Tells us more about the Saiga. How many rounds, how does it shoot? Who did the conversion?
That is very sleek and compact looking, I really like that setup and rifle! I'm hoping to do a .223 Saiga later on and this would be perfect for it.
I got my rifle from a friend who did the conversion himself. He was inspired by the FN SCAR and built this because he lacked the funds to buy the real thing. Originally it had a Krebs dust cover rail as well but I didn't like the optic setting that high so I removed it and just used the Ultimak.
I've had this rifle about two years now and have run several thousand rounds through it. She'll group just under two inches from off a bench at 100 yards with Russian steel cased ammo. I've heard guys say they get better groups with their Saigas so I guess it's just the way I shoot that makes the difference. This rifle is the one that I shoot the most so when I make a range trip she's usually in the mix.
