Fired about 1,500 rounds through my Saiga and not 1 FTF, FTE, etc. TULA, WOLF, BROWN BEAR, FMJ, SP, JHP; I've fired em all with not one hiccup. Performs flawlessly. Very accurate for an AK; was able to put rounds on a 3 inch steel target at 100 yds over and over again. If I had to say 1 bad thing about this rifle is that it is relatively heavy, especially the on the front end (due to the rail maybe) but very manageable.
