I'm very fond of my .308 saiga however off the rack they don't have pistol grips. changing it back over to a standard config is not difficult but requires about $150 in extra parts to do. the another drawback is while there are aftermarket mags from 10-25round capacity they're made of plastic and not as durable and metal mags on other rifles and are also pretty spendy. I'm hoping someone will come up with a DIY conversion to use AR-10 mags similar to the m16 conversion I've seen for .223 ak's
I don't collect guns, I accumulate them.
