Saiga 100

The Russian American Saiga 100 is a semi-automatic hunting rifle chambered in .308 Win. and .30-06 Springfield. 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 100 uses a very clean gas-piston operating system. It functions by capturing propellant gases into a tube near the muzzle and 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 100 different from other Saiga rifles is a black, reinforced plastic housing that encloses the receiver. Otherwise features include iron front and rear sights that are adjustable for windage and elevation.

The Saiga 100 is recommended for hunting large and medium-sized game.
