RWC. About $450. Is that a good price? New. Starter "AK". What do y'all think about this model?

Can't go wrong with a saiga, the conversion is pretty easily done as well. Not sure about the price but the way everything has jumped up is probably pay it.

Turning it into the AK model with pistol grip and you have to move the trigger group.

I'm pretty sure you have to do the 922 because "assault weapons" have to have 5 American made parts to be imported.

Edit for clarity, 922r dictates it cannot have more than 10 imported parts once converted

Yea I've never done it, but I'm pretty sure its done with a few basic hand tools. Either way the saiga is a great rifle.
