I don't know much about guns but seem to remember seeing a video of an automatic shotgun called a saiga. Is this a decent weapon and how much do they sell for?

You can buy a plain jane sporter version for around $500-600 most places. To convert it to an AK style with ak furniture is either gonna run you another 300-400 or take you some time.

http://www.tromix.com/Welcome.htm has the converted guns for sale.

My experience, they work quite well. AK reliability, low recoiling (adjustable gas tube lets you set it for your loads) and fast as hell. They actually got banned from IDPA competition as the pumps and tube fed semi-autos couldn't compete with them with the magazines.

I bought mine for $425 at a gunshow here in Texas.  Normal price is around $499 or less

And yes they are badass pieces of machinery.  They are a 12 gauge shotgun built on an AK platform. 
And as such they are the most reliable automatic shotgun on the planet.  I love mine.  Just bought a 20 round drum magazine for it.  Gonna test it out this weekend.

 Excellent weapon, it's an AK chambered for 12 Gauge; what more do you need to know?
