I was watching something about the troops and the situation in Iraq on FOX tonite and during one of the parts where they were talking about terrorists they showed two guys in what looked like ski masks, bending down trying to be unseen. One of the guys had a VEPR.

Who knows if it was a terrorist or not, but the dude definetly had a VEPR. Stock and elongated handguard and all.

No props to the guy... but man do i want a VEPR.

I have a VEPR-K in new condition. I/M if interested. Very heavy gun.
Link Posted: 1/29/2006 11:06:42 PM EDT
I saw it but i don't think i would want to strip and refinish it.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Anyway, i got to move and get all that taken care of ($) first.

But the first thing once the moving is out of the way is gonna be to get a VEPR, or an Arsenal.

My only concern about the VEPR is the length of the stock... i don't have long arms....i use the second setting on the collapsable stock on my Colt.

Is there a link to that report anywhere? I'd like to see it.

And get the VEPR! I put 500 rounds through mine this weekend. It was great. I have the "full-size", I'm a skinny dude (not super strong) and have no problem holding up this "heavy" gun.

That's very, very interesting. I don't know why they'd be using VEPR's when they could get real AK's much easier. Did the VEPR have any accessories ?

I doubt very seriously they were terrorists outside of the US if it was a Vepr. The polymer furniture is made by Robinson Arm. in Utah. They make the stocks and put them on the Veprs when they receive them from Russia.

Now, they could be Mormon terrorists.....................

Hold everything! First, that aint my beloved Georgia. We don't have palm trees. Second, no it's not me....does look like some of my family in Egypt though. Third, screw you guys. And last but not least.....that's not a Vepr. Wrong FSB. Something sticking out under the barrel at FSB. Gap between trigger guard and mag release. Wrong hand-guard. Oh, and screw you guys.





ETA screw you guys.

ETA a special screw you to Johno.

ETA a pre-emptive screw you to Apache and firedog..............they should be here soon.

That looks like a Czech Vz.58 to me. I believe Nasser did some business with the Czechs back in the day, could be a leftover from the Egyptian military.

Backup is here STICK

Isnt that break on sideways? And is that the gas chamber on the bottom?
May be a JOKING build.

1. JohnO, If it was in Georgia the people would have a better tan.
2. Jicky, If he was shot by the police they wouldnt have been using ARSEnals for 2 reasons
. 1. The Iraqis cant afford ARSEnals.
. 2. If they could afford them they would be safe queens like all the ones in the states.
3. Bob1984, I guess VEPRs aren't real AKs becuase they are still built by Russians in Russia. And they would be using VEPRS cause they are better than your so called "REAL AKS"
4. 762Hurts, No they couldnt get a 762 VEPR cause they are none to be had.
5. Apache, Your getting smarter not trying to argue this subject anymore.
6. Firedog.....Nobody has lived to tell the answer to that!

Did I miss anyone?

Man the things that people try to get away with when I go a whole day without coming on here.

I told you Guys I could flush the other one out!



BTW,Brake on sideways,gas tube dropping down to the underside......................you'd think a Vepr would stand up to Battlefield conditions better than that.

I think I know why you Georgia guys like them Veprs. It goes back to the Civil War. Johnny reb had to use what ever he could, Enfields from England, captured Northern weapons and the home grown copies of Colts etc. They were some ugly weapons used. They probably were kept after the war, stocks had to get cut and modified,barrels shortened, all that stuff. Then newer milsurps were bought and had the same "customizing" done. The milsurp community refers to that as "done by Bubba",a Southern name. So you see,liking Veprs in an inherated thing.

You can't help it, it's in your blood. It's genetic.
