I have been talking to Concern Kalashnikov’s people about the Saiga MK-107 (semi-automatic AK-107) which features the famous balanced recoil system which is said to significantly cut down on recoil (at the expense of making the rifle’s operation more complex). I have been told that they are looking to export it to the USA and might have one at SHOT Show 2015 in January. They can’t make any promises, but I am already getting excited at the prospect of shooting this much-talked-about-but-rarely-seen firearm.
The MK-107 incorporates a number of ergonomic improves over the original AK-107 and your average Saiga. It features an adjustable M4-style stock, ergonomic grip, a full length picatinny rail and best of all, in my opinion, a button safety within reach of the trigger finger.
