No big loss

Ive owned a vepr and some saigas. Currently still have one. Kind of bad this news is, but look, you can still get superior bulgy and yugo rifles. You can still go out and get many decent rifles in any affected caliber, but they might not be Russian. The sun will come up.

I'm still interested in any source documentation as per russian ammo and whether or not it [too] will be banned.

Well, successful gun controls begins and ends with successful ammo control. My advice would be to buy as much as possible. The sooner the better. I could have sworn I have seen TV images of AK laying next to shot up SUV in that recent California bark robbery fiasco (disaster). Like someone above I see dark clouds gathering for the AKM.

This EO has not banned Russian ammo. It is still being shipped here. KC started to build an ammo plant , but it wasn't going to be operational until 2016.

Any updates? I still see Saigas for sale at the LGS and online, and don't recall incredible price increases, at least (or have I been conditioned to see anything less than tripling as 'moderate?'). Are certain models starting to dry up yet?

The shotguns look like they are bringing a premium but I never kept up with them to be certain.

Saiga rifles not so much. Lots of good rifles already on the market I think.

Does anyone know if any AK-12's were imported before the ban.
I've wanted one since I found out about them but this ban probably makes that impossible unless there's already some here.
