Izmash produces Saigas. They also produced the original Kalashnikov.
Yup. Lots of people convert them back to the normal AK configuration. They were gone for a while, I even called WPA (wolf performance arms, one of the big importers) and they said the factory shut down. Century also imported them and during the Panic Buy century stopped importing them, as of now century has them back and it looks like they are back on the market.
