Today I Stole a Saiga S-12

Recommended Posts

I'm too excited about the deal I got on a saiga that I just had to come on here and tell everyone. I was at the Sooner gun show in Tulsa today, and I noticed a guy walking around with an odd looking saiga. It's got the longer barrel, no choke and no threading, and a synthetic stock with a brown/tan camo job which looks to be from the factory. The gun had 15 rounds through it and included 3 5rd mags. I asked him if it was for sale, and he said only if I was a serious buyer. So I asked his price, and he tells me $325. I offer $300 cash, and he agrees. I also traded my CETME for a 16.3" Saiga 308 and $70 bucks. It was a good day.

Nice work, I went to the Indy 1500 gun show a couple weeks ago and there were people there wearing signs "WTB Saiga 12s" there were just none to be had. When the next shipment hits the market I am thinking of picking up a couple more. These things are just too much fun for words.

Wow - parting with a CETME must have been tough. I put those on a fair pedestal in 308 as I do a Saiga 12 for a shotgun. Please let us know if the Saiga 308 shoots as well as the CETME. I'd be interested. I'd also only trade either of those for a SOCOM. There is nothing quite as sensory inspiring as firing a high test 308 round out of a 16inch barrel. Sorta like shooting Lake City out of my PLR-16.

Sticking him with the CETME for a Saiga was a great deal. The ergonomics of HK/Cetme are crap compared to an AK.

You know the ergonomics are horrible when you say the AK does it better!

Did your CETME have refinished wood?

I think I looked at it! If it was you I didn't see you after I looked at the gun.

That was a real score on the Saiga 12.

My brother was the guy in Indy with the sign!!!

Small world.

Ha thats funny, it really is a small world. I am not sure what the CTMEs are running now but I saw a few Saiga 308s at a show today right in the $400-$450 range. One of them had all wood furniture on it which I have never seen and the dealer claimed they were new to the market. I am not sure if thats true as I am still pretty much a newbie to Saigas but it looked pretty nice.

 

Again, enjoy the new toys

Yep, I was one of them. Good looking gun, just couldn't swing it. I had to finish out my Christmas shopping for everyone else!

Good score on the Saiga.

Vit is right, its up for sale now, complete with pictures. I'm a business man, I buy and sell things, so I figured this could be a win-win for me and the buyer. Eventually its gonna go on gunbroker if I don't get any takers here.

I thought that the price was a little high when I saw the for sale post, but a gentleman wouldn't be critical of another's pricing. A SMART gentleman also wouldn't brag about stealing the gun (especially when it is such a "small world"). Thanks for looking out for your 'Brothers and Sisters" here first, by only trying to make 100% profit plus shipping! Good luck with your sale!

I hope no one is hatin' on me. I explained the sale fully, so if anyone decides to buy, they'll know what they're getting. Besides, honesty is a good thing, and I'll still make a buck regardless of what it sells for.

I wish someone in my area would be selling an S-12 for that price. I've been wanting to get one for about five years. I regret not buying an S-20s at Dunham's when they carried the Saigas from EAA.

 

I reserved an S-12 at the local gun shop that has them on order. They were supposed to come in about this time but probably won't arrive until February.
