    My neighbor bought this Weatherby .300 mag form a guy he works with for $500. Guy won it in a raffle! Never been shot (except at factory) new in box! Right place at the right time! At $2.50 a shot I couldn't afford to own it at any price!

    One beautiful rifle!

    That's beautiful!

    I've got a "Vanguard" Weatherby, 7mm as I recall, never been fired. Gee, at $2.50 per shot..... wow!
    I see the kind of results that Chuck gets, and it's absolutely amazing (to me!).

    My brother wants to sell me a '22 target rifle. At least I can afford to shoot it.

    This is my next project! Saiga IZ-132, made by/at the famous Russian IZHMASH Arsenal. It can be converted into a Kalashnikov AK-47 for another $200. Centerfire Systems has them for $299.

    Excuse my ignorance, but I assume buying one of these is like buying an AR15, completely legal. If that extra $200 worth of goodies were capable of making the rifle fully automatic, is the simple act of owning them illegal, or is everything perfectly fine as long as you don't install the parts?

    That's an interesting weapon - it looks like a nasty killing machine to me! Maybe that's because it reminds me of war.

    When you say it's your next project, do you mean that as something to buy, or to get around to working on?

    Guess I may have left myself open to some criticism on my post! What I pictured above is the legally imported “sporter/hunting “ semi-auto version of the AK-47. While it has many of the same parts as the true AK-47 such as: barrel, receiver, gas system, etc., it’s configured a bit differently.

    The $200 conversion I mentioned converts it to a true AK-47 styled “semi-auto” rifle. Also the conversion will be 922R compliant, meaning it will have 6 US made parts.

    Of course illegal “full-auto” will get you jail time and/or big fine. Legal full auto will cost a small fortune!

    You can buy these Saiga rifles already converted for around $700 and up or do it yourself for a few hundred less. I have never attempted this conversion yet but I think it would be fun worthwhile project. There’s lots of info on the web for this.

    Here’s one: Saiga Conversion Instructions

    I guess any gun can be called a "nasty killing machine". It fun to shoot at a paper targets but bottom line a guns main purpose is to put food on the table and protect your life. When the SHTF (look it up) I'd rather be holding one of these than just my dik!

    Not sure if I'm being taken wrong - to me, for whatever reason, I really enjoy looking at and holding rifles with a beautiful wood stock, highly polished, and everything else just glistening metal. I think they're beautiful. On the other hand, modern day warfare weapons (what I called a "killing machine") is a weapon where form totally follows function, and everything has been done to make it efficient, not necessarily beautiful. I don't mean it in a 'negative way'. One I'd expect to see on an African Safari being used against game. The other I'd expect to see in battle with opposing armies that shoot back.

    In today's world, the African Safari thing is no longer relevant - but I think back to Teddy Roosevelt, or Jim Corbett. Corbett was trying to eliminate some man eating tigers that were making dinner of the villagers. I just don't picture him with something like an AR-15.


    I am curious about what makes a weapon illegal. I know fully-automatic is out, and I think that silencers, even by themselves, are out.



    Anyway, my personal definitions have no bearing on what anyone else ought to feel, and they certainly didn't stop me from buying an AR-15. I'd probably still have it, had a friend of mine not offered me a good price for it - and since I wasn't really using it, I sold it to him. This was many years ago. I sure did have fun with it for a while though, shooting "stuff" at the local outdoor range in Michigan, miles away from civilization. I even almost learned how to maintain it. I'd have flunked any Army course though, as I kept getting "lost" in what to do next for maintenance.


    A fun story. Back in Michigan, I believe guns were supposed to be in the trunk of one's car, locked up, unloaded. I had an old CJ-5 Jeep. I didn't want to be accused of having a concealed weapon, and I had no trunk, so I just put the AR-15 sideways across the back of the Jeep, in plain sight, with hearing protection and ammunition boxed up. Anyone who looked in (such as the attendants at the McDonalds I often stopped at on the way home from the range) could have easily seen it. In hindsight, I should have check how I was supposed to "carry" it. A cardboard box would have been more sensible, but back then I wasn't very sensible about a lot of things. Oh well. That, and my Marlin 30-30, were lots of fun (but truthfully, I preferred handguns).

    Are Saiga guns that much better that it's worth converting one vs. just buying an AK?
