Can anyone tell me about the Saiga rifles in 7.62x39? Know nothing about them but am interested.

Saw one for $395 new....is that a good price?

What's to know?

They're sporterized Kalashnikovs.

45 minutes with basic hand tools and some new AK furniture and you get something like this:

Since the election furor has hit high speed, I can't comment on the price. Two weeks before the election, you could get a NIB Saiga in .223 or 7.62x39 from various vendors for around $300.

I take that back....mine doesn't have the pistol grip...where did you get yours? Was it easy to put on?
Easy as fallin' off a log while drunk. The hard part is figuring out what you want it to look like when you're done (folding stock, fixed stock, etc).

You can do it in your garage in less than a hour with common hand tools.

If you're in the Houston area, I hold build parties often.

Not in the Houston area, im near san antonio. i saw some kits require moving the trigger? i just want something that bolts right to the gun without changing anything mechanically.

You can certainly use those, but you'll find the balance and ergos are much improved when you add a pistol grip and move the trigger group back to where Mr. Kalashnikov wanted it in the first place.
