Merry Christmas everyone,
Here's another question from an amateur. I've been checking into a Saiga 308 after reading some discussions about it here in the forum. Do you think this is a good dependable gun? I thought of using it for deer hunting and I'm not sure how many yards it will go.
Also, if you think this is a good gun, can you direct me to place that sells them?
Thanks again for all the help,
Joe

First off, this should be in the rifles forum.

Secondly, for a semiautomatic hunting rifle, the Saiga .308 would be my first choice. It's as light (or lighter) than a Remington 7400 or other, costs a LOT less, and will be a LOT more reliable.

Accuracy? 3MOA, generally. Typical AK. Plenty good for taking of deer.

Talk to Correia, one of our moderators. He's the man to see about Saigas of all types.

Place that sells them? Easy: FMBG (http://www.fbmginc.com) 21" barrel with the wood furniture runs $380.00 or so. I defy anyone to find another "sporting" autoloader for that little, muchless one that will work as well.

well, I have had this rifle, and it is excellent. they come in bbl legnths from 16 inches to 22 inches. a more ak look , to a wood furniture 22 inch bbl, variant.
they have all been very accurate, the ones that i have had, and fired, with a very nicely made bbl. My 16 inch job, will do 2 moa or better , with a variety of milsurp, particularly all former british empire milsurp, including american and canadian. i have one in 762.39 and 223 ,with 16 inch bbls as well, and they are both great, and both moa capable. I don't even bother to scope them, for what I want them to do , out to 200 yds, they just don't need the scope.
