Unless the Comunist factory worker had to make quota!!
Seriously, Im considering geting a Saiga or VEPR, with the POSP and soviet red dot. In the town Im moving to, everyone has a AK or SKS.

Here's what Kalinka Optics has to say about Russian quality...

My main hobby is amateur astronomy, and I have had opportunity to compare many Russian-made binoculars and telescopes. While the highest quality optics in the world are German, Japanese or USA made the Russian optics industry has improved a LOT in the past 5-6 years or so and the general quality is now almost even with USA quality. Their prices are indeed better. Interestingly, most of the problems I have seen are mechanical rather than optical (focus knob sticks or such). The great majority of the glass I have looked through is good quality and worth the money.
Chinese optics are improving rapidly. The Chinese problem is more of quality control. One set of binoculars is a real bargain for the money but the next pair are only good for peperweights.
I am making a guess that the same skills and quality control for making good binoculars and telescopes applies to rifle scopes.

Whatever you spend on a .308, you can count on spending more on ammo!
I picked up a PTR91 a few weeks ago, let me tell you... feeding this thing is going to be a real problem :)
Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

My Saiga is in 7.62 x 39, but it shoots rather well. Better than a lot of AK's I've fired. The trigger is kinda long and strange, but it can be replaced.
I'd like to get one in .308 at some point, but not very high on my list.
Great rifle for the money though, I'd buy another.
