I am near completion on my Saiga 7.62x39 conversion, and I took it out to my wife's family's farm to function test it. Most of my wife's family was there for Easter dinner, and her brother and father are AR owners, but I wouldn't call them gun guys. They both looked at my Saiga earlier in the day. First AKs I think they've ever held. After I'd gone out to shoot, my wife overheard them talking and they said that my AK probably won't last past 1,000 rounds. So, how many rounds have you put through your AK?
