I own both and have owned various Saiga's, WASR is as good for an AK as it gets. Don't spread BS.

I paid $400 in 1988 for a Polytech AKS spiker. It's still in mint condition and I've seen them priced 10X that now. I wish I had the box.

I picked up lightly used Saiga in Oregon for $400 last summer at a pawn shop.(I can buy long guns in OR with my AZ DL, but not handguns)

That ad predates Polytechs existence as a commercially named company instead of just a numbered military manufacturer. Some would argue a Norinco or Polytech stamped gun is worth more but I prefer the no import marked guns.

You've been doing those Franklin Mint collectables for quite some time now. Just don't dump that nice Romanian SKS you displayed for our drooling amusement awhile back.. Much nicer than any Plate or Hummel Figure.
