The guys from Bulgaria have been busy. With Saiga’s shotguns nearly sold out and importation down to a trickle, they’ve decided to bring their own 12-gauge AK pattern shotgun to market. The shotgun is available in both a fixed AND collapsible stock version, with the collapsible stock disabling the gun from firing (a safety measure, according to the reps).

The handguards are off of an RPK, allowing for better and faster heat dispersion than its Russian made associate. Also different is a proprietary quad rail system that lets you mount lights, lasers and other gubbins directly on the gun from day one.

They’re also showing off a 410 gauge version, with both fixed and folding stocks. Thanks to the size of the 410 shell they can use standard AK furniture on the gun, which means the customization options are nearly endless.

  1. .410 bunny popping how fun, then when you get home have some pdx1’s and you have a pretty multipurpose firearm, wonder if this would make it through a possible ban????

  2. I think I saw one of these in a local gun store… looks nice, but unless you must have a folding stock, I think I’d rather have a VEPR12.

    It’s weird that they kept the Russian-style “no shooting while folded” safety. I was under the impression that there was no technical reason for it, just Russian law.

    Yeah, but you’re still shooting a 410. If I want a tacticool AK-pattern long gun for my 9-year-old, now I know where to look.

  4. Izhmash did not stop sending firearms, the white house placed an importation ban on Russian goods (with emphasis on firearms and ammo) that’s why Sagia’s have at least doubled in price.
