    I posted this elsewhere but didn't get much info, so I"m asking here. We have one we bought a few years ago, pre Obama, and want to now sell but don't know what a fair price is. WE live in the south. We haven't done anything to improve it, it will come with 2 extra 10 round magazines. Please I'd appreciate opinions.

    Yeah, I remember them at $399. I didn't buy one, but I've been buying plenty of other things I could get 2x or 3x the money for, but I'm not selling. Good luck with your sale! You'll have no problems.

    I wish I would have bought one when they were cheap. I wanted one bad but didnt even want to pay 6 for one like it was pre panic. Now the prices are just crazy

    Non-converted, they were about $600-ish, last time I checked (pre-panic). Converted, it can be between $900-1500 or so, depending if you convert yourself or get a pro to do it.

    I had mine done by a pro.

    I have twice what I paid for the gun + conversion invested in magazines alone.

    I have approximately $1960 invested in mine and could EASILY sell it all to the right buyer for $5000 or more.

    I NEVER would.....but I could.

    OP....$1500 would be a STARTING price for you. It will probably fetch more than that though. Good luck and don't forget.....

    I paid $325, used, in 2006. Realistically, that's about what they're worth in stock form. Realistic went out the window several years ago though, and in the last month left the universe.

    I might be wrong, if I am, someone please point it out. But from my understanding, putting a 10 round mag or twenty round drum on an unconverted Saiga 12 is not 922r compliant and a violation of Federal law.

    I think I paid around $800 for mine about a year and a half ago. Here it is with a few modifications.[​IMG]

    Someone can correct me if i'm wrong, but as long as the magazine is made in the US (12 round surefire/md drum) it would be in compliance.
