USA –-(Ammoland.com)- The Izhmash Saiga autoloading shotgun incorporates the Kalashnikov design, providing reliability and simplicity of operation.
Outstanding accuracy is achieved by the smooth bore, Lancaster style elliptical barrel, which imparts a spin on projectiles, increasing accuracy and exterior threading to accept chokes.
The chrome lined barrel, chamber and gas system resist corrosion, making cleaning easier and extending the life of the shotgun.
