My understanding is that it is pronounced 'See-yah-guh', with a long E, from a native-speaking Russian.

just listen to the Saiga promotion movies from Izhmash? the narator says it a couple of times.

"Reason is always a kind of brute force; those who appeal to the head rather than the heart, however pallid and polite, are necessarily men of violence. We speak of touching a man's heart, but we can do nothing to his head but hit it."

To put a little clarification into the matter let me say first I am russian, born and raised in Russia. The word that you see on the rifle is the russian spelling for the word. As far as the pronunciation it's almost correct in the file that Dinzag submitted with the biggest difference being the stress is on the second syllable of the word, not the first. As for the way the narrator is pronouncing that word in the you tube izhmash video, it's not the way you would say that word in russian, don't forget, he's trying to speak english after all. Hope this will clear up some confusion.

Oh my god that is the perfect critter for the S12 :osama: When I first found out saiga was a kind of antelope I was thinking ibix, gazelle, prong horns. Fast delicate graceful animals. Looked at this gun and said to my self 'That just aint right'. That creature is the toughest most but ugly deer I have ever seen! IT FITS!

They guy says it a couple dozen times and it's clearly "Sie-ga". Guess I'll have to stop saying Say-ga.

I think my Sie-ga is beautiful, but it's namesake is hideous!

Benjamin Franklin thought our national bird should be the turkey not the bald eagle using that sort of reasoning and the guy was a friggin genius. :super:

hmm... Roast Eagle for thanksgiving... Cause the Turkey is protected as the national bird...

Eagle, I bet, would taste just as YUMMY as Hooded Merganser SMELLS roasting in the oven... :unsure: :unsure:











(For those of you who DONT KNOW... Hooded Merganser is a fish eating waterfowl. My buddy roasted one ONCE... never made it to cooked... it got thrown OUTSIDE after about half an hour, cause it stunk the house up SO BAD you couldn't take the nasty fish smell!!! )
