In a previous thread I posted that I had read that Arsenal was hinting at doing something with the Vepr. Well, a little more digging turned up some interesting info.
(As before, pardon the link to the fake SEAL home page.)
"Ivan tells me that a good military RPK should shoot in the 1moa range.
..all of our new Arsenal receivers will be 1.6mm, and should be at least as strong as a milled receiver. This will allow us to go up to new, more powerful cartridges as we develop the Kalashnikov for the future. 1 moa is not the best that an AK can do with enough development. Stay tuned to this channel for further developments."
Jimmy @ Arsenal USA
Perhaps a AK-74 with a FEG receiver is more to your liking.
But it seems like Arsenal may be gearing up to build American made PRK receivers in 7.62x39, 308, 5.56 and 5.45. Hmmm, think of an American AK with AR 1moa range accuracy and using AR ammo. Hmmmm.
"as we develop the Kalashnikov for the future"
Perhaps I should consider selling my ARs now while they are still worth something
damn@!! i really need a job now! when summer comes im working 40 hours a week nonstop. weeeeeeee!
Free float huh? Hmmm, most interesting.
Here is something I am wondering, since it will be an American made rifle, when the 94 ban sunsets (and if no new one is legislated) does that mean that these rifles will be able to have folding stocks, treaded barrels, flash hiders and such?!
