Gun Porn: Suddenly More Valuable Edition

The prices for the Saiga 12 went up over $800 during the 2013 panic. I believe they were around $600 before that for the unconverted* ones. When ARs and AKs fell back down, Saiga 12s didn’t because there was a rumor that they were going to be classified as destructive devices. That didn’t pan out either, but a couple of weeks ago President Obama made it illegal for an American company to do business with the company that produces Saigas.

Prices have increased somewhat. It’s telling that Pro Mag 20 round drums cost less from Brownell’s than they’re selling for used on Gunbroker.

I’m told the LimbSaver is helpful if you’ve also got the drum mags 🙂

*Unconverted meaning not converted back to their original factory condition. So maybe unconverted is the wrong word. GCA68 required them to be converted to a “sporting purposes” condition, meaning without the scary pistol grip.
