Any dealers/stores in the San Antonio/surrounding towns carry saiga rifles?
Nope. Your best bet are the gun shows, and Premier is this weekend.
I've always wondered - is it pronounced "say-guh", "sigh-guh", "say-eye-gah", or something else?
I want a converted Saiga 12 gauge but they've become very hard to find since Sandy Hook.
I have a Saiga I want to unload. PM me if you're interested.

Actually, those went stupid long before Sandy Hook. It was the threat of the ATF reclassifying them as something other than sporting shotguns and the rumors of a possibility of a ban in 2011 that sent the market through the roof. I've wanted one for a while, but not at the prices they demand these days...
Isn't it truly pronounced sai-eeeeeeee-guh. I've seen non converted Saiga 12s for around $900 online and 7.62x39 models for $500. Unfortunately I think the days of $350 saigas is gone. I really like the saiga rifles, only takes a couple hours and $100 to convert them to take standard ak mags and move the FCG forward.
Technically, it should be pronounced "sigh-gah" (like "Saigon" with "ga" instead of "gon") which is the name of a medium-sized goat antelope (Saiga tatarica) of the plains of northern Eurasia; but it's more commonly pronounced "say-guh."
Good to know.
Happily the guns aren't nearly as goofy as their namesake
I bought mine at The Powder Horn in San Antonio. Don't know if they currently have any in stock.
BTW, I speak Russian and can confirm the correct pronunciation is "sigh guh." If you use that, though, you will get strange looks and rude comments.
