Why would anyone want one of those Saiga 12"s?
Because they CAN. That's why, and no other reason is necessary.
On one recent occasion, I went to the range with three long guns. Sitting next to each other on the bench were:
1. A 100% original Springfield Mark 1 1903. It cost me $600.
2. My 45-120 Sharps rifle, 100% custom, made by C. Sharps. That one set me back close to $4000. when everything was done on it.
3. My Hi-Point 9mm carbine. It cost my son $90.00 to buy it for me.
I have fun with all three. I shoot, therefore I am.
