Please elaborate or PM me bc now you got my wheels turning in a million diff directions. Just a few days ago I had never heard of the vepr, now you got me checking all my assets hoping something "makes sense"!
i took an ugly unconverted turd and polished it and turned it into gold.
I did alot but i only put $1300 in it. Ok heres what i did and list of parts;
Phoenix kicklite stock
Chaos titan quad rails
Tac47 gas plug
I polished the bcg
Added a charging handle
And i had it custom painted
I had a light, laser, and eotech on it to make it look awesome. I then looked up someone selling an ar and told them id trade for theyre ar plus cash. I picked a generic ar with very little work done to it. I told him i wanted his ar and $1500. Now of course i didnt expect that much i was just shooting high. He told me it was alot. I then pointed out every good thing about it and gave a description on why i added each piece. Every part served a purpose. I then pointed out every flaw of his ar, which was almost new judging by his bcg. Then i told him id make a deal. He then offered $1300 plus the ar. I told him that be fine but im taking off all my gear, which i wasnt going to give away any way. But then i offered him a drum which i paid like $50 for. He was more excited to make a trade and pay me then i was to get paid.
I then found a guy selling a Vepr 12 for $1800. I didnt have enough cash and he didnt want the ar. I talked him down to $1200, after long conversation. So at rhis point i had a Vepr 12, an ar 15 and $100 in my pocket. I knew the ar would sell i just had to find a buyer so i went to the gunshow. Out of everything there there was 4 veprs; 2 .308, 5.45, and a 7.62x54r. I wanted the .308 but one guy wanted $2000 and the other wanted $3000 and niether wanted the ar. So i talked to a diffrent dealer and got the 7.62x54r thinking it has a higher msrp then the others and they would gladly trade. The guy that wanted $2000 turned me down before i could even finish. The guy that wanted $3000 looked at my new vepr i had and was amazed. But heres were i effed up. In my excitement i forgot to take off the price tag. The guy seen it, looked at me back at his gun then back at me and shot me down. So i left there somewhat upset but at this point i had 2 veprs and $200 in my pocket from $1300. So i coulsnt be too mad. After a day of looking around i found a shop selling the vepr i really want so now i had to get rid of this one to get the other. He wouldnt trade and not many people wanted to but it. So i went to a lgs ans showed it to them with the mags factory sealed to prove i hadnt fired it. They never heard of a Vepr. So i gave them a little history, the very little iknow, and agian i pointed all the good about it. Now keep in mind i still have these two guns, and $200 in my pocket. The shop with the one i wanted was charging $1004 out the door. So the guys at the lgs offered me $950 and i took it.
I then called the other shop and talked him into throwing in free ammo. I paid and i should be picking it up today along with my free ammo.
So i took to these transactions like a game of chess and when i got hit with a curve ball i still came out on top with exactly what i want and $146 in my pocket.
Man that was a long 2 days lmao
