For me I think it would beat the cost of converting the .308 to accept G3 mags. Then again maybe not . If I got the .308 Saiga I think 2 or 3 20 rounders would do me.

I agree. I think I'm willing to plunk down $70 for a couple of reliable .308 mags now. So far, I haven't seen anyone produce a reliable conversion.

These mags are pretty expensive everywhere, even in Russia.

They are factory new, not surplus mags. There is going to be a big price difference.

I am sure they had them shipped air frieght, and payed some bribes to the Russians to have them here that fast. Normally the Russians take forever on that kind of stuff.

I assume that I still have to put in the required US parts to use these?

Now they just got to do something about the shotgun mags...

Ditto on the Saiga 12 8 rounders!!!

dont you have to add the us parts to use a high cap in the Saiga's?
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 12:45:54 PM EDT
From what I understand, you dont have to use US parts with the Saiga mags. The Saiga mags are not considered High cap military magazines, and are not considered an evil feature.

The shotgun mags, there is the rumor that EAA was told by the ATF that if the high cap Shotgun mags were imported, the ATF would declare it a destuctive device.

its still a high cap mag, I dont think it matters if its a "military" mag

Has anyone found out for certain if it's ok to use these without doing a US parts conversion?

Mags for 308 are on backorder. They expect them within the next thirty days per EAA. Im letting my order stand, I doubt they will get any cheaper for a really long time.

When the 1997 Klinton edict was issued , banning importation of high capacity assault weapons (aka-butthole stocked guns) part of the verbage was "capable of accepting a MILITARY high capacity magazine" , the Saigas weren't designed to , and can't accept a military magazine (as imported) and are therefore are perfectly legal to use with a high capacity magazine that is original or a military magazine that was altered to fit.

If the Saiga will accept a unaltered military magazine , then is must have the correct amount of US made parts.

So high capacity magazines don't neccessitate US parts.

I ordered 2 .308 mags, If they are built like the 8rd (10rd when modified) they should be indestructible!
