This is my Ruger 10/22, highly modified. Took it to the range last weekend and was driving tacks at 75 yards. Wheee!


This is my new Saiga Sportsterized AK. Haven't shot it yet, hope it's not garbage. It was only $250, so it may well be junk.

Nice ones!

Is there any recoil at all from that Ruger thing?

Nice guns.
Ive heard that you can modify Saiga to fire automated and to use AK cartridges. Is it true?

Topic: yes


Well, any semi-auto can be converted to auto, and if the Seiga is based greatly on the AK74(I dont know much about the Seiga) then it should be easy to use AK74 magazines with it...

The stock on the Ruger is solid walnut, and it's as heavy as it looks. With the compensated barrel, and with it being semi-auto, there's almost no felt recoil, and damn near no muzzle jump at all. As fast as you can pull the trigger, you can hit the bullseye. The butt and comb are both fully adjustable, so it fits me like a glove. I would recommend a 10-22 to anybody who wants a fun plinker. There's a ton of aftermarket acessories and parts, so it's fun to tinker with.
The Saiga is okay, and for the price I can't complain. Functions flawlessly, and reasonably accurate. Mine is chambered for 7.62 Russian. They are available in several other calibers. Only put 40 rds through it so far, I'm going to put it through it's paces on Saturday. It would be illegal as hell to modify the Saiga to acept AK mags, or to fire Full auto. I have no interest in that.
Next mods for both guns will be Picatinny rails on the forearms. And next month I'm gonna get a Saiga-20. It's the same action as the Saiga, but chambered for 20 guage shotshells! WHEE!
