Someone is advertising a "canta 12" from the izhmash factory. It looks like a saiga in the pictures. Does anyone know anything more?
I'd much rather have a gun and not need it than need it and not have it.

I think its how they spell saiga in russian. :rolleyes:
.308 = 7.62x51mm
.223 = 5.56x45mm
30-06 = 7.62x63mm
50bmg = 12.7x99mm


I say we nuke them from orbit. Its the only way to be sure.

"canta" is the russian spelling of saiga. Canta is pronounced "si' ga" in russian.

Sort of. The one-legged "T" is is pronounced like "G". The "AN" is pronounced like "AI"

Many Saigas have the Russian (cyrillic alphabet) spelling stamped on them. My Saiga-12 has the English spelling on the right side of the receiver directly beneath the charging handle, and the Russian spelling on the left side of the receiver just above and forward of the magazine well.

The symbols can be described (using upper-case Latin characters as the basis) as follows: The letter C; the letter A; a horizontally mirrored N with a horizontal line above it; a vertically mirrored L, the letter A.

Wow, nice job on the audio pronunciation guide!
This would be my signature if I had anything important to say.
