I am whatever I say I am
Pros and Cons? Which is better overall?
Ya man, its shorter, detached mag, much easyer to upgrade/customize, you can get a folder kit and make it really compact, mags are everywhere and you have the option of 5 rnd, 10rnd, 20rnd, 30rnd, 40rnd mags, and drums. Its MUCH MORE scarry looking, more fun to shoot, its a great AK, and its a real Russian AK at that. You will have a lot more fun at the range with a Saiga vs. a SKS in my opinion. You can do almost anything you could imagine to a AK.Coastie Kyle, any particular reason why you prefer Saiga over SKS?
No it won't. Not a real imported AK mag. You can buy US made magazines made specially for the Saiga (Surefire, AGP, etc), but a true AK mag will not work on a stock Saiga. In order for it to work, a bullet guide has to be installed and the mag needs a little filing work to make it fit correctly. If you are using real AK mags on a stock Saiga, you better get in compliance with 922 or you are looking for a heap of trouble.This is not so.
The Saiga AK which that I just purchased will accommodate AK magazines, out-of-the-box.
