Welcome to the PU, my friend.
BTW, we usually chat about the Saiga rifles in the "AK Talk" forum here. In fact, I've got a few posts of my Saiga conversions the "AK Gallery".
Bottom line, the Saiga is probably the most underrated firearm that I've run across in my years as a shooter.
Indy said it best..."they are among the most rugged, reliable, and simple weapons system on the planet."
I would highly recommend the .223 version. Bottom line, you get the reliability of an AK-47, with the same cartridge used by a Mini-14 and AR-15. Plus, they're a breeze to clean and maintain.
And, despite what you'll hear or read, the Saiga rifles can be very accurate...

Again, check out the "AK Talk" and "AK Gallery" for more information about the Saiga rifles.
