Saigas are NOT ak's
. Everyone seems to think they are, but they are not. Different internal designs, parts, etc.
Chinese norincos, Egyptian maadis, bulgarians, or polish wz.
Some of the good ones out there.
I don't get into the whole milled vs stamped argument. Both reliable with pros and cons. Get what you like. Get a true double stack. Polished bolt carriers are a big plus. And get the furniture you like.
I have a polish1960 with Warsaw furniture. Us palm battle grip, milled reciever, factory irons . Yes it was imported by cai but that's it. It's s polish parts kit, in a us made reciever and barrel made to original blue prints. Love the gun, paid $590
