The ATF is considering banning the importation of non-sporting shotguns. While this is not a done deal, yesterday’s study has already triggered a run on “non-sporting” semi-automatic Saiga shotguns. Russia’s Izhmash manufactures the AK-based weapon. Izhmash exports the Saiga-12 through the Russian-American Armory Company. The company imports three models: the Saiga 12, Saiga 20 and Saiga 410 (the model designation refers to the gun’s gauge, obviously). The 12’s magazines are already harder to get than a date with Adriana Lima; the shotguns are flying off the shelves. Seems like TTAG’s Obscure Object of Desire, RandR Targets’ $3200 heavily modified version, could soon be even more obscure.
