    That seems like a ridiculously good price, doesn't it?

    Flattop, gas block.. I like it.

    Olympic stuff has a pretty shitty reputation. Hit and miss.
    You can find a rifle kit for $450-500 and then just buy a stripped lower ($77-$125) and make a much better rifle for even less than that.

    I'm not looking for an AR, I just saw the price and thought it was rather low.

    I did see a thumbhole VEPR on consignment for 4XX, though. I need WAP on my phone so when I go to the gun store I can PM Squid about all the commie guns I see. :o

    I'm always thinking, damn, I wish Squid was here, is that a good deal?

    I saw some thumbhole WASR 22s that looked like fun for 240 ish...

    $4xx is good a pretty good price for thumbhole VEPR. Those .22 trainers do look fun I've thought about picking one up a few times but then I think well another $100 and I can get another real ak. 5.56 is next on my need to get AK calibers, then 308 or 12guage, then 22.

    btw if you want a 22 trainer I think AIM and Centerfire have them for $229 and there full stock no butthole crap.

    VEPRs are .308NATO right?

    So it would share from the same food supply as my Enfield... hmm.

    excellent. I think it may have a new home, if it's still there. I'm a lefty, so that butthole has to go, what are my options?

    Can you find a pic of what's on it? I think all the VEPR's already come with the FCG setup in the right spot to put regular ak style furniture on it. It doesnt look like this does it? http://www.impactguns.com/store/VEPR-VS308.html if your getting that for $4xx I fucking hate you :squint:

    About to head off to work so might be a couple hours before i can reply back.
