Very nice looking looking Saiga, IC! I love Russian firearms. You will love the AK platform. The design and functionality are legendary. The .223/5.56 round has better cumulative ballistics and inherent accuracy than the 7.62 x 39, so this gun should still prove to be pretty accurate. Just make sure that your barrel is indeed chambered for 5.56 before shooting it, otherwise gas pressure issues will occur.
This is my new toy:
VEPR 12 (12 Gauge) Semi-automatic shotgun
It's newly imported from Molot in Russia. Basically, they took everything that was wrong with the Saiga 12 shotgun and made it better. It is your standard AK platform and functionality with a chrome lined barrel and gas chamber. This thing has a self-regulating gas system as well, so it will shoot anything from bird shot to 3" magnum loads without a hiccup. I finally got to shoot it last week, and this thing is an absolute fukcing beast!
