It was a converted Saiga .308. Not that uncommon. You can buy one yourself and convert it in your garage in about 5 hours.

Yes it was probably a converted Saiga 7.62x51. I have one that was converted with an Ace folding stock and Ergo pistol grip. Do you think the AK you saw was a 1990s vintage Yugo AK? Those were nice and the price was nice but mags were hard to find.

It also could have been a Vepr, Valmet, or Galil.

Could it have been a preban Yugo (Mitchell)?

More than likely one of the Saiga's etc as described above.

I agree with the others I would bet it was a Saiga converted to look more like traditional AK.

It could have been a Vepr or Valmet as well.

If they had a lot of money it could of been a krebs custom, but doubtful.
