Whilst very similar in appearance to the Soviet made but the Saiga shoots the smaller 5.56 NATO bullets rather than the heavier 7.62 X 39mm bullets of the AK47. This rifle has some extra safety features compared with the AK47 but is designed as a civilian firearms so does not have a fully automatic mode (i.e. a machine gun mode).
- Weight: 3.9 kg (empty)
