If they are smart enough to do that, I would definitely buy one, no questions asked.

Do all the saigas come with the chopped rear/slant cut receiver?
No; only the Saiga 308 Ver. 21, shown here:


All the other Saiga models have a standard square-cut receiver like any other AK.

I thought they did that to all of them, thought that was a big part of the conversion back-fixing the slant cut.


Why did they do that to the 308?

Nope..

The receivers with the dimples and extra X Y routinely come without the PG hole cut though.

It's only that particular model of .308; the others are square-cut like the shotguns and smaller-caliber rifles. My guess is that it has something to do with the Izhmash takeover of Molot a couple years ago. Maybe that particular model is built at Molot using a VEPR-type receiver? Sure looks similar to this VEPR:

I'm the one that posted that about the 5.45 saiga on ar15.com. I emailed RAAC on Monday about them importing a 5.45 saiga. Tuesday I received an email back stating the paperwork is being approved by the ATF, and it could happen by the end of the year. The guy's name is Clyde Woods, Sales and Marketing, RAAC. I have no reason to lie about it, but if you don't believe me, email them yourself and ask.
