What is a Real Saiga-12C going for these days?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just curious if anyone knows what a real Saiga-12C goes for these days. I see converted 12's going from 1200 to 2400 but never see any 12C's. Does anyone ever see them for sale?????

I've seen anywhere from $1,200 (wish I had bought it) to $2,500, so I would expect to pay at least $1,600 considering the current market prices.

Is the 12C more collectable or valuable than the regular 12 converted? Seems like the prices of the converted ones are nearing or exceeding the prices of the 12C's......

Shooting mine, and then selling it for much less than 2500 a year or so back is making me sick :) who knew?

 

They are/used to be considered highly collectable. They were brought in during the first AW ban, intended for police only. After the ban, they were no longer imported, or I think they might have been imported with the agreement that they weren't to be sold/transfered to us non LEO citizens.

 

Bottom line: there were only so many (I often heard 100 ish) brought into the states, with no real chance that there will be anymore.

 

Look closely at the shotgun in that other 10 round drum thread and I believe that is a factory original ... which makes sense as the owner is in Russia.

I have an opportunity to buy one for $2000 and I'm not sure if it is something that will continue to go up in value and I should buy it or if I should just get a regular converted 12. I'm thinking I should just get it and later pick up a regular converted. Any opinions?

Sorry all... I thought that asking the value of a 12C by a non contributor was Fishing.....Rule 1B...

apparently... I was wrong....
