    Hello again.
    So I decdied against getting a new AR. And have gone back to somthung that I want for some time, a Vepr. The prices have droped and Atlantic firearms has them in stock, I checked. I like ordered from there due to good coustomer service ecperance. Anyway, there are now so many models. I thought that I wanted the Drag style rifle in 7.62x54r. Due to the long range of that round. But now I see that there is a new Vepre model out in feburary that looks like a convention AK but has a crazy heavy barrel. Here is some pictures. Tell me what you think, and if you have a Vepr for the love of god post some pictures!:laugh:

    I seems you just took up a new project. You will have to buy one and post a range report within the next 1-2 months. Are you up to it? :p

    This rifle begs for decent optics. Ask them what scope rails the know will have perfect vertical alignment. I don't about the PSL but the Romak is off centered.

    Ooo! I really like that Ruski red wood furniture

    The VEPR is apparently built better and stouter than the Izhmash rifles. I haven't read any complaints from actual owners.

    Some of those Veprs are priced very reasonably too! I wonder how available the .308 mags are.
