Saiga .308: 16” or 20” ????

Recommended Posts

It’s been a while since I have posted. I am planning on thinning the herd so to speak with my Saiga collection. I have two converted .308’s a 16” and a 20”. I am leaning towards keeping the 20” and parting with the 16” just based on the cartridge and velocity consideration. Any reason I should keep the 16” over the 20”?

It all depends on what you're planning to do with the rifle. The 20" is optimal for the round itself, that's why I bought it years ago

Quite honestly, I do not shoot either very often, and when I do, it is Tula 150’s. I have several other .308’s that I shoot regularly for distance and hand load for. 
 

So these are really more for collection purposes. The 20” is more functional from a ballistics standpoint, but there is something about the 16” that is just sexier.  It seems like the .308 Saiga’s along with the .223’s are the least desirable calibers.

FWIW the 16” is an ‘08 imported by RAA and the 20” is a ‘10 imported by Legion.

I have not posted in awhile either.  Hi y'all.  I would keep the 20 inch, cut the barrel down to 18.5" and thread for an appropriate flash hider.
