Russian American Armory Saiga

Description

The Russian American Saiga is a semi-automatic hunting rifle chambered in 7.62X39, .223 Rem. and 5.45X39. 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 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 this model different from other Saiga rifles is an optional buttstock with an adjustable cheek piece and a  higher ammunition capacity than some of its cousins.

It’s also worth a mention that the rifle is available in 5.45X39mm is the caliber of currently-issued AK-47’s in Russia.

The Saiga is recommended for hunting large and medium-sized game.
