    Legion Veper-12 SBS Ready ??

    I would assume so, if they're selling it as SBS-ready. Got any pics?

    So how rare are these gonna get

    Not exactly - RWC, the former importer of Kalashnikov Concern products (including firearms and accessories produced at Izhmash) plans to begin production of AK rifles, and possibly shotguns, in the US, using the Kalashnikov brand name. By executive edict, Izhmash/Kalashnikov Concern can't and won't have any interest in the venture.

    Form 4 to Form 4 in state transfer ?

    In-state transfer just takes a single tax stamp. Once the transferee receives the approved Form 4, it's registered to them - you'd better deliver it It's never been clear to me exactly how long you have to do so, as technically it's not longer registered to you.There's probably case law on the subject, if not actual regulations. I don't remember if you have to sign the outbound Form 4, too tired to dig one out right now. I don't believe you do, just the transferee.
  4. I'm a little confused. When you say pinned at 26" do you mean the muzzle device is permanently attached, and OAL of the barrel is just over 16"?
  5. that's a fine deal, and if I had the cash I'd snag them in a heartbeat.

    Saiga 12 part out

    Just out of curiosity - why was the receiver demilled?
  7. Mine is a 182 series as well. One nice thing on the AC-556 is that the burst resets when the trigger is released, and you have the choice of burst and full auto. Not so on M-16/M4. There are those times when FA is more useful than burst. (like that Hind-D taking a bead on you) I've seen select-fire AR platforms with both a burst and a full-auto setting - they're just not standard or even common. The AC556 is interesting because the safety is separate from the selector, unlike the AR and AK, where the safety and selector are the same.
  8. The big question for manufacturers is "Do I make more?". If I'm in the cartridge manufacturing business and I'm making M855 for the military I'm a happy camper. Then the military sales dry up but I can still sell to the civilian market. Everybody has 2 or 3 ARs these days so life is still good. But now there is a threat of a ban on manufacture, sale, and transfer to citizens. If I knew there would be a grandfather for ammo made before the ban I'd crank up the line and make as much as possible. But what if there is no grandfather? What if they just say "no more sales"? There is no grandfather clause, for anyone with an FFL. As soon as ATF formally declares it AP pistol ammo, it becomes illegal for anyone with an FFL to transfer it to anyone who is not either an approved LE/mil agency or has an approved reason for possession (like body armor testing), or another FFL holder.
  9. Newer ones are good rifles, but a poor value versus an AR. Mags, furniture, and pretty much every aftermarket part is more expensive and less likely to exist versus an AR. The rifles themselves cost more, most replacement parts can only be purchased from the manufacturer at high cost, and the older rifles suffer from a severe accuracy problem - if you only fire a few rounds in a minute, it isn't problematic. For some reason, once the rifle gets hot the accuracy goes to shit. I've fired a few older Mini-14s and an AC556 (select fire mini14), all of which suffered from the same problem. In burst fire, two or three short bursts heated the rifle enough that the spread on a shoot-and-see target became noticeably larger.
  10. It's stupid as hell. There is no logical point. It's an excuse to ban more shit. That's it. Just like the FDA pounces on any opportunity to classify and ban a new intoxicating substance as soon as it's invented, the ATF will always find new way to justify its existence by straining to invent new crimes.
  11. It would prevent licensed dealers from selling it. It wouldn't prevent you and me from trading it freely.
  12. It's probably a good idea to run a buffer if you're going to use a lot of hot ammo - and make sure you have it on the correct gas setting. Regular use of overly hot ammo, especially if the gun is overgassed, can cause the rear trunnion to crack, and can even cause receiver damage.
  13. Yeah, the stocks aren't really worth shit - they're a take-off part with no practical re-use I've seen yet. The forearms still hold some value. I can't remember who, but some online retailer was selling take-off Saiga stocks for $2 each a while back. Might've been Centerfire.
