So I guess I am pretty interested in this a lot.
I love everything I have seen about the vepr besides the magazine.
I've been waiting patiently and talking on the forums a lot before I buy a high powered more accurate rifle.
My thing is I've always wanted a psl. I love the looks of its dragunov look choate (I belive that's the name of that style) wooden stock. Only thing keeping me from getting one once was I had a good friend of mine mention to me they are very bad about some ammo in 7.62 54r having to much powder pressure.
I don't want one I'm limited to worrying about it breaking or if the ammo I'm shooting will run the gun or blow up in my face because its old.
This makes the vepr sound even better to me. I've also never owned a rpk or a vepr. Heck I even talked to russian hammer a lot on chat and considered getting a fal. I really like the looks of the carry handles on rpks and fals. I also really like the saiga .308 a lot to, they both look pretty beast with how the mags are straight down.
I guess what I'm saying here and getting at is I'm pretty deadset on getting a vepr. ive owned alot of aks in 7.62x39 so im pretty used to banna mags and thats all ive ever had besides the saiga 12. Id like to buy one and convert it to my tastes. soon as soon as those 10 round mags are released and are available from purchase somewhere i will probley go ahead and get myself one. if anyone knows more about costs of a vepr to dragunov magwell conversion id be interested in getting some work done possibly if there are never any mags released higher than 5. My main reason is haveing a designated marksmen rifle capable of hitting decent groups at 500 yards or atleast mansize targets and way further hopefully. It just kinda sucks right now cause .308 is expensive 54r is cheaper for me and I can't do 5 round mags so its the first thing id want to get. But I am pretty deadset on getting a vepr soon I just hate the mags are different in single stack I don't know why they didn't just make it similar to the tigrs in the first place.
