I have seen that Tromix makes nice builds of 5.56 AKs on the Saiga platform. However, I have also seen the Arsenal builds- both use Bulgarian Waffle mags, as I understand it. The Arsenal builds are more expensive, but, I am wondering, what is a better platform? Is the Arsenal worth the several hundred more dollars than the Tromix Saiga?
thanks for your help.

I'd like the Arsenal if it had the milled receiver...otherwise I kinda like the Tromix (built on a Saiga) for the money.

Saiga, tromix does a heck of a build, plus you get the Saiga accuracy effect, best Ak bbl maker going , right now; cold pour hammer forged chrome lined bbls, with a 1/7 twist. Very moa out of my standard saiga with the 16 inch bbl.

hammer forged chrome lined bbls, with a 1/7 twistI thought that the Saiga 223s had a 1:9" twist?
