I'm finding a lot of conflicting information on this subject. I have a Saiga .223 and I was wondering if it was also chambered for 5.56. Does anyone here know for sure? Thanks!
Same here. I haven't stumbled onto anything definitive either. All the threads I find where people are discussing it there isn't any consensus opinion either.Yea I've searched all over and can't find a manual for it. I did find a link for a saiga manual but it had every caliber and ga. except the .223.

I mean it's an AK for Pete's sake!
If they are still in business might want to call The Firing Line in Wyandotte Oklahoma. They do enough AK work they ought to know.
What does a POS Century Arms junker have to do with a rifle made in a factory that makes real AK's ?
Yes he was simply asking will his Saiga shoot the military 5.56 nato round in 223 chambered. He was not asking the difference in the two. That discussion has been on this site enough before.Come on peeps, what the OP is wanting to know is whether his Saiga 223 actually has a 223 Remington chamber or whether Saiga chambers them in 5.56x45 NATO . . .
