As they become harder to come by, we are going to hear about how great these Russian Saigas are. I've shot them. Not as accurate as Yugos. Much sturdier than the WASR garbage that's out there. I would like to have one but not at an inflated price.

I say, whatever. I think Bakail shotguns is a much bigger loss..............

The prices are generally flat. I don't know where some of you found the "insanity". It is hot air. Have all Saigas you want $700 apiece, today.

How is a WASR garbage? Have you ever pulled the trigger and it not fire?

let me re-state my opinion (so as to not pi** off any WASR enthusiasts)

From a matched tolerance / quality of furniture / quality of trigger / non-canted front sight standpoint, the WASRs have the potential for great improvement

just a personal opinion.

I wouldn't buy an AK when they were under $100. Why would I buy one now? They are almost as accurate as a spitball and have about the same power level. Get yourself a real rifle! A rifle that resembles this rifle.

Mine are accurate enough to hit everything I need within 100 yards. If I was a sniper I would probably want something else but I have found the accuracy discussion to be off base. As powerful as a spitball? I think it is the number one battle rifle in the history of the world? I wonder why? You would think a spitball would not be that effective.

Below is a three shot string of spitballs fired from the PAP AK shown above, offhand at 50 yards. An opinion is only as good as the facts supporting it.

Tell you what. Do I get to name the situation? Cause as much as I admire that pretty BAR, wish I had one, and the .270 or .308 round is very nice......it can't provide sustained suppression fire, or take the beating an AK can, and most importantly you can get, what, 4-5 decent AK variants for the price of that BAR? So let's say 4 X 30 RDS versus 5 or 10? I don't like those odds, John. As for a hunting rifle give me the Browning !

A 3x SIG prismatic. The tall cheekrest makes it difficult to use the irons but works well with optics.
