Before anyone post quick back and says no. Please read the link below the talks about the legality of the Saiga rifle.

Well according to them only the ones stamped Izhmash Saiga imported by E.A.A. are legal.

Yeah and those are the ones the EAA sales. Now if they are legal and I'm sure it would be hard to find a transfer dealer with enough balls to do it.

its still illegal, the importer and manufacturer isnt going to make that big of difference. the model "Saiga rifle" is illegal no matter who imports it or makes it.

we would have better luck getting it legal here by changing the name.

All the FN FAL rifles are illegal by name but the Imbel FAL rifles are legal. Even though they both have the same name.

I hope that you are right and that you can find an FFL who will do it. Let me know if you do!

The link that you posted is a little confusing. I have only seen a few Saiga rifles in CA. They were all marked as follows:

Left forward side of the receiver in large bold letters "SAIGA 7.62" with smaller print "7.62x39" directly underneath. Further back on the left side is "MADE IN RUSSIA BY IZHMASH".

Right forward side of the receiver "KALASHNIKOV - USA" with "Pt St Lucie, Fl. USA" directly underneath.

Nowhere is mentioned EAA.

Does it have to say EAA somewhere? It is clearly marked made by Izhmash. And imported by Kalashnikov USA.

The Firearm:

The original AK plant and the office of Kalashnikov is in the Izhmash factory in Izhevsk Russia. The Izhmash factory manufactures a sporting version of the world famous AK and they call it "SAIGA". There are some changes such as:

Hunting stock / forend

Standard capacity magazines

Wide range of calibers or gauges

Sporting sighting system

No. California "assault weapon" law is divided into three separate categories. Category 1 and 2 assault weapons must be explicitly listed in order for them to be prohibited under California law as an "assault weapon." Category 3 "assault weapons" are defined by possessing combination of features. The E.E.A. Saiga 7.62x39 is neither identified on the list, nor does it possess the features required to be a Category 3 "assault weapon."
