I am considering buying one of these, just not sure on guage yet.

It would be an 'all-rounder' (ie: slug-target, home defense, and yes... even clays)

If anyone out there owns or has owned one, or if your opinion of them is just so strong you can't hold back, I'd love to hear them all.

Thanks in advance.

Just like the AK they fire when you pull the trigger.

My mother always told me that if you don't have nothing nice to say do not say anything at all.

I shot the 12 gauge version of the Saiga on New Years Day.
It's a nice gun for the price, and you can even bump-fire it.
You can't shoot slugs due to the internal choke, the guy that owns it is going to have a couple inches cut off the front end to bring it to minimum length and to get rid of the choke so he can shoot slugs.

Well I seem to have misplaced my issue of Guns&Ammo in which they did an extensive review of the Saiga. And somehow I remember them firing slugs in the test gun(?). But anyways, they said its a great gun. Get one.

From the Izhmash website:

The shotgun comes with 12-ga. smooth bored barrel and the chamber which accepts the ammo equipped with shot or slugs including "Magnum" cartridges with 70 and 76 mm cartridge case.

Thanks for the links USNJoe_Retired
