Hey guys im in need of info! Im looking into a saiga rifle .223 but im not experienced with the brand. Please any info is great info!
There is no such thing as a "surplus AK" for sale in the USA. The reason that you see AKs costing so much (compared to completely foreign made AKs [WASRs, Saigas]) is that they are completely rebuilt here in the USA from cut up military rifles parts.They are great inexpensive semi auto rifles compared to surplus AK's. You can convert them to pistol grip and install a bullet guide to use regular AK mags. Surefire makes very good quality mags if you choose to stay factory. I prefer the 7.62x39 due to the ammo being cheaper than .308 or .223.
