Tell me more about the differences and which one I should get next then because I love my CAI

CAI AK's (provided you got a good one) are good budget AK's that aren't likely to ever be collectible.

Saiga's are Russian made AK's built in a sporter configuration for importation, they can be converted into traditional style AK's.

Arsenal AK's are Saiga's that have been professionally converted, they are very nicely done, but have nothing that cant be done to a Saiga by the user.

Building a fully converted Saiga will be a bit cheaper than buying an Arsenal, so it mostly depends on what you want and how much work you are willing to do.

No problem, if you don't mind the factory Saiga's fore end, then a basic rear conversion can be done for about $150

$350 will get you a lot of ammunition thus knowhow. Both much more valuable than gadgets.

The SKS is a well-made, inexpensive gun which is dependable.

slidefire is a waste of money...6 months of video games will get you a faster trigger finger...
and you'll be more accurate when actually looking thru the sights
