First off, congratulations on your new rifle.
I have a real weak spot for long barrelled, accurate AK variants, so this kind of thing interests me, especially when you describe it as "accurate". I have an SVD, 2 FPK/PSLs, and am currently having Krebs Custom Guns http://www.krebscustom.com/ build me a rifle based on a machined Bulgarian receiver and a long Romanian FPK/PSL barrel assembly in 7.62x39 that I got a from K-Var http://www.k-varcorp.com/index.html a while ago. Yet another project that has spun out of control.......oh well.

So, when you say the Saiga is "accurate", what are you seeing, and how seriously are you shooting it? By that, I mean- are you shooting Wolf or surplus ammo with iron sights, or better fodder with a scope?
Sorry to be so inquisitive, but it's my nature.

I'm just shooting with iron sights at the moment,but have a scope and mount soon to follow.
I bought 500 rounds of once fired brass from midway for $30
and some 150 grain hornady fmj boattails $100 per thousand.
and I ran across a deal at a local reloading shop,6 pounds of imr 3031 for $5 per pound(age unknown but they smell ok and shoot just fine)
my indoor range doesnt allow fmj in high powered rifles so I also bought some sierra match point boat tails in 190 grain flavor. I'm still aquiring my rifle skills,and cant wait to get outside to shoot some longer range targetts.
the rifle feeds and ejects consistantly,doesnt recoil too badly,and at 25 yds is deadly accurate standing with just the iron sights.
