Our Assessment:  This semi-auto rifle was named after the saiga antelope, an animal almost as rare as these Russian import firearms. Built on the traditional Kalashnikov-style rifles, this sporterized firearm can become a simple defense tool, your trusty hunting rifle, or just a sweet range toy. This rifle, with its detachable magazines and sleek build, offers speed, sturdiness, and the reliability AK enthusiasts love from Russian made Kalashnikov rifles. It’s up to you to run this gun through its paces or keep it as your newest safe queen…either way it would definitely be a jewel in your collection! The great condition of this firearm and the potential “coolness” factor of an AK platform should tempt everyone to add this Saiga to their lineup. Good Luck!
