I may have to put off getting that XD. Have you guys seen this?
A VEPR K in 7.62x39 for $460?
I've been jonesin' for a quality AK type rifle for a year now, and the best I've found is either getting a SAR-1 for $350 and then having to untwist the sights :tongue: or paying $600+ for a VEPR or some custom job.
I have heard about the VEPRs developing trigger slap sometimes, but there's not a rifle on the market without a problem of some kind.
Ah decisions decisions. It seems like every time you have your mind made up on something, you stumble across a deal you'd be crazy to pass up.
Euc - I think that group buy of Correia's on THR is pretty good - would love one myself and - would doubt trigger slap gonna be a major prob on that gun. BTW - you a member over there? If so - handle?
We also over there have a thread on the AK-47 pistol!!!! I want one!
Same handle P95. Think I have like 6 posts lol.
I forget where I heard about the trigger slap thing but the person complaining about it remarked he owned 2 of the rifles and that it was easily fixed. I think it was one of those 1 in 1000 things.
I'll have to think about it of course but a deal like that doesn't come along too often.
Then again there's always a deal to be had if one just looks around.
With regards to an AK 47 pistol... that's different.
For someone else this would be a gimmick gun but for me, this is strongly to my tastes. I'm sorely tempted. The XD is still gonna be there in a few months and this won't be, not at this price!
I gues if ya want a semi accurate .30 cal. For my money I'm glad I have a AR. I have yet to see an accurate AK clone.
I've been thinking hard about the VEPR group buy at THR also, but I just purchased a Rock River AR carbine last week, and haven't even had a chance to shoot it yet :mad:
I also have an Armalite A2 rifle and a Romanian WASR AK....as far as accuracy goes, the AR wins hands down. But the AK is probably the one I will grab when the mutant-zombie-kill off the old geezers so we don't have to pay Social Security anymore :eek: -riots begin because of the drop-dead dependability factor. A quality AK-47 (I don't think that is an oxymoron) definitely has a place in my gunsafe :wink:
