    Why don't I have a custom title by now?!

  1. This pic isn't of my individual rifle, but is a better representation of the type of rifle I have. Yes, the scratch on the receiver is supposed to be there, it's on every AK-style weapon ever.



    Today, I got a new rifle, a Russian Saiga 7.62x39. It's a "sporterized" AK-47 made by Izmash. $378 after sales tax, $349.99 was the sticker price. Not bad for a brand new rifle. It comes with the sling studs imbedded in the stock, a cleaning rod, cleaning kit (jag, brush, some kind of weird poker and a screwdriver) and a little plastic bottle to keep cleaner in or something. It also has the "dovetail" side-mount, all I need to do is buy a base if I want to throw some optics on it, but I probably won't.

    An interesting note, this rifle was made at the very same factory as my Mosin-Nagant M91/30 rifle that was made in 1927! They're brothers in arms, heh.

    It uses a proprietary magazine design, making it incompatible with regular AK-47 magazines, they are, however, still double-stack. Since I live in New York, I can only legally own magazines that hold 10 rounds or less. Fucking things are expensive, like $30 apiece for a 10 round magazine! Oh well.

      That's a fine rifle you got there. :) My dad has a civilian AK47 with a polymer foregrip and buttstock, and it's a great shooter.


      Cool. Does he have any optics on it?

      Yes he does, along with a special frame that he can put on that adds a rail mount. It's some kind of red dot sight, but I don't know where it was made or who made it.

      Ah, nice. I am just going to get a sidemount for it so I can still use the iron sights.
