    Got my ak's the other day,Put about 80 rounds through each so far. Had them all of a week.

    Top one is a Saiga 236, slant cut receiver, 21" barrel, 10 round mags. Has a rail and red dot, that I need to sight in.

    The scary black one is a Wasr 10/63, 30 round mag, adjustable stock (6 position I think), galil style foregrip.
    And the Worthwhile AR grip adaptor from ACE. $10, with grip on here > http://riflestocks.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=326

    So far all I can tell is the Saiga is a far better finished gun, and just feels nicer all around.

    Side note on the Adj. stock. Since stocks like that AR, Ak whatever have a little movement, the heaver recoil of the 7.62 compared to the 5.56 kinda slaps the stock against you face. Also spring tension wasn't really the best on the adjustment lever, stock kept getting shorter first time out, some tinkering, and I fixed that, Think I am going to buy a sheet of pac-skin, to coat the top of the adj stock with, to lessen the face slap.

    As for how they shoot, I haven't got to test them at any kind of decent range, just pistol range 20yards. And I haven't shot irons on a rifle in a long time, So I need to take them out, get them on paper and then report my findings.

    Your Saiga was made in the Molot factory and in the past was imported under the VEPR name.

    Yep, and it's one sweet rifle. Want to get a smaller scope like that red dot for it, maybe 4x.

    If you ever decide to change your foregrip, contact me. =)

    Wood-furniture Saigas, oh what fun.

    Nice! Congrats you can never own too many AK variants!:D

    Not sure about the AR grip however, it just seems out of place on an AK but maybe its just me.

    I love the ar grip, the little nub for between the fingers is a little misplaced on an ak, but now I can put any ar grip on it. (think about getting an AR stock adator and adding an ACE ARFX)

    That Saiga rocks...

    I recently saw one at a gun show with a VEPR beside it...

    The Saiga was $650, the VEPR was $900...

    Wish I had two things at that point:
    • US Citizenship
    • a fist full of cash

    AKA Zero, if you ever decide you don't like that thumbhole stock, you can get a PSL stock on Gunbroker for about $10 and finish and stain it yourself for less than $10. It makes for a very lightweight, very comfortable stock.
