    Went to a gun show yesterday, saw a Saiga 308 for a price I couldn't turn down, so I picked it up. Range results to follow.

    My question though, is I also picked up a stripped lower from Superior Arms. I want a basic 20" rifle, and the price was right on the lower ($100). Are they any good? I've not having much luck finding reviews.

    Oh my understanding is that Superior is as good as any - hard to screw up a stripped lower.

    Nice job on the acquisitions! :)

    Superior arms makes fine lowers. I have 2 of them. One i built into a varminter and the other is awaiting a 16 inch upper. Fit and finish are nice. The one i have on my varminter has held up to a couple seasons of use and plenty of rounds.

    It wasn't converted, it's the basic synthetic black stock type. 16' BBL and only $400 (everywhere else I looked was at least $100 more). Came in box with two 8 round mags and the little cleaning kit.
