I'm new to AK, and was thinking of getting a Saiga. Do saiga 7.62x39's take AK mags.? If not, how hard are mags to get? Are there hi cap. mags. for the .308 version? Thanks in advance

I looked into this too not long ago. AK mags won't work without a relatively easy modification:

There is a lot of Saiga info contained in that link. Click on "up" on the left side.

There are Saiga hi-cap mags around, but they're expensive. I saw one at a recent gun show for $59.

Saiga 7.62x39 have factory Izhmash saiga mags in 5rd, 10rd, and 30rd.

Tantal/Doug Ford has packs of 5rd mags for sale.

10rds are everywhere on forums.

As for Izhmash Saiga 30rd mags.

If you dare~Ruseller/Andrei( i got stiffed by him before though).

trapperindustries is offering them at roughly 30.00US after conversion from euro.

Oleg@Rusmilitary gets em off and on. I bought his last in OCT, 2005. He hasn't had em since, and told me straight up...not likely.

A member here.... mastery had one for sale in the EE. IM him for availability.

I have 20 myself of the rare 30's. I may ditch 2 of em if money keeps tight.
