I was thinking about a Saiga .308 at a local gun store for $320, but bought a Remington 742 in 30-'06 instead. There may be a Saiga in my future yet. Anyone with a Saiga .308 want to chime in with a review on it? :?:THE SAIGA IS AN AUTOLOADING RIFLE with a sporting buttstock and fore end. The Saiga rifles are intended for hunting a wide range of wild game, as well as target practice. The rifles are developed on the base of the venerable Kalashnikov assault rifle (AK-47) and chambered for .223 Rem (5.56x45) cartridges.
