Oh sweet Jesus and all the apostles, what in the absolute fuck happened to that poor Saiga, and who thought that it was a good idea?

Yeah, but doesn't the outside make you kinda wonder what kind of stupidity might have been done to the inside?

That front grip looks like it has seen better days.


Betcha seller bought it and thought it was a good deal than he realized what he had.

Nothing that can't easily be fixed, except that it's a 223. It's certainly not a safe queen. Strip it down and you basically have a barreled receiver that needs a new gas block and and FSB, what's a well used saiga barreled receiver in 223 worth? Not as much as a 7.62 or 5.45.

I don't know, there might be a run on .223 AKs if cheap Russian 5.45 and 7.62x39 falls victim to sanctions. Plus, it's a Saiga, so it'd be a good basis for an AK-101 or 102 clone.

I wonder how bad that front trunnion is.

I’ll give 10:1 odds that Bubba used a Dremel tool to “mill” that adapter to fit.

Not worth $600 when cleaner examples are out there for the same money.
