I also have a few of it's brothers in 5.45, .308, and .223
bought the 7.62x39 first in the 20" VEPR II. Shot it the first time and went back and bought the VEPR K model, 16" carbine.
Liked that one so much I bought one in .223 and then 5.45. Added the .308 last. Back then you could pick one up for $519. Now, heard they were going as high as $1K.
Robinson Armament did a good job bringing them in and making them US compliant. I wish they would have left the rear end of the receiver squared off to make it easier to change stocks. But I did find the adapter from Ace Stocks. Haven't changed any of them yet, as I kind of like the look they have.
No, they're probably not for the AK afficianados out there, but then again, the RPK receiver, trunion, and barrels are right out of the MOLOT plant in Russia.
I also have a few of the Arsenal AK's, too, for the traditional look.
