The Russian American Saiga 410 is an semi-automatic hunting shotgun chambered in .410. The Saiga family of shotguns 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 410 uses a very clean gas-piston operating system where propellant gases are captured into a tube near the muzzle, the gas is directed onto a piston, the gas pushes the piston back so it can drive the bolt to the rear, and the bolt ejects an empty shell and loads a fresh one. The versatile design of the 410 allows it to shoot shotshells, slugs and magnum shells. Two sighting options are available, either fixed or adjustable sight leaf. Russian American recommends the Saiga 410 for hunting small and medium-sized game in a variety of climates.
