The Izhmash Saiga Sport model has the trigger moved backward toward the rifle stock. Also, the pistol grip as found on the Archer is missing. This makes the Sport look less like a traditional AK.
The rear and front sights on the Saiga are what the AK user would expect — typical ladder design rear and drift-adjustable front.
We prefer to add an optic, which requires the placement of a mount, purchased separately.
