For a foriegn saiga rifle,it must be imported in compliance with 922r. You can't attach a pistol grip or use high capacity magazines or have any features of a "assault rifle". You can convert it to be able to legally use these type of items such as high-cap mags,pistol grips,bayonet lugs,flash-hiders by putting 4 (four) U.S. made parts in it (as far as AK type weapons go,other rifle platforms require different amount of U.S. made parts based on total number of parts). Most people achieve the four U.S made parts by replacing the fire control group with a American made one which counts as three parts (trigger,hammer,and sear) and then attaching a American made stock or fore-end.
The whole premise this law is that a so called "assault rifle" that's made with no American parts is somehow more evil or dangerous than one with American parts in it.
Yea... I know its goofy. But that our politicians for you.
So in short,no you can't use anything above ten round magazines in a unconverted saiga rifle legally.
