The Saiga autoloading rifle is based on the rugged Kalashnikov design. In the Saiga line of rifles, this timeless design utilizes a proven gas piston system, rotary bolt, and very few internal parts that provide the reliability that Izhmash has delivered for over 60 years. A hammer forged, chrome lined barrel and chamber provide the ultimate in long life. The driftable post front sight with protective ears is adjustable for windage and elevation. The notched side catch with bar rear leaf sight is adjustable for elevation. The rear sight has presets for 109, 218, & 328 yards. The comfortable, ergonomic operating handle makes charging the firearm effortless. The spring loaded magazine release provides for quick magazine changes. The elongated selector handle allows for a smooth transition from safe to semi-auto.

This is one fine rifle. The craftsmanship, the action on this rifle is amazing. I ordered an extra 8rd. Saiga magazine for it. I am thinking about a conversion on this one, but have not decided about that. Bought it on the lawaway plan, this is a great way to do it. You still get the cash discount price and you don't have that credit card interest. I have bought about 30 guns from Buds. Their service is great, products have always arrived on time and in excellent condition. They are where I shop first and last.

I spent about an hour on a long review, and bud's logged me out and forgot it when asking me to log back in.
So this won't be as detailed as I was hoping to be, but I'm not writing that all out again.

Some key points, though:

eats through any 308 or 7.62x51, including cheap steel case
thick chrome-lined barrel, about as accurate as AKs will get, plenty durable, I bet it'll last 10k rounds
recoil lets you know its there, but is comfortable
lefty friendly, ejection angle is forward, actually more forward than rightward
easy to field strip, if you follow the manual
decent aftermarket for parts, some compatible from AK stuff
mags are convertible to 10, there are 15, 20, and 25rd mags available.

-heavy, front heavy
-my extractor had some machining marks jutting out of it that made manual extraction really tough, had to take apart the bolt to fix that, which was a big bother to get back together
-my gas block pin is a bit of wire jammed in and bent to fit the handguard over it. Disappointing!
-not the most durable of finishes, the safety immediately cut a groove in it
-monte carlo stock on a blocky AK receiver. This izhmash mishmash makes for pretty bad ergonomics.
-the moved-rearward trigger is bad, you pull your finger back, and the angled trigger slides along your finger upwards. Or you could lift it, that's weird too, though.
-since it's imported, there's 922r laws restricting modifications
-not very suitable for a muzzle device, front sight's in the way
-standard AK sights, not suitable to 308, I think

Overall, 4/5 as a base rifle for conversion, 2.5/5 as is.
