    Not good.

    I'm sure the accessories biz will do fine as there are still alot in country.

    That sucks. Should have bought one.....

    IMO the shotgun has limited use other then sporting. :)

    USPSA 3-Gun is a sport.

    You can't import AK rifles either. I'm sure some company (CAI probably) will put the requisite us made parts in it and charge more $ for it. It is funny that it currently illegal to use a large capacity mag in them without changing out the right amount of parts.

    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.

    Check that off as another infringement on my right to bear arms. Soon we'll only be able to buy and own single shot black powder muskets. ****ing bull****...

    That sucks. I was hoping to replace the ones I lost just yesterday in a boating accident.

    Instead of everyone panicing don't you think they should wait and see if this is actually true? Every gun forum is posting the same source for this info.

    Where? Looking at all of the usual suppliers, new Saigas are still $500-550.

    Yeah. I took mine duck hunting. It's not a sporting gun, so when I couldn't hit ducks with it, I got frustrated and threw it out of the canoe......:wow:

    Local Pawn shop has one with 3 mags and a drum for $800. I would be willing to part with the drum IF I go buy it.

    Well, new 5 round Saiga mags are about $15. 10 round mags are $33.95 ea and the MD20, 20 round mags, which are the good ones, are $80 ea. plus shipping. The Promag 10 & 12 round drums are also around $80 new.

    The value of the mags vary depending on who makes them and when. Early drums and 10 round mags had function problems that the latter ones don't. The point being they are not worth the same as new mags.

    IMO, $800 for a Saiga and mags is too much unless it has already been converted to a pistol grip type. Otherwise, I would offer half that to start.

    The good news is if the worst case scenario happens and the become destructive devices, we can chop the barrels to whatever length we want.:supergrin:

    I would have to move to a different state and/or sue the Obama Admin or sell mine to a dealer who would undoubtedly only be offering pennies on the dollar for the glut of S-12s that would be on the market, assuming they even gave us time to sell them off.

    My guess would be they ban import, if you look at other long arms which aren't allowed to be imported a lot are less "scary looking" than the Saiga 12.

    I've been wanting a Saiga for a while, but I just never got around to buying one. I just heard this news yesterday, and it certainly motivated me. I ordered one last night.

    Hopefully the vendor hasn't been overrun with orders this weekend, and my order actually goes through and is processed.

    "No sporting purpose."....

    The second amendment never mentions a **** thing about "sporting purpose".
