So Ive been lookin around day dreamin about guns all day long while im at work. I was on Atlantic Firearms site and of course they have all sortsa fun goodies and I came across this:


So this is a Russian Saiga AK .308 with a 10rd mag. If I put a mag lock on this puppy, would this be CA lega? Of course Id have them ship it in to my FFL minus the pistol grip.

I was looking at the DOJ banned list, and the only thing i see regarding Saiga is 'Kalashnikov USA Hunter Rifle/Saiga' which, this does NOT seem to fall under since its not named specificly.

Thanks for your time ;)

Yes, you could put a mag lock on that and it would be legal. You would have to remove the grip and flash suppressor or fix the mag before having it shipped to your FFL. For a grand you could have a real nice FAL though.

Another question,
Why would this rifle be more costly than the sportorized version? Like double the cost!
Arent they pretty much the same except for the furniture?
