  1. VEPR: What do I need to convert?

    New Member Introduction
    Hello all, This is my first post. I am currently looking into a VEPR in 223 or in 308. I have never had a rifle before. I understand I need something called a bullet guide to take real AK mags. I also understand many people change out the stock for either side folding or fixed stocks. I want...

  6. Catamount Fury: the Resurrection

    Go easy on me; my post count is low according to Leviathan. Saw a total of 12 threads on Catamount, and most a bit moldy according to him. So I'll wade into the Sino-aficionado Forum to see if it picks up. Got a Catamount Fury 1 (that bastard) a few months ago. After some world travel, I got...

  12. 9mm AK build videos

    Build It Yourself

Anyhow, other people can see what I did and improve on the work, thats...
