I have a 223 cal Saiga,and they are fun little guns to shoot. It will out shoot my Mini 14 hands down,but is nowhere near as accurate as an AR,or quality bolt action rifle,but within 100+ yrds they will hold there own as long as you just want a good shooter and not a match rifle. I bought mine when they were first imported for next to nothing,and they have shot up in price now like everything else.
I think he's talking about the saiga rifles, not the shotguns. Otherwise he would've started this post in the shotgun section of the forum. But, yes... the saiga shotguns are awesome!doctruptwn:
If I could justify buying a shotgun, it would be a Saiga, such as the 12, and I don't even use shotguns. Don't yet use them, but any Kalashnikov combat shotgun, if not a rifle, would be the type to have (Youtube clips).
The old mint-condition Remington (grandfather's) sits in a closet and I've never touched it, and brother won't use it but won't trade it).
My brother and I watched some gentlemen from Alliance Arms test their fully automatic drum-fed Saiga 12 at a club range outside Evansville IN last August, as they developed a patent.
It was most impressive.
