Sorry bud.....just found it....from another blog online.

I have a type 07 FFL (manufacturing and dealer), and one of the hottest selling items lately has been converted Saiga 12 shotguns. Due to a recent "study", Russian American Arms is no longer importing Saiga shotguns (according to my distributors). We have three distributors who deal directly with RAA, they're all on hold pending the outcome of the ATF paper recently released. ATF is accepting "comments" through May 1st, but the distributors are already pulling the product line. According to Ellet Brothers and RSR group, they're prepared to even remove the inventory tags from their databases. I'm hoping the distributors are overreacting, that nothing has been actually banned yet, and that merely high demand has cleaned them out, but no one knows for sure. Even other dealers have been responding to rumors going around.

A quick reminder, Saigas are essentially built on AK platforms, but made to conform to all "assault weapons ban" forms such as no pistol grip, low capacity magazine, no bayonet lug. These are often converted once in the US to include pistol grips, better triggers, and the like.

The ATF paper is linked below. http://www.atf.gov/publications/firearms/012611-study-on-importality-of-certain-shotguns.pdf

So this is a reaction to an import issue raised by the ATF? I don't have time, or my Lucky Charms Decoder ring, to decypher the ATF link.

Someone got the Cliff Note edition for a working man?

I guess I have to move out of the US now, I've always wanted a saiga 12 guage for home defense and what not. But with this ugh I think that there going to fare with all this, it doesen't take a rocket scientist to figure out that this sucks if it is going to really to happen.
