      1 magazine
      1 cleaning "kit" in metal tube
      1 small oil bottle sans oil
      1 small pamphlet
      At least that's what came with my 7.62 Carbine Saiga. I'm really bored with it though, even after conversion...probably sell it within the next month or so.

      Canted front sight. Slight cant is no big deal, if it's too much, send it back.

      Yep, that sounds about right...good luck - http://www.warriortalk.com <--- its a bit political, but they just announced some metal US-made Saiga .308 magazines - you'd probably want to check em out.

      PSL > Saiga .308.

      Any feedback on Pat Sweeney's book on the SKS and AK-47? I don't have either now, but would like to in the future, and I'm wondering if this book would be a good primer or overview on the two.

      If you want a good book on just the AK and its many variants (not so much the SKS) - try "AK-47 The Grim Reaper" - 900 pages of ridiculously good info, photos, and details on magazines, cartridges etc.

      this probably depends on the importer right? but are there any warranties available with saigas these days? i'm buying it from a local gunstore, what does a "slightly" canted front sight look like?
      coming from shooting .223 and .22 all my life, buying boxes of .308 looks like spending a fortune

      Yes, a brand new, sporterized configuration Saiga has a warranty. I forget the name offhand, but the 3rd party gunsmith that gets all the Saiga warranty work is a regular on Saiga-12.com forums.
      BUT! Once you start de-banning the gun with 922R parts, your warranty is void.
      You can google canted AK and maybe find some pictures, but the best description I can give you is that the front sight, gasblock, and rear sight block are not all on the same vertical plane.
      In my experience (5 Saigas), Saigas are pretty good about NOT having canted sights. It's the Century Arms/Romanian stuff that can be bad. And some Bulgarian Arsenals.

      the conversion probably won't come until next year, i'll be gone all summer, shame to spend money on parts that i won't even use until this fall.
      thanks for the quick reply

      Bringing this back up for the faithful.
      Natchez has Tula 7.62x39 122g FMJ running at $4.99/box (20). Don't know how that compares to other prices out there for the Wolf/*Bear stuff, but it seemed pertty comparable to me.

      Tula = wolf. Decent enough stuff but * bear is better.

      If you paid $11.99 for 20 rounds of Wolf 7.62x39, then you got f***ed.

      Wow. I did some checking around locally and some places are getting $8-9 for Wolf in B&M shops.

      Buy in bulk online. I get my 5.45 for $150 per 750, or $0.20 a round - not great, but a far cry better than most of the 5.56 (a reason I sold my 5.56 AR upper to replaced with a curious other upper)

      If it's American-made you're good to go.
