I have a saiga 12 and love it.. It took some work to get it running on low brass cheapo loads. There are plenty of videos on youtube that explain how to open the gas ports to optimal size.
I did convert mine to pistol grip that was fairly easy with a minimal amount of experience.
My advise is if you dont do alot of gunsmithing you may want to seek help from someone experienced with saiga 12's.
But when you get it converted and running on all types of ammo, this shotgun will kick a$$ and take names...

Mine is a one of a kind prototype and runs on everything from light loads to 3" Mags.

Saiga's are imported from Russia in a sporting configuration, like a hunting rifle. The law (922r) states that semi automatic military style rifle or shotgun must have so many U.S. made parts. Putting a hunting stock and low capacity mag on an AK47/74 or any other military rifle takes it out of that classification and any parts can be installed that don't remove it from sporter configuration. Like a pistol grip and hi-cap magazine. He had to install more U.S. made parts other than the grip in order to make it legal.

So, in short he changed it from a hunting style to a tactical style.

Most conversions involve moving the fire control group, the trigger assembly forward and putting a pistol grip in its place. Its not necessarily a must have and will cost you $300 or so including the parts to have a gunsmith complete for you...
