The Russian American Saiga 308 VER.21 is a semi-automatic hunting rifle chambered in .308 Win. The Saiga family of rifles are based on the ubiquitous Kalashnikov assault rifles, of which the AK-47 is the most widespread exponent. The AK design is very rugged because it can still function after being exposed and submerged in water, sand, dirt, and mud. Just like the AK, the Saiga VER.21 uses a very clean gas-piston operating system. It functions by capturing propellant gases into a tube near the muzzle, directing gas onto a piston, the piston then drives the bolt to the rear and the bolt ejects an empty casing and loads a fresh round.
What makes the VER.21 different from the Saiga 308 is a wood thumb hole stock.Otherwise featues include iron front and rear sights that are adjustable for windage and elevation. A Picatinny rail is mounted on the left side of the receiver for adding an optical sighting device.
The Saiga 308 VER.21 is recommended for hunting large and medium-sized game.
