Gen 4 Glock 31,opinions?

Been offered one in trade for an unconverted Saiga sporter in 5.45.
Glock comes with three 15 round mags,150 or so rounds of ammo,four holsters.

I don't know anything about .357 SIG apart from it is more expensive than the more common calibers.

I have been offered $475 for the rifle.

Everybody wants to eat at the government's table, but nobody wants to do the dishes.

.357SIG has superior penetration capability (with good ammo) compared to the other major calibers. That's about all it has going for it.

A lighter bullet going faster means snappy recoil. As you noticed, ammo isn't as widely available or as cheap.

Paul Howe prefers the ballistics over others--it's what he actually carries. Tho I think he's been using some 9mm as well (economy).

What do you have tied up in the Saiga?

I'd only trade the Saiga if I could flip the Glock for more $$$. No reason to spend more $$$ on an additional caliber, conversion kit, etc.
