The Saiga 12

My brother bought one quite a while back and I've shot it a few times at the range. It's reliable, but I don't love it especially as a sporting arm. Oleg Volk did a photoshoot with one a while back. I can understand the folding stock and pistol grip. The 20 round drum must weight a ton, but ok. The dark earth refinish kind of looks nice, I guess.

Honestly I can take or leave all of these improvements. What is a must for a Saigo? Better sights. The stock sight radius is pitiful and the sights are really small. Even the bead on the end of my 590 puts them to shame. Oleg's gun doesn't seem to have these.

"Folking stock?" What, does it turn into a banjo? Because with that magazine, it's a possibility...

But on a serious note, they sell an aftermarket sight for the Saiga that clamps onto the end of the barrel, about where you would find the sight on an AK. This, along with a replacement fixed rear sight, gives you the kind of long sight radius you need to shoot it well.
