Dunerunner: I'm curious why you say the Saiga 12 is going the way of the Dodo, Right now, the Saiga 12 is one of the most sought after shotguns in the US. After doing a lot of research, I decided to buy one, right...took about three weeks, finally found one at K-Var Arms in Las Vegas. Being built on the Kalashnikov frame, it is very dependable and functions under the most adverse conditions. There is no end to the modifications available to make it your "Custom" gun. Anyone considering a semi shotgun should Google Saiga-12 and watch the videos. Better buy ASAP as the DC Crowd is looking hard at the Saiga and will probably try to cut off imports, the BATF is supposed to make a decision on May 1.
