    I am planning to buy a new Saiga 7.62x39 sometime next month. I will be buying online so I wont be able to look before I pay. I have heard about century and IO, that you should really check out how its put together before buying it. So is there anything out there that i could TRUST will be built right and cost between 350 and 450? Which ak could I rely on, getting to my ffl the way it should be, for that price?

    The Saigas are GTG. They are all built in Russia. My Saiga is my favorite AK.

    I don't know what the cost in PA but here in TX they are about the same. Cabelas had WASR10 rifles on sale for 350.00. If you go to a gunshow, you should be able to pick up an AK for the same price as a Saiga. I bought a Romanian Draco pistol for 405 .00 (drive out) and it shoots excellent. Nothing against Saiga cause I have one, haven't shot it yet so I don't know how it will function after I modded it. Just a pain to go though to convert it to reg. AK style or leave as is and pay high dollar for mags. Just sayin.
