OK, I'm going to go with 7.62 Russian instead of .308. The vote on the other thread is unanimous, and the reasoning makes sense to me. Next question: Saiga sporter or straight-up AK? Advantages, disadvantages? Prices seem to be comparable. Saiga is Russian-made, while the AKs seem to be Romanian or ?. What should I watch out for? Is there really any advantage to a milled or heavy-duty (1.6 mm) receiver in an AK?
