This (or a similar FAL platform), or the Saiga (which I might later convert to an AK)?

I've always liked the FAL :rolleyes:

But I also like the Saiga :D

Vepr Hunter...featureless and heavy barrel. AR10ish for just a few hundred more.

Hmm. The Vepr looks pretty decent. I still like the FAL :P For a plain black rifle, it looks pretty sexy. I must save for all of them:43:

I can't afford to buy nor feed an FAL but I want you to live vicariously through me so buy one! From the...decent research on did on these, I'd recommend to go with DSA over Enterprise because of what I hear in quality and in customer service.

Yeah I was looking at the price tag just now (I had looked prior but I guess I was rather caught up in the utter beauty of the firearm)... And it's quite a bit more than I can afford right now. Twice what I would need to spend on a decent Saiga 7.62x39 or .308... And the ammo is WAY more expensive than I can afford right now :\ Guess it's back to the original idea of a Saiga/ak for the time being. Someday though... I want this gun :D

Haha same. Well, if you want the same awesome but pricey caliber but with a lower initial start cost:

I also want that one in my safe.

The PTR is a great option for a battle rifle. I love mine and it eats everying I have put in it thus far. I still like my FAL better but the PTR is not far behind it.

You could get a .308 saiga too. I really like the krebs .308 socom saiga except it's 2k :(

The saiga .308 isn't that expensive. About $800 if you shop around from what I've seen.

A FAL type is not a Saiga! The FAL is sexier, but get both :D

Yes, I know that they are not the same. I'm considering getting both.

Do you have a link to the product detail page? I'd like to see the barrel length and the other specs.

I looked up the rifle on Enterprise, they only make it one way as far as "Standard" goes. Looks nice... Wish I had the cash right now :\ looks like Saiga is coming first. My brother is getting a 762x39 upper for his AR15 so I'll probably share ammo with him (: But I am looking forward to one of these :D

Saiga 308 will not share the same ammo as 7.62x39. .308 is 7.52x51 if that is what you meant.

-.- I know this. I want a Saiga 7.62x39 OR a Saiga .308/7.62x51, AND/OR a FAL .308. YES I KNOW that a .308 has a higher pressure rating. I'm inclined to go with a 7.62x39 Saiga because the ammunition is cheaper. I'll get a Tikka, or Savage, or Rem700 .308 bolt action if I go that route. Thanks for trying to help though, I don't mean to sound arrogant. My computer battery is dying.

No worries. Just making sure.
