You know how it goes, something catches your eye, you look...and look and next thing you know you gotta have one.

 

I understand there isn't a surplus of Vepr 54r rifles at this time for whatever reason.  I've seen some on GB but not anywhere else for the most part.  I see there are "I Want One" threads in this sub forum.

 

Are these at an end as far as importation?

 

Is it a "bite the bullet and pay the price" situation?

 

Do I just need to get past the "cheap ammo" thing and get a .308?

 

Enlighten me (if you don't mind).

 

Oh, and I have a Mosin already.

Our right to keep and bear arms - personally - is the essential element of political liberty, without which we would stand as mere slaves of any current administration, as do most of the people in the world today. We treasure our right to be armed, not only as defense against tyrants, but also as defense against evil men acting alone. Our right to defend ourselves against felons by force of arms protects not only our liberty but also - and this is often overlooked - our dignity. Dignity is a word not often used in the Age  of the Wimp, for by definition a wimp has no dignity.  But dignity remains not only desirable but essential to persons of consequence.  This concept is rejected by the socialist, who feels that dignity resides solely in the state. But we Americans are not socialists (at least most of us are not) and we prize our unique status in world society.

I have been drooling over the Vepr 54's Atlantic is advertising.

 

Just can't justify the expense right now.

I have my eye on the ones they spruced up and almost pulled the trigger but an ex-Army sniper instructor I know steered me toward a Remington 700 SPS Tactical which only comes in a right handed model which isn't necessarily a prohibitive factor...I didn't go that way yet either.  I understand a 54r and the Remington are two different things.

 

I just like the idea of a more potent round than the x39 in semi auto (and cheap ammo doesn't hurt either).

 

I did the "Notify Me" thing on the Atlantic site for the Vepr "Tactical", more are supposed to be available late this month or early next month.

It looks like these are available now but I haven't gotten a notification.

All customers that signed up to be notified via email have been sent an alter letting them know they were in stock . If you did not get one it is possible you were not signed up or possibly the email went to spam ?

I went through the process however it was laid out at the time.  I guess anything is possible but I keep a close eye on everything that comes to my spam folder because it has happened that non spam, important mail has come to it.

 

Moot point anyway, I got a 20.5" square back from you about a week ago.  I just posted it mainly for the benefit of others.
