Just received my Centerfire Systems Catalog. I have been considering a Saiga in 7.62x39 for some time. The catalog also has a Bulgarian AK 74 in 5.45x39. The Saiga is new for $350, which I would eventually like to convert, and the AK-74 is $370.
Value - in your opinion which is better? Cost/quality
7.62 vs 5.45?
I am looking for a reasonably priced shtf rifle. Can't afford an AR...
