Maybe you guys can tell me why some like them and others don't.
Tough to get a grip on a "sporter" rifle?
Is this you?
I guess you mean sporter saiga, those are indeed crappy for getting a grip but that's why you convert them... The thing is though, even with a grip wrap over a standard AK pistol grip, you have a better grip than the crappy way saigas come in their sporter config. As far as why? Changing magazines without fumbling with tools and such is a bit easier(of course there's also the benefit of being able to use high cap magazines if you've got them as well).
