As I posted earlier this week, I traded into a converted Saiga .223 AK Wednesday. I was able to take it out this afternoon for function testing. I put 60 rounds of American Eagle Tactical and 20 rounds of TulAmmo .223 through it without a hiccup. The gun shot smoothly, and felt solid and tight. It also appears to be nicely accurate, but I didn't have an area where I could shoot at enough distance to really tell. My impressions are that this is a nice, good-quality rifle that feels, looks and shoots good. I now need to order some Surefire mags and start thinking about a flash hider. I got a very bright, 18 to 20 inch muzzle flash that I'll need to address. Any suggestions re: getting my barrel threaded and a US made flash hider?
