You might could find it a little cheaper if you look around, but a lot of non converted ones I've seen online have been going for about $400.

If you don't know of another one nearby, I'd grab it. IF that's what you want. I don't know much about them, other than I would like to have one.

Sounds reasonable to me.. They are great rifles and can take a beating and keep on shooting.. If you get it tho.. Spend the extra money and convert it.. Value goes up and it's such a better gun afterwards...

So... The washer they give you for the trigger guard juts out a bit. A Dremel sanding disc took care of that.
The replacement stock has no holes, and must be drilled before using the original screws.

To add... I said that a Dremel sanding disc takes care of that. To clarify. I am referring to dremeling a space in the stock that slides (more like must be beaten with foul language) into the rear of the receiver. I had to Dremel a space here in order for it to slide over the trigger guard washer.

There's a lot of customization you can do on these saigas, but you gotta be brave enough to jump in and drill, chop, saw...
