    I'll stick with my SGL-21. It's trying to make the AK design into a different direction from it's simplistic beauty. EVERYTIME that I shoot it, I reminded of why I love it so much.

    This afternoon me and a buddy were shooting our ARs and I brought out the SGL-21 and while not as accurate, it's just plain works perfectly 100% everytime.

    You guys are trying way to hard to inport ban this rifle. It's just a saiga with an updated gas system, nothing more ;)

    Really, really want it, even though apparently it has as much chance of coming into the country as Joe Biden starring in the next "Art of the Dynamic Shotgun" video. :D

    I read the list prior to posting. And yet your response fails to take into account my previous point, that various distinct Izhmash Saiga models (IZ-110, IZ-114, IZ-250, IZ-340, IZ-132, IZ-235, etc.) are all imported under the "Saiga Semi-auto Rifle" heading. They are not named out specifically, despite the fact that many of them are quite different, with different features, calibers, and appearances.

    These models mentioned above are NOT the "Saiga-308 Semi-auto Rifle", "Saiga-308-1 Semi-auto Rifle" "Saiga-308-2 Semi-auto Rifle", or the "Saiga-9 Semi-auto Rifle"

    It is not a stretch to group a "sporterized" Saiga MK107 under the "Saiga Semi-auto Rifle" name, since that's exactly what is it. Now would that be successful? There's no way to know unless you are a BAFTE lawyer. They are notoriously inconsistent in their decisions.

    When a poster resorts to correcting grammar is when I realize their argument is getting pretty thin.

    I have unsuccessfully tried to Form 6 firearms (a TIGR) from Russia. I am only telling you what the feds told me.

    It's a pretty neat firearm. It would be cool if the powers that be allow it to be imported. Like some of the other contributors, in this ponderous gas system I see needless complexity, where others see innovation. The two modifications to the typical Kalashnikov evident in the example that appeal to me are the left side bolt handle and the cross bolt safety.

    Nonetheless, and irregardless ( :rolleyes: ) it would be a neat addition to inventory at the LGS.

    I saw a youtube video of one being fired on full auto in 5.45. It did seem to work very well although with it's muzzle break a 74 has minimal recoil and muzzle climb to begin with.

    The one reason I can see it being rejected is that the counterweight serves absolutely no real purpose in a civilian semi-auto configuration. All it does is reduce the already-negligible recoil, and the positive effect is seen only when sending a lot of lead downrange rapidly. In other words, it has no "sporting" benefit.

    I would say a faster follow-up shot on a wounded animal is a sporting purpose.

    I was thinking the same thing.
