  1. Y’know, what’s legal really makes one wonder why anything isn’t.

    Most of our laws just don’t make any sense.

    • our laws are based on emotional knee-jerk responses to issues of the day in order to get attention so one can be reelected. Who really cares what the law is for or about right?

      “Its for the children. It is the safe way to go. It helps the environment and its America’s main-stream opinion (usually is not).”

  2. See the thing is, this pistol is okay to sell to the subjects as it sits. But if you put a piece of board on the end butt that fits into your shoulder, suddenly it becomes a murdering machine capable of completely destroying America, the world, and if left to it’s own devices long enough, the entire universe.

    Thank our lucky stars that kings and queens know what’s best for us peasants.

    • Are those the same Kings and Queens that exempted themselves from rules against Insider Trading last week? The rules are for the serfs and the peons….now I know why we are called peons……

      Oh and they said it was for National Security that they exempted themselves from the rule of law…..amazing…simply amazing…excuse me this peon thinks its raining into my boots.

    • You can attach said board to your firearm, as long as you’ve paid the King his $200 tax, and passed his back ground check and register it with his Gestapo so won’t have to look too hard for you and the rifle when needed.

  3. There was a time when if you had said they were selling an AK anything for 1500 bucks I would have laughed in your face. Sigh. I miss those days.

  4. You can get a decent AK where I live for 499$ now. Prices are dropping. Bullets aren’t. You might not have any bullets for it – but you can get the gun now.

  5. “tactical hand guard with attached flashlight that allows shooting enthusiasts to easily locate the target ”

    For… you know. Midnight target shooting in the Pine Barrens.

  6. I have to agree; there isn’t a single AK variant made that is worth $1500.00! Show me one that can hold a group smaller than a two pound coffee can at 100 yards, and after I pick myself up off the ground…I still won’t give you $1500 for it. They can’t hold a candle to the AR platform or many others. It is just a third world rifle an apparently, always will be.

    Even if someone made one that could group better, you are still stuck with trhe tuna can ammo…

    • Agreed. There are only two reasons the AK is still relevant this many years later: reliability and a low price. Take away one of those reasons and it’s useless.

    • That might be, but I’m still shooting, and when I burn up what I have, back to wal-mart for some more Tulammo at $5 a box. A dinner plate group beats an unused target any day of the week!

      • …but not at 1500 per piece. They are fun to shoot, aggravating when they don’t group and ugly as sin…but they do go bang.

    • For a AK to be worth that much, you would have to get into Krebs and Jim Fuller territory (f^ck spending gunbroker prices on WASRs)

      “Show me one that can hold a group smaller than a two pound coffee can at 100 yards,”

      Too easy.

      A Vepr can chew up group sizes like that all day long and they were sub 700 dollars once upon a time. My converted one sure as hell will keep up with most ARs out there in terms of accuracy.

      A Russian or Bulgarian Arsenal or Kvar will too. Even my SA85 with peep sights in 7.62×39 would be able to.

      AKs are far more accurate than many believe. A decently built one will compete with ARs.

      • I would have to see it to believe it. In this day and age, we have grown used to keeping 1 MOA and sub groups – regularly with AR units. I have yet to meet an AK in any configuration or with any amount of work that can keep up with that.

        I am not questioning your assessment, simply stating a fact; I have never seen nor been privy to anyone knowing of an AK with that capability.

        You will have to give me some spec/URL info. I would love to see it…sincerely.

        • “I would have to see it to believe it. In this day and age, we have grown used to keeping 1 MOA and sub groups – regularly with AR units. I have yet to meet an AK in any configuration or with any amount of work that can keep up with that.”

          I have seen few ARs keep 1 MOA especially since most are carbines or SBRs optimized for close quarters combat. A US military spec M4 carbine is a 4 MOA rifle. Most “1 MOA groups” creep towards 2-3 MOA once you fire 5-10 round groups (outside of the three realm).

          Hence, the Vepr has roughly equivalent accuracy at 2-4 MOA.

          Everybody on AR15.com shoots 1 MOA and its bullshit.

          “I am not questioning your assessment, simply stating a fact; I have never seen nor been privy to anyone knowing of an AK with that capability.”

          I never claimed AKs can shoot 1 MOA (although some platforms and derivatives CAN). You said a two pound coffee can, which is much larger than 1 MOA :\

          If you are talking about them shooting 2-4 MOA, then yes, this is well known within the AK74 community. Those are typical accuracy figures.

          “You will have to give me some spec/URL info. I would love to see it…sincerely.”

          Here’s one of a 308 super VEPR http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=113554

          Vepr 5.45

          A dirty little secret is that the AR15 fanbase will never admit the significantly cheaper AK74 is comparable in terms of accuracy.

          I guess when your ammunition costs 80 cents-1 dollar a round, you have to do some self justifying.

  7. Okay, so a question from a Brit with limited (compared to the readership here) firearms experience. What would actually you use one of these, or the other “rifle cut down to pistol-size” for?

    I can quite understand “have fun turning live rounds into empty cases”, which would be quite sufficient for anyone with the spare cash (one of these wouldn’t be my first preference, but if I were offered one as a gift I’d gladly accept). I’m just curious if there’s a more specific role for these; or if they’re just entertaining anomalies thrown up by US firearms laws.

    • Basically, the whole “AK Pistol” thing exists because adding a stock to a short barreled rifle makes it a NFA item, which requires registering with the ATF and paying $200 just for the privilege. It’s an easy markup for importer companies, because they just pull the stock off, tack a plate over the trunnion, and import it as a “pistol,” which saves them not only from importing a “restricted” firearm, but also from having to meet the other ATF-imposed 922R Compliance rifle restrictions. -That involves putting enough American-made parts into an import rifle to make it more American than import. Because everybody knows, right after short-barreled rifles, the next most dangerous thing is a rifle with more foreign than domestic parts in it.

      • If only they did just that… the FSB isn’t threaded on this or the first version of the SAM7K. The flash hider is pressed on, which is also fake by the way, see from the pictures how it is neither chrome lined nor effective in any way because the barrel extends INTO the flash hider rendering it a cosmetic feature only.

        I paid for the first version that doesn’t come with the $500 (which probably costs $30 to make) flashlight and I’m paying even more money to correct the aforementioned flaws. Yes, I am stupid, but in the long run I want to make an AR-M4SF out of this AK pistol.

  8. I put lead on steel consistently with my SLR-101S.. at 300 yards.. with iron sights.. with a round capable of stopping someone in thier tracks.. and I’ve never had a single failure, ever, with any AK. ever…… certainly worth the ~$1k for a battle proven rifle. ARs have thier advantages, but they come in the form of a squadron.
