Default Arsenal vs. Saiga

This has probably been asked before. Looking to buy an ak. Just looking for some recommendations. I've narrowed down to 2 just wanted to hear some experiences with either one.

I would go with an arsenal any day!!!
I have one and love it! (not saying that saiga is a bad gun) but in my opinion arsenal makes an awesome gun
I know that they are a bit more pricey but deff. Worth it!

They are one in the same if I'm not mistaken. The only difference is Arsenals are converted.

Check out Bravo18. They make some pretty awesome AKs right here in the united states. Might be a little pricey though

Quick pic of one from a magazine. Has a left side charging handle rather than the typical right side.

i imagine price wise once the Saiga is converted they are about the same. I guess it depends on the parts used for the conversion. I was quoted about $800.00 to $900.00 for the Arsenal here in Md.

You can find converted Saigas for $499 but they are not of the same quality.

Looks and feels good but I can't pay that for a ak personally I'd rather but two Romanian aks for that price! But that's just me the gun shop guys spoke really highly of this one.

play the victim, be the victim

Then don't shop at those places. Gun show or local gun shop? That is about $200+ more than what it should be.

Arsenal Saiga Ak47 SGL21 is the best AK variant. Pricey but well worth it..)
Here is mine.
