I live near Auburn, Al and I probably could get one online but everyone online is looking like they are sold out as well!

Get Arsenal Saiga AK 47. Pricey but its the best AK American made. Spend once and you wont regret it. IMO

I bought a converted Saiga from Classic Arms about three weeks ago. Saigas have Russian dimpled receivers and Russian barrels. I paid $479. It has the Tapco G2 trigger, welded bullet guide for standard AK mags, and a side mounted scope mount. The quality is better than WASRs. It has the sporter style front hand guard but a standard AK hand guard can be installed. My brother has a WASR and hasn't had any problems but for the same money I decided the Saiga was a better deal.

Does it have threads under the collar for a muzzle device?

I'm not sure. I didn't take a real close look at the front of the barrel to see. I'll take a closer look at it when I get home this evening and report back. That Arsenal conversions are probably the best Saiga conversions right now. They're a little more money bit they come ready to go without anything else left to do on them.
