    I love the look of the Vepr gen2s, i think thats what they are called but the front sight moved closer to the handguards, but they are hard to find.

    How much did that set you back?

    I've always been a fan of that cartridge. Tell me, Sir; what does that rifle, in its final configuration, weigh?

    Some 74s I've seen are as accurate as a good AR15

    Here's my Waffen Werks, Classic Arms has them @ 600 + shipping+ dealer fee and sales tax. Definitely lighter than a '47, recoil is a lot less and ammo is now available as low as 17 cents a pop

    I've since added this and plan on an Eotech mini with tip off magnifier

    Funny, yours looks just like my Bulgarian 74, slidfire and all. I figured it was the cheapest round I had to blow through for fun. Its also accurate, at least it was when I bought it new. Its had a few thousand rounds of corrosive through it and ran really hot. Not sure how it would group now, but thats not its purpose I guess.

    OGRE- Ill get you a weight when I get the new mount and scope on. I also just ordered some Hornady steel cased VMAX for it. Ill update with accuracy as well.

    So how is the Slidefire working for you?

    I haven't taken it out yet due to straining my left arm a few weeks ago. Sucks... but a lot of people swear by them

    The Slidefire runs great on my 74. Its controllable and reliable. Ive let some younger kids shoot it and it runs good for them too.
