I've had one of my 16" 308 saigas for quite a while now I just bought another one off gun broker for a really good deal. When I started to compare the two the newest one felt a bit heavier, after a few I measured the Barrel diameter and sure enough it's a bit thicker than my old Saiga 308. As it wasn't hard enough to get some hand guards to fit my old one with out a lot of custom work now I've got an even thicker one to deal with..what is the deal with this any info would be much appreciated

Ivan has never really been known for consistency of manufacture.
