I vote for the 7.62 Saiga too. I have one -- and I don't understand why people will pay two or three times as much for a used and rebuilt Romanian piece of junk when they can have the real deal, new in the box, made in the Izhmash armory where General Kalashnikov himself still has an office, for under $400. You can get 30-round mags from Missisippi Auto Arms that don't require gunsmithing, and I like the sporter-style stock better than the pistol grip anyway. Built like a tank, won't break, cheap ammo (as in 1K quality Russian-made rounds for well under $300), and always goes bang. What's not to love?
