The Vepr Hunter is on it's way, to my FFL, as we speak.
I'm in sales (dont play golf) and enjoy taking my clients out to the range to shoot. I own LOTS of different firearms and i enjoy shooting combloc calibers, because of MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK!
I bought this as a range gun, knowing that i could "shoot for cheap" and knowing, that for the same $$$$, there are much more accurate, and better semi automatic rifles out there.....But not in 7.62X54R!
I scoured the internet. I could not find any other Vepr's in 7.62X54R ......NONE, NADA, ZILCH, ZIP! (didnt want an SVT, PSL or Drag). I checked with all of the "out of stock" distributors. I was told that there are NONE in the pipeline! Yep, None! (i wonder if this is by executive order of our Commander in Chief?)
I'm in a little state of panic...........ON NO! I WON THE BID! I shot from the hip and purchased this rifle on GunBroker. My intention was to customize it and make it a black rifle, instead of a hunting rifle. Duh.....but it has the cross bolt safety. I'm sure that i can find a tac forearm to fit, but does anyone know if i can fit a pistol grip and tactical stock on this thing? Yes i know its gorgeous "as is", but my clients, want to shoot black guns.
