Got a chance to finally pick up a VeprII in 7.62X39. I was wondering about the barrel rifling in the longer barrels because the rifling looks faint. I also checked out a couple of older NHM-91 rifles and their barrels looked the same.
Is it normal for the longer barrel AK's to have barrels that look so smooth?
Yes Mr. Bob, I find that to be the case.
I have a spare FAL barrel laying around and it looks the same only a lot shinier. I guess that brand new shiny barrel is a little deceiving.
Once again, you prove that you are indeed an AK
Now, if he still has it in the morning it will be in my safe or shooting off a few rounds at my mom's place in the country in the afternoon.
Does anybody really reload AK ammo anyway?
Anyway, I understand what you are thinking/saying.
Oh and btw, that new VeprII is resting in my safe at the moment. Gonna go try it out today provided the weather co-operates. I don't do cold weather like I used to.
