Saiga 223 Prices

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Last time (pre-kids) I was thinking about picking up a semiautomatic rifle I was looking at the Saiga 223 and they were going for under $300. I understand they are a lot more expensive now. How much of that is because of the current hoarding craze and how much is because more people are waking up to how good they are? Are they expected to come down in the next year or so? I'm thinking about getting either a Saiga 223 or an M&P 15. I'd probably go with the cheapest but if the prices were close I'd go with the Saiga.

A deal was announced at shot show this year and Kalashnakov will be importing 80,00 - 200,000 rifles per year to North America.  Nobody really knows what prices will do or when the next scare could happen, but I anticipate prices falling as soon as the next big shipment arrives.  Even if you buy one now and prices drop, it just means buy another one.  A bird in the hand....

We might see prices get under $400 if/when the big shipment arrives, but price won't be there to start.. Likely the initial offer will be $450-$500 until initial sales stall and then price will come down a bit when dealers get tired of sitting on inventory.

I think the converted .223's at J&G for 549 are a great deal right now, especially compared to Legion's "collectors edition" with the detachable butstock. There arent many easy stock replacments for those. I would like to see some unconverted ones come in around $400, I would pick up a few.
