I converted my saiga myself on the kitchen table of a crappy apartment with a drill dremil tool and a punch and hammer. Get a saiga convert it and you wont regret it. The only thing that got me sweating was drilling and tapping the trunian for the bullet guide. I used a drill press for that but after doing it I can't say it was hard

I dont care if it has a folding stock or a fixed no biggy as it will just be another battle rifle to add to the collection
How about this one?

Saiga *IS* russian . Made by the same izmash factories that have been producing AKs almost since the begining of that model production.

Ak is a toy , can be used for others stuff but if you want a accurate 762x39 then pick you up a SKS , I have 3 a russian , yugo and norinco , the nornico it a strap to the atv then throw it in the turck bed for a few days , its my utility gun
my russian is fully loaded and still had packing straw shoved in it , thats my 2nd long range gun under the 7rem mag and my ak was a sidefolder but now its a fix but very reliable not accurate AT ALL
