I'm thinking of buying a saiga and don't want to pay the bucks for special mags.
In order for Saiga to import their rifles, they are "sporterized" to meet BATF regs. So the fcg and mag was altered. You can buy standard Saiga mags and pay the price or you can mod the reciever to accept standard AK47 mags. If you choose to do this, you have to make it BATF compliant. What this is is a feed ramp adapter that is installed at the base of the reciever feed ramp. And you have to drill and tap the receiver and make a minor alteration to the mag locking tang on the fromt of the mag. Sounds like a pain in the butt, but it is fairly easy to do with the right tools and basic mech. skills.
