buy a Saiga instead? OK acutally Saiga(s). I have read a lot of opinions here and elsewhere and there seems to be a marginal difference between the M1A and Saiga in .308, especially given the price. The big reason is price. I could have another 12 Ga, get a .223 and still have a .308 for the same price or even a little less. Is this just a stupid idea (don't hold back, it wouldn't be the first time I made one)?
