i had nothing to do today so my gf and i took a ride in the car and scoped out some pawnshops in her area, in Orange City there seems to be no actual "gunshops" but rather pawnshops that cater mainly to guns but have other crap as well....so we go into one id never been in, and they have a nice selection and to my surprise their prices on stuff seemed to be spot on and nothing was horrificly jacked up on the tag....i was looking along the wall of rifles when something caught my eye....a Vepr K in 7.62x39! these things have been getting harder and harder to find lately and the last pawnshop i found one at wanted 900 and wouldnt budge on the price I had a feeling i wasnt gonna be in for any bargain but i asked to take a look at it....it had the skeletonized buttstock & vented handguard and the A2 flash-hider...the tag said 575! i was totally shocked because the additional options on it would be another 150 to an already 550 dollar gun....and heres the big factor...this gun is DEAD MINT....it was unfired in the box!! and the lady said if i took it today (typical sales talk) shed make it 550 even...i needed no more convincing....its home w/ me...and this thing is fucking awesome....ive wanted a vepr for over a year now and have been wondering if id ever find one anytime soon with the whole stoppage of shipments from russia....ill get pics up ASAP! russian AK's ftw!
