Even those Saiga's have jumped up in cost. As I have researched to help me narrow down, many have steered me clear of the mini 14 and some have suggested the SKS. So searching for ammo this am for my 92S I see this SKS for what appears to be a pretty good deal. Also considering Saiga Sub2000 in beretta 9 as I can use clips from the 92S. Maybe I'll trade my 336c in but I do like the lever guns but damn, 30/30 ammo is expensive.
30/30 ammo expensive???? Dude its 13$ a damn box, buy a box of federal premium 458 win mag then tell me 30/30 ammo is expensive, come on,

Thanks. I saw the hole and the guys hand when i Googled the issue. No hole in mine and the acuracy is far better than my AK. Really nice gun, certainly for the money!
