Hey all,

Saw that Classic Arms is is selling Saigas for 549. Seems it has been converted to AK style, 922 compliant and able to use any magazine. Is this a good deal?

Aloha,
HIPunch

edit: guess this is also similarly priced on other sites :)

So I guess the question would be is $61 worth the labor to convert it to you?

I asked the same question on the saiga-12 forum. Responses varied from "you're crazy if you buy it" to simply "the conversions are really bad on those"..... so caveat emptor..........

I think it would be much better to buy and do the conversion yourself, plus you really learn about your rifle in the process, and it's not hard. If I can do it, you can.

I concur, easy conversion and you can use the extra money to replace the front stock, hardware to the AK style.
